Celebrating 50 years of James Bond with OPI
OPI Skyfall Collection ♥ 007 Fever

If you hadn't recently noticed or been hidden inside your secret lair, 'Bond Fever' has hit us worldwide this month, with James Bond celebrating its 50th year in film with the premier of Skyfall featuring my favorite James Bond, Daniel Craig. The film itself is a must see if you haven't seen it already! To celebrate this achievement many companies have collaborated with Bond to incorporate their products into this exciting launch and in the beauty world, OPI have again wowed us with another limited edition collection.

OPI Skyfall Collection 2012

OPI have already launched a few 'film themed' collections previously but I have to say this one is a favorite of mine and great for this time of year as it fits in perfectly with all the current fashion trends for the autumn/winter.
I held back purchasing all of the shades in this collection and instead purchased the most striking colours which are just gorgeous (like 007 himself) and unlike any other shades in the OPI normal color collection. Along side these shades, OPI have also launched a limited edition real 18k gold top coat appropriately named 'The man with the golden gun' (amazing!).

The Collection & Swatches

This Topcoat contains small flecks of real 18k gold to add a subtle golden touch to the nails. It really needs to go over a deep shade to really stand out and two coats are definitely needed for this to show up. Remember it is supposed to be subtle, so don't expect it too be full on gold or you may be disappointed. It may seem to be a gimmick I must admit but great to own if you are an OPI fan like myself or just fancy a change from a normal plain topcoat with this bling-tastic edition instead.

If you don't already know I am a huge OPI fan, they are my favorite nail brand as they never fail to deliver beautiful, unique, luxurious nail shades that get you excited about painting your nails or make you go book in for a OPI manicure.

These pictures don't exactly do the colours their exact justice as in real life these are extremely sparkly up close. 
So, OPI have indeed pleased me with this 007 inspired collection and think that it is really appealing to everyone with its selection of autumnal shades.
