OPI The World Is Not Enough

One of the polishes from the James Bond Skyfall mini set, OPI The World Is Not Enough is a brown-leaning taupe that reminded me instantly of smoky topaz or quartz. There's also a surprising twist of very fine fuchsia and light green glitter. It seemed a bit sheer even with three coats when I first swatched it on a nail stick, so I chose to layer it over Revlon Colorstay in Stormy Night. The photo above shows the ring finger with three coats of The World Is Not Enough, and two coats layered on top of one coat Stormy Night on the other fingers. On the nail, I felt like the three coats of The World Is Not Enough is just barely opaque enough and I could have gone without a base colour though. You can see that the base of Stormy Night made it look much deeper and grayer, but I think the darker base helps the glitter stand out more.

I've photographed The World Is Not Enough on the nail stick because most of my nail swatch photos for this polish just did not turn out well. (I'm still getting used to my new camera and figuring out which areas of my house have the best lighting; at least I've discovered a not-so-great area to avoid in the future.)

There's a foil-y quality to this polish that reminds me of the Orly Foil FX Collection I love, but unlike the Orly foils its sheerness makes it a bad pick for nail stamping. The super fine glitter is really difficult to capture on camera, but it makes the polish so much more interesting and unique. I really can't think of a polish like it.
