OPI Bond Girls Swatches & Review

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone had a chance to enter the giveaway!! It’s so huge, even I can’t believe it!! I wish I could enter myself (like seriously..I do.) I’ve had some growing pains with the new site launch – but I’m slowing working through issues. I did the whole site on my own (and I'm NOT an expert!) so I expected some hiccups. Thanks for being patient. :)

So today I have the Summer Liquid Sand Collection release from OPI, Bond Girls. Each shade has a matte, textured, sparkly finish and is named after an iconic Bond Girl. These polishes were all surprisingly easy to apply...minimum clean-up! All swatches are two coats (without topcoat - as directed) unless stated otherwise.

I'll start with my favorite, Tiffany Case, a light blue with a silver sparkle. This polish was high-definition! It's hard to describe; but the color and glitter were so sharp!! The finish was very similar to Jesse's Girl JulieG Blueberry Fizz...but more teal.

Next up is Jinx. This is a bright orange-coral-red. Very pretty. Especially with the gold shimmer! If you love orange polish, this is a must-have for summer.

Solitaire is a shimmery/frosty white. I'm not a big fan of white polish on its own. But Solitaire's sparkle is baby pink. It's very unique and my pic doesn't do it justice.

Vesper was my least favorite of the collection; but still a cool polish. It's a deep purple and required three coats. Keep in mind is that Vesper doesn't achieve it's PEAK sparkliness until it's completely dry. I liked it better well AFTER I'd taken the swatch shots.

Pussy Galore is a soft pink with fuchsia sparkles. I love light pink so this was a winner for me. If you don't like the understated look - but are forced into it by circumstances, Pussy Galore is a good "undercover" choice.

And last, but definitely not least, is Honey Ryder, a shimmery medium gold. It's really multi-dimensional - like a metallic + shimmer + glitter. A really neat effect!

So what do you think? Do you want this textured trend to hang around for awhile.
