OPI Miss Piggy's Big Number

OPI Miss Piggy's Big Number is a gleaming midnight blue. There is a very, very slight purple shift to this polish at certain angles but it's not so perceptible that I would label this a duochrome. One thing this polish does have though is some major shine! It absolutely glows on the nail and has a mirror-smooth finish, almost like a chrome polish.

I was afraid this polish might be brushstroke-y but I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it applied. The formula felt a little runny but not to the point that it was difficult to work with. I used three coats here.

I'd say this is the best blue OPI has put out since Swimsuit...Nailed It! from the original Miss Universe Collection (OLD swatch alert, by the way--proceed with caution). The silky smooth finish and the way it catches the light really make it a stunner. Throughout three days of wear, I could not take my eyes off this beautiful blue! It's just so shiny and rich!

I do wish the name were a little better though. I had a couple people ask what polish I was wearing and it was a little embarrassing to reply, "Miss Piggy's Big Number," hahaha. I'm not 100% sure why Miss Piggy's shade is blue, either. Pink is the color that instantly comes to mind with her character, but maybe the name has some significance in the movie?

Have you ever had an awkward name moments with polish? What comes to mind for me is when stranger asks what I have on my nails and the name is something suggestive, like OPI Pussy Galore. I personally love those types of names, because they fit my sense of humor, but they can create some uncomfortable situations!


  1. My collection is made up of almost all indie polishes, so most of the names are weird or make an obscure reference. "Bigger on the inside," "Ultimate Ginger" (which is actually blue), and "Totes Magotes" are my favorite oddly named polishes.

  2. I automatically thought of Swimsuit...Nailed It! right when I saw this blue. I agree, it's an odd color for Miss Piggy but it's beautiful none the less.

  3. Oooh I love Swimsuit...Nailed It! so I'll probably love this too! It's gorgeous!
