Die Another Day is another polish my daughter gave me from the Skyfall O.P.I. collection. While red is not something I usually wear because of my pale skin, this shade is so pretty and the metallic sheen is phenomenal!
I think polish formulation has improved drastically over the last few years because I just feel it is going on smoother, drying more quickly, and lasting longer than ever before. I can't stop looking at my beautiful nails with this shade on - especially under the halogen lights in my kitchen - they just sparkle and the finish looks like glass!
I have considered buying the Sally Hansen Gel Nails at-home system but I decided against it for 2 reasons: the first is that to remove the gel polish you need to soak your fingers in acetone for 15 minutes (way too much time and nasty chemicals for me) and also, because I know I would get really bored wearing one colour for up to 3 weeks. While it may be convenient to have great, chip-free nails for weeks when you're busy, I know my nail phase only lasts so long and changing the polish is half the fun for me. Besides, with the awesome No Chips Ahead I am pretty happy with the length of time my manicures are lasting!
This Skyfall collection came just at the right time for me - I loved the movie, my nails are doing well, and I adore all the metallic shades! And I just realized that this colour is almost a perfect match with my Horizon!!!
