Hi friends! Today I have polishes from OPI's upcoming Couture de Minnie collection to share with you!
From OPI's press release:
“Last summer, OPI created a ‘Vintage Minnie Mouse’ line. Women around the world fell in love with the fun and playful shades evocative of Minnie’s traditional look,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “This year, OPI is exploring a different side of Minnie Mouse. The Couture de Minnie collection draws inspiration from Minnie’s iconic style and incorporates trends most recently seen on the runways, from standout shades to fun textural elements.”
First, here's Chic From Ears To Tail, a creamy, bubblegum pink with ever so faint shimmer flecks hidden within. Formula was good- just a tad on the sheer side, so I did 3 layers here:
Then I topped 'Chic...' with the glitter from this collection, Minnie Style. I am always the most excited about the glitters, and this one did not disappoint me. A clear base with white and pinky-red hex glitters, this certainly goes with the Minnie theme perfectly. Bonus- this glitter was easy to work with...not a ton of "placing" necessary:
Next is the warm, hot pink-fuchsia shade called A Definite Moust-Have. This one has a creamy base with a wink of shimmer running through it. 2 layers here:
Then there's Innie Minnie Mighty Bow, a sexy red shimmer that applied beautifully! I used 3 layers in this photo, but in "real life" you would probably only need 2:
Last we have the Liquid Sand polish named Magazine Cover Mouse. This texture and color reminded me of strawberry jam. 2 layers:
Final thoughts: I loved all 5 of these, with Innie Minnie Mighty Bow and Magazine Cover Mouse being my favorites. These are some great pinks and reds to grab if your collection is lacking those colors (mine definitely is lacking in the red department!). The glitter is fairly unique (perfect for Valentine's Day!) and if you read my blog, you already know I'm a Liquid Sand/texture fan! Nothing wears longer on your nails than a textured polish, so this is a great choice if you aren't someone who likes to change your polish every other day.
