Brand New Amazingness from OPI: The Miss Universe Collection

Good news for any fellow OPI and glitter fanatics out there... The 'Miss Universe' Collection is upon us and it's quite simply beautiful! I must admit, being a self-proffessed glitter polish obsessive, I got a little bit overexcited when I clapped eyes on these...




There are four shades in the collection, all suitably bling for any wannabe 'Miss Universe':


1. It's My Year




My personal favourite from the collection, this pale mauve and gold shimmer is really quite a unique, yet wearable shade. It reminds me of a more glamorous version of OPI's subtle duo-chrome beauty 'Significant Other Colour'.




2. Congeniality is my Middle Name




A deep pink with lighter pink and lilac shimmer. Looks fabulous in the bottle but the shimmer doesn't translate onto the nail that well. Although it dries to a slight red tone, it's still a gorgeous shade, and great for the Summer-Autumn transition if you like your shimmer to be a little less OTT.




3. Swimsuit... Nailed It!




A stunning deep blue shimmer. Definitely the second best (or equal!) shade in the collection. This colour looks even better on the nails than in the bottle.




4. Crown Me Already


(Top: one coat, Bottom: two)


A clear polish with mixed silver glitter. A great (and cheaper!) dupe for Deborah Lipmann's 'Today Was a Fairytale', it works really well as an overcoat but you can also layer it up and wear it alone.




These are definitely going to be amongst my Autumn/Winter staple shades this year! Have any of you got your eyes in this super shimmery collection?


The Miss Universe Collection is available now, online at lenawhite.co.uk and at OPI stockists, £10.50 each.
