OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection Swatches and Review...

Hi Everyone! Today I have for you my swatches and review of the OPI Muppets Most Wanted collection. The collection was inspired by the Disney film with the same name which released a few months ago. Although I have not seen the movie and when I think of The Muppets, I picture brighter shades than this collection contains, I have to say I love these lighter shades!


Miss Piggy's Big Number
An electric blue with a blue shimmer. It is a bit lighter and brighter on the nail than what is in the bottle. It has slight duochrome properties and transitions to a more blurple (bluish purple) a the more indirect angles. The formula is a bit thin at first which made it difficult for me to keep my brush strokes perfectly straight and it does leave some visible brush strokes. Also make sure to wrap the tips on all coats or it will be difficult to cover. It does build up to full opacity at two coats, even with the thinner formula. The color is just gorgeous! Swatches are two coats with no top coat...

Muppets World Tour (layered over Miss Piggy's Big Number)
A clear base with very fine silver glitter, slightly larger white and silver glitter, and even larger hex glitter in pink and light blue. I applied one generous coat plus a top coat over Miss Piggy's Big Number. There is plenty of glitter in each brush stroke and it distributes evenly over the nail. It is probably one of my favorite glitters in a while! It is top coat hungry! One layer of top coat does not perfectly smooth it out and when left with no top coat it is lightly textured which is probably how I would choose to wear it next time. I just love this combination with the blue. I'm sure it will be making an appearance during winter time. Can't you just picture it with some snowflakes?...

I Love Applause
A delicate sheer pink jelly. It has a nice formula which doesn't drag or leave bald spots, but it did take three coats to even out the color on the nail. It is lovely and squishy looking due to the jelly formula. I'm a big fan of sheers such as this and it is a lovely one. Swatches are three coats plus a top coat...

Let's Do Anything We Want! (layered over I Love Applause)
A clear base with small rose pink and white glitter which some larger white square glitter tossed in. I used one generous coat plus a top coat over I Love Applause. The larger square glitter does tend to settle in the bottle, but I was able to easily get a few pieces on each nail without too much effort or fishing for it. The small glitter distributes very well on the nail and there is plenty of it in each brush stroke. Swatches are with a top coat...

Kermit Me to Speak
A light violet to copper duochrome. It starts out rather sheer and takes three coats to build up to good coverage. I suggest wrapping the tips on all three coats with this one as well to get the best coverage. Aside from the sheerness, it applies very easily and the formula is very nice. Who doesn't love a duochrome? Swatches here are three coats plus a top coat...




Also looks fantastic over black to make the colors really pop in just one coat...

Chillin' Like a Villain
A sheer peachy jelly. This reads very nude on my hands. It is similar in formula to I Love Applause above. Does not drag or bald, but it does take three coats to build up to decent coverage. At one coat, it would be perfect for a french tip mani. Again, if you love squishy sheers as I do, this is right up your alley. Swatches are with no top coat...

Gaining Mole-mentum (layered over Chillin' Like a Villain)
A clear base filled with glitter shards in silver, champagne and pink gold. I brushed/ dabbed this beauty on to get good coverage in one application. Some of the glitter pieces were bent and stuck out above the surface so I made sure to pick those off before adding a top coat. Majority of them do lie flat so it was easy. Really beautiful and unusual. I just love the unique look of this...

Int'l Crime Caper
A sheer milky colored base with a violet shimmer and blue glass flecks scattered throughout. It is sheer on it's own. Three coats as seen below leave the nail line still visible. The formula is very nice and it applies easily. Does not get thick or goopy with multiple coats. I wore it as is for a few days and really like the look. Swatches are with no top coat...




For those that really dislike a visible nail line, this beauty can easily be layered over other shades for a beautiful shimmer. Layered here over Chillin' Like a Villain, it adds a lovely violet pearly shine...



And how gorgeous does it look over black? This is one coat layered...
