And a shot of the bottle.
Congeniality is My Middle Name came out this past summer with the limited edition OPI Miss Universe collection. This is one of two shimmers included in the collection, and I have to tip my hat to OPI on this one. I usually never wear pink, especially a pink that leans so close to purple. But this one is nice. A deep pink with a purple base, I'm sure this polish really sings in the sun. Unfortunately I have none of that today, so we'll just have to make do with the flash. Which didn't turn out poorly, so I think we're good.
The formula on this one gave me just a little bit of trouble. It was thinner than OPIs normally are, so it was a little difficult to control, but nothing you can't handle. I used two coats and it brought the polish to full opacity. The microshimmer in this is what makes it special. It's not just your run-of-the mill berry; it's packed with tiny, twinkling purple and pink microglitter that sparkles when in bright light.
I think this is more of an autumn color than a summer one. For me at least. Berry shades always make me think autumn or winter. Regardless, if you're a fan of berries or pinks, I wouldn't hesitate about picking this one up. You won't be disappointed. Plus, as I mentioned, I think it's a good transition color from summer into fall for those of us who aren't ready to go full-on gray and vampy yet.
Opinions on Congeniality is My Middle Name? Does it make anyone else think of Sandra Bullock? Any pink fans that absolutely adore this one?
