OPI Miss Universe collection: Swatches & Review

OPI came out with four nail polishes in anticipation of the MISS UNIVERSE® pageant that is being held tomorrow September 12 in Brazil. I can't think of a better pairing than these two brands, they're both all about showcasing beauty ;)

Congeniality is my Middle Name is a dark berry shimmer with microglitter (that really translates as straight shimmer) in purple and magenta. This is darker indoors, but outside in the sun it really glimmers. Two coats.

Swimsuit...Nailed It! is an electric blue foil. I wasn't sold on it at first but I have come to love it! I'm rocking it as my current pedicure :) I don't have anything quite like this, which is nice. Two coats.

It's My Year is a sister of OPI's Rally Pretty Pink. This gal is more purple toned than the mauvey RPP. Purple and gold together make a beautiful pairing, one of my favorite combinations, so of course I dig this polish. This is three coats.

Crown Me Already is one bling-tastic polish. It's a combination of tiny silver glitter pieces and larger silver hexagonal pieces. It's a densely packed polish so it's totally easy to build up to opacity. This is three coats. I assume this would be lovely layered as well. (The green at the bottom of the bottle is just a reflection of some shrubbery.)

Be sure to tune in to your local broadcast of Miss Universe if you can! I'm definitely gonna watch this year, I love the interview portion! I hope you enjoyed these swatches!
