Warm and Fozzie Wishes From OPI!

Sending Warm and Fozzie Wishes From OPI!

This holiday season, OPI pays homage to America’s favorite Muppet friends as they hit the big screen in Disney’s The Muppets.  With an all-star cast including Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the entire Muppet crew, the family comedy opens in theaters nationwide on November 23, 2011.

Inspired by the film’s namesake lively and colorful characters, OPI launches twelve limited-edition Nail Lacquers for Holiday 2011. “OPI is so excited to work with Disney to celebrate this long-awaited movie release,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “Not only do The Muppets characters inspire fun, bright and joyful colors, the fashionable Miss Piggy lends her name to three high-shine pink-based hues, ranging from bold red flecked with silver to a multi-dimensional strawberry shade.”

This line features six shimmery reds and neutrals, as well as six glitter-packed shades, including:

Animal-istic
This wild bright red cannot be tamed!

Meep-Meep-Meep
Missing out on this fuchsia would make you weep, weep, weep!

Wocka Wocka!
The popular deep berry makes everything fun and merry!

Pepe’s Purple Passion
This deep, decadent shade is the best purple ever, okay!

Designer, de Better!
And this light metallic bronze is ready for the runway.
Warm & Fozzie
A feel-good shade of metallic copper.

Rainbow Connection
The rainbow glitter of your dreams.

Excuse Moi!
Ahem! This pink glitter has something to say!

Gone Gonzo!
The aqua-blue glitter is taking over the world!

Fresh Frog of Bel Air
A glitter that prefers the greener things in life.

Divine Swine
The finest, most fabulous magenta glitter ever.

Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It!
Red glittery fun for everyone!

Lacquer packed with micas and sparkle gives a 3-dimensional textured look that makes nails look like jewelry. With shades ranging from textured glitters in rainbow, red, green and blue to softer shimmers in copper and bronze metallic hues, these twelve colors provide the perfect accessory for the holiday season.

As with all OPI nail lacquers, these shades inspired by Disney’s The Muppets contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.

This limited edition promotion will be available beginning November 2011 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for  $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

ABOUT THE MOVIE

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.

 

 

Trippy Hippy Dippy

I wanted to do a fall colors design that was unusual today. So I did! :D Its a bunch of earth colors and its meant to be a little scattered and abstract….

I started with OPI Nail Envy, then two coats of French Quarter For Your Thoughts with Alpine Snow sponged over it. I then used Road House Blues, Alpine Snow, Uh Oh Roll Down The Window, and Golden Rules for the designs. I sponged some Golden rules and as it got tacky I pushed some lines into it with a clear piece of plastic for some texture. It’s topped with Seche Vite.

 

Keep the nominations for the Palette Awards coming! I’ve already gotten to check out some truly lovely blogs and I’d love to see more! No blog is excluded from this and the more the merrier! Nominate your favorites, your own, your friends’, or ones you’ve stumbled on passing through!

It’s My Blogiversary And I’ll Paint If I Want To!

Hey all! Thank you for the support in the past year! I can’t believe I’m still around blogging and doing nail art! Even more, I can’t believe a year has gone by! This is a tad long post but stick to it, it’s worth it! Thank you thank you thank you for everything!

I wanted to come up with a revolutionary technique today for my blogiversary for nail art… but I failed. I found LOTS of info about creating a permanent oil slick on construction or photo paper with… you’ll never guess…. clear nail polish! I hoped against all hope that I could get it to work on my nails. Well, I did, but by the time that the clear actually dries, the oil slick effect completely disappears. It’s such a shame because it’s so pronounced on the paper. So, I decided to take the colors on the paper and just do a sponge design. (for those who want to recreate the look on paper, just water marble with a drop of clear and paper instead of your hand. let it dry, and voila!)

I assure you, one day, I WILL create a look that is easy to recreate that perfectly replicates an oil slick. For this I started with OPI Nail Envy, two coats of Black Onyx, the failed Sally Hansen Clear, then I sponged on loads of colors: Russian Navy, Unripened, I Only Drink Champagne, Golden Rules, Call My Cell-ery, INK, Yodel Me On My Cell, Midnight In Moscow, and a top coat of Seche Vite.

Some of the products in this post were sent to me for consideration and review by the manufacturer. For further information, please see my disclosure statement. 

 

Now here’s the fun part, sweetheart. (Twister movie reference, I couldn’t resist!) We’re going to do something called the Paper Palette Awards!

You may have heard of Paper Plate awards, and if not I’ll tell you about them. Essentially, after a group/acting troupe/sports team etc has worked together for a while and at the end of a season, each person is awarded with something called a paper plate award, which has a nice quirky thing about them on it…. sort of like a yearbook… “most likely to be famous”, “most innovative” etc. Well, we deal with painting with polish so they’re the Palette Awards instead and they’ll be about his/her blog! Here’s what you need to do:

Nominate as many blogs as you like, including your own if you choose. I’ll be taking nominations until September 1st, 2011. Then, I’ll go through all of them and give them a Palette Award. The point here is to find something that each blog is good at! Here’s the twist, I might not know all of the blogs so if you have something to say to help me, leave it in the comment box too! :)

This is a great way for me  to learn about new blogs, find established blogs and meet new friends and share them with all of you! Here’s the nice part, since it’s not a prize that is restricted to the US, EVERYONE can participate! You don’t have to have a blog to nominate and you don’t have to nominate yourself to get an award because I might just nominate you anyway! So get started!!! :D
