On Wednesdays We Wear Pink: OPI: Congeniality is my Middle Name

Hi everyone! It's an icky rainy day here in CT but it's Pink Wednesday so I can't help but smile :-)

Today I am featuring OPI's Congeniality is my Middle Name from the Miss Universe Collection.  This is a deep berry/wine color with a really pretty shimmer.  I would call it a pink but I guess it's not a true pink. Oh well, for the season it works for Pink Wednesday in my mind. In some lighting, which I could not capture in the photo, the shimmer appears purple.  It's a really nice color for the fall and winter season. It has a good depth to it and I think it would flatter a ton of skin tones.

The formula on this was lovely. I used three coats for the opacity shown simply because sometimes I feel like shimmers need the depth of that third coat. Could you get away with two? Probably. My nails are unusually long for my normal taste so I wanted to make sure I had no visible nail lines because they drive me nuts. Three coats did it for me. 

What do you think? I am a fan. I think I will wear this periodically throughout the fall. 

I love love love the feed back on the French Manicure I have been  getting. Thanks all for participating in the comments. If you  have more to say make sure to head over to that post and sound off. Also, don't forget to vote in the poll to the right! I love hearing your thoughts!!
