OPI Releases Its Muppets-Inspired Nail Polish, But The Colors Are Kind Of Meh — Here's Why

OPI, oh why!?

Their latest nail polish collection was inspired by the upcoming Muppets Most Wanted movie, which is awesome and all, but the colors seem pretty random.

For example, the one called Miss Piggy's Big Number is a dark blue while the shade named I Love Applause is a soft, light pink.

And that just makes no sense!

Miss Piggy's polish should be a bright pink with lots of glitter!

And anything to do with Kermit should be a vibrant kelly green or a loud lime green or a sparkly emerald, and not this weird olive-y, pinkish color that they have for Kermit Me To Speak!

They also should've totally made a nice cerulean blue for Gonzo.

But anyway, the lacquers will be out towards the end of March and go for $9 a pop.

Check 'em all out in the gallery (below)!

And the Muppets are even cashing in on the madness!

This is SO tragic!

John Henson, Muppets puppeteer and son of Jim and Jane Henson, passed away on Friday after suffering a massive heart attack. And on Valentine’s day, of all days!

The puppeteer’s family let people know on Facebook, telling their fans:

“It is with great sadness that we confirm that John Henson, son of Jim and Jane Henson and brother to Lisa, Cheryl, Brian and Heather, died at age 48 of a sudden massive heart attack on Friday, February 14, while at home with his daughter. John served as a shareholder and board member of The Jim Henson Company. He leaves two daughters, Katrina (15) and Sydney (10) and his wife Gyongyi. A private service is being planned.”

Ugh! Just completely tragic! He was so young!

Our thoughts are with John’s family and friends!

Knowing her, she’ll show up dressed to the nines!

Or maybe she’ll even find an ensem matching her carry-all. That would not shock us one bit!
