OPI Pepe's Purple Passion

     I have another OPI polish swatch for you today! OPI Pepe's Purple Passion is a polish from the OPI Holiday 2011 Muppets Collection. I have really enjoyed OPI's Holiday Collections from the past couple of years.
     I bought this polish because the color in the bottle was gorgeous. So when I started to apply the polish to my nails, I was surprised at how difficult the application was. The polish felt gritty and goopy, and it seemed to dry too much before I was finished applying it to my nails. I really do enjoy wearing OPI colors, but the Pro-Wide brush is a problem for me because the brush it too wide for my nails. That being said, the application felt even more difficult because the brush on this polish seemed uneven and caused the polish to be uneven near my cuticles.
     As much as I hated the application of Pepe's Purple Passion, (And I've read on other blogs about the grittiness and thickness of the formula on this particular color, so my bottle must not be the only one.) I did really like the color. It is a reddish vampy purple with glass-fleck shimmer. I do wish the shimmer was more noticeable, but, oh, well.
     What do you think of Pepe's Purple Passion? Are there some colors that are worth the horrible application issues to you?
     Check out the photos and let me know what you think in the comments!! ☺
