OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It!

This polish is from the newly released Miss Universe Collection. When I saw it for the first time in person I was in awe! It is simply gorgeous in the bottle. It reminded me of the colour of Absolutely Alice, minus the gold glitter. This lacquer is quite vibrant on the nail, but since it isn't neon, I found it very wearable. It most likely isn't going to be office-appropriate, but it is a very fun summer, weekend colour. 

two coats :)

Application was flawless, no problems there! But be warned, this polish is a disaster to remove! I ended up with smurf hands - not attractive. I did use a base coat, but my nails were still very badly stained. I soaked my nails in lemon juice for about 10 minutes, and that did help to remove some of the staining. Just be prepared to slap on a dark polish after removing this one, you'll definitely need to cover up your stained nails.

This polish is part of a limited release, so if you like what you see, snatch it up while you still can!
What do you think about this polish? Have you also had bad staining? Any tips on how to remove and/or limit staining?


  1. This colour works so well for you because it makes a statement in such a unqiue way... it's not your typical bright red polish-type attention grabber, but it certainly gets noticed. Your description of it sounds wonderful too! OPI needs to hire you to market them already.

  2. What a fabulous blue, I need to get this one! :)

  3. Thank you ladies!
    @Jackie: It is a great summer colour, I would definitely suggest picking it up before OPI discontinues it :)
