OPI Miss Universe Collection Swatches & Review

Today I have OPI's Miss Universe collection to share with you guys today. This collection consists of 3 gorgeous shimmers and one glitter. I can't get enough of glitters, once I see glitter it's a must have for me! Let's take a look at the swatches:

Swimsuit...Nailed It is a gorgeous vibrant blue shimmer. 2 coats. This color is absolutely phenomenal. It's so vibrant and blue.

It's My Year is a purple with golden shimmer. 2 coats. It's stunning. I love the golden shimmers that pops out of the purple. I thought it would be a dupe to Rally Pretty Pink but it's not, this one is more purple than pink. They're more like cousins.

Congeniality is My Middle Name is a fuchsia shimmer. 2 coats. This purple berry has a jelly like finish.

Crown Me Already is a clear base with small round glitters and larger hexagon glitters in silver. 3 coats. With 3 coats it is quite opaque. I feel like this one is a little too opaque to be a top coat. Let's take a look at the collection with one coat of Crown Me Already over them.

Crown Me Already over It's My Year

As you can see, even with one coat of Crown Me Already, it totally covers up the base color. So this one was best on it's own.

The formula for these were excellent as usual. I had no problems with application. They all applied smoothly. I do love all the colors in this collection, it's quite rare for me to like every single color in one collection. But my top most favorite happens to be It's My Year just because it's such a gorgeous purple.

Which ones are your favorite from this collection?

(These were sent to me for review)


  1. Crown Me Already needs to be in my collection now! It's even stunning on it's own.

  2. I love this collection. Swimsuit...Nailed It is my favorite. Did you have any staining problems with it?
