NOTD: OPI Jinx from Bond Girls collection

Hi my dears! Happy Friday! I can't believe it is Friday again... where did this week go? I know I'm saying always the same thing but this year the time seems to pass specially quickly. Don't you have the same feeling?
What I have for you today is my absolute favourite from all textured polishes I've seen around, OPI Jinx from the Bond Girls collection. Seriously, I'm not all that convinced about this "textured polish" trend, as I said many times. But this colour is so exceptional is the only one I REALLY like.

This were two effortless coats, without topcoat, of course. Drying time was normal, and faster than the other textured polish I own (here) which took forever to dry with a thick base coat. I used a very thin base coat this time, so I will have to check back with OPI What wizardry is this? with a thin base coat to see if it dries faster.

I'm in love with this colour! I really am. Can't stop looking at it. I'm planning on living it to see how it wears. So I'll only take it off once it chips. I'll keep you updated on this test.

If it wears at least for a week, I believe this one will be coming with me next holidays. We're planning to take a 2 week break this summer and go visit our relatives in Italy, of course going to the beach is in the program! I don't know if you've noticed how sandy beaches seem to be the worst enemy of glossy nail polish. I'll be for sure playing a lot with the sand and my baby, so I think Jinx will be a very good option for a long lasting "beach-proof" mani, lol. I've already noticed the "liquid sand" polishes last longer, have you had the same impression? So I don't have to think of many polishes and always changing my colour. I know some people get gel nails for holidays so they last, but I don't like gel nails.. and they're out of my budget also.

Please let me know your thoughts on this colour, and I'd appreciate your point of view on perfect long lasting nails for holidays!!
Love,
Nati

    1. Thanks Ann-Sofie! They're pretty colours, even if you don't like the sand finish, there's also a pale pink in the collection that I hesitated to pick, but ... I thought I had to be reasonable because my collection is getting huge!

    1. Mira andrea, la verdad yo tampoco entiendo porque par mí el esmalte debe ser brilloso. Pero si creo que el acabado mate es muy chic, pero tan delicado que no dura nada. Quizà han hecho esto para tener un acabado mate más resistente?

    2. Pues esa será la idea, yo tengo un esmalte negro matte y queda bonito.
      Pues tendría que ver el acabado de serca pareciera como arena.

  5. Ciao Nati! This color looks great on you! And the color itself is beautiful!
    I'm not a fan of liquid sand polishes but I'd love to see how this one looks with a top coat!
    Jinx is one of my favourite Bond girls - Halle Berry is so beautiful! Didn't she wear a bikini in this color in the Bond movie...? I think so. Hope all is well with you cara! Baci! xx

    1. Ciao Jezz! Thanks for your comment, you just gave me the idea to try top coat on one hand, so I could see how it wears.
      I agree Halle Berry is a beautiful woman!
      Bacioni, xxx

  8. This color looks great on you! Feel like the perfect color for vacation too. It will be interesting to hear about how the texture will withstand wear and tear. I've removed mine (not this color though) after three days and it seemed fine. I agree that it's a great option wearing something like this on the beach instead of really glossy polishes.

    1. Hi Gelic! Thanks for your comment, I'm today on the third day and I got some tip wear :(
      but truth is I worked a lot this weekend with my hands (I sand paper a chair to repaint! and build two ikea furnitures, and washed up a lot!) So I think I could have done a third thin coat to make it last more.

  9. This is not one of "my" colours, but I love textured nail polishes, it was a love at first sight for me! I have some of Kiko textured polishes and I adore them! :-)
