OPI's New Miss Universe Colors, Plus Nail Polish That Smells Like a Cocktail
Nothing like ending the week with a new OPI collection and a cocktail.
OPI was just named the official nail care sponsor of the Miss Universe pageant. To celebrate, the company wants you to find your inner beauty queen with its latest line of polishes, the Miss Universe collection. It’s a four color collection and includes: Congeniality is my Middle Name (berry-wine shimmer), It’s MY Year (champagne rose), Swimsuit...Nailed It! (shiny blue), and Crown Me Already! (silver sparkle). As befits a pageant, none of these are subtle, and they all have a heavy dose of shimmer. They’re available at the beginning of August and go for $8.50 each.
If you’re like us, it’s been a really long week and you probably need a cocktail. We can’t think of anything better than combining a drink with a manicure.
OPI is one of the more prolific nail polish companies, and it hasn’t disappointed us this spring, offering three new collections. OPI continues its collaborations with Serena Williams and adds a tie-in with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. OPI is also expanding its super-popular Shatter collection and offering a lot more colors.

This collaboration makes a whole lotta sense. Nicki Minaj loves anything shiny and colorful and OPI loves collabs with shiny and colorful people (see Katy Perry, the Kardashians, the Muppets).
According to word on the nail polish blogs, this collection should hit your nails in January 2012. Don't expect a collection full of tasteful neutrals, either. There are two full-on glitters, one metallic and one with confetti glitter. There's also a purple Shatter and a perfect neon green that we actually love. Click through to see the whole collection. Nicki better bring it with the nail art in the next few months.
Nothing gets us more excited than new nail colors. Luckily, nail companies are keeping us on our colorfully painted toes with frequent fresh offerings. Now that the weather is changing, we’re ready to trade our beloved Essie “Merino Cool” for some new shades.

It's been a few weeks since we've heard from OPI, but finally...more new summer colors! Embracing the floral theme that other cosmetics companies (like MAC) have gone for this summer, they've released a series of pink lacquers. Serena Williams' third Glam Slam collection in honor of Wimbledon is also poised to launch. And finally, Nicole by OPI introduces Shatter-like texture topcoats.
