OPI GoldenEye

Swatches & Review
Yesterday, I reviewed one of the two nail polishes I purchased from OPI's Skyfall Holiday Collection. The second nail polish from the collection I purchased was GoldenEye.
GoldenEye is a metallic gold with gold flakies. I did not think that it is glitter because while I was removing it, it was not gritty like glitter usually is, but it came off in flakes. It is loaded with gold flakes. It is very thin so more coats would be better. I only used two coats, but you can tell from my swatches that you can still see my nail line from the two coats.
From some angles, it kind of looks like there are some gold-ish-bronze flecks to it, but it is very minimal.

Normally, I am NOT a gold kind of girl. I do not like things that are gold, but this was amazing! When I saw this, I knew I had to have it, which was definitely a surprise! It is very shiny and it looks very flattering on my skin-tone. I think this shade would work with many skin-tones without making your fingers look like a off-shade. I love this color, but the removal sucks! Although it is not like glitter, I think it would be best to use the foil method so removing it would not be very messy. The gold flakes get everywhere on your fingers & they are so hard to remove. It just clings onto your skin so the foil method may be best. Although I am not originally a fan of golds, I think this is a good shade & is definitely a must have from the OPI Holiday collection! What do you think? Are you a fan of gold? Do you like the gold from the nail polish? Interested in any of the nail polishes in the Skyfall collection? :)
