HB Beauty Bar: OPI Muppets Most Wanted Swatches

Hi guys! I finally have swatches of the new OPI Muppets Most Wanted collection to show you from HB Beauty Bar. I feel like I haven't had time to swatch in forever, so it felt good to get this whole collection done. Let's get started, shall we?

This collection consists of eight polishes of varying finishes, from soft creams to bold glitters to duochromes - something to offer for everyone. I haven't seen the movie that inspired this collection, but I have to say I love the neutral colors for this season, so I'm liking these a lot!

First we have I Love Applause (fun fact: when I first picked up this polish, I thought it was called "I Love Applesauce". LOL!) It's a soft pink cream that reaches full opacity with three coats, but looks beautiful and natural with one or two (perfect for a French manicure!) The jelly formula makes it delicate and soft on the nail - and I didn't even need top coat to get that incredible shine. Shown above is three coats.

Let's Do Anything We Want! is a glitter topper filled with metallic pink and white mini and micro hex glitters, as well as sparse larger white square glitters. This glitter is so unique and pretty! It's definitely a great polish for someone who wants to keep their nails looking professional, but with a little bit of fun. Shown above is one easy coat over I Love Applause (don't they match together beautifully?).

Next we have Chillin' Like A Villain, a peachy neutral soft cream with the same formula as I Love Applause. Again, this one is definitely beautiful to wear in one or two coats if you're interested in a natural look, or you can build it up for opacity like I did in the photo above. I absolutely love this color with my skin tone! Shown above is four thin coats, no top coat necessary.

Gaining Mole-Mentum is a glitter topper filled with gold, silver, and copper metallic shards. This topper is unlike anything I have and I love that each nail looks totally different because of the various shapes of the shards! I imagine this would look stunning over black. Shown above is one coat over Chillin' Like A Villian (again, because it matched so perfectly!)

Miss Piggy's Big Number is a beautiful, eye-catching sapphire polish that I fell in love with instantly. This color is just brilliant! It does show some brush strokes, so careful application is a must. There was a slight duochrome shift in the bottle, but I didn't really notice it on my nails. Shown above is two coats.

Don't be fooled - this isn't a new textured polish, it's Muppets World Tour, a glitter topper packed with various white and silver hexes, as well as pink, blue, and gold metallic hexes as well. I can't believe how much this transformed Miss Piggy's Big Number - it really does look (and feel) like one of the Liquid Sand polishes! And I loved the matte finish, so I didn't add any top coat. This might be my favorite combination of polishes ever, I love how unique it looks. Shown above is one coat over Miss Piggy's Big Number.

Int'l Crime Caper is a sheer white with a pink duochrome shimmer. I have to admit, this isn't the type of polish I would normally reach for, but I found it kind of refreshing! It's definitely very sheer though - shown above is three coats, and I still see VNL (visible nail line.)

Kermit Me To Speak is a sheer gray-purple duochrome shimmer, quite similar to Next Stop... The Bikini Zone, but without the holographic sparkle (in fact, they looked almost exactly the same in the bottle!) This is a great alternative for those of you who loved Next Stop... The Bikini Zone but found that it was a bit too sparkly for your taste. Be careful though - this polish does show brush strokes. Shown above is one coat over OPI Taupeless Beach.

Overall, I am enjoying this collection. I love the work appropriate creams, and I'm definitely loving the unique glitters. My top picks are Chillin' Like A Villain, Miss Piggy's Big Number, and Muppets World Tour.

You can buy all of these polishes from HB Beauty Bar for $8 USD each, or as a whole collection for $60 USD. Don't forget, you can get 15% off your entire order with the code POLISHCHALLENGE at checkout!
