OPI keeps on coming up with the cross-brand continuance. Their Holiday 2011 collection will be called, The Muppets! Yes, really! The Muppets! Obviously in conjunction with the release of the upcoming film called, well, The Muppets!
The collection will feature 12 polishes, 6 of them glitters, and will sport three different displays instead of the typical single display. The polish names are:
Pepe’s Purple Paassion
Warm & Fozzie
Fresh Frog of Bel Air
Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It!
Miss Piggy, everyone's favourite over-confident sow with anger management issues gets her very own display and there's a set of minis for stocking stuffing or the just plain indecisive:
It's hard for me to gauge the colours from these photos, as they aren't the highest of quality but at least there doesn't seem to be a crackle/shatter in the bunch. For me, that's a plus. As far as brand recognition goes, this one's a slam dunk. Jim Henson's Muppets and Sesame Street have been part of North American Pop Culture since 1969 and it just keeps going. There's a lot of generations whose money OPI can attract since Sesame Street has been on the air for 42 years and is still running and who on earth didn't love The Muppet Show? I'm going to leave you one of the clips from the Muppet Show that for some reason, I never forgot about, even though I hadn't seen it until I looked for it on Youtube. Here's awesome EGOT winner Rita Moreno singing Fever with backup from Animal!
