This year OPI is keeping the Miss Universe® Collection small but royal by featuring two shades of purple - I'm Feeling Sashy, Miss You-niverse - and a foil silver - This Gown Needs a Crown - in a new formula!
I'm Feeling Sashy is a vintage dusky purple cream. Color-wise this is my favorite shade of the three in this collection. Below I used two coats for the photo but wish now that I'd went for a third.
Miss You-niverse is a deep blackened plum cream. This painted on thickly, but easily. It was the perfect amount of polish to coat the nail but not get away from you. I used two coats below, but really only one was needed for full opacity.
This Gown Needs a Crown boasts a different sort of finish, a satin finish. For the satin finish it basically dries to a matte and is to be worn without a top coat. It's a little grainy feeling but still gives off a major silvery foil shine. Two coats were used below. Oh, and a cutesy little crown is featured on each bottle ;)
For more information on this collection, please see the Official Press Release.
