OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It and Essie Clambake

Instead of just straight-up glitter I decided to layer this one with a jelly and see how it turned out.  

Success!  I love how this looks.  I used Essie Clambake and OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It (the second not-so-veiled 90s Will Smith reference in the collection...I don't get it).  This look is really easy to achieve.  I did one coat of Clambake, let it dry, did two coats of Miss Piggy, and then one more coat of Clambake.  The result is that the glitter looks like it's floating or suspended in the jelly polish.  The glitter particles are like little embers burning in a river of lava or something.  So pretty.

Gettin' Miss Piggy With It is the red version of Fresh Frog of Bel Air.  It's small, red, round glitter and red and silver hexagonal glitter suspended in a clear base.  I know that opacity can be achieved at three or four coats.  But I wanted to try something different with this one.  The formula on the OPI is really good; easy to manipulate with a great dry time.  If you love red or shiny things, I'd recommend Miss Piggy to you.  This glitter really added something special to Clambake.  I can't wait to use the other Muppets glitters for similar manicures.  

See how it glows?  So pretty!

That's all for today.  Has anyone picked up Miss Piggy?  Anyone planning to get their paws on it for the holidays?  I'm sure you could do some really fun things with it...and it's hard to go wrong with sparkle ;)
