So I am kinda excited for the new James Bond movie coming out soon featuring Daniel Craig.  And Ms. Adele is singing the title song!

So OPI is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise with a limited edition holiday collection coming out in October called the Skyfall collection.

From PR,

This holiday season, OPI celebrates the 50th Anniversary of a fellow world icon – James Bond – appearing in Skyfall. Starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem, this highly-anticipated twenty-third installment opens in theaters nationwide on November 9, 2012. 

Inspired by the film’s blend of glamour and danger, OPI launches Skyfall Collection, featuring twelve limited-edition nail lacquers for Holiday 2012. “OPI is thrilled to work with EON Productions to celebrate 50 years of the style, swagger and mystique associated with Bond 007,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “From metallic and glitter finishes to jewel tones and even a jet black, these lacquers capture the film’s sophisticated and glamorous look.

“Watch for Bérénice Marlohe wearing two Skyfall Collection shades in the film,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With Skyfall, a rich maroon, painted on top of the nail and GoldenEye, a shimmering gold, painted on the undersides, Marlohe’s luxurious manicure will be the one to try this holiday season.”

There are 12 colours in this collection and there is mix of textures and colours very popular at this time and for the upcoming holiday/fete Noel season!

The collection:

GoldenEye – All eyes will be upon you when you wear this glorious gold.

The Spy Who Loved Me – A red as romantic as the secret agent inside you.

FOTD: Inspired by Adele

Hey!!

So I have wanted to do a look inspired by Adele for a long time now.  Adele is an amazing chanteuse! I love her voice, her look, her style, vibes, everything!   Her albums are full of true, true tabanca songs.  She’s just stunning to me!

Adele’s signature style seems to be modern 60’s makeup.  The focus is always the eyes, winged out liner, full, flirty lashes and the rest of the face is understated. Nude lips, matte foundation, cheek contouring and not a lot of shimmer.  She also follows this up with full, sexy, voluminous hair and spiked nails.  I love it all! It matches her personality and curvy figure well and I hope she does not succumb to societal pressures.

Anyway, I saw the October 2011 cover of Vogue UK and had to a look based on it.
