Talk about your sneak attacks! Normally I don't do a full day of nail polish posting, but I couldn't wait to show you this collection!
OPI is soon releasing two new collections, the Amazing Spider-Man and the polishes featured in this post from Vintage Minnie Mouse. Obviously, I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the Spider-Man, and while I was excited for Minnie it wasn't like the excitement for Spidey.... Today as I sit swatching the Vintage Minnie Mouse I am in complete and utter love. Keep reading to check out swatches and find out which one is the surprise favorite!!
Polishes from this collection include (L-R) Nothin' Mousie 'bout It, If You Moust You Moust, I'm All Ears, and The Color of Minnie.
Nothin' Mousie 'bout It!
Nothin' Mousie 'bout It! has a clear base but, if you look closely, features mini flakies!!! The hearts included are sparse and a bit temperamental, but the rest more than makes up for that. Love this one. Three coats were used in the photo. I also applied one coat of this polish over one finger for each shade below.
If You Moust You Moust

If You Moust You Moust is a deep blue-toned pink cream. I wasn't too excited about a pink cream, but it looks AMAZING on the nail and even more amazing with a coat of Nothin' Mousie 'bout It on top! Three coats were used in the photo.
I'm All Ears

I'm All Ears is yet another fuchsia with the pink and blue shimmers. It's redundant, though a beautiful shade and it does fit in well with this set. The formula is a bit sheer on it's own, so I used three thick coats for the swatch photos.
The Color of Minnie

The Color of Minnie is a beautiful and pigmented red cream with fuchsia shimmers. The formula is awesome and I personally love this shade like no other. I have a lot of reds, and even one I consider to be my signature red nail (Chanel Dazzling), and this one might just be getting bumped ahead of all of those! The shade actually reminds me of Chanel Rouge Carat, though I don't have that one to do a comparison. Three coats were used for the photo.
Overall, I didn't expect to love this mini collection... but I do! Must haves are Nothin' Mousie 'bout It and If You Moust You Moust (if you don't have a pink cream similar!). If you're in the market for a really great red, The Color of Minnie will also be right up your alley. Wouldn't this have made an awesome collection for Valentine's Day?? All pinks, reds and hearts! Love is in the air!
