OPI Skyfall Bondettes Swatches

I just saw "Skyfall" last weekend and Bond Girl Severine was rocking some killer nails that inspired me to finally swatch the box of OPI Skyfall Bondettes that I bought back in October. I think I was far more interested in these lacquers than I was in the movie! This OPI mini set features two polishes from each of the Skyfall groups, the warm-colored "Seductive Shades" and the cool-hued "Dangerous Shades." Check out the swatches and reviews of Goldeneye, The Spy Who Loved Me, The World Is Not Enough and Live and Let Die below.

The Spy Who Loved Me
Named after the 1977 film starring the longest-serving Bond actor Roger Moore, The Spy Who Loved Me is a bright, vivid red with a gold-tinted shimmer. It has a jelly-like formula, though definitely more opaque than a traditional jelly polish.

The World Is Not Enough
Even after inspecting this color for quite a while, I'm still not sure how to describe this color. OPI calls it a "rosy silver," but to my eye it's more of a bronze-pink with hints of gold and silver. It wasn't as opaque as I had hoped (pictured below is two coats), but the color is definitely unique.

Live and Let Die
When I'm itching to paint my nails a dark metallic, this may become my go-to shade. Live and Let Die is a dark, inky black with a greenish/blue tint and great formula.

I'm definitely not a gold person and this was the only shade I wasn't excited about trying. While I really liked the formula (a glitter that wasn't difficult to remove!), this shade just isn't for everyone. It's a vibrant gold that clashes badly with my skin tone, although I think others, like Wendy, might be able to rock this look.
