OPI Rainbow Connection is the polish that I was most excited to see in person from the OPI The Muppets Collection for Holiday 2011. It was also the one I predicted that will be the first to sell out.
Now that I’ve worn it, I can firmly say that I still stand by that prediction. So when it’s released in stores on November 1st, try to snatch up Rainbow Connection before it’s too late.
With all the hype surrounding the new and old versions of Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday, I already anticipated questions regarding if this is a dupe or not.
Further down the post, I will address this issue in greater detail, as well as the polish’s opacity and layering capabilities. I’ve also included swatches of my layering experiments.

OPI Rainbow Connection Review
Rainbow Connection by OPI is exactly what it sounds like – rainbow glitter! In a clear base, you get 3 different sized metallic hexagonal glitter in silver, green, yellow, blue, orange, and pink.
I don’t like clowns, but this is clown vomit, and I like that! 😀
(No hard feelings, Bozo and Krusty. And especially no hard feelings to Stephen King’s It…*shivers* Creeped me out when I watched that movie as a young child. No, I do not want a balloon! Go away!)
Finish & Grittiness
This is a chunky glitter polish that looks like you went buck wild in the arts and crafts room! 😀 I usually don’t wear glitters like this, but I love this one because it’s so festive and it screams parrrtaaaayyy!
Surprisingly, even though there are lots of large chunks, the finish on your nails is much smoother than you’d expect. It’s not sharp and rough. Of course it’s not as smooth as butter like a creme polish, but it’s nowhere as scratchy as your typical glitter polish.
Using a thick top coat will help smooth it out even more. But if you want it to be absolutely smooth like a creme polish, you’re better off using a cheaper clear top coat and then putting on a thicker layer of a good top coat after that. Since I was fine with the finish after one coat of top coat, I didn’t bother putting on a second.
Also important to note is that I didn’t have any problems with the large hexagons curling up. I was able to get all the glitter to lie flat on my nail.
Applying Rainbow Connection is different than applying a regular polish. You can’t just use 3 long strokes to cover your nail. After painting your nails normally, you’ll have to move some of the glitter around with the brush (especially the larger hexagons) for even distribution.
Wait a while in between each coat to ensure that it’s dry. If you don’t, you’ll get bad patchiness. But if you wait, the coverage will be better. And even if there are small bald spots, you can dab a little polish on to fill it with glitter.
As expected, OPI Rainbow Connection has a thicker consistency, but it’s not unmanageable. I can see, though, that over time, this polish will thicken and you’ll need to use lacquer thinner to get the consistency back.
This polish dries very fast. After painting my left hand and waiting just a few minutes, it was dry enough to paint a second coat.
The beauty of glitter polishes is that you can layer them over lacquer you already own to completely transform them or make them more fun and festive.
And the great thing about Rainbow Connection by OPI is that it contains multi-coloured glitter so you can pretty much layer this over any hue your heart desires.
My heart desires a lot, so I had to try it over 5 different colours. It looks wicked over black, but I’m loving it over a vivid blue the best.
1 Coat of OPI Rainbow Connection Layered Over Each
Which layering combination is your favourite?
Hmm…green polish is my favourite to wear, but I guess I was too excited to see what Rainbow Connection looked like over other colours that I forgot to try a green! *Gasp* What’s happening to me? Am I sick? 😛
I plan to wear Rainbow Connection pretty soon, so for a full manicure, I’m going to put it over a green polish and then I’ll most likely blog about it and show you what it looks like.
Edit: As promised, I wore OPI Rainbow Connection over a green, BB Couture Frontier Woman. I still like it the best over China Glaze Frostbite (swatched above).
In my first bunch of swatches near the top, I showed you what it looks like on its own, with 3 coats to cover up most of the nail. You can see that there are still some areas that are patchy. If you’re more careful with your application or if you use another coat, I’m pretty sure you can get complete coverage.
And just in case you wanted to see what only 1 coat looks like on a bare nail, I tried that, too. (Yep, the tip of my nail is stained yellow from a pesky polish. Hope you don’t mind. I wanted to show you this on my actual nail and not on a nail wheel because sometimes opacity is hard to tell on a nail wheel…at least I think so.)
