OPI The Man with the Golden Gun - swatches and review

I got this amazing 18 K gold flake polish as a birthday gift from my dear friend Goldie! :D I feel so lucky to own it!! :D The bottle is so beautiful that I can't bear to put it in a drawer... So I have it on a shelf were I can admire it every day! :)
In these pics I wear it over H&M's Spending Cash with Carl which I wore the other day. I think the effect is stunning! To me it looks like a clear sky at night when you can see all the stars! :D
All pics but one have one coat of The Man with the Golden Gun.
Ok, time for picture spam!! :D

GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Flakes.

Colour: A clear base filled with real 18 K gold  flakes! :D

Collection: OPI Skyfall Holiday 2012.

Opacity: Not really applicable. This is a top coat. Could possible get opaque with many coats, but what a waste!

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Good! Maybe a bit thick, but still easy to work with. If you are a perfectionist, like me ;) you have to help the flakes a bit to distribute them evenly on the nails ;) But they don't come out in a big lump either!

Brush: Excellent! Very thick and very easy to apply with. :D

Shine: Very shiny on its own! This is a top coat so you don't need another top coat on top of this! ;) Leaves your nails smooth too. You don't feel the flakes at all, i.e no rough sufaces on the nails.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Accurate. What you see is what you get! It's really sparkly and shiny  IRL! ;)

Grade: 5/5 :D

You just have to love this effect polish! Real 18 K gold! I feel like a million dollars wearing it! ;)

What do you think of this polish?
Is one coat enough or should you wear two coats?
Have you tried any of the other gold flake polishes?

    1. Yes, almost! ;)
      There is a polish with real diamonds in it actually! It looks like a black holo but the holo is real diamonds!!! It costs like 160 000 dollars or something :/ I'll probably not get a copy of that ;)
