NOTD: Little Peanuts by OPI

I found Little Peanuts, the mini set from OPI's Halloween collection, impossible to resist.  It wasn't because it has a black or a taxi-cab yellow polish in it, although I'm not opposed to them.  It was the glitters!  Oh, and the Peanut's themed nail decals!
Realistically, nothing about this set screams "Halloween" to me.  That's okay, as it actually reminds me a bit of another OPI Halloween mini set that I really enjoyed, 2012's So So Skullicious.   A disappointing difference turned out to be the decals in the Peanuts set, as they are not water decals but peel off stickers.  I found that out after I let them sit in water for 10 minutes.  Yep, I'm quick like that.  Now I'm wondering how different the yellows in the two sets are.  Hmmm.

But's it's the Peanuts gang!  So of course I couldn't resist.  WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? is a very nice black, and two coats provide glossy color.  The yellow Good Grief! was a bit problematic, and I needed 3 coats to get smooth color.  Like the color though!
Love the glitters and don't have anything like them, so they are really the stars of the collection IMO.  I used a dabbing method to place To Be or Not to Beagle on my ring finger. 
I don't remember the cartoons as particularly violent, but maybe memory is failing me.  Pow!  Bonk!  Oof!  Linking up with The Nail Files hosted by Jennie Shaw:

  5. SHUTUPPEANUTSOPI!!! Have I been under a rock? Well, actually, I kind of have been with my writing, but I've got to get to a Sally's STAT because I seriously NEEEEEED this set. Haha! Sorry about the screaming but I can't help it! They all look so awesome! Bummer about the decals being stickers, though. I hate when the edges inevitably catch on things. I can't seem to ever have enough top coat. But I don't even care because these four colours are super fun!
