~ OPI Jinx ~

My sweetest boyfriend gave me the beautiful OPI Jinx for my birthday (I turned 20 yesterday!). We both can't stop staring at it. You have probably already seen a zillion pictures of the OPI bond girls collection... and you probably also read that Jinx looks 'way better in real life' and that everybody just loves it, well, it just won't stop and I hope you haven't had enough of this polish yet, because here are my pictures and opinion of Jinx. Jinx's base seems to be pink/coral, white the shimmer is orange and gold. This combination makes Jinx a lovely, sparkly, bright, coral stunner. I applied two coats. All pictures were taken outside in natural light unless stated otherwise! :)



Jinx really DOES look way better in real life. It's hard to catch Jinx's sparkle on camera. She seems way more 'flat' in pictures than in real life.



I think the liquid sand finish suits this polish very well. I actually think it would look less pretty if it would have a regular finish.

I took these last two pictures under really bright, white, artificial light and I like the way the sparkle looks in it!

I tried making a little video to show you how stunning Jinx is but to capture it's true beauty, you have to wear it yourselfThe first part of the video has a HDR filter, the second part doesn't. 


The final thing I want to say is that Jinx is probably one of the prettiest, most interesting nail polishes that I own! 

Do you own any of the Bond girls shades? And don't you just love Jinx?

  1. Beetje te laat: maar alsnog gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag! Wat een supergaaf cadeau heb je gekregen zeg!
    Ik heb zelf alleen Honey Ryder van deze collectie. Ik vind Jinx ook prachtig maar ben zo bang dat mijn nagels en vingers helemaal rood uitslaan als ik deze lak er af moet halen.

    1. Hmmm... tja dat is altijd lastig met rood hè? Ik denk dat als je je watje er lang genoeg op laat liggen en dan alleen richting de top van je nagel beweegt het wel moet lukken. Honey Ryder lijkt mij heel erg mooi, echt een goudklompjes effect! Bedankt voor de felicitatie :)

    1. You have no idea! There was the tiniest bit of sunlight today, so I saw it in it's most sparkling mode for the first time.

  5. I don't think that would look good on me at all(orange/corals are tricky on me) But it looks STUNNING on you!

    1. Thank you! Jinx is not too orange though so maybe it would just look great on you as well :)
