It’s finally mine! I own The Man with the Golden Gun! As soon as I saw this promo shot of The Man with the Golden Gun I knew it had to be mine.
The Man with The Golden Gun is a limited edition release from OPI’s Skyfall collection. I have to admit…the hefty price tag of $30 did have me on the fence for a while and my bank account was grateful that my ULTA didn’t seem to have it in stock whenever I went by. But it seems fate meant for me to have it, I stopped into ULTA to pick up a few gifts several weeks ago and there was one box left.
The polish is gorgeous and I wore it over Ski Teal we Drop for a week with plenty of compliments along the way. The 18k yellow gold flakes are stunning. I used two coats for this look. It did take some careful application to get the placement just right.
Alternatives: If you can’t find The Man with the Golden Gun, you can try ZOYA’s Gilty Pleasures for $35 (or a trio for $45), Sephora by OPI It’s Real for $30 (currently on sale for $15!), or ROCOCO’s Gold Leaf Lacquer which retails for $48. If those price tags are to steep, try picking up some gold leaf at a craft store and follow Alli’s DIY tutorial. What sold me on OPI over the ZOYA and Sephora by OPI version was the bottle, I love it.
Can’t wait to hear what you think!
