Happy Meowlloween, kittens!
I hope you enjoyed reading about my Top Ten as much as I enjoyed writing about them! Now, back to business.
I’ve got another color from the OPI Skyfall James Bond Collection to share with you: GoldenEye*.
GoldenEye is a bright, flashy yellow gold. I would say it’s less like 14k warm, classic gold and more like every kid’s favorite Hanukkah candy, gelt.
Not soft gold…
The base of GoldenEye is a rosy yellow-orange. The glitter is unusual; to me this seems like more of a really dense flakie. The gold flakes appear irregular.
Here’s one coat. Can you see the flakiness?
Second coat; the color builds nicely.
Of course, I wanted Glittero MAXIMO so I did three coats.
This color is not for the faint of heart. It’s on the loud side for sure. It doesn’t just say, “Look at me!” — it screams it. So be prepared for a lot of attention if you end up sporting GoldenEye.

GoldenEye is so intense, a lot of people asked me if I was wearing Minx. (Also, this image is a PSA to remind you all to moisturize, for the love of GAH, because this is what happens when you don’t!)
Not even dreary office lighting can dull GoldenEye’s lux beauty.
GoldenEye was the perfect color to go with my Halloween costume because I needed something over-the-top and shiny. And definitely something GOLD. Why you ask? Because I was going to be a hamburger. Yes, a hamburger.
Yandy.com was heavily featured on sites like Yahoo! and Jezebel for selling some of the most ridiculous “sexy” costumes yet. Included on the list of “Top Ten Worst ‘Sexy’ Costumes of 2012″ was this… thing. “Sexy Burger.”
“Sexy” indeed. The back of the costume leaves little to the imagination. And the idea of a burger being sexy is just absurd. And yet, as I stared in disbelief at this picture, a genius idea began to form. I was going to turn this Sexy Burger into a…
Yes! A GlamBurger! I bought some neon green tulle to serve as my “Lettuce Wrap,” added some much needed American Cheese to the neckline and created some ginormous cheeseburgers for my… buns.
Gold leggings complete the GlamBurger ensemble.
Now those are some buns, eh? My friend told me I “took the sexy right outta that burger.” ;_;
Oh, yeah. Nothin’ sexier than a burger! Here’s a closer shot of them buns. Wait a sec… Who invited The Hamburglar to this shindig? Ahhhh!!!
What did you guys dress up as for Halloween? And of course I want to know, did your nails play a starring role in your costume?
