Get your dirty minds out of the gutter. Miss Universe, and beauty pageants in general, is something that’s never quite taken off in the UK. Yes, we may laugh at the girls preaching to save the Earth and giggle and them attempting to walk in high heels and bikinis, but in other parts of the world these competitions are big business. (Especially as the prize is quite often scholarships… these ladies aint bimbos.) In celebration of the worldwide contest, worldwide nail brand OPI are launching their very own ‘Miss Universe’ inspired collection which features appropriate sparkles, bold colours and quirky names.
From left to right below we have ‘It’s MY Year,’ ‘Crown Me Already,’ ‘Congeniality Is My Middle Name’ (anyone thinking about Sandra Bullock right now?) and ‘Swimsuit… Nailed It!’. The three colours are metallic two-tone shades, complemented by an uber shimmery silver sparkle. These really are quite blingtastic, but they’re perfectly matched with the theme. It’s also great to see OPI going back to their bold routes after a couple of duller collections. OPI can officially be crowned champion.
RRP £10.50 each and available this September from all good OPI stockists.
