OPI Live and Let Die

Happy Friday, you guys! :-)

Today, we're wrapping up OPI's Skyfall Collection with Live and Let Die, a dark olive green polish with tons of sparkly gold shimmers.






This green is so dark that it can appear almost black in certain lighting. I was pleasantly surprised that even though the base is so dark, the gold shimmers are able to shine through clearly and distinctively. The formula is smooth and pigmented. It is almost opaque in just one coat, though I did two for the swatches to even everything out.

Now that I have tried all the colors in this collection, I have to say that this is my favorite OPI collection to date! I feel every color is a win, and the James Bond theme is just so cool. My favorites from the collection are Die Another Day, GoldenEye, Moonraker, and The World Is Not Enough, but if I had to pick just one, it would absolutely be GoldenEye. :)

Let me know what you think of this collection in the comments below. What are the hits and misses for you, and which ones will be making it onto your buy list?

You can find Live and Let Die at your local nail salons and beauty stores for $8.50 for 0.5 fl oz.

  3. I don't think that any of this collection will make it to my buy list. I considered "On her Majesty's Secret Service", but on second (or third or even fourth) thought, I think I'll give that a miss as well.

  7. That makes me feel better that this is your favorite one! It's the only one I got from this collection at the moment and wasn't thrilled. I was hoping for a dark teal with gold glitter but the glitter didn't show up on the nail too much for me. And it just looked like black polish. Looks great on you though! Been enjoying your reviews of this collection (and your swatches in general). You sold me on Unfor-greta-bly Blue from the Germany collection ;) Your swatches are awesome! :)

  8. So glad we are on the same page with GoldenEye ;) Definitely my pick of the collection as well! I really love Live and Let Die, but I could only limit myself to 2 (OPI polishes cost $19.95 each here! Eeek!) so I bought GoldenEye and On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The deep, almost black green and the shimmer of Live and Let Die are so pretty and unique though!

  11. This polish looks very similar to a little bottle of no-name ELF polish I picked up at Target in September. It, too is a really dark green shimmer that looks almost black. I would be curious to know if they are similar. I wish it had a name so you could google swatches. This is a really pretty color.
