For all you beauty buffs that double as undercover James Bond fans, we’ve got some fashion news that will make you giddy. If you’re as in love with the movie series as we are, you probably know that the franchise is getting ready to celebrate 50 years in the business. Alongside the release of Daniel Craig’s latest stint as the dreamy spy, OPI is giving you double the reason to swoon: the luxury nail polish brand is releasing a special edition bottle that goes for gold.
The new nail lacquer called “The Man with the Golden Gun” will be a top coat containing real 18 karat gold leaf that will come in a special, limited edition collectable bottle and Bond-themed packaging. Due to its special luxe ingredients, this polish is to be used sparingly as a top coat — applying in over another shade as a final layer will add an amazing fleck of gold to your manicure.
The lacquer is set to be released in correlation with the newest Bond movie, Skyfall, which will hit theatres in October. “For 50 years Bond beauties have graced the big screen with their dazzling looks and opulent style, and gold has always played a prominent role,” said OPI’s executive VP and artistic director in a press release. Though the shade seems to never go out of style, gold manicures have been prominent on fall runways this season, revealing that OPI’s newest addition isn’t only timeless, it’s also right on trend.
The limited edition polish will sell for $38. Though it’s a little pricier than standard OPI bottles, the fact that there’s real gold flakes in the polish leaves no room for complaining. Better yet, with an October release date, this product would be great to put on your wish list for the holidays, or to give as a gift to a special girlfriend.
Aside from “The Man with the Golden Gun,” OPI lines up 12 more 007-inspired nail lacquers to base or accentuate the golden coat. Colors range from rich berry and plum shades to multi-hued glitter. –justluxe.com + photos courtesy of OPI, additional photos courtesy of 007.com and pamperwithpolish.blogspot.com
