James Bond, 'Twilight,' the Muppets and more movie and TV-inspired nail polish collections
Thanks to nail polish brand OPI, moviegoers can get a 007-inspired manicure before taking in the nail biting action in the latest Bond flick. The limited-edition Skyfall collection includes OPI’s first-ever 18-karat gold-leaf top coat — appropriately named “The Man With the Golden Gun” — which retails for $30, and 12 additional lacquers priced at $8.50 each. New Bond Girl Berenice Marlohe actually wears the burgundy “Skyfall” and the glittery “Golden Eye” colors in Skyfall, which hits theaters November 9.
