I was browsing the internet the other day (OK, I was nail polish shopping…) and came across the brand new Muppets collection from OPI! I thought it was the cutest idea in the world, and immediately fell in love with one of the polishes – Rainbow Connection.
It’s not hard to see why…
Do you see the sparkles?! The colours?! I am completely and utterly transfixed by this polish, and didn’t think twice about paying the £10.50 for it. I always feel guilty spending that much on a nail polish, but I already knew that it would become one of my favourite polishes of all time.
If I was ever going to create a nail polish inspired by a rainbow, this would be exactly what I would come up with! I also love the fact that the Muppets collection is for Christmas 2011 – this made me think of Christmas straight away.
I was a little concerned that it would look odd on the nails if I were to skip a coloured base, but for the purposes of this review I decided to put just a couple of coats of Rainbow Connection on my nails. In future, I’d probably go for something like a black base colour:
Ok, so my nails aren’t perfectly covered with rainbow glitter goodness, but there is a good base! I painted a couple of coats on my nails and, luckily, it wasn’t gloopy and dried relatively quickly. It is taking me twice as long to write this review as normal, as I can’t stop looking down to admire my nails…
I have to admit that, despite trying to cut back on my nail polish purchases, I am pretty much becoming obsessed with the entire Muppets Christmas 2011 collection by OPI. Almost all of the shades (if not all of them) are glittery, shimmery or sparkly in some way – my idea of nail polish heaven! The shades of the more opaque polishes are also divine. Help me!
You can check out the collection on the Lena White website, where I bought this one from HERE.
