OPI Muppets Collection – PEPE’S PURPLE PASSION
Another winner from the Muppets Collection, and this is probably the one I was most excited to swatch.
Pepe’s Purple Passion is more of a burgundy than a purple. There are deep brown tones to this, making it very autumnal. Like it’s sisters, Animal-istic and Meep-Meep-Meep, this is flecked. The difference with PPP is that the flecks are a lot lighter, rather than being just a variation of the tone of the polish. So here you get a very browny purple with hushed fuschia flecks.
PPP reminds me a lot of Merry Midnight – they both have a very similar base colour – just without the flakies. I’m interested to see them side-by-side, and to see what happens when I put a flakie topping on this one.
In some lights, this polish just looks dark, but take her out into the light and she sparkles like diamonds in a coal mine.
OPI is usually the best polish for application, but PPP was really hard to put on (and I’m sure I’ve read somebody else blog the same thing). It’s very thick, and not particularly easy to move around the nail, so this needed a lot of clean-up. Unfortunately, because of the vampyness of the colour, it didn’t want to be helpful during clean-up either! Good job she’s so fabulous!
Perfect polish for autumn, and really beautiful to look at and just watch how she dances in the light.
Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
