The latest – of course – is Muppets Most Wanted… the Soft Shades collection for 2014. I find the collection to be very eclectic- I don’t see a duochrome or royal blue as typical OPI Soft Shades – and there’s nothing soft about shards of glitter. The only two polishes in the whole collection that make me think “soft” are I Love Applause and Int’l Crime Caper.
Kermit Me to Speak is described as a rosy mauve – and that’s what initially drew me to the polish. How can you go wrong? When I started seeing swatches, I was more interested – a gold duochrome? Count me in….
In reality, it took me a while to accept the rosy mauve, but it’s there. Indoors, the gold leans green and the mauve leans purple. I really appreciate that it’s lighter than some recent duo/multi chromes (ex: Peace & Love & OPI). I’ve seen some talk about it being similar to Next Stop…Bikini Zone. While I don’t own both, I’d call them polish cousins.
The application get’s a big thumbs up from me. It dries really quick – like a chrome – and keeps it’s shiny finish. I used two coats and I was squared away. Horray!
So it’s a winner in my book – but whoever decided this would be Kermit’s namesake polish must’ve been on drugs. Kermit should be a green Liquid Sand or something more like Just Spotted the Lizard. I totally see this as a Miss Piggy polish.
