OPI's The Muppets Collection- Divine Swine Swatches

OPI Divine Swine
I can't believe I haven't blogged in almost a month! Time flies while you are in school and readying for the dreaded MIDTERMS! it's now the conclusion of my 7th week so its time to test my knowledge.
Divine Swine- 3 coats
All while preparing for my exams, I was able to sneak away and wander into Ricky's to stock up on my lovely Lavender Dr. Bronner's Soap but something caught my eye at the counter!

The OPI Muppets Holiday Collection was available! Each polish is priced at $9.99.
I grabbed Divine Swine, a glittery metallic Magenta with touches of silver in it, then later swatched it in the evening. Application was splotchy, as glitters, metallics and shimmers go, you have to put on 3-4 coats for even coverage, which did the trick. The most painful part of this polish was the fact that it was a glitter, metallic concoction which was a pain to take the polish off. I spent 20 minutes taking this polish off my nails just due to the glitter not wanting to come off. I tried two types of removers, the first being the pre-moistened nail remover pads, the second, bottles nail polish remover with a cotton pad. I twisted my fingers, I pulled my fingers I tried just soaking my fingers in both the pm pad and cotton pad and the stuff wouldn't budge!! Only after I had to saturate the cotton and twist it around my fingers vigorously did the glitter start to come off.
With that said, I don't know if I will wear this color again, or maybe I will reserve it for my toes and just replace my polish when it starts to wear down.
