O.P.I to release polish line inspired by Muppets movie



I've been flip-flopping around with bare, un-pedicured toenails for awhile now, hoping one of these days I'll have free hour or two to sit still for a nice mani-pedi from the professionals. Until then, I'm pondering colors.

I had a friend years ago who quit her corporate career to be a nail tech and said she could guess with almost 100 percent accuracy which ladies would pick certain colors. Wealthy women, she said, would almost always choose pale pinks and nudes. Younger, pretty girls liked black or dark purple. Women who looked like they were waist-deep in credit card debt and were struggling to stay out of foreclosure liked bright reds and pinks. Or so she said.

Me, I tend to sway between paler colors and bright ones, like turquoise or coral. I tried yellow once and hated it. I did light lavender and loved it.


And now I can't wait for these: Muppet-inspired colors by O.P.I., to be released in November to coincide with Disney's release of The Muppets. They range from the more typical deep reds to sparkly pink ("Excuse Moi") and blue ("Gone Gonzo") and a glittery multi-colored ("Rainbow Connection"). Love O.P.I. so much.

The future line is already getting some love on O.P.I.'s Facebook page, where the announcement of the line has amassed over 2,300 "likes" and 340 excited comments. People love the Muppets! Well-played, O.P.I.
