Divine Swine

Another glitter polish from The Muppets Collection from OPI!
After swatching Rainbow Connection, I was slightly disappointed by the amount of bald spots after 4 coats. I have seen a lot of other polish bloggers complain about the Muppets glitters for this same reason. However, I only used 3 coats of Divine Swine in the pictures below and it was almost fully opaque. I could only see bald spots if I looked really hard for them.

Divine Swine is small purple glitter and larger silver glitter in a clear base. Again, I feel as though this polish would have been better if the base was a purple polish instead of clear. But, I still was very happy with this polish! The silver glitter catches the light very well, and you are left with a sparkly, shiny finish! As with most glitters, you are left with a slightly rough, gritty finish, but this doesn't bother me at all. I'm sure if you were to add a layer or two of top coat over top of this it would make the finish smoother.

3 coats, no top coat


Without flash, looks slightly more pink, but the polish is definitely purple in person.


(My label is different than normal OPI labels because it is a PR sample)

Removal of this polish was awful! As with most glitters, removal took forever. You can use the foil method, but I was out of tin foil so I opted for just holding saturated cotton balls on the nail until it was softened up. 

The Muppets Collection will be released November 1st 2011, and retails for about $10 CDN per polish. 

Disclosure: This polish was sent to me for review.

  1. Woah what a fabulous glitter! I'd probably layer it anyway so I wouldn't be bothered about bald patches - but it does look amazing on you!

  2. Wait this collection is suppose to be out Nov 1st? I just went to my local beauty supply store and they had the display, I guess they got it early! I got rainbow connection but I think I might want this one too!

  3. That looks lovely! Glitters will be my downfall - I always forget about that horrible removal the moment I see sparkle...
