OPI Rainbow Connection - from the Muppets Collection

We absolutely could not get the Muppets Theme out of our head when we polished our nails with this super fun nail laquer. That's appropriate since OPI Rainbow Connection is part of the Muppets Collection from OPI, and the movie will be in theaters Thanksgiving weekend.

We were instantly drawn to this nail polish, but hesitated for a second because we wondered if it was a little too '70s disco for everyday wear. We were wrong! Metallics are really in right now, and even the most conservative hockey mom could spruce up a little black dress or grey top with this amazing bottle of varnish. It's a limited edition, so don't pass it up! This polish is great for nail art and special occasions galore.

We applied a base coat and one coat of OPI Rainbow Connection.

Application Tips:
If you are used to wiping the brush against the side of the bottle and polishing each nail in three strokes, you may consider varying your technique slightly for the second coat. Don't press the brush as hard against the lip of the bottle, and you won't remove as much glitter, especially the bigger pieces. We were heavy handed with our second coat, and that worked well. Otherwise, it might take 3-4 coats to get the effect. If your nail is exposed in one spot, it's easy to dab on some more polish in that area and have it look great. Make sure you wipe the top of the bottle before you close the lid because you will definitely be disappointed if you can't open the polish again.

Top two nails: Two coats of OPI Rainbow Connection using our application method. Bottom two nails: One coat of OPI Rainbow Connection over base coat.

This is the mother of all glitter nail polishes! That also means it isn't easy to remove. Apply some remover soaked pads and allow it to stay there for a few minutes before wiping away, and that should help some.

If you buy ONE bottle of nail polish this holiday season, this is THE one to have! You'll be happier than a kindergartner that glued an entire vial of craft glitter to her nails!

Other polishes from OPI's Muppets Collection include: Animal-istic, Excuse Moi!, and Gettin' Miss Piggy With It.
