OPI: Pepe's Purple Passion: (Muppets Collection)

Hi everyone! Can you believe we're 12 days away from Christmas Eve? Where did the time go!? Honestly, this year flew by for me! Insane!! I still have not completed my Christmas shopping. Ugh!

Today I have another color from the Muppets collection to share with you. This one is called Pepe's Purple Passion and it's not really purple at all! To me this reads way more burgundy/maroon/plum than purple and it's packed with pretty red shimmer flecks. It's stunning! The shimmer absolutely makes this one for me. I am getting more into shimmer these days. Without the shimmer this color is basic but the red glass like flecks really make it fun to me.

The formula was a touch thicker than normal but not that difficult to work with. I did find that without a top coat this color lacked shine so be sure to top this one off.  I used two coats for the opacity shown and I am happy with the results. 

So, who is Pepe? Good question! I really love the Muppets but I guess I am not as big a fan as I thought I was because I really did not have a clue who Pepe was. Upon looking him up I have to say that I still have no clue who he is!  So let's learn together:

Apparently Pepe is a prawn, not a shrimp, a prawn. He does not like being called a shrimp so get it right! He is of Spanish descent and speaks with an accent. You can learn more about Pepe here. To be honest, he kind of scares me ;-) He's creepy but his polish is pretty so he gets a pass.

So hit or miss for you? I really like it. I think it's completely work appropriate too without being boring!
