OPI Miss Universe Collection

Today is the day of the Miss Universe pageant, held in Brazil. I may not believe in beauty pageants, but I do believe this is the prettiest OPI collection of 2011!

OPI  It's My Year

OPI It's My Year is flat out STUNNING!  It is a puple jelly based packed with gold foil.  A sister to OPI Rally Pink, but much, much prettier!

OPI  Crown Me Already (over It's My Year)

OPI Crown Me Already is a silver hex glitter packed with tiny silver glitter.  Unlike some glitter polishes, I had no trouble getting this out of the bottle.  This is one coat over It's My Year.

OPI Swimsuit... Nailed It!

OPI Swimsuit... Nailed It! is a gorgeous bright blue polish.  It is a blue jelly base packed with blue glitter.  I loved it so much I wore it for three days.  But be warned, it stained my nails.

OPI Congeniality is my Middle Name

OPI Miss Congeniality is the hardest to capture in a picture.  It is a berry wine base with magenta sparkles.  It was easy to control, as long as you don't put too much on your brush.  While similar to a few OPI's of the past, it is actually unique (see comparison's here).

Overall Miss Universe is a stunning collection.  I prefer the smaller OPI collections, and this is the first time since the OPI Shrek Collection that I have liked each and every color.  Sometimes polishes only look good as part of a collection, but these four stand on their own.

These polishes were kindly lent to me by OPI before I had to send them on to their rightful owner.  You better believe I will hunt them down for myself!

OPI polishes retail for $8.50 each.  I have seen this collection at ULTA!  You can also find the OPI 2011 Miss Universe collection 4pc set Full size on Amazon.
