Vintage Minnie Mouse by OPI - Swatches and Review

OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse by OPI collection

Pin ItI don’t normally get excited by the idea of a collection of pinks and reds… but this is Minnie Mouse we are talking about here!  I was excited for the collection for that reason only, and now I can tell you I like them for more than their names.

It has been well documented on this blog that I don't like light pink crèmes - I think they are wimpy and I  feel they make my hands look sickly.  I like saturated fuchsias and bright, hot pinks.  If You Moust You Moust is none of those colors.  It is a very pigmented medium pink crème that dries darker than in the bottle. It really pops against my skin, which is the first reason I like it. The second reason I like it is the formula - A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. So smoothly and creamy, but shiny and plastic-like at the same time. Here I used two coats.

The Color of Minnie is a candy apple red shimmer. It is one of those polishes that is so easy to apply that it practically applied itself. The formula literally glides off the brush and onto your nails! I really think the name is appropriate! Here I used two coats.

Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It is a glitter topcoat in a pink gel-like base. There are two types of glitter: multicolored micro glitter and large heart shaped glitter. Often times I have a hard time getting shaped glitter out of the bottle but this one was easy!

Last but not lease we have I’m All Ears… a glass-flecked jelly!  My favorite kind of polish!  This one is to die for.  if you only buy one polish from this collection, buy this one!
