Continuing with today's Liquid Sand theme, I have the six polishes from the OPI Bond Girls Collection to share! Each inspired by an iconic Bond girl from the James Bond movies, these polishes are unique and fabulous. Be sure to sound off and let me know which ones you are liking the most in the comments.
Honey Ryder is a pale neutral gold with a sparkly, sandy finish. I was surprised by how much I liked this one - when it dried it looked like the surface of a nugget of fool's gold. I used two coats.
Pussy Galore is a pale pink. When I first checked out this collection I fully expected this one to be a "dislike" for me. I wanted to give it a fair chance though, so I wore it for a full day. I have to say that while I didn't do a complete 180 on it, I did end up seeing the merit! It worked well with my skintone and dried down to a lovely, non-frosty finish. Two coats.
Jinx. JINX JINX JINX. Everyone needs Jinx. It's absolutely my favorite Liquid Sand polish I've tried so far. The coral color is great on its own but what makes it absolutely stunning is the addition of the gold shimmer. I wore this for a day and could not stop looking at it. Two coats.
Solitare is a snowy white accented with small silver glitters. I love white polishes in general, so a white textured matte was a lot of fun for me to wear! I did need three coats for this one, as it was on the sheerer side, and the additional coat meant extra drying time.
Vesper is a really interesting blackened purple base with black glitters. It mostly just looks black here, but in person you can see the purple in certain lights. I put this one on a nail wheel, too, and a day or so later it had dried further and the purple had become even more apparent.
Tiffany Case is a frosty light blue. There's just something cool about this one that I can't express easily. Maybe it's the matte metallic finish that is making it difficult for me? It's icy but still bright and pigmented, not muted at all. I used two coats. Unfortunately I do have to note that I had a little staining when I went to remove this, so apply at your own risk!
I found the formula on all of these to be pretty similar. They are a little thick but easy to control, and the thickness doesn't matter because they dry down quite a bit.
My official Chalkboard Nails picks? Jinx and Honey Ryder. If you are into pinks, Pussy Galore is worth a look, too, though they are all really great and it kind of just depends on your personal preferences. Which Bond girl would you rock on your digits?
