OPI Muppets Nail Polish Collection Holiday 2011

I don’t know about you but I grew up watching the Muppets, so I was pleased and intrigued to hear that OPI was doing a holiday collection in our favorite puppets’ honor!  The collection consists of 12 shades and I ended up buying 4 of them from my local beauty supply store.  Here are my swatches and reviews.

Warm & Fozzie

This copper foil has a titch of duochrome that emerges in certain lights.  This is gorgeous, the perfect fall color and festive enough for the holidays too.

 

Designer, De Better!

This reminds me of ORLY Rage if it were reversed – instead of copper with silver flecks, silver with copper flecks.  The copper serves to warm up the silver foil.  Quite a wearable shade.

 

Pepe’s Purple Passion

Pepe’s is a vampy purplish creme that leans towards jelly, as it is somewhat sheer.  You can see the flake-like shimmer throughout.  This style of shimmer reminds me of Revlon’s Fizz nail polishes.  Very pretty, a nice twist on the classic vampy burgundy nail.

 

Excuse Moi!

And now for my favorite.  Excuse Moi! is a bright vibrant pink jelly base brimming with pink, and some blue and green glitter.  Due to the pink base you can build it up on its own or use it for layering.  Here I painted two coats over Designer, De Better!

 

 

Will you be choosing any of these polishes for your holiday looks?

OPI I Vant to Be Alone-Star + POP Beauty Twinkle glitter

I Vant to be Alone-Star is from OPI’s Texas collection.  Why the Vant instead of Want?  Is this a typo or some kind of Transylvanian reference?  That aside, it is a pretty, cool grey pearl.  (Disregard the raggedy cuticles; these pix were taken awhile ago.)

 

Then I layered POP Beauty Twinkle glitter polish on top.  It’s a primarily silver holographic glitter, but you can see hints of pink, green, blue, and gold as well.  Since it’s finely textured it’s not as hard to remove as coarser, denser glitters.

Goodbye, Summer

The nights are getting nippy, the fragrance of wood smoke is in the air, and Halloween will be here in a couple of weeks.  There’s no denying that fall is here and summer is over.  Still, I wanted to do a last hurrah with some summery nail polish spam.
