OPI Excuse Moi!

14 Nov

Hey gang – I know it’s been a while, and for that I do apologize. We have much to catch up on. I’ve gotten some great questions in my absence, figured out some exciting techniques (always learning!), and acquired some awesome new products. I do truly regret not posting on Halloween, and have gotten some requests to post my look, so I will probably backpost that if I figure out how to do that – or just post it a month late! (I will say that I scared myself applying the first part of my face.)

SO – about awesome new products. You may have – must have – all heard about the new Muppets collection for OPI! I am a major Muppets fan and have been since I was a wee one, so I knew it was a lineup that I couldn’t pass on. I plan on going back for more, but I totally snagged THE best one in the bunch, the Miss Piggy-inspired Excuse Moi!

OPI Excuse Moi! nail polish

To be honest, I am often hesitant about applying glitter nail polish – we all know they’re a huge pain to get off (check out this how-to guide I wrote to make the glitter polish removal process easier), but once I actually slap it on, I’m all…glitter, please don’t leave me. And you know how I said recently that I’m not super into pink nail polish, particularly as a manicure? Well, for this shade, I can make an exception, because damn. (I hope you heard that in your head narrated by Will Smith in ‘Men In Black,’ because that’s how I heard it in mine. Okay, let’s continue.)

OPI Excuse Moi! Nail Polish

Dude, look at this! This nail polish is like Elle Woods meets 1980s Elton John. And I have no problem with that. (In fact, I’m all about it.) I honestly don’t think you can deny the fabulosity of this nail polish. This raspberry-colored glitterbomb is a microglitter base studded with larger hexagonal glitter flakesraspberry, iridescent, and the occasional green, probably for Kermit!

Pros: TWO COATS. Glitters almost always take more than two coats to look this awesome. I could have applied three, but I don’t want to tempt the nail polish removal gods.

Cons: You might be able to guess that this polish feels as gritty as all hell. I don’t really mind, to be honest, and I think that’s kind of cool. You can fix that with liberal coats of Seche.

To be honest, you’re not going to have the easiest time finding this nail polish, but if you want it need it gotta have it, I would try Amazon.com after checking out your local OPI retailer – visit OPI.com to find yours!

What do you think? I know a few people who are going to need this after seeing these pictures! I also know a few people who are definitely going to pass. Which one of those people are you?

I missed you! Each one of you. Don’t believe otherwise.
