OPI Celebrates the Muppets with Nail Lacquers

March 18, 2014

Eight new hues tie in with ‘Most Wanted’ movie.

It’s been a banner year for OPI so far, with special launches with Gwen Stefani and Ford Mustang, to name a few. Now, the brand reveals it will roll out eight new limited edition nail lacquers inspired by Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted. With an all-star cast including Kermit the Frog, Constantine, Ricky Gervais, Miss Piggy, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey and the whole Muppet gang, this family comedy is directed by James Bobin and written by Bobin and Nicholas Stoller. Muppets Most Wanted opens in theaters on March 21, 2014.
 
 “The Muppets are a fun-loving, colorful cast of characters. These eight new nail lacquers were inspired by their latest adventures in Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted, which include a glamorous international stage tour – and lots of surprises,” said OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP Suzi Weiss-Fischmann.  “Fashionable Miss Piggy is represented through soft pink, peach and pearlescent hues, as well as a frosty sapphire blue – Miss Piggy’s Big Number – to match her fabulous tour gown. The remaining four shades highlight the film’s unexpected elements and include a color-shifting mauve and three sparkle-packed lacquers – including my personal favorite Gaining Mole-mentum, a gold and rose chunky shredded glitter.”
 
 
In other news, this spring, OPI takes nail color to the next level with the brand’s first-ever, pigmented top coats.  According to the company, Sheer Tints by OPI ($9 each) offers a fresh take on traditional top coats with the introduction of four new vivid hues in blue, pink, yellow and purple. An infusion of transparent color with high shine, these top coats can be worn alone, with a base coat for a playful sheer or layered over any shade to create an alternate finish for a progressive nail look.
