Some OPI Skyfall Manicures

Good morning and happy Friday! Today's post is a big one, and it features a few different manicures that I've worn lately that feature the new OPI Skyfall Collection. I probably could have split them up, but I thought it'd be fun to try a spam post like this! Besides, I still have about half the collection left to share, so you'll get another post with those later.



This first manicure started with a base of The Spy Who Loved Me. I wore that color for my Halloween costume (I was a shark) and then added the fringe to the tips the next day using Casino Royale. I later realized that this looked a lot like Nailed It's Bleeding Blue gradient. Perhaps I channeled her unintentionally!

I was really impressed with The Spy Who Loved Me in particular, and I don't even usually like reds. This one is bright and beautiful, with a great shimmer that was hard to capture accurately. Casino Royale is a nice color too, though I much prefer it in direct sunlight or lamplight. It gets pretty dark when in shade.




Next we have a manicure of Die Another Day with an accent of Goldeneye. These two are probably some of my favorite colors from this collection. Die Another Day, a tomato soup orange-tinged red, is particularly stunning in direct light, appearing to glow from within like it would be hot to the touch.



Goldeneye is also lovely, with large gold fleck particles that sparkle in the sun.



On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a shade unique to my collection. It's a bit greener than my photos were able to capture, and has glints of gold accenting it.




My final manicure in this post is my favorite! I started with a base of two coats of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu, which is not actually from the Skyfall Collection but still a pretty and delicate shade. Then I added one coat of the Skyfall glitter, The Living Daylights. I took a photo at this point so you could see the glitter in its natural state.


Then, I made a jelly sandwich by adding one more coat of DTMTT. It completely changed the look of The Living Daylights and I absolutely love the way it came out. The colors of the glitter kind of remind me of a mallard!




The OPI Skyfall Collection is available now in professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($9.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

  6. Wow. Your jelly completely changed the look of The Living Daylights. Love it!

    I hear what your saying about unintentional channeling. I did the same thing with your diamond design during the 31 Day Challenge. When I saw it posted later by someone else, I 'doh'-ed.

  34. Wow! Are you a hand model?? Your hands and nails are perfect! When I go to other sites for nail art, I"m abhorred at the condition some of the hands are in, and it inspires me not at all. You've given me reason to always wear kitchen gloves when washing the dishes! :)
