OPI – Gettin Miss Piggy With It

Hi Goddesses

Another Muppets marvel for you.  This is GETTING MISS PIGGY WITH IT, a sensational red glitter.

Firstly, this isn’t just red, this is RED!!!!!! A super vibrant, bright red glitter, sprinkled with round silver discs.

You can use this on its own, or layered.  Personally, I prefer it layered, and I think we have a lot of fun ahead of us with that in mind!  It’s on its own on the thumb (2 coats) and I just didn’t like it.  I thought it looked a little threadbare, and also that the glitter looked too “individual” – it was as if I could see each of 1000 pieces.

On the other fingers it’s layered over 1 coat of Sally Hansen RIGHT SAID RED, a bright red.  Personally, I think it looks loads better, because it smoothes the red glitter out without diminishing its intensity.  I also think it makes it easier to see how fiery the sparkle is.  I think this is going to look A-MAAAAY-ZINGGG over black.

Although I love silver, I’m not sure it was the right choice in this polish.  I don’t know whether something warmer and golder would have looked better ?  The silver seems to stand out very starkly, and I can’t decide whether that makes me love it all the more, or wish it were different.

Of course, this has got Christmas written all over it.  It’s also a great party polish.  I have a feeling I might tire of it eventually, but in the meantime I am soooo grateful OPI pulled their finger out their asses and made some truly fabulous polishes before the year ran out.

Enjoy J
