What I bought from the OPI Skyfall holiday 2012 collection

Goldeneye: irregular gold microglitter/shimmer in a clear, deep golden-yellow base.  This is three coats.  Not super-flattering but I DON'T CARE.  It's gorgeous!  Picture taken under overcast skies.

Moonraker: Love the color, hate everything else about this polish.  It was brushstroke-y and the finish showed off every defect in application/topcoat/nail plate.  It also dried very quickly, so no over-stroking!  If you use it, buff your nails well or use an aqua base, slop it on and do whatever you can to avoid air bubbles in your topcoat! Pictures taken in partial sunlight.

Live And Let Die: Deep, blackened green base (as close as green can get to black) with green-gold speckle-sparkle.  Love, love, LOVE.  Could have been a one-coater with medium-to-heavy application!  Stains cuticles, though.  Picture taken in sunlight.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service: sheer deep teal-gray-blue base with lots and lots of irregular gold and blue shimmer.  This color is so pretty.  Average application; this is three thin coats.  Top picture is in sunlight, bottom in shade.

The World Is Not Enough: I'm in love with taupe-y shimmers atm.  This color is a pale, mushroom-y shimmer with pink and silver sparkle added for depth.  Love it, love it, LOVE IT--and it has nothing to do with Garbage, who performed the title song for this movie, being one of my favorite bands.  None at all.  (Don't look at me like that!) Top picture taken with flash, bottom under overcast skies.

Blogger is currently very hungry for my opinion; at least, this is what I assume since the site's been eating my comments for the least 8 weeks or so.  :-(  I'd like everyone here to know that 1) I do look at all of your posts and pictures; 2) I do try to comment on all of them but Blogger's got the munchies; and 3) I have tried to reply to comments on my posts but, again, no go.  I don't know how to fix the situation so, for the time being, I'll probably be doing a linked 'comment spam' on my blog or something similar.  I'm not a lurker, I promise!

Thanks for Reading!
