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.
