I have actually worn OPI Skyfall two days in a row but today I decided it was finally time to get out my nail art supplies – it’s been a while! I added some dots and made my second attempt at sugar spun which actually looks more like linear marbling on my nail but hey ho, I am liking it. Clutched in my hand is a maple syrup lolly sent to me by the lovely Ashley from Spellbound Nails – the perfect sugary treat for the fall. Thanks lovely!! OPI Skyfall was released as part of the James Bond themed collection in last years Autumn/Winter season. I have to admit this is not the first… or second… or even third colour that sprang to mind when thinking of ‘Skyfall’ but this dark blood red is a stunner. I used two coats for nice even coverage and whilst the colour isn’t especially unique… I clearly love it. To jazz this manicure up I used Barrym Gelly Lychee which is my one and only Gelly from the spring collection and it is just such a lovely creamy colour. I started off adding the dots with my biggest dotting tool and then with the left over polish on the paper I carefully stirred and prodded until it went stringy and created my sugar spun (slightly too much spin on my middle finger). Once it was dry I evened everything out with a coat of the beloved Color Club Top Coat.
I think there is something a bit vintage-y about this colour combo – what do you think? Last photos from the camera phone – I promise!! Time to go and decide what to put on my nails next. Before you ask… here are pictures of yesterday’s Skyfall mani featuring Queen of Hearts which is a stunning and densely packed red micro-glitter polish with flecks of gold from UK Indie Dragonglass Nails. I scooped up a couple of mini polishes from Georgia’s store and I can’t wait to share them with you in full glory – so consider this a sneak peek! Don’t forget that October is UK Indie month and we have a massive giveaway going on – just over a week left to go if you want to be in with a chance of winning.
