OPI Skyfall Collection for Holiday 2012 - Swatches

The holiday collection by OPI is dedicated to celebrate 50 years of James Bond and is named after the latest James Bond movie called Skyfall. There are 12 shades in this collection and also 3 magnetic polishes. Today, I will be sharing the Seductive shades from the Skyfall Collection.


THE SPY WHO LOVED ME
This is a red-orange shade with red and golden glitter. The formula was great as it went opaque on just two coats.



CASINO ROYALE
This is a vampy deep purple polish with cream finish. Its more bright than I expected and is a gorgeous shade for winter season. I am always keen on navy and purples for winters, so this will be a great addition to my collection. I am wearing three coats for the pics below, because I could see some bald spots with two coats.




YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE
This is a fuchsia with dominant red tones and glitter. Its my favorite from this collection. I wore it with a black dress on my birthday and the metallic shine it has along with golden and pink glitter, takes it to a whole new level. I don't know if this is a totally unique shade but its a really gorgeous one to own. When I wore this the first time, I felt like wearing Dorothy's shoes on my nails lol..the sparkle of this one is really amazing!




GOLDENEYE

Its a golden glitter polish on a clear base. The glitter in it is not chunky, so I could apply three coasts to get a full opacity. Although its a gold glitter polish, it reflects bronze around the edges of the nails which really makes it unique.



DIE ANOTHER DAY
This is another stunning shade which goes opaque even on a single coat. I am wearing two coats for the swatches but I strongly feel the subtle shimmer in it that adds a satin shine to it is missing in the pics below. Glitter is often difficult to photograph, at least for me. This deep orange shade is definitely a keeper, this holiday season :)



SKYFALL
Here comes Skyfall!! I can't wait to watch the movie. I think its releasing Nov 9th in the US and Canada. The shade is a seductive, deep maroon shade in creme finish. I have had a similar shade in the past and this classic beauty is a must have for winters. 




So overall, I love the Seductive shades from the Skyfall Collection by OPI. These are so feminine and wearable. The glitter shades are outstanding and even the cream formulas are great. Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know about your favorites!! <3
