When I first picked up the OPI Skyfall 007 mini set this was probably the polish I was most excited about. Yet, I tried GoldenEye, Live and Let Die and The World is Not Enough before this one! Go figure.
The Spy Who Loved Me is a shimmery red almost jelly with distinct orange undertones. The color is really quite gorgeous.
Because this polish has a jelly feel to it I did use three coats in my swatches. Otherwise, the formula is great. I have no complaints!
Safe to say, after I did this manicure I was quite happy. I loved the color and the way it turned out. I went on with my usual life. I went grocery shopping and then to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra. I didn’t do dishes or even make a meal! Throughout the day my nails began to chip. Badly. 36 hours after application they looked like this. Awful, right?
I used my normal base and top coat and prepped my nails as usual. I have no idea why it wore so poorly. Unfortunately, I haven’t given this polish another whirl. I want to but it’s never a convenient time to wear a polish you think is going to end in disaster!
If you have this polish please let me know if you had any wear issues. I’ve had a few people tell me they have similar problems which makes me sad because this polish is gorgeous.
