OPI Skyfall Collection

This is an old collection from 2012. I was looking through another blogger’s swatches of the Skyfall collection and fell for some of the shades.

As I was looking online for the three shades I wanted, I realized that it would be more economical to get a mini set. That way, I could just buy the one full-sized bottle that isn’t available as a mini, instead of buying 3 full size polishes and wind up paying about $30 in total.

I think the set was $11 and the one bottle was $8.

The two shades I really wanted are TWINE (wow, this acronym is actually a word!) and LALD. Since I own hundreds of bottles of nail polish, minis seemed to be the way to go. I will most likely not finish a full bottle of either of these shades.

I couldn’t find a mini bottle of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, so I got the full size.

Live and Let Die is pretty much what I expected it to be on my nails: a dark forest green with subtle shimmer. TWINE is lighter than I expected. On my skintone, champagne pinkish taupes sometimes look a  little lighter. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is also lighter on my skintone. On other people, it’s a darker grey and the blue shimmer is more pronounced. The formula with this one was a little thin, but I was able to work with it. It covered well after three coats.

    I like the mini sets better because I never finish a whole bottle anyways!

    I have Goldeneye from this collection, and I can’t decide if I love it or not. It certainly has a golden glitter punch, but you have to put on a lot of layers to get the proper ‘Midas did my nails, yo’ effect…

    I’m loving LALD on you!
