OPI The Living Daylights nail polish from the new OPI James Bond 007 Skyfall collection is the prettiest glitter nail polish I’ve seen so far. The subtle muted colors of the glitter particles add sophistication to this polish and make it a must-have for any nail polish lover. Plus, there’s another advantage to this nail polish – it’s perfect for nail art and can be worn in a few different ways. Today we’re showing you two ways you can wear it.
1. Pure glitter. 2 coats of this nail polish is enough to transform your nails into shiny disco balls. But not those from the 70’s – these are from 2012 and would be a perfect manicure for a night out or a cocktail party. Make sure you seal your glitter with a generous layer of high shine top coat. We used Nails Inc Kensington Caviar.
2. “Jelly sandwich” manicure. This is so called because to achieve this effect you need to seal a layer of glitter between two layers of semi-opaque or sheer nail polish. Here we used one coat of OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy as a base, then one coat of The Living Daylights and sealed with another coat of the Coney Island.
For less obvious particles, apply two coats of sheer nude nail polish on top. Sealed between two layers of nude polish, the glitter isn’t that obvious and looks similar to the famous Nails Inc Sprinkles. More importantly, this way the glitter becomes suitable to wear during the day or even to the office.
Voilà, one polish – two ways! Which way do you prefer?
