OPI Miss Universe Collection

OPI Miss Universe Collection

Crown Me Already

Crown Me Already is pure glitter.  It is a clear base with a variety of sizes of gold and silver glitter.  It was a little difficult to apply because of the chunky glitter, but glitter addicts will love it.

Mystery Solved!  A lot of wonderful readers tweeted saying their Crown Me Already polishes were all silver, no gold, but that they preferred it with the gold.  I got my bottle out and looked at it in a few different lights, and then tried it on a piece of white paper, and it was totally silver.  So where did the gold come from?  That is when I remembered that I swatched Crown Me Already over OPI Pros and Bronze (I'll have pictures of it up on Monday).  Mystery solved!  And I agree with others - it does look better layered with gold!

It's My Year

Gorgeous plum loaded with golden glitter.  Check out how my nails look gold from some angles and plum from others.  Isn't that cool?  I really like how interesting this polish is.

Congeniality is My Middle Name

Like the polish above, this is a really unique shade.  It is a medium bright red filled with purple shimmer.  So pretty!

Swimsuit... Nailed It

A very pretty royal blue with lots and lots of microshimmer.  I took the picture above with flash just to show you how crazy shimmery this polish is (the photo below is in natural light).

For all of the nail swatches, I used two coats.  OPI's Miss Universe Collection is available at retailers now.  Learn more at

Have you picked up any of these shades yet?  Which ones do you like?

I did not get the silver glitter topper or the blue swimsuit shade in this collection - I was silver glittered out and have more blues when I wear as I am not HUGE like many of you are on blue polish. It's my year has bits of Faye from Zoya to it, as well as Rally Pink from OPI Grand Slam France. When I saw It's my year on and that duochrome to gold, I was king of sad I bought it because it was so much too soon like others I had recently bought.
