The Goldeneye of the storm...

3:47 PM



For the last few months or so I've been really unimpressed with the new collections.  The holiday collections are very same-y to me and even the things which are upcoming aren't really catching my eye. I skipped OPI's Germany Collection, only snagged one from the China Glaze Safari Collection and wasn't really interested much in the new OPI Skyfall line for the new James Bond film. Still I decided to make a store run and check it out in person, just 'cause, you never know.  I ended up buying four of these.  I got this golden fleck one called Goldeneye, the dark green shimmer you see in the picture called Live and Let Die, and two others: You Only Live Twice and The World is Not Enough.  I'm going to probably be swatching them all here over the next few days but for now, here's a little teaser.  One thing I love about the colors I got is that they make really amazing suedes.  Once I matted this green there was no going back. It's just stunning.  I really love this gold too because it's shimmery, sparkly, and looks really rich on my nails. I used butter LONDON's matte topcoat on this and it did a very nice job.  My go-to matte, Essie, is cheaper so I doubt I'll switch but I do love that the Butter London comes in a bigger bottle and has a longer brush.  Did you get any Bond colors?

    I'm having my exams this week so I haven't really been to shops lately. I guess I'm going to buy the gold one. It looks amazing.xx

    1. I'm a sucker for gold and this is an amazing one! Gold doesn't look great with my skin tone so I usually try to mix it with other things!

  2. I feel the same way about most collections. That being said that is one amazing combo!

    1. August! Wow!! I find that it helps to not buy based on the swatches online. A lot of times I buy things and then the reality is that they don't look as pretty when there isn't a macro lens right on them! I'm trying to buy only things which stun ON the nail. :) I was pleasantly surprised by these.

  5. I was really surprised by how much I loved the Bond collex. I know what you mean about all the uninspiring polishes coming out at the moment though.

  6. I have to disagree about the OPI Germany collection. That definitely had a few winner in there!! Goldeneye is nice, I've been considering getting it...still haven't yet though. I really love Skyfall from that collection.

    1. The only Germany ones that even caught my eye were Don't Pretzel My Buttons and Berlin Done That! lol...and those were pretty tame. They're pretty but I don't wear reds and I felt most were too similar to what I already have. :)

  7. I totally agree with you! I was not very impressed with most collections. I only snagged 2 polishes from the Germany collection and 3 from the Skyfall collection. I am looking forward to the Mariah Carey and the Euro Centrale collections though!
