Tag Archives: Couture de Minnie

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?

“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.”
