Crown Me Already!

OPI Crown Me Already is from the 2011 Miss Universe collection. They released four shades in this collection: Congeniality is My Middle Name (A gorgeous dark berry sparkle/shimmer that I want to get my hands on), It's MY Year (plum purple with gold sparkle), Swimsuit... Nailed It! (a bright shimmery blue) and Crown Me Already.

Crown Me Already is a tiny glitter base, slightly larger circular silver glitter and huge hexagonal glitter flecks. It's glitter, glitter, and more glitter. I could see it being a perfect shade for that New Year's Eve party, but I'm sure I'll wear it all the time, it's so pretty to look at!

It's a dense glitter, this is only three coats but I probably could have stopped at two. It's so dense that you won't want to use this one for layering. Application is great, a little bit thin, but the glitter goes on smooth and dries slightly rough. I used one thick coat of seche vite to take away the roughness and might add another top coat for a completely smooth surface.

I apologize for how horrid my cuticles look, this week has been rough on them but I just had to show you this one!

Wear is great, typical of OPI products, although removal can be slow as with any dense glitter.

What do you think? Is it a shade you will be sporting?
