OPI James Bond Skyfall Holiday Collection 2012 - Swatches and Review - Part 1

This holiday season, OPI celebrates the 50th Anniversary of a fellow world icon – James Bond – appearing in Skyfall. Starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem, this highly-anticipated twenty-third installment opens in theaters nationwide on November 9, 2012.  

Live and Let Die
Dark emerald green with a golden shimmer. Perfect 1 coater but I used a second just to be sure. I really love this one from the collection. 

The Spy Who Loved Me
Bright candy apple red that gives off a copper hue due to the golden shimmer. Great for the Holiday season. I used 2 coats.

You Only Live Twice
Cousin to The Spy Who Loved Me, but a much deeper red shimmer that almost looks like a foil.  The color is more in the magenta family and not as warm as it looks in the picture.  It reminds me of wrapping paper. I prefer this one over The Spy Who Loves Me, but it required an additional coat, for a total of 3.

The World is Not Enough
Pewter-copper base with light pink and green shimmer. This is a fun one and really pretty in the bottle but I think it's too matchy-matchy for my skin tone. The formula was different from the others in that it required 4 coats. I really wanted to love this one. I'll try it again later. 

On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Smokey pewter-blue with green and golden shimmer that's much prettier in person. The formula was on the thinner side and required 3 coats. 

The Living Daylights
  A multi-colored (copper, green and silver) hex glitter top coat.  I thought I would have problems with the application but it applied fairly smooth.  I thought this was a fun surprise to the add to the collection of mostly shimmers.  

My favorites from this half of the collection are: The Living Daylights, Live and Let Die and On Her Majesty's Secret Service
