After absolutely loving Swimsuit…Nailed It! I started to warm up to OPI’s Miss Universe collection. I was browsing the nail polish section at Beauty Brands the other day and saw Congeniality is my Middle Name. In the bottle it looked gorgeous, sadly it didn’t translate to the nail quite how I wanted it to.
Congeniality is my Middle Name is a red based purple with a ton of shimmer. The shimmer is slightly larger than microglitter which is what I thought would make this polish unique. Turns out, on the nail, the glitter looks like your normal microglitter. It also goes on the nail a bit more red than in the bottle.
The formula of this polish is a bit on the thin side. I used three coats and still had a slight visible nail line.
Overall I am not in love with this polish, though I am in like. That being said, when it comes down to it, I’d reach for China Glaze Stella over this polish when I’m looking for a red based purple.