Is This a Dupe for Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday?
I don’t own any Deborah Lippmann polishes (although Across the Universe is on its way to me). However, after looking at Scrangie’s Happy Birthday swatches of the old and new Deborah Lippmann versions, I’d say that the overall look is very similar to OPI Rainbow Connection, but it isn’t a dupe.
The most obvious differences:
- Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday has square glitter (in the old version) & red glitter
- OPI Rainbow Connection doesn’t have any square glitter or red glitter
Oh yeah, and there’s a significant price-tag difference, too:
- Deborah Lippmann is about $18 CAD
- OPI is $9.95 CAD
Deborah Lippmann has a fancy square bottle, and OPI is classic and round.
I’d go for the OPI. And when this is released in stores in November, I’m planning on picking up a back-up bottle.
Edit: Other OPI Rainbow Connection Dupes
I acquired 2 polishes that look very similar to OPI Rainbow Connection. Please see my comparison post for details.
As beautiful as this polish is, I still need to remind you that because this is chock full of chunky glitter, it’s harder to remove than, say, a creme or shimmer polish.
There are a few ways to make it easier on yourself:
Use an Acetone Polish Remover
I’d recommend using acetone remover because it’s more heavy duty than non-acetone, but I realize that some people are trying to stay away from that chemical, so make your own decision. Some say that pure acetone works best, but I haven’t tried it. The regular acetone remover is strong enough for me and I’m wary of using pure acetone.
The Top Coat Method
Use a cheap clear non-fast-drying top coat and paint the nail you want to remove polish from. It will soften up the glitter a little bit if you leave it on for a bit. Don’t wait for the top coat to dry (that’ll defeat the purpose). Then use your polish remover on a cotton ball/pad and remove the polish as usual. Repeat these steps for each of your nails.
The Foil Method
Soak a cotton ball with your nail-polish remover. Place it on top of your nail and then wrap tin foil around your finger to hold it in place. Wait about 10-15 minutes before removing the foil. Then remove your polish as usual.
Hmm…this was a longer post than I thought it would be! Hope you liked the swatches, review, and tips! 😀
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
OPI Rainbow Connection is a true beauty that’s really fun to wear. I prefer layering this rather than wearing it solo. 🙂 I also think this would make a great New Year’s Eve manicure.
Oh, if you didn’t already see the OPI press release on the entire OPI The Muppets Collection, please click here for more information and promo pictures.
Edit: Although I wasn’t born when it came out, I think The Muppets’ The Rainbow Connection song will bring back a lot of good memories for some people, so I’ve included the YouTube link above. 🙂 Enjoy!
Do you like heavy glitter polishes like OPI Rainbow Connection? Do you have any additional tips/tricks for glitter-polish removal? Are there special occasions that you like to wear glitter polish to or do you wear it whenever you feel like it?
Edit: Just found out today (Monday October 3rd, 2011) that OPI tweeted this blog post to their followers! It totally made my day. Check out the little screenshot I took of it! 😀
Wow! Mary, thank you so much for the in depth review on this one. I remember the mad scramble last year for ChG’s glitter bomb, Party Hearty, so I suspect you’re right in that this will be the holiday hit – it can jazz up any polish, as you’ve shown here! 😀 I’m definitely going to be nabbing a bottle of this.
PS, I love that you referenced It. I *hate* clowns too 😛 They’re creepy!
Nicole recently posted: Focus On Duochrome: Sinful Colors Let Me Go
You’re very welcome! 😀 I was so excited to try this one right away. Hope you’re able to get a bottle, too! 🙂 It’s so fun to wear!
Yeah, everyone went nuts over China Glaze’s Party Hearty – it was so awesome that I bought more than one back-up!
P.S. Hehe, glad you liked the It reference. I haven’t thought of that movie in a while (thank goodness).
Ohmigosh! This glitterbomb is now #1 on the Lemming Parade!!! I love the swatches you did over other colors; I think it’ll look awesome over Swimsuit, Nailed It. As much as I dislike fall/winter I cannot wait for November and the Rainbow Connection :).
