Round-up : Muppets Collection, rounded up!

Nails I Love


Hi Goddesses

A couple of weekends ago, I was lucky enough oreceive my set of The Muppet Collection by OPI, otherwise known as “OPI tries to ctach up with everybody else” lol.

In the UK, these polishes are £10 EACH, but I got the whole set of eBay USA for $64 …. Do the maths, polish prices are crazy in the UK.  It sent my blog a little crazy, and I got a lot of new followers purely because of these posts – so thank you, each and every one of you who has chosen to have a Crumpet everyday J

What I didn’t do originally, is 1 overall post including them all, so here they are now, IN POPULARITY ORDER.  Popularity based on number of post views.  Also, I didn’t swatch Goin Gonzo, Fresh Frog of Bel Air or Warm & Fozzie (just not my bag …. Sorry!)

In first place, with almost 2.5 times the views of its brothers and sisters, we have RainbowConnection, the crazy glitter bomb.

In 2nd place, the favourite of the discerning polish-aholic, Designer de Better, a metallic suede.

3rd place goes to one of my personal favourites, Meep Meep Meep, a cranberry crush with amazing glass flecks.

4th place goes to the 2nd best glitter in the collection (imo), Excuse Moi! (head toss).  Beautifully named.   As if OPI put Teenage Dream through the blender.

5th is Divine Swine, a violet and silver glitterama.  I swatched it over lilac, but this will probably look best over black, especially if you are lemming Deborah Lippmann’s Bad Romance.

6th place is a tie!  Ooooooh!  In the red corner, Wocka Wocka, my disappointment from the Collection, a reddy shimmer that OPI do All The Time ….

…and Gettin MissPiggy With It, the hilariously named red cousin of Divine Swine.

And the 2 that finished last, I do not get it!!  7th place was one of my unexpected favourites from the bunch, Animal-istic, an orangey flecked masterpiece …

..and bringing up the rear, Pepe’s Purple Passion, a browrple with fabulous flecking.  How the hell is this last lol ???

So there you have it.  I don’t know whether Rainbow Connection is really the favourite, I suspect it was the one people were most interested to see swatches of.  Whatever, I’m just glad OPI finally got their asses back in the game (albeit a lot late).

Thank you for reading – I’m glad you enjoyed these posts, and if you haven’t already, don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY !!!!

Enjoy xxx J
