OPI is just knocking it out of the park this year! And thank heaven for their mini sets, I've purchased each of the three released this year, so far. Hot on the shelves right now is the Bond Girls Liquid Sand collection, and as far as I'm concerned, there isn't a dud in the bunch. This makes this mini set a sure shot and a great option if you're not looking to invest a bunch of money in this year's textured finish trend.
First up is Jinx, named for Halle Berry's character in Die Another Day.
Jinx is a perfectly balanced pinky-orange coral packed with gold and orange shimmers. It reminds me of a glassfleck finish, if you were to take away the smoothness factor (and, it leaves shimmer all over your fingers during removal, just like a glassfleck). Formula and application are both second to none-- Jinx is opaque in the standard two coats and applying this in a perfect half moon is ridiculously easy. I don't do any brush cleanup around my cutes anyway, but my manis seldom turn out this neat.
I admit I haven't been very excited about wearing these textured polishes on my own nails, but this collection is just full of gorgeous. The fact that these are named after iconic Bond girls gives the collection some special energy and makes the colors particularly fun to wear.
Thanks for reading, and have an amazing day!! ♥♥
