It's Bond, James Bond, And The OPI Skyfall Collection

This week I stumbled across the OPI Skyfall Collection that is in collaboration with the new Bond, James Bond, movie. I triple dog dare you to try and say 007's name without the iconic pauses within his complete name. You can't do it, can you? I can't either. It's Bond, James Bond. It will always be Bond, James Bond. It's impossible to not say it that way.  And try it without an English accent.  Quadruple dog dare ya!!

I don't have pictures to show you yet but what I do have is the offical press release and hi-res images that I am ready to share right now. So read, let's read, and see what we discover.  And might I remind you that EVEN the Her Majesty, the Queen falls for Bond, James Bond!


OPI Marks 50 Years of Bond 007 with Holiday Lacquers Inspired by Skyfall




This holiday season, OPI celebrates the 50th Anniversary of a fellow world icon – James Bond – appearing in Skyfall. Starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem, this highly-anticipated twenty-third installment opens in theaters nationwide on November 9, 2012.

Inspired by the film’s blend of glamour and danger, OPI launches Skyfall Collection, featuring twelve limited-edition nail lacquers for Holiday 2012. “OPI is thrilled to work with EON Productions to celebrate 50 years of the style, swagger and mystique associated with Bond 007,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “From metallic and glitter finishes to jewel tones and even a jet black, these lacquers capture the film’s sophisticated and glamorous look."

“Watch for Bérénice Marlohe wearing two Skyfall Collection shades in the film,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With Skyfall, a rich maroon, painted on top of the nail and GoldenEye, a shimmering gold, painted on the undersides, Marlohe’s luxurious manicure will be the one to try this holiday season.”

(Here comes Polarbelle for a moment>>>> I have to tell you I can't wait to see what they do with GoldenEye. It is the most unusual gold I have ever seen. It's truly eye catching. Ok, back to PR....) 

The Skyfall Collection features six shades that play off the movie’s seductive theme, and another six that offer a more dangerous look, including:



GoldenEye
All eyes will be upon 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

Tomorrow Never Dies

The Living Daylights

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
