NOTD: OPI James Bond – The Living Daylights

Today I have an absolute corker of a nail polish for you!

As I have mentioned before I am a bit partial to a James Bond film, and also glitter.

When the Bond range came out just before Christmas I was head over heels in love with it all but unfortunately at the time completely penniless.

I’ve made a dent in collecting them since getting a job and only have a few more to get now, if anyone knows of anywhere still selling them could you let me know??

So here’s my glittery favourite!

This is The Living Daylights.

I have to confess i am yet to see this film, but the nail polish is certainly making me lean towards watching it due its beautiful colours.

This is an unusual glitter containing silver, gold, bronze and teal coloured hexagon shapes.

The light hits off it wherever you are and the colours, though seemingly a bit of a different choice, actually go really well together and due to the different number of metallic glitter particles go with so many outfits!

Even in the bottle it looks like a kaleidoscope and I feel like a magpie looking at it!

It does require 3 coats for a fairly opaque covering but as you can see they are pretty big pieces and it does apply quite easily.

I find I wear this one at the weekends more, as although I do sometimes wear glitter to work this one is a little too over the top for that (unless you work somewhere that has minimal uniform rules!).

This one is best suited to a night out or a weekend out with the girls.

I am wearing it this weekend whilst meeting up with a friend I haven’t seen for a while, so looking forward to it!

Have you tried this polish or any of the other Bond polishes? Do you love collections from films like this?

I’m a sucker for them and I also wanted the Snow White Diego Della Palma palette, and will hopefully getting my hands on the Urban Decay Oz palettes…..but we will see!

    This is so pretty, would probably look lovely over a black or white base too. The pnly annoying thing about glitter polishes is getting them off, but I think it's worth it :)Mel
