OPI Miss Universe Preview and Thoughts

Let's check out this collection preview from OPI, and then I have some thoughts about it for ya!

"OPI Launches Limited Edition
Miss Universe Lacquers

Pageant-pretty nail lacquers in the new Miss Universe by OPI promotion give fingers and toes added glitz and glamour. Featuring four shades packed with shimmer and sparkle, these limited edition colors capture the energy of the 2011 MISS UNIVERSE® competition, to be held September 12, 2011, in São Paulo, Brazil.

“Miss Universe is the most popular and publicized beauty pageant in the world,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “We are excited to partner with the Miss Universe Organization, whose contestants provided so much inspiration for rich, high-fashion color.”

With shades ranging from berry and golden pink to electric blue and glittery silver, Miss Universe by OPI provides high-shine lacquers, including:

Congeniality is My Middle Name- And berry-wine shimmer is what I do best!

It’s MY Year- It’s about time for this champagne-rose to shine!

Swimsuit…Nailed It!- An itsy bitsy teenie weenie vibrant shiny-blue bikini.

Crown Me Already!- A sassy silver sparkle that knows what it’s worth.

The Miss Universe Organization named OPI its official nail care sponsor this June. Additionally, Weiss-Fischmann will be a judge for the 2011 Miss USA® pageant, a precursor to the Miss Universe competition. "

OK My Thoughts:
1. I don't watch any of these pageants. I basically disagree with their existence. I think having females judged on their appearance in a swimsuit in this day and age is ridiculous.
2. Some of these colors look awfully familiar.

Now, you know I have really been loving OPI lately. The Pirates collection and Silver Shatter= amazing. The Blue Shatters= Full of Win. Nice Stems!= Super Pretty. Serena Williams England= Basically Made For Me. And of course, I am SUPER OFF THE WALL EXCITED for the upcoming Touring America and Muppets collections. But this Miss Universe situation is kinda lame.

Now, I may change my mind upon actually trying the polishes. Especially because Swimsuit... Nailed It! looks pretty awesome and so does Crown Me Already! Maybe I'll just change their names in my head and pretend they are from another collection. I'm curious, what are your thoughts on the OPI Miss Universe collection?

I agree, the colors look familiar, but these "promo pics" never end up looking like the real thing either..LOL. I'll be crossing my fingers :)

That is true about the promo pics. I definitely don't think they will be dupes, they are just surprisingly similar to some recent releases.