Hehe, I think this colour is rightfully going on a lot o people’s list. OPI did an amazing job on this one! 🙂
Yes, I agree that it would look great over OPI Swimsuit…Nailed It! I should’ve tried swatching it over that…Haha, there are too many layering possibilities! 😀
IT?!! Yes, shivers. I give curbs with drainage holes a wide berth and I don’t look at them!!!
Definitely glitter barf. LOL On your advise, I’m grabbing this one first. And, I think it will be my new NEW YEAR’S EVE mani.
Kimberly recently posted: Dollar Tree Haul; Hold The Christmas!
Hahaha…I’m sorry that the movie also creeped you out. Geez…I have no idea why I was watching that. I think I was 7 years old or so. It’s definitely not appropriate for kids that age!
Oh yeah – perfect New Year’s Eve manicure! Do you think you’re going to wear it solo or layered over something else?
Arrrrgh! I can’t wait ’til these come out in stores. I’ve been considering going to my local Ulta and begging them to let me pre-pay for all the Muppets glitters. And since ‘Rainbow Connection’ is one of my favorite songs in the entire world, I’m DYING to get this color. : D
Aren recently posted: Can You Dig It?
Maybe you can ask them to notify you once it comes in. Not sure if they would do it, but it’s worth asking. If they won’t let you pre-pay, then they may just notify you. I really hope you can get this, especially since you’re a big fan!
wow!! its such a lovely glittery shade. lovely review 🙂
preciouspearl recently posted: Too Faced – Eye Shadow Insurance Policy Palette
Glad you appreciated my review. 🙂 Do you think you’ll be picking this or any of the other colours from the OPI The Muppets Collection in November?
I’m anxiously awaiting this collection -BIG TIME!
You know, I tend to like glitters on others far more than on myself… And yet I still buy them 🙂
I like how you layered it over other colours on the nailwheel. My favourite would be the NLTM and the purple 🙂
OPI always save some of the best collections for the holidays! 😀 Weee! I’m going to have to see what the non-glitters look like in person. Right now, though, I’m enjoying the bling. Haven’t worn any in a while, so it’s a nice change of pace. 🙂
It was fun layering it over other colours. Too bad I don’t have a computerized closet (like in Clueless), but instead of picking out my outfit, it could help me with layering combinations! 😛
Wonderful glitter, I can never get enough. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!
Tera recently posted: A-Taupe The Space Needle
What are your favourite glitter polishes? And what do you think would look best layered under Rainbow Connection?
OH MY GOSH!! I want this soooooooo much more now than I did when I saw the promo pics… Thanks so much for swatching 😀 AHHH I’m EXCITED!
Rini recently posted: Worst. Day. Ever.
It definitely looks better than in the promo pictures! This is a must-have for me from this collection for sure.
You’re so welcome. It was fun swatching and wearing this. 🙂
I cannot wait to snatch this (and the rest) up!! Awesome swatches!
Maribeth recently posted: CND The Look Fall/Winter 2011: Midnight Sapphire, Dark Amethyst, and 24K Effect Nail Polish Pictures, Swatches, Review
Thanks! 😀 This polish loved hamming it up during the photoshoot. 😉
I love that song! And this nailpolish too, it reminds me of being in kid again with glitter crafts haha
Yeah, it’s a sweet song. I’m going to edit my post now and include a YouTube link to the song. 🙂 I’m sure it’ll bring back a lot of great memories for some people!
Yay!!! Thanks so much for swatching! I assumed I wouldn’t see swatches until the release of the collection so this was a great surprise! I do own Deborah Lippmann’s Happy Birthday, so I’m not sure I will pick up Rainbow Connection because they are rather similar, but I love that OPI is half the price, so I might pick it up for that reason alone. I can’t wait to see swatches of Across the Universe! The Deborah Lippmann glitters are some of the best I have ever seen. I’m waiting to get Bad Romance and Some Enchanted Evening. 🙂
You’re very welcome. 🙂 I was surprised to see a box waiting for me and when I saw Rainbow Connection, I knew that I’d have to wear it soon because it’s so pretty!
It’s cool that you have Happy Birthday already! 🙂 Do you have the new or the old version? I think both are pretty.
