Spotted, Hauled...a few & Swatched - OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection Glitters!

**all items purchased by me

I've got a Spotted, Hauled & Swatched post to share today!  I was super excited to see the press release for the OPI Muppets Most Wanted collection a few weeks back.  This is this year's Soft Shades collection as well as a movie tie-in.  Just over a week ago the local beauty supply store got them in!  Since I bought the shades I wanted, I've been stalking Ulta so I could get a picture of the display (I'm not about to take a picture of the display at the beauty supply since it's sitting on the same counter as the register) and I spotted it today.  The Muppets collection consists of 8 shades total, 3 of which are glitters, 2 are cremes, 1 bright color, 1 that looks duochrome and 1 that looks like it might be a layering shade.  I'm sure you're not surprised that I bought all the glitters first.

And the absolutely necessary super pretty glitter swatches:
Muppets World Tour, Let's Do Anything We Want!, Gaining Mole-Mentum
All approximately 2 coats each with Gaining Mole-Mentum and Let's Do Anything We Want! needing just a tiny bit of coaxing for even glitter disbursement

~Muppets World Tour dries down to a gritty glitter feel, similar to Zoya's PixieDust polishes, but topcoat (especially a thick one like Gelous) would negate that.  It has matte white and metallic gold making up the "textured" portion and also has pink, blue and gold hex glitters to add extra interest.  In the interest of seeing how opaque it is on it's own (not over a creamy white nail wheel) I popped some on my toe nail.  It's definitely sheer, but if you have a shorter free edge, 3 coats might disguise it enough.
~Let's Do Anything We Want! is made up of small metallic light pink glitters with matte white glitters in both large and tiny squares and and tiny glitters.  The tiny squares are so small that your eye almost misses the fact that they are not the traditional hex-type shape of most glitters.  The larger squares came out of the bottle easily for the swatch, but if it's been sitting a while then a good mixing/setting upside down for a few minutes might be helpful.
~Gaining Mole-Mentum is made up of silver, gold and pink multi-sized shredded metallic glitter.  It lays fairly flat, but the second day this was on my nails it seemed like the clear base over some of the shreds peeled off so I did end up adding a coat of Gelous.  If you wanted, you could probably build this up to fully cover your nail, but I don't care for the way it looks (I built up the tip of my nail).

I love how unique all of the glitters are!  But I am undecided on if I'll get any of the others.  Chillin' Like A Villain would be the next one I would consider getting, with I Love Applause probably the least likely to get since it's such a basic, easily dupe-able pink creme.  Once I see swatches and reviews I'll make my choice.

OPI has another collection - Spotlight On Glitter - coming up soon, and it's nothing but glitters.  From initial pictures I've seen online I feel like some of them have been seen already, but I can't wait to see the collection in person nonetheless so I know if I need them or not (and which ones look like dupes to ones I already have).   I read it's supposed to debut in March but have yet to see anything of them.

Are you planning on getting any of the new Muppet polishes?  Do you like the more "indie" look of the glitters in the collection?  Are you a glitter magnet or do you prefer softer, creamier shades of polish?
