OPI It's my year

When I ordered my first OPI polishes, I did a lot of research to see which polishes I wanted. They just have so many nice colors, I didn't just want to choose randomly. I looked at so many swatches of so many different polishes, My head felt like it was going to explode and finally I gave up and I just picked a few that I liked and clicked order. Today, I have one of those polishes to show you.

OPI It's my year is a purple polish with a crap ton of golden shimmer. The shimmer is so strong, it's actually the dominant color in this polish when applied to my nails. This polish was part of the 2011 Miss Universe collection, but I think it has been added tot the permanent collection since then, because it's still widely available.

The formula is nice, but a bit on the sheer side. You can get it opaque in 2 coats, but I prefer doing 3 thin coats with this polish. It dries fast and shiny, so no complaints about that.


In the shade
I do like this polish, but I like the purple base color more than the golden shimmer and unfortunately, that overpowers the purple. Gold is not a color that suits my skintone very well, I would have prefered to see a lot more of that gorgeous purple coming out. It's still nice and definitely an unique polish in my collection, but just a little too golden for me.

I did try to capture both the gold and purple colors in my pictures, but that dang shimmer is just to strong for the purple base... Oh well...

What's your first OPI polish?



  1. I like this colour, for some reason it reminds me of Christmas, although I can't exactly say why. Maybe it's the gold shimmer. I don't own any OPI polishes so I've never tried them!

    1. It is stunning, just not really me... OPI is a great brand, one of my favorites!

  2. This is nice and it does not look bad on you at all but just knowing you this short amount of time I can see why it is not your favorite. :) My first OPI is a blue called Into the Night.

    1. I agree, it doesn't look bad, but it's just not my color.
      I love into the night, such a nice deep blue.
