Nail of the Day: Congeniality Is My Middle Name

When I first bought the OPI┬áCongeniality Is My Middle Name polish, taken from the Miss Universe 2011 Collection, I was so excited to try it out – it was described and shown as a gorgeous pink glitter shade, which sounds perfect for me!

Unfortunately , somewhere in transit it must have gone off a little…the classic ‘old nail polish’ thing happened whereby it separates out into a darker shade with only a trace of the proper colour left…

Can you see what I mean? The red at the top isn’t meant to be there – the actual shade is the pretty pink patch near the bottom. Very annoying!

Well, after my lovely boyfriend spent about 10 minutes shaking the bottle for me, it looked a little better and I quickly painted my nails with the shade:

I’m still not quite sure what I think of this shade…it’s so much more red than pink, which is probably due to it being old. I should have sent it back, but never got round to it!

What do you think of the shade?

Stay Creative,

    It looks like a shade lighter than “let me entertain you”

    The pink shade at the bottom of the bottle would look better I guess. The glitter looks good though, really smooth ­čÖé

    I would’ve returned it. I would use that pink nail polish you got with Swimsuit Nailed It.
