O.P.I 'Muppets Most Wanted' Collection (Review + Swatches)


Hey Everyone, 

Just in time for the release of Disney's new 'Muppets Most Wanted' movie, set to hit theatres later this month, O.P.I has released a limited-edition eight shade collection inspired by the Muppet's 'fun-loving colourful cast of characters'. From soft, light pinks and pearls, to bold metallics and beautiful glitters, the collection is absolutely stunning (the Muppets never looked so good) and, has quickly become one my favourite O.P.I releases in a while. 

Below is a closer look at six of the shades from the new collection: 



O.P.I Nail Polish in 'Int'l Crime Caper': 
A gorgeous opalescent pearl with iridescent pink and green undertones, 'Int'l Crime Caper' applies beautifully and opaquely in two coats, giving the nails a clean, fresh look for spring (this shade makes for the ultimate nude nail). 


O.P.I Nail Polish in 'I Love Applause': 
A light, creamy baby-pink, 'I Love Applause' applies smoothly and evenly for a beautiful, soft finish. Unlike a lot of the other sheer baby-pink polishes I have tried (think OPI's 'Bubble Bath') 'I Love Applause' has a lot of pigmentation, applying opaquely in just two coats.  



O.P.I Nail Polish in 'Kermit Me To Speak': 
A stunning golden-olive/purple duo-chrome, 'Kermit Me To Speak' applies opaquely in two coats giving nails a metallic finish that changes colours depending on the angle in which light hits the nails (love it!). 


O.P.I Nail Polish in 'Miss Piggy's Big Number': 
A metallic sapphire blue with iridescent purple undertones, 'Miss Piggy's Big Number' applies somewhat sheerly/streakily, requiring a good three coats to reach full opacity. While I wish this polish was a little easier to work with, the gorgeous end result, a stunning metallic blue, is, in my opinion, worth the extra effort. 


O.P.I Nail Polish in 'Let's Do Anything We Want': 
A finely milled rose gold and silver glitter with large, square-shaped white confetti pieces, 'Let's Do Anything We Want' is surprisingly easy to work with (you don't have to dig each piece of confetti out of the bottle). While I personally would wear this shade over a light base (think 'I Love Applause'), this glitter polish can worn on its own, achieving a fairly opaque finish in three coats.  


O.P.I Nail Polish in 'Muppets World Tour': 
A finely milled silver shimmer with large chunks of pink, blue and peach glitter, 'Muppets World Tour' applies beautifully and opaquely in just two coats (this is one glitter polish that does not require a base). Like all glitter polishes, 'Muppets World Tour' is difficult to remove, so be sure to have your best bottle of nail polish remover on hand. 

With a suggested retail price of $10.95 CND, the new 'Muppets Most Wanted' collection polishes are available in stores as of this month.

    1. It's so pretty. I need to get my hands on the new Glitter Peel Off Base Coat from OPI so I can get my glitter polishes off without scrubbing my nails for 20 minutes. xx
