OPI Goldeneye

I picked up this miniature bottle of OPI's Goldeneye nail polish while I was in the States last week as part of the Skyfall 'Bondettes' miniature polish quartet, and I think it's absolutely perfect for the upcoming festive season. 
Gold nails can be tricky to perfect, but this seems to be somewhat of a hybrid finish - somewhere between a traditional glitter and a gold-leaf effect.

I love the miniature OPI polishes. They are perfect for more unusual colours as I rarely use up a whole bottle, and they're cheaper too! I picked up the set for $12.50 (approx £8).

The application of this is opaque in two coats. The wear time is about average on me (4-5 Days) and removal is slightly easier than with your traditional, chunkier glitter polishes.

What do you think? Have any of you picked up any colours from the OPI Skyfall collection?

  5. I really love these finer glitter polishes. Like you say, they're a lot easier to remove and you can' beat a bit of sparkle a this time of year <3 Probably going to treat myself to this now that I've seen it on.

  37. That's a great price for OPI nail polishes!

  38. I love that gold polish! I have a gold one from OPI's Kardashian collection. I think it's called Disco Dolls. It's gold glitter with slightly larger flecks of green and read. I'd like to find something similar to this shade of gold though. I think I'd get more use out of it.

  43. Such a vibrant gold! I need to stock up on those miniature polish sets...so much more convenient than the regular sizes.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have this color too! It went on a little thin for me and needed more than two coats. But the name alone makes me love this polish... so many days I spent in my youth playing Goldeneye on N64!

  47. I just painted by nails with this, and I LOVE it! I had to use 3 coats for opacity, but it's so worth the extra effort/time spent. Gorgeous color!

    Keep calm and carry lipstick.

  48. I LOVE this nail polish! Gold is such a festive color and it really really suits you! This reminds me off Kate Moss in her recent red carpet appearance here :)

  66. Loved this review, but GoldenEye wasn't my fave! I preferred The Spy Who Loved Me, because it's such a lovely Christmassy red :)

  70. Hi Fleur, I'm Sara from Italy! I always watch your videos on youtube and I like them :)
    I have a beauty blog too, which is named "Le Divagazioni di una fatina ARANCIONE" ("An orange coloured little fairy's digressions", I hope I translated it well!). Since I don't own Goldeneye, and I'm writing a post about gold nail polishes, I hope you don't mind if I take one picture of yours to show to my readers how this polish looks like. In case that bothers you, please tell me and I'll remove the picture!
    xoxo
