I first saw this amazing gold OPI polish ages ago online I’ve been anxiously awaiting it’s arrival here in New Zealand ever since. Now it’s here (well almost – it’s in the country and goes on sale early November).

This stunning polish is OPI’s limited edition Bond-Inspired 18K Gold Leaf Top Coat ($74) to celebrate James Bond’s Golden Anniversary. Aptly named, The Man with the Golden Gun, this luminous, rich top coat adds an additional layer of gold leaf over the top of completely dry nail lacquer or directly onto your bare nails.

Inspired by the world of 007, this real 18 karat gold top coat is just one of the highlights of the OPI Skyfall collection.

The rest of the Skyfall Collection features twelve limited-edition polishes.


My favourite is the Casino Royale which is a deep burgundy colour – it’s fab.

As always the names of each colour are a lot of fun too. Take a look: GoldenEye (all eyes will be on you when you wear this glorious gold), The Spy Who Loved Me (a red as romantic as the secret agent inside you), Die Another Day (live in the moment in this hot and lively red), Casino Royale (this high-rolling plum is fit for royalty), You Only Live Twice (this rich high-shimmer magenta is a once-in-a-lifetime find), Skyfall (get Bonded with this magnificent maroon), Moonraker (drive your fastest car to get this exhilarating metallic grey), Tomorrow Never Die (this eternally intense purple will live forever), The Living Daylight (this courageous multi-hued glitter sparkles 24/007), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (this misty-green pewter commands attention), Live & Let Die (burn the candles on both ends in this private jet black), The World is Not Enough (this rosy silver is as addictive as it is beautiful).

There are also four cool Skyfall Nail Apps ($28) too which are easy-to-apply, precut nail strips made from 100 percent nail lacquer.

OPI Skyfall is available early November (only a few days away now) at Farmers, Professional Salons, Life Pharmacies, Kirkcaldie & Stains Nail Spa, Smith & Caughey’s, Arthur Barnette,
Ballantynes, Selected Radius, Amcal and Unichem Pharmacies.
