Pink Wednesday!! O.P.I VIntage Minnie Mouse Collection Swatches

Happy Humpday!

  I know this is kind of a cop out but I have not done a Pink Wednesday in a while and showing you guys this collection just seemed fitting for the occasion. Every Summer (ish) O.P.I seems to release a "themed" collection of Four colors. A few years back it was Summer Flutter, last year they did Nice Stems and this year they are giving us Four Minnie Mouse themed shades. 
Sorry about this jank looking collage... My life will never be the same until a better replacement for Picnik comes along. I've tried Pic Monkey and Aviary but I plain don't like them. Using the Creative Kit in Picasa at the moment but it's just not the same..... So yeah... You should totally keep reading to see some pretty swatches!


O.P.I Nothin Mousie 'Bout It over O.P.I I'm all Ears
 Nothing Mousie 'Bout It is a mix of micro glassflecky bits of Orange and Violet floating in a light Pink jelly base and little Pink hearts. This is a really cute polish. I was iffy on the hearts because we all know how much of a pain these types of polishes can be. To save myself frustration I just applied my shimmery coat without trying to get hearts on there. Then picked the little hearts off the brush and placed them on my nail with an orange stick. Then I went back and sandwhiched the hearts in one more coat of Nothin Mousie 'Bout It. The general verdict on this is that a lot of girls seem to wish that it did not have the hearts but I LOVE the hearts. Very cute and "Minnie" like.

O.P.I I'm all Ears
 While colors like this one no longer feel unique to me I do have to say that this is still quite beautiful. This is one of those amazing, sparkly jelly based glassflecks. This one is more Hot Pink toned than some of the other Violet-Magenta glassflecks we have seen in the past. I did Three thin coats for maximum color payoff and coverage.

O.P.I The Color of Minnie
 Oh yum! The name is perfect, the color is perfect. This is a candy toned Red Pearl. With this one there is a bit of a freakout as you first apply it because it looks brushstrokey but as it dries the strokes disappear and you are left with a beautiful Pearly, candy Red surface. This color has an amazing formula and does well in Two coats.

O.P.I If you Moust you Moust
 And what is a Minnie collection without some Pink?! If you Moust you Moust is a light Blue toned, bubblegum Pink creme. It's quite a safe color but it fits in well with the collection and the seasonal trends. This color does best in Three thin coats.
Overall, I am enjoying this collection because I'm a child at heart and I always remember loving Minnie as a child. I remember the very first time I went to Disney World and I "met Minnie"... I froze up because I was so star struck, my parents had to nudge me to walk up to her hahaha!

Thoughts on this cute collection?

  18. Great swatches! I've been mourning the loss of picnik as well...but I've been using my good-for-nothing-else Google+ account because they're "creative studio" for pictures IS picnik's software =]! A few less features, but all the good stuff is there, go check it out =]!

  19. Don't get me wrong, they look gorgeous on you. But there's nothing 'new' about them. Just an interesting approach for OPI to take. Thanks for swatching them though, as always:)

  20. OH MY FREAKING GOSH! These are gorgeous, although I am not a pink fan of having pink on nails. I might have to snag these those. I just might have to.
    Thanks for the beautiful swatches!!

  21. These pinks looks so pretty! I'm wondering how does I'm all Ears compare with Wing It! (from the Summer Flutter collection). The shimmer seems to be rather similar. In fact, the shimmer in Nothing Mousie 'Bout It looks similar too. If possible, could you do a comparison between I'm all Ears and Wing It!?

    Thanks for these awesome swatches!
