Beauty Review: OPI Nail Lacquer in Gone Gonzo!

I am a sucker for a bit of glitter and a huge fan of the Muppets. So when OPI announced they were bringing out a Muppets collection to coincide with the new movie, I was stupidly excited. The collection is full of utterly gorgeous polishes, including loads of glittery ones I have my eye on - there'll be a lot of eBay scouring to find them! - but the one I really fell for was Gone Gonzo!, a gorgeous aqua-blue glitter with larger silver hex glitter mixed in.

I've used OPI glitter polishes before but this one was a bit of a surprise as it's very sheer and can look a bit patchy. The pictures below used three coats and I'm still not 100 per cent happy with the coverage as in some areas it looks quite thin. That said, I have a feeling that would make it great as a layering polish - I've already got plans for pairing it with a lovely Andrea Fulerton turquoise, but more on that another time. Points in its favour are that it does endure well - most of the nails were still holding up almost a week later - and it got loads of compliments!

As always, base coat is Revlon Post Trauma Nail Treatment (I will be blogging about this soon as it's so great) and top coat is Seche Vite.

Overall, this is a very striking polish but not the best consistency, and so I'd question paying  full price for it - unfortunately the Muppets mini collection didn't include the glitters, which surprised me as I thought they would be overwhelmingly the most popular. But if you do fancy picking up a bottle, eBay is probably your best bet as the line is sadly now discontinued...
