OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Hi, you guys! I've got another gorgeous color from OPI's Skyfall Collection to show you today. On Her Majesty's Secret Service has a steel blue base filled with tons of sparkling multi-colored shimmers.






The micro-glitters sparkle in a variety of colors when the light hits it; I see predominantly gold, pink, green, and blue. Compared with The World Is Not Enough, its taupe-y counterpart, this polish is more pigmented and its micro-glitters are denser, so you only need two coats. Dry time is just a smidgeon slower than average for OPIs. 

One random thing about this polish is that it has a slightly stinky smell, kind of like a skunk. I'm not sure why it smells like this, since none of the other OPIs in the collection do. It's not strong or anything, but definitely noticeable if you give it a wiff.

In terms of similar colors, I thought this looked quite close to Zoya FeiFei, so I dug that out for a quick comparison. They look a little different in the bottles (probably due to their different bottle shapes), but once on the nails, I could not tell a difference at all. So if you have one, you probably don't need the other.

You can find On Her Majesty's Secret Service at your local nail salons and beauty stores for $8.50 for 0.5 fl oz.

  6. FeiFei is one of my recent favourites, so it's no surprise that I love this one too! Very strange that this one smells funny though...I have a bottle of a Sally Hansen that has the same kind of smell! Strange.

  14. Isn't it weird how some polishes have a random strange odor that isn't really a polish smell? I have a few like that but what bothers me most is when they smell like that after they dry! Ugh. Pretty color, though. I think I would probably choose Fei Fei instead. :)
