I may be one of the last people to review this collection but I don’t care! 🙂 As many of you know I spent Christmas in the States meeting my future in-laws. While there my uh-mazing fiance gifted me TONS of nail polish for my birthday/Christmas! I couldn’t wait to get home and enjoy it all!
When I got home I impatiently swatched about a million polishes frantically trying to ‘capture’ them all. I kind of burnt out after a few days. Then I started to wonder why I was so eager to swatch them at all? I mean, when can you enjoy the polish if you’re just putting it on and off like a robot? It’s not that I don’t enjoy swatching and reviewing polishes it’s just when there are so MANY new polishes to enjoy why not just chill out and wear some of them for more than 30 mins? That’s just me! I enjoy seeing everyone’s swatches so plz don’t take any of this personally.
I’m posting about the Skyfall collection and originally I was gonna swatch each one bla bla bla but now I’ve decided to be disorganised and just have fun. So far, I’ve only worn two of the polishes, excluding the 18 carat gold topcoat., which I LOVE
I wore this Thursday to work. I love the peppy shade it’s a tangy orange-y shade which is still reddish enough not to be garish. It was the perfect shade to build up to Friday! It applied really smoothly and needed only two coats. I gotta say OPI’s still my favourite brand for quality and ease of application.
I HAD to try out The Man With The Golden Gun! I was so excited! I think it turned out well and I do really love it but next time I think I’ll use more. It’s kind of hard to know what’s on the brush as you can’t see into the bottle. Also, sometimes not a lot comes out and you have to get rid of the clear polish to get to the golden parts. It’s a great polish, it just needs a little care when applying.
More posts on this collection coming your way in the future! Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
I love Christmas!! 🙂 My nails are making me smile today. My birthday is Christmas day so it’s always been a really special day for me.
I googled Christmas nail art and a version of this manicure caught my eye. I swapped silver glittery polish for silver nail tape. You can check out that manicure here.
This is a subtle Christmas manicure. The snowflakes look great when the light hits them.
I used Konad stamping plate m59 and silver and gold Konad stamping polish. The green is Sally Hansen Xtreme wear and the red is OPI’s Color So Hot It Berns. I really love how the snowflakes turned out. My nails remind me of wrapping paper! 🙂
Last week while shopping in Gangnam, Seoul I came across these beautiful glittery polishes in a store called Aritaum. These are Aritaum’s Modi Glam Nails. They were so eye-catching I had to buy them. I’m just sorry I only bought three! They were 3,500 Korean Won each. That’s roughly $3 USD. Bargain! 🙂
The thing that surprised me the most about these polishes is that one coat was enough! They are JAM PACKED with glitter and bits and pieces. If you scroll down and check out my macro shots of each bottle you can clearly see this. So each manicure was simple and took the minimum amount of time! That’s a win for me.
The pink base coat is OPI’s Strawberry Margarita.
Look at all that inside!!
I think this manicure would be really great for a Christmas party. Some of the pieces of glitter were quite large. The red base coat is OPI’s Color So Hot It Berns.
Mmm full of glittery goodness.
Here’s my last swatch. This glitter would go with any colour but I love how it looks with light and dark purple. That dark purple is OPI’s Louvre Me Louvre Me Not.
Can you see how jam-packed each one is with glitter? I may just have to go back and get some more this weekend!
