Launched last month just in advance of the Miss Universe competition, this very limited edition trio of shades includes the dusky purple I’m Feeling Sashy, the vampy blackened plum Miss You-niverse, and the textured matte platinum This Gown Needs a Crown with a satin finish. The three shades were inspired by the women of Miss Universe, embodying glamour and the ultimate prize of the coveted crown. Highly wearable and gorgeous, this mini-collection is… dare I say it? Perfection.

Judge for yourself!

I’m Feeling Sashy is a medium-toned dusty purple creme. The formula was amazing. And the shine!! Here are two coats in sunlight (pre-top coat!):

in the shade it looks more like a dusty lilac:

Miss You-niverse is a blackened plum creme, and it is very dark – right up my alley! I love how vampy this shade is, but it has enough colour to not look black in daylight. This was an even nicer formula than I’m Feeling Sashy – definitely a one-coater if you’re quick, but I applied two coats. And no staining upon removal! Again, the pictures are pre-top coat in sunlight:

OPI_MU_MissYou-niverseSeriously, how gorgeous is that?? (I’ve already worn it twice!)

I love it with a French tip of This Gown Needs a Crown:

Lastly, This Gown Needs a Crown is a textured matte platinum that is not quite as textured as the OPI Liquid Sands. It’s actually quite smooth to the touch so if you are not a fan of textured polishes, this is a great option for you! And I absolutely LOVE this polish! The colour, the finish, the sparkle…  It’s easily one of the nicest silvers I’ve ever used. And it provides great opacity at two coats. OPI recommends wearing it without top coat to maintain its finish, so here are two coats on their own:

OPI_MU_ThisGownHow cute is the crown charm on this polish bottle?

And a macro shot to show you the holographic sparkle:

So…? Do you agree – are they not perfection? Which one is your favourite, and do you have any of these yet?
