OPI Bond Girls Liquid Sand 2013 Collection Swatch and Review PLUS Giveaway!

 Samples provided for review and giveaway
Hello lovelies!!
If you follow my Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you may have seen that I had the distinct pleasure to be invited to an OPI Blogger Breakfast on March 20 where I met the one and only Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. I promise to write more about that experience in a future post. **UPDATE here is that post ** But right now, I'm just excited to show you the OPI Bond Girl Liquid Sand Collection. This is another partnering with EON productions to celebrate 50 years of Bond. I'm loving that this one is inspired by the iconic "women who have captured Bond's attention over the last 5 decades." In my opinion each and every one of these is a hit and a perfect match to the character! As excited as I am to show you these, I'm even more excited to tell you that Suzi handed me two extra full sets and I decided to use them for giveaways FOR YOU! AWESOME! You'll find the rafflecopter at the end of the post to enter. 
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.
For more information, please call 800-341-9999 or visit www.opi.com. Follow OPI on Twitter @OPI_PRODUCTS and become a Facebook fan!

Now for the photos :) *Warning* Picture heavy post*

 A note about formula and application so I don't have to keep repeating it. The formula on all of these is excellent and easy to work with. All swatches are with no base or top coat and are 2 coats (except the dark purple Vesper in the stripes - those are 3 coats). Removal is remarkably easy! Texture ads dimension to the nail but is not at all rough and won't snag clothing.
 OPI Pussy Galore. WOW. This one was a fave for me before I even tried and I was right. A super pretty feminine pink that sparkles and shimmers!! Always hard to capture that in still photography but it's there!




 OPI Solitaire. Another clear favorite for me. I love a white nail, and white with sparkle? Sign me up! Again, hard to see the sparkle in the photos, but it's stunning.








 OPI Honey Ryder is fantastic gold gold gold with bling. Love it!! It's going to get monotonous hearing me praise these..but I love every one of 'em!



 OPI Tiffany Case is a beautiful light blue. You can see in the photos it has some bits of slightly larger glitter adding even more interest to the look. This one is super sparkly!






 OPI Vesper my personal favorite Bond girl, a deep dark purple with black glitter bits. This one does not have the same bright sparkle as the others, and honestly, I didn't think I'd like it..but once it was on it was also a wow polish! I'd love to see it on shorter nails as well!



 OPI Jinx is my surprise favorite! I have never been a big peach or coral gal..but this shade is just amazing!! It is the most intensely sparkly, with a color that seems to morph before your eyes shifting from orange, coral and pink. And those golden sparkles!! My husband even said it was perfect for me, like a bed of pave colored diamonds. Yeah...OPI don't stop!! I hope this texture trend sticks around for a long time!


AND HERE IS WHAT YOU WIN:

The giveaway is open internationally except where prohibited by law.  I have two full sets to giveaway so there will be TWO WINNERS! 
Good luck!! <3 Victoria

  33. I love so many of these shades! I find the colors more my speed than some of the other brand's textured polish color options. This might get pricey. I even like that shade of blue and a lot of blues I don't care for.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. So pretty! It's kind of reminiscent of Zoya's Pixie Dust Collection(a HUGE lemming of mine) and your nail art is gorgeous. Simply can't decide which is my favourite out of all of them!

    Thanks for the giveaway, keeping my fingers crossed! ^^
