Congeniality Is My Middle Name is from the 2011 OPI Miss Universe collection. The only polish I absolutely loved from that collection was Swimsuit…Nailed It! It’s still one of my favorite flashy blue polishes.
So why am I doing a post on Congeniality Is My Middle Name? Well, I was doing a bit of a nail polish purge not too long ago and I was on the fence about this polish. I remember not loving it but I couldn’t really remember why. I decided it warranted one more chance to make the cut.
Congeniality Is My Middle Name is a red based purple packed with red and purple microglitter. I like the idea of this polish. I even like it in the bottle. But on the nail it’s just kind of meh.
The formula is on the thin side; I used three coats and I still had a few bald spots.
I think I would love this polish if it was a bit more purple. I much prefer China Glaze Stella or even OPI Merry Merry to this. That being said, Congeniality Is My Middle Name pack some serious sparkle.
Congeniality Is My Middle Name is still available on Amazon if this polish if up your alley.
There are swatches under the jump. Including a photo that I took in the sun. That sparkle, y’all.
