OPI Live and Let Die

When the first swatches popped up for the OPI Skyfall collection, I immediately knew I had to have Live and Let Die. A pine-teal leaning green base filled with golden-greenish flecks? Yes please!

Colors like these always have been a favorite of mine and I am happy to see more and more of them in collections, though usually they are creme's  That's what I love most about this shade, the gorgeous flecks that add so much luxury to the look!

There is a big downside to this polish though: it had chipped on 3 corners the next morning already. I paint my nails at night. They were small chips and didn't look to noticeable, but nevertheless, where did they come from?

I will wear this polish again and check if different base or topcoat makes a difference in the wear. The shade will end up in my top something this year though!

Do you own any OPI Skyfall polishes? And which one is your favorite?

    I only bought a couple of the Skyfall polishes because not that many jumped out at me. I did get Live and Let Die because it is GORGEOUS! :)

  2. I bought this one on my 2nd passing of the collection thinking it might sell out and then I would be sad I had not bought it - oh how many times do I need to do this to tell myself I don't need 2 and 3 back up bottles esp when it's a shade I don't think I will wear a ton...as of yet have not worn this one - might put it on for Halloween as not going anywhere despite it's my birthday on the 31st. I am loving OHMSS, Die Another Day, Tomorrow Never Dies & Golden Eye. I put on Die Another Day with the gold leaf topper over it and I cannot stop looking at my nails - most of the shades in this collection were a hit with me - did not pick up the glitter, skyfall or Moonraker - but have the rest of 'em.

  3. Absolutely stunning!!!! Too bad about the chipping though. I paint my nails at night also, so when I wake up with chips, I'm not a very happy camper.

  12. You bought multiple bottles? You silly girl! And yes, the gold leaf topper... I couldn't bear myself spending so much on one polish.
