SWATCHES | OPI MUPPETS MOST WANTED COLLECTION
If you haven't heard already, a new Muppet adventure awaits! "Muppets Most Wanted" premieres by the end of the month and for this occasion, OPI teamed up with Disney once again to give us eight new nailpolishes which will also be this year's Soft Shades collection from the brand.
We have a milky peach nude; a sheer baby pink; a somewhat olive-toned rosy mauve duocrome; a kind of glowing blue metallic with the slightest hint of duocrome power to it; an opalescent pearl with pink and blue shimmer that works well as a top coat along with the three different glitter polishes of the collection; one with gold, silver and rose gold glitter flakes; one with small round pink and square white glitters mixed with bigger white square glitters; and the third having different sized sparkles in white, gold, silver, blue and a purple-y pink colour - all three with a clear base.
I'm quite excited to watch the movie to see if perhaps it gets just a bit more clear where the inspiration for these colours came from. As I mentioned, this is the Soft Shades collection of this year and if you don't know what that is, it's usually exactly what it sounds like: OPI is releasing a small collection each year containing softer shades, great for the "wedding season" among other things - usually a lot of sheer pinks and nudes. Surprisingly (since I'm ususally instantly stuck on the darker shades or the glitters) the classic Soft Shades hues of I Love Applause and Chillin' Like A Villain is my top two in this collection. I love the freshness and simplicity of them. All of the swatches have two coats but these two I prefer better with three.
I Love Applause is also a perfect base for Let's Do Anything We Want! and beautiful underneath Gaining Mole-mentum, just as Muppets World Tour is lovely on top of Int'l Crime Caper and Miss Piggy's Big Number. That's one of the plus sides to this slightly different Soft Shades collection; you can mix and match a lot more than usual!
The collection will be out in stores by the end of this month(US)/beginning of April (here in Sweden and internationally).
