The new James Bond Movie – SKYFALL has been all over the media lately. October 5th was dubbed James Bond Day, so it was only fitting to release Adele’s latest single from the movie and the new James Bond 007 cologne for men. My favorite 007 launch was the new OPI SKYFALL Collection. It’s sexy and mysterious just like the Bond Girls. The collection is divided into two main groups – The Seductive Shades and The Dangerous Shades. The Bondettes Kit came loaded with two shades from each side. Let’s Review, shall we!
OPI GoldenEye is a sparkly glitter gold nail color. It took three coats to achieve this level of opaqueness. It’s very similar to the MAC Marilyn Monroe Rich, Rich, Rich polish.
OPI The Spy Who Loved Me is a romantic red. It has a little bit of glitter in it that adds a hint of sparkle. The formula is great, the first coat glides on smoothly and is very bright.
OPI The World Is Not Enough – a gorgeous rosy silver shade. Gunmetal meets mauve with a dose of glitter. It took three coats to get it to look this rich.
OPI Live and Let Die is the color of Bond’s private jet! It’s a dark shimmery black-green color. This shade is similar to Essie’s Stylenomics – but with added specs of glitter.
GoldenEye and The Spy Who Loved Me are both part of The Seductive Shades and The World Is Not Enough and Live and Let Die are both members of The Dangerous Shades.
Can’t wait to see SKYFALL, it hits theaters November 9th!

Essie Boxer Shorts is the pop of color in this limited edition collection. It’s a gorgeous deep lavender blue color. The formula is creamy and glossy. You get a solid first coat that’s streak-free. This color is so pretty and really looked bright with the contrast of my summer tan. But at the same time, it still has an earthy richness to it, that richness is what makes it work with the fall season. With its athletic theme, it seems like this collection was launched just in time for the Olympics. I just love the manicures on the Olympic swimmers, have you been watching?
Essie Camera is a bright neon coral pink
Essie Action is a bright neon yellowish-orange
Essie Bazooka is a bright neon orange
I love how all the colors in this collection compliment each other; but these polishes look dull without a top coat, so make sure to apply one to achieve the ultimate neon trend. Essie Bazooka is also very similar to Essie Orange, It’s Obvious. All in all, it’s a fun collection!
Essie Tour de Finance – Spring 2012 Collection
I just could not wait to review this gorgeous color! My nails are not even completely dry yet and I absolutely adore this polish color!
Tour de Finance by Essie is a super glossy cool magenta pink. It is slightly iridescent and very shiny. It’s perfect for spring. This color is similar to Essie’s Super Bossa Nova which launched last summer, but it’s a bit lighter.
Update: My manicure lasted almost a full week and the high gloss shine was still visible on day three. All in all, I think I will definitely go back to this color again through out the spring and summer!
