In honor of the Muppet Movie...OPI released 12 polishes known as the Muppet Collection for winter 2011. I have 6 of the colors today.  Edit: I bought the polish Rainbow Connection and have added images of it at the end of the post :)

Rainbow Connection
First up we have Designer, De Better!
This is my favorite color. It is a silver polish with flecks of copper and gold in it. This was two coats.

I liked it so much and it screamed Christmas that I decided to nail stamp over it so I used my favorite bundlemonster image plate BM20 and OPI meep-meep-meep to make candy cane nails.

Next is Warm and Fozzie. Warm and Fozzie took 3 coats, it is a duochrome brown/ gold polish that I would describe as glass flecked. It is a gorgeous color... I cannot think of a dupe for it.

Next we have my next favorite polish from the collection Excuse Moi!
This was 3 coats. This is a pink based polish with  tiny silver, green, blue, yellow, red, and pink glitter suspended in it.

Next we have meep-meep-meep
this is a red glass flecked polish. The glass flecks in this polish gives it a slight gold sheen that can been seen at certain angles.
This was 3 coats.

On top of meep-meep-meep I layered on Getting Miss Piggy with it!  This is a clear red glitter polish with larger red and silver hexagonal glitter suspended in it. 

Next we have Gone Gonzo! I layered it on top of OPI suzi says feng shui, you can see it by itself on my bottom finger. It is a clear polish with small blue glitter and large silver hexagonal glitter suspended in it. This was 2 coats.

Edit: One more addition...we have Rainbow Connection.
I came across this polish at the store the other day and I had to have it even though there are a few dupes out there. I layered this over OPI parlez vous francais. This is 2 coats.
Some of the products in this post was provided to me for review.  Please see my disclosure page for more information

Where have I been?

Tuesday, November 1, 2011 12

Hi guys!!

I have been gone for a while...why?   Well I went back to school to become an x-ray technician.  :)  

Being at school has taken a huge chunk of my time so my blog was put on the back burner...but I'm almost ready to make a comeback.  By November 11 expect posts popping up here and there and left and right and everywhere.  I have a ton of pictures and comparisons but I haven't had time to edit them.

You guys have all seen infamous cupcake nails so here are my cupcake nails:

I'm not going to put a watermark on this photo (good idea? bad idea?)  but I'll have a post coming up with more details on the colors and things I used to make these nails.

another fun thing:   Cosmopolitan Ukraine posted my nails on their website so that's fun. Sure I didn't really get credited for it but I did have a watermark on my picture so yay! Take a look here, other bloggers were featured too...but no credit given :(


and lastly:

It's November also known as Movember.  What happens in November is that men start growing crazy mustaches (mo's) throughout the month to raise funds and awareness for men's health...specifically prostate cancer. My boyfriend is participating this year and is going to grow a freaky mustache...I'm not a fan of a freaky mustache but it's for a good cause so I can't complain.  I know money is always tight with our nail polish addictions...but if have a couple of extra dollars ( even a dollar) it would be wonderful if you could donate to a great cause.  

You can donate to my boyfriend and support him here:
