NOTW OPI ‘Skyfall’ - Skyfall Holiday collection 2012

Mackenzie’s Notes

The new 2012 holiday OPI collection Skyfall has recently been released to celebrate 50 years of James Bond and the upcoming Skyfall movie (to be released November 7) and I couldn’t wait to try on some of the shades! This new collection has very opulent, deep rich colors, perfect for the holidays; you will find two cremes, a metallic, four glitters and some shimmery shades.  This collection seems to cover lots of finishes and I appreciate that! But if you’re a gal that sticks to light or sheer naturals, this collection might not be for you. These polishes retail for $8.50 (0.5 oz) at some drugstores, beauty stores and online.

It’s a deep maroon color with red undertones, so beautiful!

 The color I chose is called ‘Skyfall’ and to be honest it was a nice relief to not have to spell or say ‘Dusseldorf’, ‘Knockwurst’, ‘Nein Nein’ when looking for this color and blogging about it. On to the formula, it’s great as usual for Opi, but it might seem a little bit runnier than your ideal creme finish and could streak, so you have to be careful with it when applying. At the same time I enjoy the fact that is sheerer than it looks because it keeps that deep rich red color instead of turning into black with two coats. This color is a creme finish and is a dark maroon, red based with some brown and black undertones.  This color would look great on many skin tones and is great for the Oxblood trend that’s so popular these days. I hope you enjoy and try this color, it’s so nice!

My best take on a Skyfall Bond agent! Relax, it’s only a belt buckle 😉
Oxblood color
This color looks great against metallic taupe colors like this clutch!
