OPI Miss Universe Collection Swatches and Review

Good morning beauties! Despite my best efforts to sleep in, I just couldn't. I think I'm far too caffeinated to get a good nights rest so I thought it would be a great time to share a few swatches.

The OPI Miss Universe Collection is Limited Edition and it's available at retailers now.

Crown Me Already. The glitter bomb and my favorite from the collection. It has a clear base and it's packed with silver micro and large hex glitter. My camera just doesn't do this polish justice. The first picture is more color accurate.

2 coats

3 coats

Swimsuit...Nailed It! A gorgeous bright blue with fine micro-glitter that gives it a foil finish. This one is really stunning although I may have something similar in my stash already. Two coats are all that were needed.


Congeniality is My Middle Name. A beautiful wine creme with pink and purple shimmer. In direct light it flashes pink-purple and the shimmer is obvious. I used 3 coats.

In natural light it appears lighter and the shimmer is not as evident.


It's My Year. A purple base with golden microglitter. The finish is similar to Rally Pretty Pink but it's more of a purple foil finish. There's also a duochrome effect. In direct light it's more of a golden-purple. In the shade it's a darker prettier purple. This is my second favorite from the collection. I used 2 coats but could have gone with a third.

All of the polishes had a great formula and applied smoothly with little problems. Overall the set is a small yet cute tribute to pageant fans but they are worth owning even if pageants aren't your thing.

  1. I thought I wasn't going to be interested in this collection, but after seeing the swatches I really want the mini set! (hopefully they come out with a mini set with this collection) =)

    Thanks for the amazing swatches as always!
