OPI Miss Universe Collection 2013

I’ve never been one to really be interested in pageants and such, but I give those women props because I do think it takes a lot to go through that whole process. It’s sad that what I tend to remember from pageants is the following:

Poor Miss South Carolina! Anyway, today I have the OPI Miss Universe Collection which is a lovely trio made up of 2 cremes (CREMES!!!!!!!) and one metallic polish. Let me show you the shades and let you know what I think of them.

OPI I'm Feeling Sashy 1OPI I'm Feeling Sashy 2Love, love, love!!! OPI I’m Feeling Sashy is a gorgeous plum/purple creme with a dusty quality to it that really gives it a unique look. It’s so creamy and glossy that I can barely contain my glee. I do really love this color, and it applied like a dream. I applied 2 coats for the swatches above.

OPI Miss You-niverse 1OPI Miss You-niverse 2OPI Miss You-niverse is one of those gorgeous dark fall colors that should be a staple. The formula on this one was pretty nice as well and it is almost a one coater. It’s so inky and shiny!

OPI This Gown Needs a Crown 1OPI This Gown Needs a Crown 2When I first saw OPI This Gown Needs A Crown, I groaned because I thought to myself: not another metallic! You don’t even know how much I hate metallics. Anyway, this is a very unique polish. It’s not really a metallic as it applies like a glitter but dries to a satin finish. It’s a strange polish at first but boy did it grow on me! The formula is a little thin so I used 3 thin coats for full coverage.

I’m really pleased with this fun little trio! What do you think? Are these colors you’re interested in? Thanks so much for the visit today!

 

MISS UNIVERSE nail lacquers each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application. This Gown Needs a Crown features a satin finish and should be worn without top coat for best results. These shades will be available October 2013, at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, jcp Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and ulta.com for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.

    I really like This Gown Needs A Crown – I’m a huge fan of silver glitter polishes that you can actually achieve full coverage with.

    Ooh I love them all! I wasn’t as keen on This Gown Needs A Crown, but I think I’d like to try it to see how the satiny finish is, as I don’t really have any like it! The colours of those cremes though…Just wow.

    Great swatches, I’ll be adding these to my wish list! 🙂

    So, funny/sad story from my childhood, or rather, tween years: when I was in 8th grade, somehow some of the girls got nominated to be in this pageant thing. I think it was for scholarship money or something. Anyway, I was all set to do it, with my red velvet with satin-off-the-shoulder detail gown and white pantsuit…I even remember wearing my favorite kilt (which I was also wearing during my first kiss that year, which was also a disaster, lol) to the interview. At I totally nailed THAT interview, lol. Anyway. We had to prepare an answer to basically a “what do you want to be when you grow up?” question. Well, at the time, I thought I would go into music. My parents didn’t find that to be an acceptable answer and told me I had to say I wanted to be a lawyer or something. I didn’t, and I refused to lie, so they refused to let me go. The pageant people were so upset that they offered to DELAY the pageant for me to be able go and my parents still wouldn’t let me. Given the way things turned out, that scholarship money would’ve been AWFULLY handy. On the other hand, at least I didn’t get sucked into the world of pageants.
    And with that story shared…I had the opportunity to see these in person, so you know my thoughts! At first I was like, “Meh,” but then once you swatched them, I was like, “Eh! Not meh! Actually, nice!” 🙂
