As you can see, my love of OPI is still in the pure obsession phase…and I was so excited for my most recent BeautyBay order to arrive, as it contained the gorgeous OPI Nail Polish in It’s My Year, taken from the Miss Universe Collection 2011.
When I saw this nail polish online, I immediately fell in love with it – I’m a sucker for glitter as it is, but when the polish is multi-toned, iridescent and glittery, I’m powerless to stop myself from buying it! The polish is a dark lilac with gold shimmer running all the way through it.
I also loved the name – each new year, my resolution is to ‘make this year even better than the last’, so this little motto is something that’s in my head a lot!
I painted my nails with one coat of the polish and was a little disappointed – it looked a bit ropey, and I knew I’d definitely need another coat. Once it dried (super quickly!) and I applied my second coat, my disappointment turned to joy – it was gorgeous!
HOW amazing is this nail polish?! I’m such a fan, and one of my housemates has already borrowed it! It did cost £10.50, which I know is very expensive (I need to curb my habit!) but for something this unique I’m happy that I bought it.
I love that OPI polishes don’t chip easily; so many do, and it just reinforces the fact that they’re an amazing brand. I would wholeheartedly recommend this polish to anyone – it’s fabulous!
