OPI Holiday 2012 Skyfall Collection Swatches & Review

Hello all. Today I have OPI's Holiday 2012 Skyfall collection to share with you. This collection was inspired by James Bond. This collection consists 12 polishes named after each James Bond movie to celebrate 50 years of James Bond. I was very excited about this collection because my father was a HUGE fan of James Bond. Each time I watch any James Bond movies I'm reminded of him :)

All pictures were taken indoors with flash.

GoldenEye is a yellow gold glitter. 3 coats. I really love this finish of this one!

The Spy Who Loved Me is a bright red with gold shimmes. 2 coats. This is a very bright color for fall, but I'm loving it. Red polish is really growing on me lately!

Die Another Day is a red shimmer with some orange undertones. 2 coats. This color comes to life. I love that it looks like it's actually glowing.

Casino Royale is a plum purple creme. 2 coats. Love the plum color! Casino Royale was one of my favorite movies!

You Only Live Twice is a shiny magenta with pink and gold glitters. 2 coats. This one is very shimmery and girly, I like it!

Skyfall is a brownish burgundy creme. 2 coats. A very interesting color! It's a bit hard to describe, it can be described as a dark brick red too.

Moonraker is a silver grey frost. 2 coats. Please ignore the smudge on my pointer and middle finger. This one was a little tricky to apply. It was the only one I had problem applying. It was very thick and it wouldn't settle onto the nail. It's a nice color, just wish the formula was better. There's also visible brush strokes.

 
Tomorrow Never Dies is bright purple shimmer with blue tones. 2 coats. Ooo! This one is very interesting, the picture with flash looks gorgeous, without flash you can see the purple more.


The Living Daylights is a silver, copper, and teal glitter in clear base. I did two coats over Tomorrow Never Dies. I love this glitter! Chunky glitters but not chunky enough to be scratching you. This is definitely a unique shade of glitter!

On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a smokey blue grey base with blue, green, pink, gold shimmer. 2 coats. A very interesting polish. When I first saw this it instantly reminded me of Zoya's Crystal. They can definitely be cousins though. Actually more like distant cousins lol

Live & Let Die is a blackened green with gold and green shimmers. 2 coats. The shimmer on this is insane!

The World is Not Enough is a silver brown base with rosey shimmer. 3 coats. Oh this is gorgeous!

I am very impressed with this collection! The colors are beautiful and the formula were great. Well aside from Moonraker, all the other polishes were perfect. The formula applied very well with no issues. OPI did a great job on this collection. My favorite is The Living Daylights, GoldenEye, Casino Royale, actually I loved all of them. If Moonraker's formula was good I would've loved it too!

Well this is all I have for today, what do you guys think of this collection?

  2. I just have to say that I need The Living Daylights! Now that I can see how it looks on, it's on me to do list. I'm just wondering, do you have trouble getting your chunky sparkles off? I really do... I'm a polish addict, but removing it is the bane of my existence. It's hard to recognize as a necessary evil I guess...
