Swatchity-Swatch: OPI It's My Year

Hello gentle readers.

I hope that your New Year is off to a fine start and that you are all having a great day. Say... How's it going with those resolutions? I learned years ago not to make them. When I do, I inevitably set myself up for epic failure so I just don't go there, anymore. :D

Today, I have a pretty, pretty polish to share with you. This is OPI It's My Year from their Summer Miss Universe Collection. This lovely purple jelly polish is shot clear through with gold glass fleck shimmer. This stuff is rich, shiny, shifty and just full of gorgeous. I applied three coats and topped it with top coat.

This photograph was taken out in the sun.



The formula is awesome. Smooth and jelly and lovely to apply. This just flows off of that fabulous brush, sits right down where it is placed and doesn't run or pool or smear. I didn't wear this long enough to see how fast it dries, tho it was dry to the gentle touch, by the time I oiled my cuticles and fired off these photographs.

This polish reminds me of Orly Oui. Hmmm... Perhaps a comparison is in order? If anyone would like to see that, let me know and I will get to it.

I must run along, now. Thank you so much for popping in. Have a terrific day and may your polish never bubble.

  1. I looooove this one. I'd love to see a comparison with Oui! So far I've been making some progress on my resolutions (find a job--I've been applying everywhere!) and exercising (looking into zumba class dates/times)

    This is such a pretty color!!  It reminds me a lot of Zoya Faye, too.  Either way, it's pretty, so who cares, right?  LOL

  5. It is pretty, isn't it? I don't own Zoya Faye so I'll take your word for it. 

    Polish companies really piggyback each other on certain colours, don't they? lol

  7. I like it, but its similarity to Zoya Faye makes me pause. I didn't like Faye, she had too much gold shimmer so she turned a kind of rust color in most lights. Is It's My Year less prone to rustiness?

  8. Not rustiness but there is a duochrome shift in the glass fleck shimmer that will shift to bronze. Orly Oui has the exact gold glass fleck shimmer as the OPI and looks identical in the same lighting. I just swatched and shot a comparison of those two polishes and will have that up in a couple of days. :D

  9. This color confuses me. I want to like it so bad, but there is something holding me back. Purple with gold glitter....it sounds magical...but there is something...something...I think it is the shade of the purple, I am not sure.

  10. I have seen polishes like that. You just can't quite put your finger on what is bugging you. lol In that case, I usually pass. But not always. My New Year mani was proof of that.
