OPI Bond Girls Collection Swatches and Reviews

OPI has partnered with EON Productions to come out with another Bond Collection!  This time – Bond Girls!  OPI Bond Girls is made up of 6 gorgeous Liquid Sand polishes named after some of the most iconic Bond Girls that we’ve all come to know and love from the Bond movies over the last 5 decades.

I loved the Skyfall Collection, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Bond Girls Collection!  I received this in the mail yesterday from OPI to review and I couldn’t wait to dive in!

Ready for the swatches for this amazing collection?  Let’s do it!

Pussy Galore:

I’m kicking off with the polish whose name will either make you wrinkle your nose in disgust or giggle like a 5 year old… love it or hate it – this wouldn’t be a Bond Girls Collection without one of the most iconic women of the Bond Films.  Pussy Galore is a  baby pink with brighter pink glitter throughout.  Unlike other OPI Liquid Sands I’ve tried in past collections, this doesn’t have the squishy jelly like base, its more of a metallic type cream.  I only needed 2 coats for this polish.  No top coat was used.

Solitaire is a pale silvery white frost  base with silver glitter throughout.  Very classy looking and I love it!  I only needed 2 coats for Solitaire.

Honey Ryder:

Honey Ryder is a gorgeous gold metallic with glitter.  Honey Ryder makes your nails look like a golden nugget.  I used 2 coats and no top coat.

Tiffany Case:

Tiffany Case DAZZLES!  It is a vibrant aqua blue base with silver glitter.  I only needed 2 coats for this mani.  Of the 6, this has the grittiest texture – but it’s not horrible.

Jinx:

Jinx is my FAVORITE  of the collection!  Jinx is a vibrant coral jelly base with sparkling gold glitter throughout.  I only needed 2 coats for this mani.

Vesper:

Vesper was probably my least favorite of the 6.  While I love the deep  purple of it, I wanted more sparkle after the other 5 I swatched.  It’s still pretty and I will still wear it though.  I needed 2 coats for this mani as well.

Overall, I like the collection!  I’m on the texture polish bandwagon and I truly love this set of Liquid Sands!  I completely understand that not everyone can deal with it and needs the smooth touch of a creme or jelly though.  All 6 had good application, only 2 coats were needed for each one, and I liked the variety of colors offered.  Unlike previous liquid sands – these weren’t as chunky as far as texture goes.

Bond Girls by OPI nail lacquers feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application. These six new shades will be available beginning May 2013 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Chatters, JCP Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.

Will you be snagging any of the Bond Girls Liquid Sands?

How close is tiffany case to the blueberry color from the new julie g gumdrops collection? They look remarkably similar!

I’m going to check that out this weekend! Just from memory – Tiffany Case is a tad brighter, but they are REALLY close! I’ll get a comparison shot asap :)

I love this collection! I think I will put myself on a polish embargo so I can justify buying all six ;)
I’m a huge Bond fan, loved the Skyfall collection and am also on the textured bandwagon along with you.

This cannot come out quick enough.

I haven’t been big into textured polish, mostly because I didn’t want to spend money but these look awesome!

It’s completely a preference thing! I really didn’t think I would like textures when they first came out but I fell in love!!
