I am a fan of the old Bond movies and Shawn Connery being my favorite James Bond. However, I recalled little of the Bond Girls so I had to do Googling.
Vesper Lynd, played by Eva Green in Casino Royale is one of the most influential Bond girls to date. Played with intelligence and style, the French actress is only one of two Bond girls who James Bond actually falls in love with. (excerpt from whatculture.com to read more)
Vesper described by OPI: A mysterious and intriguing deep purple.
Vesper is a dark purple base with black sand and glitter. The first coat is very watery and it looks like dust stuck on washed out purple nails, yuck! Then, the second coat went on and the color turns in to what you see here. I wasn’t sure if I was going to get this one but I thought, I should keep the set as a whole. I am glad I did because it is a good alternative to black.
Ursula Andress, in her infamous role as Honey Rider in Dr No. Her notorious walk out of the sea in her iconic white bikini remains one of the most popular scenes in cinema and is regarded as the most classic James Bond moment to date.
As she was the first Bond girl, she became a classic pin-up girl, ruling the imagination of men around the world. Her seductive and beautiful character in the first ever bond, makes her a true screen goddess and a deserved no.1 in the all-time top Bond girls. (except from whatculture.com read more)
Honey Ryder described by OPI: Take a ryde on the wild side in this shimmery gold.
Honey Rider is a beautiful honey gold and the formula is great. I used two coats for a solid gold coverage. I would even wear it alone in one layer as a look of gold ‘frosted’ nails. I want to do a comparison post on Zoya Godiva vs. OPI Honey Rider. although, no dupe in any means, I would love to see them side by side.
The dried time for both Vesper and Honey Rider are fast. I was able to handle every task within half hour.
Honey Rider was so opaque that I attempted a little nail art. Not the best design but who knew a novelty polish can work so well as a nail art color.
