OPI Warm and Fozzie

5 Dec

Hey gang! I hope you’ve been staying bundled up wherever you are – or maybe you haven’t had to. The weather has been truly bizarre here in New York – really cold in the morning and at night, and about 50 degrees during the day! – and yet I still managed to get sick. Typical.

Either way, I’m really excited to share this nail polish color with you guys. It’s another member of the OPI Muppets Collection, and it’s perfect for the holiday season. Meet OPI Warm and Fozzie!

Honestly, if you only get one color from OPI‘s Muppets collaboration (though Excuse Moi! is fabulous!), make it this one. There’s much more to this shade than meets the eye. Sure, it may appear to be a simple bronze nail polish…

Do you see that?! (Besides the tipwear, which is totally my fault – this is after a WEEK of wear with no chips, lots of abuse to my hands, and two days without topcoat!) Warm and Fozzie is totally shifty. And by that, I mean it has total duochrome tendencies. It shifts to a pinkish bronze and a greenish bronze depending on the light, both of which you can see here, but takes on an overall brownish-bronze shade. The appearance of the polish is that of a foil on the nail (but I didn’t find that it really applied like one).

Pros: I don’t have any bronze colors in my collection that are as unique as Warm and Fozzie. It held up very, very well in terms of wear. Oh, by the way – did I not already mention it’s awesome?!

Cons: Minor con – took three coats, which is a little weird for a foil, at least in my experience. Don’t let that keep you from buying it – Warm and Fozzie is a-mazing.

I’ll be wearing this several times into the holiday season – it’s a way better alternative to red nail polish for parties! If you’re interested in cuddling up to OPI Warm and Fozzie, act fast, because it’s limited edition. Check OPI‘s website to find an OPI retailer near you.

Anyone pick up any beauty goodies during Black Friday or Cyber Monday that I need to hear about!? I actually reigned in my credit card and shopping addiction, and didn’t buy ANYTHING on either day, but I’d love to hear about your purchases! Let me know in the comments!

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!

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.)

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.
