Last month, you’ll remember that I swatched and reviewed 4 glitter polishes from the OPI Muppets Collection.
I didn’t think that I’d have more to review before the official release of the collection, but PR was kind enough to send me more colours – this one as well as another shade!
So, today I have the pleasure to bring you OPI Warm & Fozzie, which I loved a lot more than I thought I would! 😀
Now, brown polishes don’t usually do anything for me, but this one’s really different, and photos don’t do it justice.
It’s a warm copper that at first looks ordinary. But with closer inspection, you’ll see that there are actually pinkish (or rust-coloured) micro-glitter that gives it more dimension.
Allow me to go into this in more depth.

OPI Warm & Fozzie Review
Warm & Fozzie by OPI is a warm metallic copper. In the sunlight and with the camera’s flash, the brown and the gold really come to the forefront. In natural light, if you look closely, you’ll actually see some rust-coloured or pink particles mixed in with the copper. It gives it more dimension.
This gorgeous polish really catches the light and changes its personality a bit depending on the angle of your nails. Sometimes it looks like a warm brown and other times it looks like a cool brown. And in certain lighting with my nails angled a certain way, I can almost see murky green edges. It’s on the verge of being green, but doesn’t quite go there.
Now, I said before that the polish to snatch up quickly was OPI Rainbow Connection from this collection. But if you’re not interested in chunky glitter for layering, OPI Warm & Fozzie would be my polish recommendation. This one looks way better in person!
I think this is a wonderful colour for fall – really puts me in the mood and makes me think of leaves changing colours.
This polish is tough for me to classify because it’s actually pretty complex. While it shines like a metallic, it has those little pieces that make the finish seem to be a foil. And because the colour shifts slightly, I want to call this a weak duochrome, but it seems to be there depending on the lighting. Very interesting!
The little particles lie flat on the nails, so the finish is very smooth.
Application & Formula
The formula on Warm & Fozzie by OPI was liquidy, thin, and sheer. You’ll need at least 2 coats to cover your nail, but I recommend using 3 coats because that extra coat really brings out the richness of the colour way better.
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
Although the glitters from the OPI The Muppets Collection are getting a lot of attention, don’t overlook the unique copper, OPI Warm & Fozzie! And the plus of this is that it’s easier to remove than the chunky glitters. It’s the perfect autumnal shade!
