I have been severely neglecting this blog recently, but I do have reasons!
- No camera! I managed to drop my iPhone in the bath. It was not happy :(
- College work - just given in my first batch of assignments, which all had to be in within the same week. Major panic!
- Personal life: I got one. True to my blog name, I was well and truly lead astray by something new and shiny - a relationship :s Sadly it turned out that this 'man' was actually a pig. Still, no harm done!
The Long-Promised OPI Muppets Glitter Collection Photos!
From left to right (all photos in post): Rainbow Connection, Fresh Frog of Bel Air, Gone Gonzo!, Divine Swine, Excuse Moi! and Gettin' Miss Piggy With It
Without flash With flash
I used these wheels to show how the colour changes with layers, and how they work as a top coat. First up, a single coat on bare nails:
You can see from these photos that one coat really doesn't offer much coverage, with the strongest being Gone Gonzo!.
|With flash - have no idea what these shadow lines are, sorry!|
Rainbow Connection with Rimmel London French Manicure in Shade 442 - French Rose
Fresh Frog of Bel Air with Barry M Nail Paint 284
Gone Gonzo! with Barry M Nail Paint 306 - Blueberry Ice Cream
Divine Swine with Revlon Nail Enamel in Shade 792 - Plum Attraction
Excuse Moi! with Chanel Le Vernis in Shade 217 - Splendeur
Gettin' Miss Piggy With It with Nails Inc Shade 408 - Tate
I think some colours work really well with the base coats, whereas others are strongest on their own but layered up, as in the next photos, which have three coats of colour:
To end this massive post, here are more photos, of the colours in their bottles.
Individual shots, left side is without flash, right is with:
Fresh Frog of Bel Air (shaky hand!)
Excuse Moi! I'm not sure why this looks so orange. It's really not, but came out the same when I tried to take another pic
Gettin' Miss Piggy With It
Phew! Congrats to those of you who managed to stay with me to the end! I felt I should put up plenty of photos as these polishes are much-talked about at the moment, and quite an investment if you buy the whole set, so hopefully I've managed to inform you! Right, time for a hot chocolate :)
Lots of Love,
