Review: OPI It’s My Year Nail Polish

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.

OPI It's My Year Nail Polish Bottle

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.

OPI It's My Year Nail Polish Name

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!

Stay Creative,

    Have you considered looking at China Glaze? I love OPI but it is expensive. China Glaze is a bit cheaper but its by far better than other nail polishes I’ve tried. I’m not sure if it’s made by the same company as OPI but I love it as an alternative!

        I like Crystal Ball, Joy, and quite a few from the Rodeo Diva collection. Though right now in my obsession with purple I have been wearing Harmony a lot. I’ll be getting more here soon so maybe I’ll have a new favorite to tell you lol

    Hi chyaz, may I ask how you feel about the chanel range of polished??? 🙂 I almost bought one of the colours from the le jeans range, but the price stopped me. I love the colour and heard great stuff about anti-chipping, but just wondering if you’ve tried it? 🙂
