OPI Limited Edition Minnie Mouse Collection: Swatches and Review

Hello Lovers!!!

Today I have my review and swatches of OPI's new collection named after that lovely mouse in a  dress...Minnie Mouse!

"OPI launches Vintage Minnie Mouse, including four limited edition nail lacquers, for summer. Created in honor of Disney’s beloved character, the colors encapsulate Minnie Mouse’s irresistible charm in playful, pretty shades of pink and red." 

"Nothin Mousie 'bout It"
2 coats, no top coat

2 coats, and as you can see this is definitely meant to be a top coat, not meant to be worn alone. But regardless, it is not an easy polish to apply. I had to dig and "plop" each heart on my nail. No fun!

"I'm All Ears"
2 coats, no top coat

Gorgeous fuchsia glass fleck shimmer! Really pretty! I think OPI has changed their formula a bit, the polish is super glassy and smooth and even easier to apply then before, me likey!  Definite keeper!

"If You Moust You Moust"
3 coats, no top coat

This is actually very a pretty dusty rose pink creme, but I had streaks and "drag" at 2 coats, so I did a 3rd coat to even it out.Not terribly unique, but still a nice glassy pink finish is always nice to have in any collection.

"The Color of Minnie"
2 coats, no top coat

This is a great red with flashes of pink shimmer. Gorgeous! Applied like glass and honestly it was opaque in 1 coat, but I did 2 coats, so I could see more of that great flash! It takes a lot of a red to "WOW" me, and this one certainly did! :)

And here they are topped with "Nothin Mousie 'bout It".

"I'm All Ears" topped with "Nothin Mousie 'bout It"

"If You Moust you Moust" topped with "Nothin Mousie 'bout It"

"The Color of Minnie" topped with "Nothin Mousie 'bout It"

Overall my favorites are "The Color of Minnie" and "I'm all Ears"..these are really pretty and if you love reds, pinks and Minnie Mouse you'll want the entire collection.

As with all OPI nail lacquers, Vintage Minnie Mouse by OPIcontains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and features OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.
This limited edition promotion will be available beginning June 2012 at professional salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for  $8.50 ($9.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

I love that we have the same taste in these! And you are a far better blogger than me for swatching the glitter more than once! Your swatches look great!

@Carly- LOL, I'm not a better blogger, I just kept hoping with every swatch the glitter would get better...it didn't, LOL!:)

I've been looking at the heart topper, but I'm definitely not in for fishing every heart up, so I'll give it a miss.
Thanks for swatching these for us, it's been a great help. :)
