opi miss universe polish

I gave this polish four stars because I haven’t put it on yet. Hopefully it will look just as good on as it does in the bottle.

I have always loved OPI brand. One thing is this color wasn’t what I thought, I was looking for a deep red for the holidays, it’s weird, in my house it looks deep red, then when I go outside it’s this weird looking purple, other then the color, I love OPI, will continue to buy.. I did end up getting more of a crimson color for the holidays coming up and for fall.. I don’t like wearing dark colors, pain to get off the polish, so I only wear the dark in the holiday season. This polish did go on smooth and is shiny. 🙂

Gorgeous berry red with purple micro shimmer

This polish is absolutely beautiful in the bottle and on the nails. The stock photo is not even near a true representation. It is a deep, blue based red with purple microshimmer. There’s enough shimmer to give the red a purple hue (no chunky glitter and it is NOT tacky like another review said). This is definitely one of my new favorites and I would repurchase in a heart beat. Goes on easily, but is a little on the thin side just like China Glaze ruby pumps and can spill onto your cuticles if you put too much on the brush. Go easy and you must use a base coat with these red polishes and a top coat like Seche Vite will give it that pretty glossy look. I can’t stop looking at my nails!

Subtle Sparkle

This is a great pinkish red color that has just the right amount of sparkle. It is very complimentary to anyone. It covers amazingly well with only two coats and dries very quickly.

Beautiful color!!

I’ve had so many compliments already from this color, and I never realized it had purple undertones until I had my nails done. This is my new favorite color. I never expected I would like it so much. Like the previous reviewer described so well, it is a bright reddish pink with purple and sparkly undertones. I love it!

Gorgeous color, see the link in review for photos.

“Congeniality is my Middle Name” (deep magenta with almost purple shine, small sparkles): This color is absolutely beautiful. The best photographic representation that I have seen online is at where photos are taken in various levels of light. It has a very purple undertone that can only be seen in intense light, but I would not call this “magenta” more than a deep, deep red with magenta undertones. My friend grabbed this up the night I received it to have her toes painted this color at her next pedicure. I am not a “magenta” person but I tried it and loved it. The color is not too bright for a professional environment but can be fun fun fun as well! Again, this will stain the skin next to your nails; it is important to clean up while you manicure if your hand is not steady. The color will transfer off nails onto paper but a day-later application of topcoat should be sufficient to extend the life of the color at the tips of your nails.

Not The Color I Thought

After getting the polish the color was not what I expected and hoped for something better. However with shopping online and going off by an image is all you can do and hope for the best. Other colors I’ve ordered has left me lucky and I’ve been satisfied. Just wish this color would have been a 5 star 🙁

Beautiful color; bottle I got was a little old.

Bottle that was shipped to me shows signs of having sat on the shelf for a while. Also had leaked at some point. Love the color, though, and always love OPI products.
