OPI Muppets Most Wanted Nail Lacquers


OPI Muppets Most Wanted Nail Lacquers Set Duo Review Swatches

OPI Muppets Most Wanted Nail Lacquers £11.50 each

If you saw my Big Savings haul the other day then you will have seen that I managed to pick up these beautiful OPI duos in the Beauty Bay sale for only £11.02. Considering that OPI lacquers retail for £11.95 now, here in the UK, I'm so glad that I managed to find such an amazing deal on this newly released and highly anticipated collection.


When I heard OPI were releasing a second Muppets collection to coincide with the release of the new Muppets movie, Muppets Most Wanted, I couldn't wait to see what shades and more precisely, glitters, they would include. I think we can all remember the buzz and excitement created by the Rainbow Connection glitter from the first collection which inspired so many different dupes. But for me the first Muppets OPI collection was all about Excuse-Moi! It's easily one of my favourite nail polishes of all time and it's just the perfect glitter, which can be worn all year round. To say I had big expectations for this new collection might be a bit of an understatement but I have certainly not been disappointed with the ones I managed to get my hands on.


Miss Piggy's Big Number OPI Muppets Most Wanted Nail Lacquers Set Swatches Review Duo

I wasn't sure if I needed Miss Piggy's Big Number as I have quite a few navy shades in my collection already but I just had to have Muppets World Tour so I gave in and purchased the Romancing the Frog duo. I am so glad that I did as it really isn't your typical navy shade. It seems much more vibrant and sapphire like than similar blues I've tried out in the past. This was a little sheer compared to some of the other OPI lacquers I have tried in the past but after two coats I gained my desired effect, as shown here.


Muppets World Tour OPI Muppets Most Wanted Nail Lacquers Set Swatches Review Duo

Muppets World Tour was the one polish that I was the most excited to try and for me this is the one you just have to buy from this collection if you only buy one. I haven't seen anything like this from any other nail polish brand and it really did amaze me. This is just one coat of Muppets World Tour over Miss Piggy's Big Number and just look at it! Unlike some other glitters, this doesn't take a thousand and one coats to get some of the glitter from the bottle onto the nails. This polish gives you such a great glitter payoff. 


Gaining Mole-mentum OPI Muppets Most Wanted Nail Lacquers Set Swatches Review Duo

Gaining Mole-mentum is a glitter like no other. It's basically a shredded glitter which is something I really haven't seen a lot of from any other nail polish brands either. I was a little worried that it might be jaggy or a little strange on the nail but I really didn't have a problem with it at all. I have applied two coats of this over Kermit Me To Speak and I simply adore the gold, silver and rose gold flakes in this polish. It's absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to try it over different shades.


Kermit Me To Speak OPI Muppets Most Wanted Nail Lacquers Set Swatches Review Duo

Kermit Me To Speak is a beautiful duo-chrome shade which shifts between so many different shades. In some lights it looks purple in others bronze and in others it even has a greenish tint. Again this felt a little sheer when I had applied just one coat so I made sure to apply two coats here.

So those are the four polishes that you can find in the Muppets Most Wanted duo sets. I just wish they had the other polishes from the collection in duos as well but maybe then I would have ended up buying the entire collection. Hehe. Like all limited edition OPI collections make sure you get them while you can. I can't tell you how many times I've thought I'll just wait until the collection goes into the sale. And this is normally a good few months after they have been released. By that time they have often vanished from stores and online meaning I end up regretting not buying them when I had the chance. This basically happened to me with the Katy Perry collection all those years ago. So hopefully they will get more of these duos back in stock on Beauty Bay soon.

What has your favourite OPI collection been? And what do you think of the Muppets Most Wanted collection? Are you a fan of OPI or what other brands are your favourites when it comes to nail polish?
