Swatches & review: OPI The Skyfall collection

Hi everyone! Today I have a few nail polishes from OPI's upcoming Skyfall collection to show you :) I'll cut the chit chat and dive straight into it!

First up is my absolute favourite Live and let die. OPI described this as an almost black green and I've gotta admit they were spot on with this. It's almost black but not dark enough to miss the green tinges. And omigosh, the yellow flecks! They make the polish so much more interesting and to die for! This baby is so opaque that my swatches show ONE coat. Formula was perfect, if a little thicker than I'd prefer, but I can't complain if it's going to be this opaque ♥

Next up is The world is not enough. I had high expectations of this as it looked like a duochrome from the press release photos. It's not quite as strong, but there is still a colour shift...if you look closely. It does show up much better in person - my camera just wasn't able to capture it, no matter how many photos I took. This was three thin coats and lovely formula, once again. I expect nothing less from OPI in terms of formula :)

The polish I was most looking forward to was The living daylights. I can't say I'm such a big fan of it seeing it in person but maybe I just need to work on the layering combinations :P I know I'll need to try this over a plain black though, that's for sure! Below, I've layered one thick coat over Live and let die.

I received only three nail polishes for review but if the rest of the collection is anywhere like the ones I have now, I know I'll be reaching for my wallet when it is officially released ;)

Which polishes are you most looking forward to?

Thanks for reading.

    Live and Let Die is almost an exact dupe for Nars' Night Clubbing!

  5. Living Daylights gets my vote - glitter will do it every time and this one is unique!

  6. I'm glad you're looking forward to it, but is your wallet? ;)

  7. Totally! I know I'll be buying more of the rest when it comes out :D

  8. Ohhh, hope your wallet is ready for it! :P

  9. Ooh, I don't own the Nars but Live and Let Die is so awesome :D

  10. It is a rather unique combination! I can't way to play with its layerings :)

  11. Have you tried the duochrome over black? That usually gives the best results for me... I have the other two as well, they're so gorgeous! :)

  12. OMG live and let die! AMAZING!

  13. loveeeeee!!! on her majesty's secret service is my favourite colour that i've tried so far!! SO amazing!

  14. Wow! I am so excited for this nail polish.

  15. Oh, that's a good idea. I'll definitely do that next time I wear it :)

  16. Ohh, I know I'll be needing more from this collection ;)

  17. Live and Let die is so gorgeous!! The world is not enough is also not bad, although it's not a duo chrome I think it's still looks pretty :) However The Living Daylights does not really catch my attention so I can save up a bit :D

  18. I'm glad you can save what little money you can with this collection! :P Most of them look especially drool worthy and I so neeeeeeed them!
