The Muppets nail it with an OPI holiday collection

All of these old cartoon-based movies (Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Smurfs and in November –- Disney’s the Muppets) are making me feel 5 years old again. But thankfully along with the holiday release of the Muppets, there’s a more grown-up component that my inner child and outer beauty junky can appreciate.

In November, OPI (you know, the L.A.-based nail polish company with wacky names attached to each bottle of lacquer) will debut a collection of 12 colors inspired by the Muppets movie and the funky hues and funny names do not disappoint.


There’s Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It, a pop of fuchsia color punctuated with over-the-top flecks of circle shaped glitter; Gone Gonzo, which is also glittery, but a cool, icy blue; and Warm and Fozzy, a shimmer Champagne color that pays homage to my favorite Muppet, Fozzy bear.

The sparkle packed polish is supposed to have a 3-D like effect once swiped onto the nails and the pink shades and metallics are pretty straightforward girly. Miss Piggy would definitely approve.

OPI nail polish collection inspired by Disney’s the Muppets comes out in November at retailers such as JC Penney, ULTA and Trade Secret.
