Muppets Most Wanted by OPI Swatches

It's time to put on makeup, it's time to light the lights....

Sorry, I just couldn't help it. I was a huge Muppet fan as a kid, so get a bit excited when I get the chance to geek out over them. OPI has teamed up with the Muppets once again, with a collection of eight limited edition shades inspired by the new Muppet movie- Muppets Most Wanted. Read on for swatches of Chillin' Like a Villain and Gaining Mole-Mentum!

While this is Muppet Collection, it's also a Spring Collection which is evident in the selection of softer shades present. I like that this time around OPI has given up a more mature take on the Muppets with more wearable shades but with some fun glitters to mix things up. The last Muppet Collection was fun and had some great shades- I'm a major fan of Warm and Fozzie- but the glitters... I can't say I reach for them all that often.

Chillin' Like a Villain is described by OPI as being a 'precious, sheer nude' whaaaat? Not really a nude to me, but it is a yellow based peach. It's also not sheer- well, with one coat you can use this as a sheer if that's your deal, but three thin coats will give you a gorgeous, opaque finish. A very pretty shade that I will sporting quite frequently this Spring.

Gaining Mole-Mentum is a mix of chunky shards of gold, silver and rose gold in a clear base. I didn't think this glitter would be my cup of tea, but OH MY! I love it! It's gorgeous- especially over Chillin' Like a Villain- and applies with such ease. One coat dabbed on and you're set. I quite like matte glitters, so I couldn't help but show it topped with Essie Matte About You. Love it, but what's with the name? I don't remember any mole Muppets...

Overall, I'm quite pleased with both of the shades I tried and I have a feeling I'll be picking up a few more when the collection is officially released later this month. What do you think? Muppet Fan? Any shades you're looking forward to.
