OPI Muppets Collection Holiday 2011: Swatches and Review

Yep, here they are!!! Finally!   :)

Since the glitters are not as opaque as a lot of us had hoped, I decided to layer them over my favorite OPI colors from my collection, that are similar in color and tone :)

First up, are the GLITTERS...(no top coats)
 
OPI
"Divine Swine"



























Left two fingers: 2 coats OPI "Divine Swine" over 2 coats "OPI "Houston We Have A Purple"
Right  two fingers: 2 coats OPI "Divine Swine"














OPI
"Gettin Miss Piggy With It"



























Left two fingers: 2 coats OPI "Gettin Miss Piggy With It" over 1 coat OPI "Keys to My Karma"
Right  two fingers: 2 coats OPI "Gettin Miss Piggy With It"














OPI
"Gone Gonzo"
















Left two fingers: 2 coats OPI "Gone Gonzo" over 1 coat OPI "Suzi Says Feng Shui"
Right  two fingers: 2 coats OPI "Gone Gonzo"















 OPI
"Fresh Frog Of Bel Air"
















Left two fingers: 2 coats OPI "Fresh Frog Of Bel Air" over 1 coat OPI "Don't Mess With OPI"
Right  two fingers: 2 coats OPI "Fresh Frog Of Bel Air"















OPI
"Rainbow Connection"



























Left: 2 coats of OPI "Rainbow Connection" over 2 coats of OPI "Wocka Wocka"
Right: 2 coats of OPI "Rainbow Connection"

This clear based multi-glitter packs a punch!!!!!

OPI
"Excuse Moi!"
2 coats









































The perfect pink multi-glitter. This is actually pretty perfect!..and I am not a pink fan, and I think this one is NICE!

Now for the SHIMMERS....(no top coats)


OPI
"Wocka Wocka!"
2 coats



























Blue toned red shimmer.  I love reds with blue undertones, so this one had me from the jump.

OPI
"Animal-istic"
2 coats



























This one is a coral/pink foil! Bright, hot and definitely true to "Animals" Style. :)


OPI
"Meep-Meep-Meep"
2 coats



























A hot raspberry pink with glass fleck shimmer.



OPI
"Pepe's Purple Passion"
2 coats








































 I love how the glass fleck shimmers are hidden  and almost buried, but not so much that you don't see it in the sunlight!  The only thing I would say is this one, needs a top coat to really shine like wine! :)


OPI
"Warm & Fozzie"
2 coats








































A warm chocolate bronze shimmer, gorgeous!


OPI
"Designer De Better"
2 coats








































Love this one! It's a a light taupe champagne fol with pink/coral shimmer. Very pretty!



*WHEW*...We made it to the bottom.  I know OPI usually does 12 bottle collections, but this one seemed longer than usual...LOL. :)

All the shimmers applied perfectly. The glitters were a bit sheer for me (except Excuse moi! which was great), but layered on top of another color, they are allowed to still shine :)

My favorites: Gone Gonzo, Excuse Moi, Meep-Meep-Meep, Designer De Better, and Pepe's Purple Passion.

A friend of mine wore Gonzo layered over black polish, and it looked surprisingly great!