Ooohh…I almost got Bad Romance, but I was trying to stick to just one Deborah Lippmann polish since this month I went berzerk on buying polish. Plus when I purchased Across the Universe, I also got Chanel Peridot in the same order. The price tag was enough to make me stop at just those two! 😛
This is beyond awesome!! I’m even more excited (if it was even possible) to get this when they finally have it stores!! That is such a glittertastic mani! Love, love, love! That in depth review pretty much just put this polish in the #1 spot in the “must have” list!
Sorry about the exclamation points. 😛
Wow, that’s quite an honour for this polish to take your coveted #1 spot! 😀 It truly is special and at the OPI price point, it’s more accessible than Deborah Lippmann’s Happy Birthday.
Hehe, no need to apologize for being excited and for using exclamation points! I use them with wild abandon!
I’ve been lemming the Deborah Lippmann birthday set but it’s a little pricey and I’d rather get a Chanel polish if I was going to go with brands anyway. But that’s just me. 😛
Also, just stumbled upon this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmFI39YfSAY) and while I know it’s not even OPI, but it IS still about nail polish and I just died from all the cuteness. XD Thought I’d share. Enjoy! 😀
Haha, that’s the youngest makeup guru on YouTube I’ve ever seen. 😛 How cute! I love it when she says, “You just need it.” Hahahaha!
Love it! It is like a glitter factory threw up on your nails, but in a good way. 😛 I have to pick this one up.
mellinail recently posted: New Non-Nail Blog
Haha, yes, it’s definitely like that. If only those glitter factories could keep getting sick on my nails. Oh, well, I guess that’s not very nice of me. 😛
Love this! Hope do you get polishes sent to you? That is AWESOME!
imfeelingnail-venturous recently posted: Ulta Jaded + NK Magical 065
Glad you love it, too! 🙂 PR contacted me and then offered to send me polishes. It was a verrrrrrrrry happy day indeed! 😀
thank you soo much for posting such a great review!! I’ve been dying to find swatches for the puppets collection (happy to see that more and more are popping up!) and this review was exactly what I’ve been looking for. The layering portion was just perfect, and you’re right it looks amazing on all base colors. I agree that it will probably be the first to sell out. Do you know the exact date that OPI will be shipping these? :O I MUST get my hands on one.. or two bottles… heck maybe 3! This is the epitome of glitter.
You’re welcome. I love testing out new nail polish (and beauty products). And I enjoy writing thorough reviews. 🙂 Glad that you found my layering swatches helpful!
I’m not sure of the exact date, but if I get details, I’ll update the press release page.
Hehe, yes, getting back-ups of Rainbow Connection is on my to-do list, too!
LOVE this, I need it!
Olivia recently posted: Catrice Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy!
Yes, it’s gorgeous isn’t it? Definitely a must-have from the collection.
Awesome, a must have for me.. and I love your CLOWN VOMIT !!!
Hehe, I’m glad you loved it. Removing it took a bit of time, but that’s to be expected of clown vomit. 😛
I dont like this color on its own, to much for me. However topped over the black and blue polishes I like it a lot!
Amber recently posted: NYX Rouge Cream Blush: Glow Review
Yeah, it’s definitely best layered. Adds more depth, I think!
Happy Holidays. I’m already in the mood since this collection is about to be released.Rainbow Connection- The perfect glitter for Halloween, Turkey day, my birthday, Black Friday, Christmas…lol. Yea, I’m goin overboard. Lovin the swatches.
Glad that you love the swatches and that it has already put you in the holiday mood in September! Hehehe 😀 Happy early holidays! 😛
Love this one! I need it! I have DL Happy Birthday but I think they’re different enough to own both. 😉 I guess I really like clown vomit. This one was my favorite in the press photos and it did not disappoint!
Katie recently posted: Revlon Starry Pink
The clowns aren’t happy. They’re all sick to their stomach…and all us nail-polish addicts are pleased as punch. 😛
You’re so lucky to have Happy Birthday! 😀 Do you have the new or the older version?
