OPI Touring America Launch (and Muppets sneak peek!) *pic heavy*

Hey everyone! If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I am meant to be on a hiatus in the lead up to my wedding. However, I have sooooooo much stuff to post, I just couldn't stay away! So, what I have decided to do is try and get through my huge backlog of reviews and swatches this weekend, and then schedule posts for the next three weeks until I get married! It is a big task, but I just have so much stuff I need to show you and it just can't wait until after the wedding!

For this post, I have some pic spam from the OPI Touring America launch party which was held at the gorgeous Woollahra Post Office last night. I was ridiculously excited about this event, firstly because of the Touring America collection, but also becuase I was hoping to catch a glimpse of the Muppets holiday collection! The nail polish fairies must have been listening, because they had a full Muppets display and I was lucky enough to even have a mani done with one of the glitters, Rainbow Connection!

Rainbow Connection is a crazy, super blingy multi-coloured glitter polish. There's silver, green, pink, orange, blue and yellow regular and hex glitter all jam packed into a clear base. It is plain and simple awesome. I will definitely be getting a bottle (or two!) of this when it is released and I can't wait to try the other glitters in the collection as well (Gone Gonzo... drool!)

And now for the pics of the products featured at the Touring America launch event!

And finally, the only photo of the night of me! The downside of taking all my own photos is that I'm never in any! I got this sneaky polaroid taken with one of the "cowboys" at the launch party! ha!

I was lucky enough to get a goodie bag with some samples of the Touring, Nice Stems and Beiber collections so I will definitely be posting those in the coming weeks!

  3. Amazing! OMG I so can't wait for the Muppets Collex! And girl, how cute are you!!? <3

    Good luck with your wedding too!

  4. Thanks lovely!

    I freakin lost it when I saw muppets last night. But I had to stay all calm and reserved and just nod and smile. When what I really wanted to do was sweep the whole stand into my bag and run out of there shrieking with joy! lol

  5. i see a lot of things i like!!!!

  6. So exciting so much to look forward too!

  7. Wow! That looks like one awesome party! Can't wait to see your swatches :D

  8. they really nailed it with the muppets collection because i want them all!! who can resist such beautiful glitters! Rainbow Connection looks so festive in ur nails! loove it! 

  9. Can't wait to see all that in detail!!

  10. OMG they look so good!!!

  11. can't believe you have one of the muppets polishes!!!

  12. I wasn't so impressed with polishes at the first half of this year....the second half is REALLY calling me!  AHH, my husband will not be happy...  lol!  But my nails will be lovely!

  13. wow this is awesome! now i love rainbow connection even more hehe cant wait to get my hands on them

    shel xx

  14. ok, your mani is easily the most awesome thing i have seen in ages! gimme gimme!!

  15. Awesome post! Few questions:

    How does Rainbow in the Sky-lie compare to Rainbow Connection? 

    Are they similar to Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday?


  16. From what I can remember, the Nicole by OPI one has darker glitter in it, where as rainbow connection is really bright silver and ligther coloured glitter pieces.

    I will have to look at Happy Birthday tonight, but again, I think the colour of the glitter in HB is a lot darker and less silvery than Rainbow Connection.

  17. Tout ca me parait pas mal du tout  surtout  les crème OPI ^^

  18. Funny how Touring America is just starting to launch now to some beauty supply stores in the states, while we have had the Stems collection out since late June - early July. But then that fits with your summer starting which stems is certainly a summer collection.

  19. Awesome! Thanks for this great post! I really enjoyed looking at the Muppets collection! looking forward to it!


Thanks for your comments! I appreciate them and will try and respond as quickly as I can! :D
