OPI It’s My Year (Miss Universe Collection) NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 25 - 2011

The OPI Miss Universe collection features four sparkling shades ranging from full-on glitterbomb (Crown Me Already) to a relatively more demure pink (Congeniality is my Middle Name).

From the collection, I’m wearing It’s My Year, an exquisite purple/gold shimmer (or is it a foil?) that stopped 3 people dead in their tracks today as they demanded to know what was on my nails!

It applies smoothly, if a little sheer thus needing 3 coats to reach opacity.  It gave me no application issues and simply SINGS when it catches the light.

I wish OPI would release a full collection of variations on this theme, that would make my year.

OPI Nail Polishes are priced at £10.50 each available from Lena White

    I bought this today at Ulta! And I got the glitterbomb “Crown Me Already!” which is awesome to layer over other colors. I wish they did a whole collection like “It’s My Year” also, but I always like how they have varying finishes/textures/whatever in every collection they do.

  16. I just discovered your blog today and this was the first post I saw. I just purchased two nail polishes online by China Glaze- For Audrey (a Tiffany Blue) and Over the Rainbow (a metallic/rainbow fine glitter white) so I *thought* I had filled my nail polish shopping quota, but NO I saw this post, loved the polish so much I had to go on and buy it right away! Love, love, love this color….and this blog now too! :)
