OPI The Spy Who Loved Me - swatches and review

As it's beginning to feel like x-mas now, even though I work 24/7 ;), I want to show you a gorgeous red polish with excellent qualities! You have probably seen it about a million times by now, but I'll show it anyway because I think it's a great x-mas polish! Just look at this Santa catcher! ;)

GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Shimmer.

Colour: A bright red leaning to orange (but it's not orange, it's red ;)) and packed with gold shimmer.

Collection: OPI Skyfall Holiday 2012.

Opacity: Good! This is two coats. In some lighting you can still see some VNL so perhaps you need a third coat if you are fussy with VNL ;)

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Very good! Perfect texture and very easy to work with.

Brush: Good! Nice and thick, but possibly a bit too soft...

Shine: Very shiny on its own but I have one coat of Seche Vite in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate... A bit darker red IRL and not so much orange as most pictures show. The best pictures are the daylight and full hand picture. The shimmer is more visible IRL as well!

Grade: 4/5 :)

This is a lovely bright red polish with excellent qualities! It has a twist too with all that gold shimmer! If you are a red polish lover you need this in your collection! ;)

Do you think this is a x-massy polish...?
Will you wear it for x-mas...? ;)