I have the older version. 🙂 Personally, I prefer it to the newer one. The polish made me fall in love with square glitter so I was upset that they took it out.
Katie recently posted: Revlon Starry Pink
Even luckier! I really like the square glitter version more, too.
How did this already sell out? I was under the impression it wasn’t supposed to be out until November? Did I read the press release wrong?
Rachel recently posted: A Positive Note: Wet n’ Wild
It hasn’t sold out yet. It will go on sale on November 1st. My prediction is that when it is released that it will be the first to sell out. 🙂
Ahhh! That’s what I thought. I know I’m saving up my money so I can go to Ulta on November 1st and I really hope I can find it. I want pretty much the entire collection.
These look gorgeous.
This also makes me wish I was able to get on the list for these review bottles. So frustrating sometimes. >.
Rachel recently posted: Bath and Body Works: Spiced Apple Toddy Candle and Owl Holder
I recently bought Milani Gems. Haven’t worn it yet, but just based on what it looks like in the bottle, it actually seems pretty close to OPI Rainbow Connection! But the hexagon glitter in the OPI one are bigger. Overall, though, I think they’re very similar. I’ll have to wear them to find out about Milani’s opacity, though.
This is like Milani Gems on steroids!! Now I’m super excited for the Muppets collection!
When I reviewed OPI Rainbow Connection, I didn’t yet have Milani Gems. I got it sometime afterwards and compared the bottles. They are actually pretty similar in the bottles, except Rainbow Connection has large hexagonal glitter that are bigger than the large hexagonal glitter in Gems.
Which colours in the Muppets Collection are you most excited to see in person?
Though all of the Muppet polishes look AMAZING, I’m definitely most excited to see this and Gone Gonzo. And Fresh Frog of Bel Air ;P. I love it when OPI makes a glitter-packed collection! 🙂
Yeah, they’re so good at it, and they like to do it around the holidays, which is perfect!
your post on rainbow connection is the best i’ve read and it’s so detailed! i’m a fan! keep up the fantastic work!
definitely getting this polish. missed out on mad as a hatter and lived to regret it! not gonna let history repeat itself this time! 🙂
Thanks so much for the awesome encouragement! 🙂 Whenever I review a product, I try to do a thorough job. Glad that you appreciate it.
You’re going to really enjoy Rainbow Connection. I recently got Milani Gems, and it’s similar, except the large hexagonal glitter in Rainbow Connection is bigger than the large hexagonal glitter in Gems. Although I’m only judging based on what Gems looks like in the bottle – haven’t tried it yet. Hope that helps a little, too.
BTW, ur probably aware of this already but just in case…the opi muppets collection is already out!! I visited my store this morning and found that rainbow connection (and the champagne color too. don’t recall the name) was sold out! the collection must have been out for at least a few days now. so much for the november release date? =/
Luckily they still had the 2 bottle combo packs left (with a free toe separator)
I didn’t want Excuse-Moi which is included in the pack, but I figured buying rainbow connection at a regular priced store would be about $10-11 CDN. This pack was only a dollar more
Just thought I’d share, if they’re sold out already, I can’t imagine how hard it would be to find them in november.
Haha, yeah, I heard about the early release. And, I’m not surprised at all that Rainbow Connection was one of the first to go. Hehe, those polish thieves. They come in the night, I swear! 😉
But I’m so happy that you got hold of the 2-pack! YAY! That’s cute how it comes with a toe separator. By the way, thanks for including that photo! 🙂
Great post!! I just bought this one myself when I realized Sephora had run out of Spark- tacular, and have to say I really love it! I put you in a post comparing the two; http://sp4rklingnails.blogspot.com/2011/10/sparktacular-versus-rainbow-connection.html
Just took a look at your blog post. Aww…thanks so much for the mention – I appreciate the link love. 🙂 And it’s great that you published that comparison post. I’m sure that a lot of people are going to find it really helpful. 🙂
Wow.. awesome!! Thanks for the early swatches I want them alllll!! I love the foil method lol will do!!!
