left to right: 'live and let die' | 'the world is not enough' | 'goldeneye' | 'the spy who loved me'
my favourite polish of the collection is 'live and let die'. it's a beautiful sparkly black with green and silver undertones, and looks so lovely on my pale skin. from afar it looks like a plain black but then it shimmers with such stunning colours in the light, i LOVE it. 'the world is not enough' is another polish that i loved; a shimmery silver with green, pink, purple tones. i thought this was kind of a unique and interesting take on a nude or subtle nail colour and it is so beautiful on.
'goldeneye' is the only polish that i wasn't head over heels with. firstly, it looks very opaque in the bottle, but is definitely more of a glitter top-coat when actually applied on the nails. i also found it quite difficult to take off; o.p.i. clear coats are incredibly strong, which is what the gold glitter flecks were suspended in, so it took me a while to get all the glitter off. however, it is gorgeous, and i think it would look lovely over a pale polish (perhaps models own 'utopia'?). the last polish is 'the spy who loved me', which i was avoiding using, to be honest. in the bottle it looks like a very strong red with gold flecks, which i didn't think would suit me, but on the nails it is actually a beautiful dark raspberry red and i ADORE it.
my only complaint with these polishes is that they are all sparkly and contain really fine glitter. other than 'goldeneye', i had no problem removing any of them, but i did notice that the glitter went all over my fingers when i was taking the polish off. i'm not sure if this is more of a comment on my nail polish remover than the actual nail polish, but i felt like it was worth noting.
so that is it! i hope you guys found this useful. please let me know if you bought any of the 'skyfall' polishes and what you thought of them. this is only a small sample of the 'skyfall' range so i'd love to read your reviews on the others - please link them below! thank you so much for reading! xx
