The #Muppets OPI Holiday Nail Polishes

 

 

A few months ago I posted about the new Muppets Nail Polish Collection from OPI. I’ve since ordered some nail polishes myself and I love them!

I wasn’t sure what to get, so I got this great OPI Muppets Mini Collection, featuring Wocka Wocka, Excuse Moi, Designer de Better and Warm and Fozzie.

Warm and Fozzie has been my absolute favorite through fall.  I couldn’t wait to see what the collection had for the upcoming holidays!

The Muppets Fresh Frog of Belair OPI Nail Polish is glittery and green! So pretty!

The Muppets Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It OPI Nail Polish is sparkly red and perfect for Christmas!

The Rainbow Connection OPI Nail Polish is fun and bright! You will love this look!

If you have seen The Muppets movie, you know that it’s all about getting the gang back together!

In the upcoming movie Disney’s The Muppets, Kermit the Frog sets out on a cross-country, around-the-world drive in hopes of getting the Muppets back together one more time. In celebration of the upcoming theatrical release of the movie, which opened nationwide on November 23, 2011, Alamo Rent A Car has launched the Alamo® Get The Gang Back Together Sweepstakes.

One lucky winner will receive $5,000 cash towards a dream vacation to reunite with his or her own group of friends.

In the movie, one of the film’s stars, Amy Adams, uses an Alamo-branded map of Los Angeles to find her way around the city!  The Muppets also star in an Alamo television commercial promoting both the upcoming film and the Alamo Get The Gang Back Together Sweepstakes.

Fun Facts about The #Muppets Movie!

 

 

Have you gone to see The Muppets movie yet? If you haven’t, stop reading this and just go see it. You can come back to the post later!

Don’t worry, Fozzie, Miss Piggy and Kermit will wait too!

Okay, so you’re back! Make sure to read all of my Muppets coverage, including interviews with the cast and crew! Also, check out my review of The Muppets movie!

Here are some of my favorite Fun Facts about The Muppets Movie!

 

LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN — Disney’s  “The Muppets” is the 7th feature film featuring the Muppets.

 

 

PRETTY PIG — A total of 12 different costumes were made for Miss Piggy—more costume changes than any other actor in the film. 

 

AT THE HELM — Director James Bobin makes his film directorial debut. Bobin co-created HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords,” which he wrote, directed and executive produced. 

 

 

CUE THE MUSIC — Bret McKenzie of “Flight of the Conchords” wrote and produced three original songs and served as music supervisor for the film.

  • McKenzie fills some big shoes: “The Muppet Movie” was nominated for two Oscars®: Best Music, Original Song (“Rainbow Connection”) and Best Music, Original Sound Score.


MINI ME — Muppet versions of Gary/Jason Segel and director James Bobin were created.

 

STRUMMING THE SAME STRINGS — Kermit uses the banjo from 1979’s “The Muppet Movie” during the “Rainbow Connection” performance in Disney’s “The Muppets.”

    • The staging of the scene features Kermit on a replica of the log where he was first found strumming his banjo in the very first Muppet movie. Miss Piggy shows up in a rowboat very much like the one the late Dom DeLuise used when he joined Kermit in their sweet duet. 

 

SEEING GREEN – Disney’s  “The Muppets” was a green set (in more ways than one) with an environmental steward who made sure the proper recycling receptacles were utilized on set. All of paper products were made from recycled materials and were compostable. The production also provided each crew member with aluminum refillable water bottles to cut down on the use of plastic bottles and paper cups. Water was readily available on set for cast and crew to fill their personal water bottles.

 

HIGH FASHION — Miss Piggy had shoes made for her by Christian Louboutin and a dress by Zac Posen, which she wears in the finale scene.

Fun for the Whole Family: The Muppets Movie!

 

 

You may have heard that there is this little movie called The Muppets, which is in theaters today!

While I am too young to have grown up watching The Muppet Show, I did grow up watching Muppet Babies {who remembers that show?} and many of The Muppets movies.

My husband and I bought The Muppet Show when it came out on DVD a few years ago and loved watching it.

With so many great memories of The Muppets being around for my childhood, I wanted to make sure that Hayden was exposed to The Muppets. There hasn’t been a Muppets movie in the last 12 years. We showed him the movies and I am so excited that Disney has brought back The Muppets to the big screen so another generation can experience it.




Newcomer Muppet Walter {who will easily steal your heart} lives in Small Town, USA with his human brother Gary {Jason Segel}. Also living in Small Town, USA is Gary’s girlfriend Mary {Amy Adams}.

For Gary and Mary’s 10th anniversary, they decide to visit Los Angeles. Walter, who is The Muppets #1 fan is invited along on the trip to check out The Muppets Studios.

Unfortunately, The Muppets Studio is run down and neglected. While touring the studio, Walter overhears Tex Richman, an evil oil man plotting to buy Muppets Studio. Instead of making it a Muppet Museum, like he has told others, he plans to tear it down and drill for oil.

Walter can’t let this happen and he goes on a search with Gary and Mary to find Kermit. After telling Kermit what Tex Richman is up to, Kermit decides that the best way to save the studio is to get the gang back together for a telethon to raise $10 million dollars so they can buy the rights to the Studio back.

Just like it’s been years since The Muppets have been on screen for us, it’s been years since The Muppets have been together. Kermit, Walter, Gary and Mary go on a journey around the world to pick each Muppet up.

Once they get all of The Muppets back together again, they face another obstacle. The Muppets just aren’t popular anymore. The Muppets are good, wholesome fun {with some adult humor, of course!} and today’s society is more concerned with shows like “Punch Teacher”.  With a stroke of luck though, a TV network is able to air The Muppets telethon so they can raise their $10 million to save Muppets Studio. With some fun musical numbers and hard work, The Muppets work together to get the show ready.

While The Muppets are working hard to get ready for the show, Mary is wanting to spend time with Gary. Gary is torn between his girlfriend of 10 years and his brother Walter, who’s always been by his side. This leads to a very important question and one of my favorite musical numbers of the movie, Man or Muppet?

What happens next? Well, more musical numbers, celebrity cameos, laughs and family fun! But don’t take my word on it! Like the two grumpy old guys who can’t seem to get away from The Muppets, Statler & Waldorf say: “If you’re going to see The Muppets, you’ve got to see them in the theater! You don’t want to let them into your home!”.

The great thing about The Muppets movie is that it brings the family together. There are some scenes in the movie that showed families of all generations watching The Muppets on screen together. That was what was happening in the theater. Children are laughing at the antics of The Muppets and parents are laughing at the adult humor and pop culture references. The whole theater was laughing and grinning together.

While you are celebrating Thanksgiving, make time to go see The Muppets together in theaters!
