My Favorite OPI’s ~ Polish of the Month

Posted on: July 29, 2013

Sometime this spring it dawned on me that each OPI collection looks pretty much like the last OPI collection. Take the Holland collection released by OPI in the Spring of 2012. The Holland collection contained a dark, dark purple, a blue, a pink, a green, a glitter, a red, a brown with gold shimmer and a dusty pink. The Germany collection was released in the Summer of 2012. The Germany and Holland collection were so similar that I only bought 1 from the Germany collection because I already had the blue, a green, a pink, a dusty rose from the Holland collection.
When OPI came out with the Skyfall Collection for Fall 2012 I was happy to see something different from OPI. I bought Casino Royale first and then added more and more colors until now I have 7 from the Skyfall Collection and they are not like any other colors in my collection.


Casino Royale and Skyfall. I wasn’t going to buy Skyfall because I really love Casino Royale and they are similar but Skyfall was on sale for $2.12. It would have been criminal not to purchase! Ha!

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and The World is Not Enough. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is my favorite of these. It might even be my favorite of them all! The World is Not Enough is a pretty rosy gold sparkle-y polish, which I also like. A lot.

Live and Let Die and Goldeneye. Live and Let die is also one of my favorites. I bought Goldeneye because Holly likes it so much, I thought I would try it. I haven’t worn it, yet. And this was also on sale so naturally I had to buy it!

Moonraker is one of my very favorites from the Skyfall Collection from OPI . It can be a bit tricky to work with the formula but if you just do thin coats and be patient the result is amazing. It reminds me of Revlon Smoldering. I love that polish, but more often than not, I end up taking it off and wearing something else because I get frustrated with it. But back to Moonraker, it is a pretty metallic light grey color that changes with the light. I love an interesting color like Moonraker, don’t you?

This is the last post for My Favorite OPI’s,, I haven’t decided yet what will be the Polish of the Month for August. What brand would you like to see? Let me know by leaving me a comment below.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
