OPI Couture de Minnie Nail Lacquers

One of the cutest, most girly collections of the year was released by OPI recently – the new OPI Couture de Minnie Nail Lacquers collections. Minnie Mouse inspiration? Check. Pink and red? Check. Glitter? Check check!

And today I bring you three of these cuties to inspire your inner girly-girl!

Let’s see…. let’s start with the adorable bubble-gum pink Chic from Ears to Tail, a crelly (cream jelly) formula polish with a surprising lavender shimmer. This was the one I was most excited about, loving pink polishes as much as I do. Imagine my surprise when it applied amazingly well, even with the semi-sheer crelly formula (I am a sucker for jellies!), and had that almost invisible shimmer. I applied Chic carefully, not going over an area often as sheer polishes, especially in pale shades, can sometimes streak.

Here are two coats over base coat:

Is that not a gorgeous pink shade? Both summery and office-appropriate! Love!

Getting a few shades darker, A Definite Moust-Have is a hot fuchsia shade with a dusting of silver shimmer. The formula on this polish was amazing: a slightly thicker creme formula that provided full coverage on the first coat, it has a vibrant intensity. I used two coats over OPI’s base coat, no top coat:

If you click on the photo, you can see the hidden pearly finish within the light reflection. I am obsessed with this polish!

And finally, Minnie Style, the glitter bomb of the collection, a clear base filled with red, white and pink small hex glitters. A versatile glitter polish, I was impressed by Minnie Style. Though a bit on the thick side, you don’t have to dig for glitters and the polish disperses a good amount on each stroke.

Here is Minnie Style over Chic from Ears to Tail:

Finally, you know I couldn’t leave you without sandwiching some glitter! How adorable did this jelly sandwich with Chic from Ears to Tail, Minnie Style, and a coat of I Theodora You from OPI’s Oz Collection turn out?

  1. That OPI glitter is awesome. I bought it just to fill out a “buy one, get one” deal, and I’ve wound up using it more than the original polish I wanted to buy! Lovely swatches. 🙂
