I have mixed feelings about Black Friday. It’s the best and worst Friday of the year. It’s the best of course because it kicks off the holiday season which means massive sales. It’s the worst because the place I usually go for a break from life (read…the mall) turns into a zoo. But either way, today is Black Friday. And while I’m not partaking in any shopping this year, I of course had to have an appropriate manicure. Last year I did a more literal interpretation of Black Friday and wore petites COLOR FEVER Black Diamond. This year I wanted to try something a little less literal.
Live and Let Die is from OPI’s Skyfall 007 collection and is probably the polish I was most excited about from the Bondettes mini set. It looked unique and right up my alley. Luckily, I was right!
This polish is absolutely gorgeous! Live and Let Die is a blackened green with a bit of a blue undertone that is packed with greenish gold shimmer. The shimmer isn’t microglitter. It has a bit of a flaky look to it. Just gorgeous and so appropriate for this time of year. And despite the golden shimmer it looks pretty good against my pale skintone (even when I’m rocking a Hello Kitty bandaid).
The formula is also fantastic. I used two coats in my swatches though with careful application this could be a one coater.
So far I am definitely impressed with this collection. GoldenEye is pretty amazing but Live and Let Die is my favorite so far!
As always, there are more swatches below the jump!
