OPI James Bond - Goldeneye

I am a bit late to the James Bond bandwagon, but I just had to show you this beauty. Goldeneye is a foil - but it is unique in its texture. It contains flakes of metal, which lay upon each other and give it a super shiny foil effect. It's very similar to OPI Simply Smashing from the Serena Williams collection - same texture, but SS is more of a tennis-ball green colour, where this is a very warm sunset gold. It's solid in 3 coats, the base is a whole lot more yellow than it seems on the nail - the metallic particles balance the color quite well. 
It did not look as nice as I wanted on my skin tone  but that not the fault of the polish. If it was a tiny bit less yellow, I might like it more. However, with impressive texture, application and a brilliant shiny finish, I would still wear it.
What was your favourite polish from the James Bond Collection?


  1. I think it looks great on you! :) we don't get current collection of OPIs in full size bottles, only the mini sets here but I'm looking forward to get Is That Silva? the silver magnetic (which we also got here \o/). I had avoided the magnetic bandwagon but this one has holo particles. It just called me, man.

    If we ever get them, I'd also love to get the mini set from this collex :)

    1. Thanks!
      That magnetic looks very nice, holo particles especially! I know what you mean about the magnetic bandwagon... I got 2 polishes myself, but mostly I've avoided them. Silva looks fantastic though

  2. I wore this polish in my best friend's wedding I was recently in. She said neutral tones, and hey gold is neutral right?! I got so many compliments on it, I hated to take it off!
