OPI The Muppets Nail Lacquer in Designer de Better

in Fall / Autumn, O.P.I., Polish

The Muppet Show brings back many fond childhood memories so naturally, I am pretty excited about their upcoming movie and teaming up with O.P.I., just as I am getting into nail polish really is the icing on the cake :-)

Out of the 12 limited edition colours available, I was most attracted to Designer… de Better! and Warm & Fozzie (to be reviewed separately). I’m starting to like these high-shimmer, metallic-finish nail polishes a lot!

Designer… de Better! is a metallic silver polish with pink and copper micro-glitter. It shines differently under different lighting and is an extremely fun shade to wear. Application is relatively easy and is opaque with just 2 coats (no top coat in photos). The dry down is smooth although it looks slightly gritty. I wore this on my nails for nearly a week before it started to show some minimal tip wear.

In a season where red and green are more common, O.P.I. has most certainly delivered a very different collection with The Muppets, comprising of so many fun and beautiful variety of colours.

O.P.I. polishes are sold at a regular retail price of RM59 each, in most nail salons or Shins. You can get them at a better price (ranging between RM30 to RM33) from these e-tailers at Nail Fiesta and Slammin’ Tips’n’Toes.

I think you'll like this one :-) I'd recommend you check out the other shades from the collection if you get the chance 'cos they are all so fun to wear.

Gone Gonzo is such a fun shade! I don't have much experience with glitter nail polishes but I've read the foil removal method is quite effective. You are supposed to soak cotton pads with acetone, place them your nails and then wrap small pieces of foil around. Leave on for 2 to 5 minutes and apparently the polish and glitter will slide right off. I have never tested this though.
