Sometimes I’m quite simple – sparkly things catch my attention.
If I were a moth, I’m sure I wouldn’t survive for longer than a few minutes because I’d fly to my death on the 60-watt bulb. Lighhhht! Prettttty!
When I caught sight of OPI It’s My Year, I knew that it had to be mine. And when I wore this plum polish packed with golden shimmer, it didn’t disappoint!
This polish looks very different depending on the lighting, so you’ll never get bored.

OPI It’s My Year Review
The main colour is a pinkish plum, but it’s jam packed with golden shimmer. I really love it because it changes a lot depending on the lighting. It felt like I was wearing different polishes!
It’s super shimmery! You know how in the winter, the snow glistens like crazy when the sun shines down on it? That’s exactly the effect you get with It’s My Year. You see a lot of sparkly plum in direct sunlight, but even in dim light, it’s very sparkly. In fact, in dim light, the gold takes center stage. So pretty!
Application & Formula
This applied very easily and smoothly. The dry time was average.
The only thing I noticed that was less than stellar is that this colour is prone to tip wear. I suggest adding more polish onto your tips or waiting longer before applying your fast-dry top coat to avoid this. (All of my photos above show the tip wear I’m talking about….unfortunately.)
Also, you’ll need about 3 coats to get the maximum impact of this colour. This may be a deal breaker for some, but I really don’t mind 3-coaters if the colour’s as brilliant as this. (I really only start to get frustrated if I need to apply 4 or more coats.)
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
If you’re big on super shimmery plum polishes, I feel like this is a must-have because it changes drastically depending on the light,which gives it a lot of character.
Did you buy any polishes from the OPI Miss Universe Collection? Are you pro or anti beauty pageants?
