OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection: The Color Of Minnie & Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It






I love the themes that OPI has been doing lately.  First Spiderman, now Minnie Mouse?  This is a 4 piece set and I have 2 of them today (I am trying- in the name of all that is holy- to only purchase the colors that grab me right away.  At least until I buy a 2nd Helmer ;)

"The Color Of Minnie" is gorgeous red with shimmer and a flash of pink.  If you have read my blog before, you may know that I am not a 'red' girl at all.  I just never feel they look right on me.  As soon as I saw this red though, I knew we'd be friends:

(2 layers)
In the sun you can see that pretty pink flash.

In the shade, you can see this is a serious red:)
"Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It" is a glass-fleck,flaky type glitter that is pink, purple, and orange.  There are also pink hearts mixed in.  Usually,  this type of "shaped" glitter can be challenging to fish out of the bottle.  This one was a tad easier than others I've used in the past.  Still, I didn't go nuts trying to get them out and settled on one heart per nail.  Besides, I don't think the hearts are the best part of this polish- the flecks steal the show!

I have so many other colors that I want to layer "Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It" over!  (Look for that post soon ;D ).

  1. Maribeth, I don't know why you don't wear more reds - they look totally amazing against your skin tone! I absolutely adore this red...it's so vivid & happy! You're the first person who I feel actually "got" what 'Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It' is supposed to be; you're right: it's not about how many hearts you can fish out & apply, cause the randomness makes it unique, but the flakies sure do hold they eye! Fab swatches!

  2. In a way, the reluctance of the hearts to come out of the bottle can be looked at as a feature--I did a mani where I used the shimmery part as a topcoat on all but one accent nail which I did load up with hearts.
