OPI Muppets collection: Rainbow Connection, Excuse Moi! and Gone Gonzo! swatches

Today I have some swatches for you from the highly anticipated OPI Muppets collection! This is OPI's holiday collection for 2011 and this year they've given us yet another fabulous collection. This year they've collaborated with The Muppets and the upcoming The Muppets movie with 12 amazing polishes - and 6 of them are GLITTERS!! I've been waiting for The Muppets collection to come out for sooooo long and I couldn't wait to swatch them! Today I have Rainbow Connection, Excuse Moi! and Gone Gonzo! for you.


What they say:

"The dazzling Muppets lacquer collection is not something to miss, featuring 6 bright sequined glittery lacquers, four metallic shades and 2 rich shades of burgundy red.

The partnership between The Muppets and OPI, both icon brands, is in their ability to be fun, creative, quirky and passionate. The collection is an epic spray of colour, glitter and fantasy, in true Muppet style, OPI’s The Muppet Collection will not disappoint."


Onto the swatches!

Rainbow Connection is a rainbow glitter suspended in a clear base. It contains multicoloured hex and small round glitters and is a GLITTER PARTY IN A BOTTLE! This was the glitter I was most hoping to own as I LOVE glitters like this. The formula is a little thick so the glitter doesn't glide onto the nail easily. I use what I call the "splat method" to apply where I basically get the brush and "splat" the glitters on haha. I use this method to apply other hex glitters too like the Milani Jewel Fx glitters. It's somewhat difficult to wear Rainbow Connection alone as it would become quite thick so I'd suggest layering it over a base colour. If you'd like to see Rainbow Connection alone have a look at my post here. I've layered a few coats here over a silver foil and I think it looks amazing. I'm wearing it as my NOTD right now because I couldn't bear to take it off!


Close up:




Excuse Moi! is a very pretty warm pink glitter. It contains medium round rainbow glitter with silver microglitter suspended in a warm pink base. It is so pretty and quite unusual. It is nearly completely opaque in 1 coat which I'm amazed at! 2 coats is pictured.


Close up:




Gone Gonzo! is a sparkly aqua glitter. It contains aqua glitter with silver hex glitters suspended in a clear base. It applies quite sheer so a few coats is needed to reach opacity. The formula is a little on the thick side so I'd recommend waiting a good few minutes before applying more coats or it will clump. My pictures don't do this polish justice - in real life Gone Gonzo just dazzles!! 3 coats is pictured.

Overall: These glitters are just amazing and absolutely perfect for the upcoming party season! I know I'll be rocking at least one of these glitters on NYE this year! Yes glitters are a pain to remove but oh so worth it in my book for the sparkle and fun that comes from wearing them. I DESPERATELY need the rest of the OPI Muppets collection. YOU need them. Your sister needs them. Your mum needs them too. Enough said.

Details: The limited edition OPI Muppets collection is available now at selected salons and David Jones store nationally for $19.95.

  6. Wow! Rainbow Connection is SO gorgeous. It's probably a hassle to remove all that glitter, however. I think that time is worth it!

  11. I want Excuse moi even if it's a little hard to apply. Love how you've worn it here and would probably do the same. The effect is insanely colorful and funky. I like it.

    And I totally agree with you about removing glitter. I hate it but it makes me happy looking at my nails!

  16. I love the Gone gonzo the most! The Excuse Moi looks great too ^____^ The rainbow one looks amazing aswell but it looks similar to normal multi-coloured glitter polishes imo~ Haha, Have fun taking the nail polish off~ I'm going to try your tin foil method soon!
