SWATCH REVIEW: OPI BOND GIRLS LIQUID SAND COLLECTION

The OPI Bond Girls Liquid Sand collection popped up so quickly! Maybe we were out of the loop, but we did not know about this collection till the very last minute. We really loved the What Wizardy is this? Liquid Sand polish in the Oz collection & we were super excited to try out a full collection with the Liquid Sand formula! OPI’s Liquid Sand nail lacquers have a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle. Perfect for the flashy Bond Girls!

“OPI is extremely excited to partner again with EON Productions,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI co-founder & Artistic Director. “Following the success of the holiday promotion with the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, it’s been a thrill to create colors for the women who’ve captured Bond’s attention over the last five decades. The six shades are named after some of the most iconic – and my favorite – Bond girls, including: Solitaire, Pussy Galore, Tiffany Case, Vesper, Honey Ryder and Jinx,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “Worn without top coat, these Liquid Sand lacquers give nails a pebbled, matte finish worthy of the captivating ‘Bond Girls’ name.”

Every polish in the Bond Girls Liquid Sand collection had the same formula consistency. We barely needed 2 coats for full coverage in the pictures below (medium/darker shades = one-coaters!). The OPI Bond Girls Liquid Sand swatch pictures below are without topcoat, as they were meant to be worn to keep the matte/textured finish.

Solitaire – This polish is a diamond-sparkling white with silver glitters. Upon first glance we weren’t sure how we’d feel about this colour. Once we swatched it, we really liked it – like an updated classic all-white manicure.BG19BG20BG18

Pussy Galore – This shade is super girly! The polish is a light/soft pink with subtle silver sparkle. We aren’t huge baby pink girls, but this shade would be perfect for a little cousin or pink lover!BG13BG15BG12

Tiffany Case – A frosted blue? We were totally skeptical…We can’t believe how much we liked this classic light blue polish with silver glitters. NOT an ‘us’ shade at all, but it dried so amazing! This polish manages to be bright but still stay soft on the eye.BG10BG11BG9

Vesper – This polish shade is a deep purple with black glitters. The base of this polish was a little on the jelly side, which is visible towards the cuticle. We are naturally drawn to dark shades but we felt like this one fell a little flat to wear on it’s own.BG4BG5BG3

Honey Ryder – Our favourite of the collection! Totally over the top, tons of sparkle. You don’t even need to wear any jewelry! This polish is an amazing shade of shimmery gold. A must-have for every #nailpolishaddictBG14BG16BG17

Jinx – The stand-out bright of the collection, this polish is a mesmerizing coral with sparkle. It was refreshing to see a bright in the mix of the other more neutral shades. This polish screams vacation!BG7BG8BG6

We wanted to do something fun with the shades & see how versatile they were as far as nail art. So we did a quick tutorial! We started with Honey Ryder as a base and used the sponge-ombre method with the deep purple Vesper. This created such a luxe ombre effect! We wore this nail art design to a restaurant over the weekend and the subtle sparkle & high contrast was so eye-catching, we got quite a few compliments! We were totally surprised how easy it was to work with this texture formula. The sponge ombre worked so well, the grittiness help hold the darker shade at the tips.BG2BG1
