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….
