Last month OPI celebrated 50 years of James Bond with the Bond Girls Collection.

The thing I love about this collection is that all the nail polishes are Liquid Sands. You can check out my thorough review, as well as, swatches of the first four of Liquid Sands from the Mariah Carey's Collection.
Here's the back of the mini-set that I bought from the Bond Girls Collection. I already reviewed Jinx from this collection. For my second nail polish from this collection, it will be Pussy Galore.
It's played by Honor Blackman in Goldfinger (1964).
Here's a closer look at the nail polish. To be honest, I have no clue why this color is named after Pussy Galore the character. If anyone knows why, can you tell me? Anyways from the description of the box, Pussy Galore is "this light feminine pink has the purrrfect amount of shimmer."
It's a medium-size brush and it has a lot of frostiness.
The first, second, and the last from the left is 2 coats of Pussy Galore and no top coat. The ring finger, third from the left, is 2 coats with Seche Vite Top Coat. Pussy Galore without the top coat is frosty pink with pink  sparkles. The pink sparkles are not that noticeable in the picture but you will notice it in person. Pussy Galore with the top coat washes out the pink sparkles. I'm not too sure why but with the top coat, it just looks like a regular pink nail polish. Personally, I recommend using the Liquid Sands without the top coat. It's prettier that way!
I tried to take a closer picture of the nail polish to show the pink sparkles. This is the best one I can find. It's not that noticeable, but you will notice in person. Please excuse my dry cuticles. :X

Now for my overall opinion... You can read my thorough review of Liquid Sands from the original collection, Mariah Carey. I will base my opinion on this nail polish from that review. This is really easy to apply. I have to say one of the easiest nail polishes to use. There's no streaking and it goes on smoothly. Just be careful not to apply too much. If you apply more than you need, it takes longer to dry. If you apply the normal amount, it will dry quickly. Again, I have to say this nail polish dries the fastest I have ever seen. You will see it with your naked eyes. Right after it dries, it feels like sand or sand paper. As each day, the nails become more smoother and less like sand. The texture with your naked eyes does not change. It will have that sandy look until you remove it. This nail polish compared to the others chipped a little faster. I'm not too sure but I think the frostiness of the nail polish might make a difference. I'm wearing another frosty Liquid Sands at the moment and it's chipping faster as well. Maybe I found something. Pussy Galore lasted 4 days before it started chipping.

Would repurchase: Yes for Liquid Sands and no for this color.

The colour is really nice! I really want to try the liquid sand polishes, but they're pretty expensive here. >_<

You definitely should try Liquid Sands. How expensive is it there?

That's expensive. :/ No wonder you don't want to get them.
