This is the fourth Liquid Sand nail polish from the Bond Girls Collection from OPI.

It's also the last one from the mini-set that I will talk about. I already talked about Jinx, Pussy Galore, and Solitaire.
Here's a close-up of the back of the box.
Vesper was played by Eva Green in Casino Royale (2006). She's one hot lady!
Here's a closer look at the nail polish. The description on the box says "a mysterious and intriguing deep purple." The description definitely pinpoints the color!
This is not a great picture, but it's as dark as possible! It's a medium-size brush.
Here's how the nail polish looks on my hand. The first coat is more lighter in color and you can see the purple. If you look at the tops of my nails, that's the color you get with first coat. With second coat, it becomes deep purple. The first, second, and last from the left is with two coats of Vesper. The third from the left is with two coats of Vesper and Seche Vite Top Coat. I noticed if you apply top coat, all the liquid sands look like normal nail polishes. It loses it purpose of the texture concept.

Now for my overall opinion... Since I did a thorough review of Liquid Sands from the Mariah Carey's Collection, I will base this nail polish from that review. Just as those nail polishes, this is easy to apply. It goes on smoothly and there's no streaking. The only thing I noticed about this nail polish compared to the others is that you notice color separation. What I mean by that is that if certain parts of your nail received less color than another part, you can tell the difference. The more you get color in certain areas, the deeper the purple gets. I applied two coats on all my nails but certain parts especially the center, the color was deeper. I found this unique with this nail polish. I never noticed that with other Liquid Sands nail polishes. Once the nail polishes dry, you can feel the sandy texture. It becomes less sandy as days go on, but you can see the texture. This nail polish last a good 5 days before it started chipping. This is my personal opinion but out of all the Liquid Sands nail polishes including the Mariah Carey's Collection, this has to be my lease favorite. It makes a good winter color, but it was awful for this summer weather.

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