NOTD: Fozzie Leopard

I was very restrained and only ordered two polishes from the OPI Muppets collection, despite being a glitter and Muppets freak. One was Rainbow Connection, which we have seen, and the other was Warm and Fozzie, which is not the kind of polish I usually go for (glitters or dusty cremes), but which intrigued me. The dark burnished gold is a polish I thought would be useful for my Asian outfits (especially on my toes when wearing gold strappy sandals - possibly the only occasions now when gold strappy kitten heels get an outing are at Asian functions?) I find most metallic polishes yawnsville so the complex mix of shades that makes up Warm and Fozzie piqued my interest.

It is a lovely polish, and the red and green sparkles in the burnished gold shade make it quite fascinating up close. That said, on its own, I'm not sure it suits me or is quite my thing.

I said on its own. Because when I transformed into into a leopard manicure (my first major foray into nail art post-Pistachio Burfi nails) I fell totally in love. This makes for such a cool leopard mani - gold leopard's just about as trashy as you can get and it's brilliant. First, I dotted Warm and Fozzie with a caramel coloured creme Mavala polish:

And then used a marker to draw on the black "u" shaped markings, topping off with Seche Vite:

And I said just about because the red tones in this polish have given me an idea for another nail art experiment: Warm and Fozzie is the perfect base for a TIGER print manicure.

While your minds boggle at the idea, let me leave you with my favourite Muppets song (which for the longest time I thought was  actually "Phenomenon," and which I thought was rather profound):
