Announcing the “Muppets Most Wanted” movie tie-in set from OPI:
As Kermit would say, “Hi ho!” and as Beaker would add, “Meep, meep!” 😀
I confess to a widely-shared love of the Muppets who are most certainly not just for kids. One of my must-see Christmas shows every year is 1987’s made-for-TV “A Muppet Family Christmas,” and some of the first OPI polishes I bought years ago were from the 2011 Muppettes collection. In fact, the polish I use in my avatar on Facebook and other sites shows my nails in the silver foil Designer De-Better from that set.
The new Muppets Most Wanted collection contains eight polishes — several pastels, a few glitters, a duochrome, and one dark blue that is pretty but looks like the red-headed stepchild of the bunch.
Muppets World Tour — This white quartz with colorful sparkle is a global sensation.
The mini-set will contain Miss Piggy’s Big Number, I Love Applause, Kermit Me To Speak, and Chilling Like A Villain.
Unfortunately I’m not thrilled with this set. Some of the colors look recycled; Miss Piggy’s Big Number looks like Into the Night from OPI’s 2012 Spiderman set, and the pale pink and the peachy nude look like several of the company’s past “ballet” shades.
Actually, I’m strongly reminded of OPI’s “Oz the Great and Powerful” set from last year:
Oh, come ON!!! Too many similarities. <The Silver Nail pouts and sulks, since she wanted more originality and more Muppet-like colors.>
Let me point you towards a blogger who swatches them ALL, BeautyGeeks. Great photos & swatches. The one she likes the least is the one I like the most, Muppets World Tour. I like the duochrome, too, and remember now I wanted a similar shade from China Glaze but found their other duochromes too brushstroke-y. So I might get those two.
Release date expected to be sometime in March and the movie itself releases March 21, 2014.
