Nail Alert: OPI The Man With the Golden Gun

Have you seen the new topcoat by OPI? To celebrate James Bond's golden anniversary, OPI has released a special top coat that contains 18 carat gold leaf! Talk about feeling high class!

It also comes in a limited edition gold bottle and its a bit pricey as compared to the regular polish (about USD30)  but what did you expect? it's gold on your nails!

This ATAS top coat is meant to be painted over a base colour and appears as golden flakes with a super shiny finish to your manicure.
I think it gives off a rather nice robin egg look, instead of the usual shatter (which can come off a little over powering). 

I would love to get my hands on one! But I would feel absolutely guilty about changing my nails once a week! Can you imagine just throwing gold away like that? I wouldn't be able to sleep at night! 

Next on my to do list........FIND A DUPE! How hard can it be? We have silver flakes readily in the market, someone will make a gold foil flake look alike...right?

In the meantime, the rest of the James Bond collection is quite standard and nothing really screams BUY ME (i think).

From right to left  1st row- The Spy Who Loved Me, Casino Royale, You only Live Twice, Die Another Day, Skyfall, Golden Eye
2nd Row - The World Is Not Enough, Moonraker, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Living Daylights, Live and Let Die, Tomorrow Never Dies
