OPI Muppets - the glitters! And Kermit take two ;-)

I decided to do a simpler take of last week's Kermit the frog nails after I was done swatching the glitters and I came up with this:

Which was of course based on the Muppets mini box!

I am still looking for a good Kermit green :-/ This time I used OPI Who The Shrek Are You? I need something a little greener! Anyways, onto the swatches!

The Muppets collection has 6 glitters. Left right we have Gone Gonzo! Fresh Frog of Bel Air, Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, Rainbow Connection, Excuise Moi! and Divine Swine.

All the flash swatches are at three coats so you can see how sheer they are - the glitters (with the exception of Excuse Moi!) are all clear polishes with glitter. Above we have Divine Swine.

Above we have Divine Swine again, no flash and a couple more coats to get a good coverage. This polish has small magenta coloured glitter with big silver glitter particles (hexagon shaped, not round).

Above is another swatch of Excuse Moi! I know I swatched the mini version last weekend but I love this polish so much I had to show it twice! This is the flash shot with two coats. The formula is great - no running, opaque at two coats. Love. If you buy anything from this collection (and you like glitters) it would have to be this one. The others have nothing on this polish.

Non flash shot of Excuse Moi! This goes on the favourites list.

Above we have three coats of Fresh Frog of Bel Air. It is a little sheer and the yellowness is possibly the green from the glitter running into the clear base coat. Similar to Divine Swine this has small green glitter with larger silver glitter particles.

Non flash shot of Fresh Frog of Bel Air with a couple more coats (approx 5 for all). Looks better now but these glitters are only practical for layering unless you are patient enough to apply all 5 coats and then remove them at a later date!

Above is a flash swatch of Gettin' Miss Piggy With It. Three coats but this polish is actually a little different in that while there are bigger silver chucks of glitter with the smaller red glitter, there's also big red chunks of glitter. This is the only polish of the 5 sheer clear base glitters that has bigger glitter in another colour.

Non flash shot of Gettin' Miss Piggy With It and more coats.

Above is a three coat flash swatch of Gone Gonzo! A blue clear based glitter polish with bigger silver chunks.

More coats and a non flash swatch of Gone Gonzo!

Lastly we have three coats of Rainbow Connection. This consists of small rainbow glitter particles with two bigger hexagon shaped glitter particles - rainbow and silver I should say. Lots of orange but I don't notice any red glitter.

More coats and no flash of Rainbow Connection.

Well that is it for now! I hope you enjoyed the swatches are having a fabulous weekend! I was going to do gardening but it's been raining all morning. Boo. Better do some chores then ;-) Until next time my lovelies...


  1. love the Kermit nails! and the glitters are all so pretty!!(:

  2. I'm a sucker for glitters so there's a few in this lot that make it onto my wishlist. Love the red Gettin' Miss Piggy With It especially - very festive!

  3. @paint that nail thank you! I always cave and buy the glitters, I need to learn some restraint!

    @Vita Definitely some festive glitters in this collection! I really needed the green one for some reason!
