I hope everyone is fine! Sadly, work is keeping me super busy these days. I always thought it would get less stressful after completing my PhD, but seems like it's not. So while my boyfriend is preparing dinner, I just want to quickly share with you my NOTD. I am currently rockin' Die Another Day from the OPI Skyfall 007 collection. I fell in love with this gorgeous orangey red the moment I saw swatches on Lucy's Stash.
Isn't this an awesome shade of red? The golden shimmer makes Die Another Day look like it is glowing from within <3 Even though this was released as part of a Fall collection, this color is so bright and eye-catching I'd definitely wear this during Spring/Summer.
The only complaint I have about this nail polish is wear. I used OPI Nail Envy as my base and RapiDry as a top coat. Already on the same day I have some visible tip wear. That is quite unusual for OPI polishes on me. My I Don't Give A Rotterdam! manicure lasted 5 days without any major chips, cracks or tipwear. Still that won't keep me from wearing this color over and over again this summer and maybe it will wear better when I use another base- or top coat.
How do you like Die Another Day? Do you prefer orange- or blue-toned reds? Blue-toned reds look more flattering on me, but most of the time I don't really care if a nail polish matches my skintone or not, as long as I love the color ;)
Thanks for reading, have a great day!
