I haven’t watched the Miss Universe pageant in years, but there’s still a little part of me that remembers watching when I was a little girl and thinking how glamorous it was. (That was long before I knew how much work went into being that “glamorous!”) So of course I was eager to try out OPI’s new Miss Universe Collection. As collections go, it’s a small one, with only four shades, but sometimes I like the small ones even better because the bigger releases can get too overwhelming. Here are the four shades you’ll find in it:
- Congeniality is My Middle Name – a berry wine shimmer
- It’s MY Year – a champagne-rose
- Swimsuit….Nailed It! – a vibrant shimmery shiny blue
- Crown Me Already! – a silver sparkle
For me, there are two standouts in this collection. Crown Me Already! is just perfection. Calling it a silver sparkle doesn’t do it justice. It’s a silver base with chunks of bigger silver glitter in it so it’s super, super shiny and opaque. I love, love, love it. It’s definitely a head turner, so I might have to try it on both my fingers and toes at my next nail appointment because if you’re going to do it, you might as well go all out, right? I’m also slightly obsessed with It’s MY Year. It’s such an interesting gold shimmer with a rose tint to it. I’m finding it hard to describe, but it’s very, very pretty.
The collection is out in stores now, but I know that it’s selling out quickly (Crown Me Already! is especially hard to get ahold of) so if you want to grab them, you definitely shouldn’t wait. You can check them out online at www.opi.com.
