Throwback Thursday – Skyfall’s Severine

Remember my post about finally procurring some of the lovely OPI Bond shades?

Around that time, I decided I wanted to grow my nails out with the specific purpose of attempting the lovely Severine’s manicure. I just could not take my eyes off her nails while watching the movie! Unfortunately, I’ve got some stubby nails now (hence the lack of posting on my part), so it’s a good thing I tried out the look then.

Here’s a pic of the gorgeous Bond girl and her talons for reference.

Swatch Sunday

For my birthday, my lovely mother got me the three metallic Bond polishes released by OPI. I used Bond…James Bond and Morning, Moneypenny in previous manis, but didn’t get very good pictures of either 😦 So I will be doing all three colors again!

We’ll start with Is That Silva?

JB - Silva 1

 

JB - Silva 2

 

JB - Silva 3

 

I really like the magnet that came with the polish. Most other magnetic polishes have their magnet in the cap, but this was completely separate. It has a ridge on the edge so that your nail doesn’t touch the magnet, and is very easy to squeeze with other fingers in order to achieve perfect distribution of the effect.

JB - Silva 6

 

JB - Silva 7

 

The holographic sparkle in this polish is incredible, and the magnet was super strong! I seriously can’t find a bad thing to say about any of the three colors, but I think this one is my absolute favorite!

OPI Skyfall Collection – Updates!

The highly anticipated Skyfall Collection by OPI (also known as the James Bond Collection) is this much closer to being released. The every fabulous Ommorphia Beauty Bar has put up some beautiful swatches. Here’s part 1 and part 2!

The first half of the collection does not fail to impress. I am so in love with every single color and I cannot wait for part deux!
