O: On Her Majesty's Secret Service, OPI vs Winter Wonder, Sinful Colors

It's Wednesday!  Like I need to remind you.

For the letter "O" I swatched OPI's On Her Majesty's Secret Service, from the 007 collection.  This is the only polish I bought from the set. OHMSS is a nice blue, grey, metallic foil with multicolored shimmer/micro glitter. Formula's a bit thin, but not problematic at all. Below is three coats.


I include the picture below because in the top two finger you can really see the small glitters sparkle.


A couple of weeks after I bought OHMSS, I found Winter Wonder from Sinful Colors, they are dead on dupes.


Below is one coat of each polish.


AND a bottle shot, for those of you who like to look at bottles, such as me!


Neither of these polishes are in stores anymore, but they are online. Online the prices are all over the place, but when they are in stores, OPI is $8 and SC is $2 here in the states.


Meet my cat, Demi. I woke her from a nap with the camera. She's my buddy. In the last couple of years has become quite attached to me and likes to sit with me while I paint my nails.

So that is it for today!

  2. Demi is so cute! I actually have seen a few bottles of the OPI at one of the Ulta stores I've been to in the past couple of weeks, so they might still be out there if you look hard enough. I didn't notice that it was a dupe for the SC though...I have that one, I'll have to give it a chance to shine!

    1. That is good to know that it is still available. I feel bad sometimes posting a hard to find polish. Thanks Natalie!

  3. I've seen SC do a lot of dupes of lots of really gorgeous high end polishes! This one is so pretty <3

  5. Wow, those are exact dupes! Not in the price though. What about the formulas?
    And hello Demi! My cats stay at a distance when I paint my nails, they hate the smell!

  7. Hahaha!! I also like looking at the bottles! It just helps to get an idea of how the polish is IRL.
    OHMSS is so pretty, but I love to find dupes at a cheaper Price so thanks for the comparison, they're so much alike!

  8. Wow I had no idea Sinful had a dupe of this OPI shade, they are spot on dupes for sure. I love OHMSS, one of my faves from the Skyfall collex. I was amazed when I first saw it in the bottle, so pretty & unusual.

  10. Great looking mani and good comparison. It's always good to know about cheaper options. Too late for me though since I already own the OPI one LOL

    1. Yeah, If I did not blog I would not have picked up Winter Wonder. Luckily it's only $2.

  12. This is pretty similar to Zoya- FeiFei too, although I think FeiFei is a little less grey? Great comparison, and your cat looks so smug! :)

  13. I really like the sparkle in it! Very pretty!

  14. Great comparison! I did one with Zoya Fei Fei and Winter WOnder awhile back and those were pretty much dead on as well. Cool thing is that I love the color and shimmer in those so much that it's great to have different options. I may have to grab OHMSC because I love it so much.

  15. Another Sinful shade that I've never seen here. :(
    Anyway I have On her Majesty's Secret Service and it's amazing, seriously. IMHO Skyfall had been one of the best collection of the last year. :)