You’re very welcome. Glad you like the Muppets Collection, too! 🙂
wow! thanks for the rewiew! i was looking at one on ebay (there are still a few left, in case some one want them) and i didn’t know to buy, or not to buy. after your rewiew, if was a buy! så pretty..
and, I am so sorry for my english, but I am from Denmark 😀
malene petersen recently posted: at kede sig.. ja tak!
You’re welcome! 🙂 Glad that you found my review useful. You’re really going to enjoy this polish, especially layered over another colour.
I found the whole muppet set on amazon for around $8USD a bottle, including shipping to the US. I’m wearing gone gonzo right now. I’m planning on using Fresh Frog of Bel Air and Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It for a Christmas manicure.
Wow, what a great price, especially because it included shipping for you. 😀 And your idea to layer the green glitter and the red glitter for Christmas sounds wonderful!
How are you liking Gone Gonzo? Did you decide to layer it or wear it solo?
Hi, great review!! I was lucky to get a bottle of this from my manicurist a week ago before it is released in November in New Zealand where I am. I love it so much, have gotten millions of compliments! 🙂 I used the same Seche Vite topcoat too. However, I find that it seems to peel off rather easily?? Rather than chipping, the whole thing comes right off! I’ve had to redo a few nails every other day or so because it comes off? Did you find that too/have any suggestions on how to prevent this?? 🙂
That’s great news! This collection started showing up much earlier than expected here in Canada, too. Good news for everyone. 🙂 Glad that you’re loving Rainbow Connection.
I’ve heard a lot of people say that Seche Vite comes off in sheets, but I haven’t experienced that, so I haven’t had to prevent it. It may be because it’s not meshing well with your base coat. Sometimes mixing Big-3-Free and non-Big-3-Free base and top coats don’t play well together, although I’ve usually had good luck.
Hmm…it may also be because of the thickness of your top-coat layer. I use a medium-thickness of top coat, which has worked well. You may need to experiment to see whether or not you need to use a thinner or thicker layer.
If all else fails, maybe this top coat just doesn’t agree with you – different nails react differently to Seche. A lot of people seem to love Posche (which is big-3-free and thinner), but my favourite is Seche even though it’s not big-3-free. I like how thick and fast-drying it is.
If anyone else out there has had the same thing happen to them, please let Su and others know what you did to remedy it. 🙂
This is an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G post! Very well written and the pictures are phenomenal! Great Job! Thank you!

GREAT POST! I tried to buy it on Amazon today, but it was $22!! Crazytown. I found it for $9.95 on Ebay, new bottle, free shipping, so I had to snatch it up. I’m rocking OPI Sparkle-iscious right now, but I cannot WAIT to try Rainbow Connection!!
Amy recently posted: Monday Must Haves
Umm…$22? That’s insane considering that it’s still just the standard $9.95 CAD here and easy enough to find. I’m glad that you got yours for a reasonable price! Good researching skills!
And I can’t wait to try OPI Sparkle-icious! 😀 Not sure when I’ll wear it, but I’ve been admiring the bottle.
Hi Mary! I just found your blog while searching google images for OPI Rainbow Connection. Your close up picture was by far the best I found so that’s what got me to this blog post 🙂 Wow, it’s a gorgeous nail polish but gosh darnit I guess I’m not caught up with nail polishes so I probably missed out this one by now….considering it’s been out for two months now almost :S I absolutely love glitter polishes especially ones that have multi colour glitter in it and perhaps even irregular shaped glitters.
I’m so glad that you found your way to my blog! 😀 Welcome! Sit down and have some coffee, tea, or something else… 🙂
You should still be able to find this colour at Trade Secrets…although, it might get harder to find later on in the New Year. So if you really want it, it’s worth taking a peek. And even some smaller salons still carry this collection. If not, Milani Gems and Nicole by OPI Rainbow in the S-Kylie are great dupes.
PR stands for Public Relations. 🙂
what other layering designs would u recommend when using rainbow connection? (:
Aside from the layering combinations I’ve swatched in this post, I’d recommend you try layering over more shimmer polishes. (I haven’t tried any other combinations on my nails other than what I’ve shown here, but in my mind, I think that pink and purples would look lovely underneath. How about OPI Louvre Me, Louvre Me Not…or China Glaze Strawberry Fields?)
