One of the most talked about nail polish collections of 2011 was the O.P.I and Muppets collaboration. With a bunch of gorgeous glitters and lovely metallics, it was bound to be a big hit around Christmas and especially with magpies like me. After seeing the swatches of the collection, I knew that I was going to be buying Rainbow Connection because it was just amazing in the photos. The other glitters, pretty as they were, didn't really jump out at me so I skipped them and went for the one I had my mind set on and it really didn't disappoint.
Rainbow Connection (no idea what the name is about but whatever) is a multi-coloured glitter nail polish with around six different sized glitter particles so when it is applied it just looks so eye catching and mesmerising. I paired it with a black base because the polish doesn't have a base shade to sit on but I am tempted to try it with a navy blue or maybe a gold or maybe a silver.... The possibilities are endless!
This is a close up of Rainbow Connection, you'll have to excuse the tip wear on the nails. I forgot to snap a photo straight after I painted them so this is after two days of wear.
Isn't that just one of the prettiest nail polishes you've ever seen!?!
I actually couldn't stop looking at my nails and I got asked by several people which nail polish I was wearing so it is a crowd pleaser too. It's a shame that full on glitter nails look a little out of place during the week because I would definitely make this a routine thing but maybe I'll just save it for once in a while when I need a bit of a sparkle and pick me up.
I don't think you can pick Rainbow Connection up anywhere anymore because I heard it sold out almost immediately but I'm sure eBay has a few knocking around so check there if you're after one.
What do you lot think? Is 'Rainbow Connection' a little too much for you or are you all about the glitz?
Until next time...
