It may come as a huge surprise  but I've never seen a Bond film. Ever. As much as Daniel tells me I'll enjoy them, I just have no interest in seeing them. What does interest me about the Bond films though, is the Bond girls. The clothes, the hair, the make-up all plastered across magazines in an attempted to help you recreate the look at home. What appealed to me in particular, is this OPI collection inspired by the latest 007 film, Skyfall. I've always loved the OPI mini collections, I think they are perfect way to try new colours, and I mean, who ever finishes a bottle of polish? This is like my fifth or sixth mini collection and I have to say this is possibly my favorite of them all.  The colours in this range are completely amazing, all with a slight glitter running through. Live and let die is a glossy black with a slight green tint to it, the world is not enough is a silver with a rosy pink glitter, the spy who loved me is a beautiful ruby red with red glitter and goldeneye is an awesome gold glitter with a gold leaf effect, but this is an actual polish and not to be confused with the man with the golden gun from the same range which is an actual 18ct gold leaf top coat. I think these are all totally wearable shades and there is definitely no runt in this litter. The colours are all perfect for the imminent party season and my current favorite is the spy who loved me, which is gracing my nails as I type. The consistency is perfect and totally opaque with a glossy finish after two coats, though I would still advise a top coat to prolong wear and to prevent chips. After three days wear I have no chips but slight tip wear but in the nail polish's defence I do, do a lot of typing, cleaning and my hands are constantly in an out of water so I've really put it through its paces. As I said, this is definitely one of my favorite OPI mini collections and I would recommend getting your manicured hand on it ASAP! Have you tried any of the colours from this OPI range? Which color is your favourite? I'd love to know! "believe in yourself"
