NOTD - OPI Muppets Rainbow Connection over pale gold

It's been a wee while since I last posted a NOTD, but I'm back with a good one!  This is OPI Rainbow Connection from the Muppets Christmas collection.  It's a multi-sized, multi-coloured sparkly glitter fest =)

The glitter is suspended in clear nail polish, so I used Nails Inc George Yard as a base coat - it's a pale metallic gold.

Blingtastic!  Helen from just nice things on twitter said it looks like my nails are covered in treasure!  I like this analogy!  I've not been able to stop staring at my nails for the last few days and everyone's been asking what polish I'm wearing.  

Sorry for the not so great close up on the nails there - I've been using my new iphone's camera and while it's great for many things, but I think I need to admit defeat on NOTDs

I've used just one coat of rainbow connection here and I moved the chunks about a bit with the brush to get a more even spread across the nails.  You can also build the polish up with several coats to get a full on glitter look more like as it appears in the bottle.

I can't wait to try out some others from the muppets collection.  I went off glitter polishes ages ago, but now they're back with a vengeance and I can't get enough of them!

You can buy the OPI muppets collection online here


  1. It looks absolutely gorgeous over the gold! I've got Rainbow Connection and it's such a fab addition to OPI xx

  2. This is so beautiful it really does look like treasure. I don't really buy many polishes, and OPI can be hard to get in Malta- the newer ones always- but I am so in love with this I am going to get my hands on them both ASAP!!! xxx
