OPI - Sonic Bloom, Megawatt & Electric Eel

These are three polishes that can be lovely 1 coat sheers but here is 3 coats of each to give you an idea what they can build up to. No base or top on any of these.


I really liked this one a lot more than I thought I would. At one coat it is like a layer of spun gold on the nail. It is very sheer but it is prominent. This is 3 coats and I really love the ethereal glow. Definitely a keeper.

Electric Eel

I think I might like this one better at a single coat than three. While it is a very pretty green at 3 coats, at 1 coat it gives off a very subtle (for me) green glow. I did not do 1 coat swatches with these because my nails are stained all to shiz. No one wants to see that :|

Sonic Bloom

This one is fabulous. One coat is less than thrilling. Three coats, however, is beauty. Is it blue? Pink? Green? Guile? All of the above? Pin It

OPI - Sugarplum Yum

So pretty! It's a grey base which often leans quite purple with pink/peach duochrome action. This is 2 coats. Surprisingly opaque! I was expecting it to be ultra sheer. No base, no top.

OPI - Movin' Out

I originally swatched this on its lonesome. I did not love it. Now I do love it!

Indoors (apologies as some pics are blurry)

OPI - The Muppets Collection Swatches

Today was a good day!

This is a fabulous collection. Application on almost all of them was flawless. I apologize for any wonky cuticles, bits of fluff, stray glitter, ugly cleanup jobs and/or slightly longer ring finger nails *shakes fist* that you may encounter in the pics below. Get ready for overcast shitty day pictures galore!

First up is Designer De Better

This is 2 coats with no topcoat. The application was fabulous. This is a silvery champagne foil with pronounced pinky/peachy/bronzy bits in it. It reminds me of Zoya Crystal in a way.


Here we have Warm and Fozzy. Not the duochrome that many of us were hoping for, but still nice! It is a light brown jelly with green leaning yellow gold and pink particulates that make it look quite foily. This is 2 coats with no topcoat.


Here we have Animal-istic

This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It could almost be a 1 coater. I had a teensy bit of VNL so I decided to do a 2nd coat. If I had been more careful, it could have been a 1 coater for sure. This is a lovely orange leaning red. It looks like shimmery sparkly glass candy! Mmm glass candy *munch munch bleed*


Wocka Wocka!

1 coater! I did 2 for.. why did I do 2? Anyways this is a gorgeous deep vampy red. Vampy without being too dark. It has subtle shimmer and I love this polish. These pics make it look a lot brighter than it is outdoors. Truly I think it is somewhere in between the out and in pics.



This is 2 coats but it could have been 1. The consistency of this one is a bit viscous. It is a fuchsia pink jelly that is packed with microflakies that gives it good depth and bling.


Pepe's Purple Passion

This is another one where i used 2 coats but could have gotten away with 1. This one disappointed me really. It was promising. The polish is thick and I want to say.. silty? This is the only one I used topcoat on. Even with topcoat it is not amazing. Maybe it needs better lighting? It's a deep murky dirty dark red leaning purple with irregular shimmer particulates.


On to the glitters! I don't really need to say much about these individually. I layered them all because that is how I will wear them. For the most part they are all amazingly stuffed with glitter. The only difference being in FFoBA and GMPWI. We have a series of 4 coloured microglitters with medium silver hex. Getting Miss Piggy With it has the addition of red hex glitter. Excuse Moi is different, I will explain it when I get to it. All but Excuse Moi are 1 coat.

Divine Swine + OPI Can You Dig It


Gone Gonzo + Kleancolor Beach Blue


Fresh Frog of Bel Air + OPI Jade is the New Black


Gettin' Miss Piggy With It + Essie Geranium


Excuse Moi

This one is a pink jelly with rainbow glitter. It could use some topcoat, but I was too lazy at this juncture. 2 coats.


Rainbow Connection over Wet & Wild Black Creme

I am not normally down with the clown barf but I like this! Not terribly original but the formula is good and I like it damnit!.


All in all I do not regret purchasing this entire collection. It filled some gaps in my collection, the formulas are all excellent, the glitters are fabulous and I am spent. Swatching all frigging day is hard work!


Peace out Pin It
