OPI Skyfall Collection – My Picks & Swatches


Most brands have released their Christmas/Holiday Collections. This year OPI is releasing a James Bond themed collection. OPI Skyfall consist of 12 shades of cremes, shimmers and glitters. I am not a big fan of James Bond so this collection does not really excites me. However there are few shades that caught my attention. Initially I didn’t plan to get it but after looking at the those polish in person, I couldn’t resist to get these shades.

I picked three colors from Skyfall Collection – The Spy Who Loved Me, Golden Eye, The World is Not Enough.

The World is Not Enough

It’s a dark shimmery taupe. The color somehow looks charcoal in some lighting. The formula was nice but it’s quite sheer. I applied 3 coats for this swatch.

I did a comparison swatch between The World is Not Enough, Number One Nemesis and My Private Jet. I thought it was going to be very similar but I was wrong. My Private Jet has the best formula among the rest. It’s the most pigmented.

Golden Eye

I am in LOVE with this shade. This shimmery golden polish is just wow! I didn’t expect that I would love this one as much as I do now. It’s very festive looking and I think the color is unique compared to many golds that have been released before. The color dazzles beautifully. The formula of this polish is very nice, it’s better than The World is Not Enough. It applies smoothly and opaque in two coats.

The Spy Who Loved Me

I know I have to get this one when I saw the swatch for the first time. Red is my all time nail polish color. The Spy Who Loved Me is a creme red polish with micro gold glitters. It’s so difficult to capture the micro gold glitters on my nails but in real life you can see them clearly. The formula of this is just flawless. It’s very easy to apply. It’s opaque in one coat but I applied two coats to have the perfect nail look.

Final Thought:

These three colors are very nice color with good formula. If I would have to choose one favorite color from this collection, it has to be The Spy Who Loved Me.

    You certainly picked great shades! My favorite probably has to be The World is Not Enough. I do like Goldeneye as well, but it looks a bit too yellow.

  3. I am in love with The World is Not Enough right now. You’re right–it does look charcoal to me but in the best way possible. It’s sooooo pretty! I need that one!
