Solitaire, natural light

"This diamond-sparkling white is totally engaging."

Solitaire is a soft pearly white with embedded silver sparkle and glitter. This shade applied evenly and was good to go with just one coat. Two coats gives you more sparkle. Two coats of Solitaire applied for the photos above.

With a top coat the sand becomes smooth and individual specks of silver glitter become more prominent.

Pussy Galore, natural light
"This light feminine pink has the purrrfect amount of shimmer."

Pussy Galore is a light pearly pink with darker pink micro-shimmer. This color is very feminine and would be great for everyday. The soft finish gives the hands a very polished and clean look. Two coats of Pussy Galore applied for the photos above.

With a top coat the white and pink micro-shimmer is more reflective and gives a softer finish.

Honey Ryder, natural light
"Take a ryde on the wild side in this shimmery gold."

Honey Ryder is a light antiqued gold base with lots of gold sparkle. This color is so stunning in person. I was worried that it was going to come off as a really obnoxious yellow toned gold. Thankfully it's toned down enough to suit many skin tones. The polish applied evenly and smooth. Two coats of Honey Ryder applied for the photos above.

With a top coat the bumpy texture underneath creates a 3D like effect and the glitter becomes more shiny on the nails.

Tiffany Case, natural light
"A classic light blue worth investigating."

Tiffany Case is a aqua blue base with small silver glitter and silver micro shimmer. This polish is gorgeous in person, the light reflects the glitter incredibly well. This is my favorite color from the collection. Really reminds me of crystal clear tropical water that glistens in the sun. Two coats of Tiffany Case used for the photos above.

Tiffany Case with OPI Top Coat, natural light

With a top coat the silver glitter becomes more visible in the aqua blue base. With or without a top coat this color is beautiful.

Jinx, natural light
"This mesmerizing matte coral has lucky sparkle."

Jinx is a coral red with gold shimmer. The gold shimmer and red together creates this burning ember illusion. The color applied evenly and opaque. Two coats of Jinx used for the photos above.

With a top coat the golden shimmer specks stand out more than the coral base. The top coat also gives the manicure a smooth and glossy finish.

Vesper, natural light
"A mysterious and intriguing deep purple."

Vesper is a aubergine purple jelly base with black glitter. I was looking forward to this color the most but I was least impressed by it. I think the jelly base is what I dislike about it. I think if OPI had chosen a shimmery purple base it would compliment the black glitter more. The overall color is pretty but that sheer jelly base near my cuticle gives it an odd appearance. Three coats of Vesper applied for the photos above.

With a top coat the purple base becomes really uneven and patchy. The black glitter makes it look even darker. If I were to wear Vesper again it would be without the top coat.

OPI Bond Girls

Overall, I really enjoyed seeing an all Liquid Sand polish collection from OPI. I think there was a great mix of colors to choose from though I would like to see OPI do some fun bright purples, oranges, yellows, and green. The whole Bond Girl theme was appropriate based on their success with the Skyfall 007 Holiday collection. My favorite colors from the collection were Tiffany Case, Jinx, and Solitaire. If you're not interested in picking up the full collection then there's a Bond Girl Liquid Sand Mini Set that includes four 3.75 mL/1/8 Fl. Oz. bottles of polish in: Jinx, Vesper, Pussy Galore, and Solitaire. The mini set retails for $17.00 CAD.
