OPI – Animal-istic

Now this little gem was part of yet another polish swap with a lovely US based blogger, The Nail Polish Guru.  I know I’ve done a lot of swatching of US based polishes lately, but they are lovely and there are ways to get your hands on them.

Animal-istic was part of The Muppets range released by OPI in Winter 2011 to coincide with the movie (which incidentally, I loved) and is a collection packed full of glitter and shimmer and loveliness.  That said, I don’t own any others.  Which is odd because they are right up my street.

Anyway, this is lovely glass flecked red-orange.  Its not an orange red.  No no no.  Its a red-orange.  Its very sheer in one coat, giving a hint to the nail that looks slightly unpleasant.  But a couple more coats and bang, there you go!  Formula as well as being sheer was a bit runny but if you apply thin coats and give a good amount of time for drying you will be fine. Its so worth it for the colour alone, trust me…

I adore colours like this, red, oranges, orange-red, red-orange.  Seems I’m on a bit of a thing with them at the moment….

You can buy The OPI Muppet Collection from Lena White in the UK for £8.25 each (current reduced price…)

Did you buy any from the Muppet collection?
