OPI The Muppets Holiday 2011 - The Glitters

Here is the second half of The Muppets collection from OPI, which came out for the holiday season of 2011. I reviewed the first half of the collection yesterday in case you missed it.

Rainbow Connection is a multi-colored glitter polish with medium hex glitter and smaller round glitter. It was a very popular type of polish in the last year or so, after the success of Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday polish. This is just a great polish and I don't care how many dupes there are, I love it. It's one you want to place on the nail rather than paint on.

Excuse Moi is a unique one however, I can't think of any possible duplicates for this. It has a warm reddish pink jelly base with gallons of silver microglitter and smallish/medium round multicolored glitter pieces. Very cool and fun!

Gone Gonzo! was of course named after me! Ok...just kidding. It was actually named for that crazy adorable weirdo muppet, Gonzo. This has a clear base filled with pretty medium blue glitter and medium silver hex glitter. Pretty sheer.

Gettin' Miss Piggy With It! is the same type of polish as Gone Gonzo, a small glitter with larger hexes this time in a shade of ruby red. The hexes are silver and pinky red. Also rather sheer.

Fresh Frog of Bel Air is in the same realm as the previous two, this time in a medium green with silver hexes. Sh-sh-sheer.

Divine Swine is the last polish in the bunch, it is made up of warm purple glitter with silver hex glitter. Again, on the sheer side.

I enjoyed this collection, but would've preferred them do one glitter like Gone Gonzo! and maybe done more colors of polish in the style of Excuse Moi, which is the standout winner in this group.

I always say better late than never and hope you aren't too cross with me for posting this collection so late. I love OPI and I love the Muppets and I would've kicked myself forever if I never reviewed these as I intended. 2011 and a lot of last year were tough ones for me but I'm doing well now and what better way to take advantage of it than to blog my buns off!

  1. I would have liked more in the same style as Excuse Moi too. That's the only one of these that I picked up.

  2. I agree with you, excuse moi is totally outstanding!!! Still I find this collection a lot more Christmas-y than this year's Skyfall Collection. And I am always in to also see older polishes, there are always tons of reviews of the latest collections!!! So thank you for bringing showing us these, I really enjoyed!!!

  5. I did not like these when they came out but I bought the entire collection because I still was into doing that with all the holiday OPI collections - I think I wore 2 of the glitters maybe...then in the past yr they came out a # of times and come Dec I wore a # of them...despite I really hate trying to get glitters off. But these have some fun shades and I like glitters that are not too opaque so I can enjoy my base shade peeking out in contrast or in a mono-tone look.
