OPI Couture de Minnie Collection Swatches and Review

Friday is here! Feels good, doesn’t it? I have fun collection to show you today, the OPI Couture de Minnie Collection. It includes four limited edition polishes and one new Liquid Sand shade. This collection is inspired by a more “fashion-forward” Minnie Mouse. All of the colors are reds and pinks – but there’s a wide range of textures and shades to give it variety.

I’ll start with my surprise favorite, Innie Minnie Mightie Bow. This polish is a crimson red with a fine gold shimmer. Think of it as the less flamboyant, baby sister of The Spy Who Loved Me. Innie Minnie Mightie Bow has a similar red shade with but with a much more subtle gold effect. I don’t know why I like this one so much…but I do. The formula was nice. This is two easy coats.

Chic from Ears to Tail is a soft, bubblegum pink. It has the slightest sparkly shimmer that you can’t really see in my photos. I probably have a few similar pinks in my stash…but I can never have enough. I had to use three coats for coverage.

Minnie Style is a red and white glitter. I was most curious about this one when I saw the press release photos. And when I saw the bottle in person I gasped a little! It really is like an abstract “Minnie” polka-dot. My only wish was that the glitter was round instead of hexes – that would have been amazing. I used one coat (with a little dabbing) over Chic from Ears to Tail.

Magazine Cover Mouse is the lone Liquid Sand polish in the collection. OPI calls it a “strawberry” shade and that’s really dead on. The textured finish is really fine and sparkly with hints of pink and gold. Application was really nice. I used two coats and no topcoat.

And last but not least is A Definite Moust-Have. This polish is a mystery to me. OPI describes it as a fantastic fuchsia. I swear, this looks straight up coral to me in the bottle and on my nails. But I download my pics from my camera and there’s that fuchsia. It has a very slight silvery shimmer that does make it “pinker” when in direct light. If I tried to color correct it to the warmer shade I saw with my own eyeballs…then my skin was orange. But it really doesn’t matter. It’s a pretty shade whether it’s coral or fuchsia. The formula was excellent. This is two easy coats.

    Ooohh, I can see why you like Innie Minnie Mightie Bow, it has that “glowing” property that sends me over the edge! How does Magazine Cover Mouse compare to The Impossible? The base shades look similar enough that I think I can pass on Magazine Cover Mouse. Thanks for the revies and the great swatches!

    I love A Definite Moust-Have! It’s an amazing colour!

  4. I really love Innie Minnie and A Definite Moust-Have, but I already own The Spy Who Loved Me and a similar fuschia. It’s probably best if I just pass on this collection (although you never know with me and my polish hoarding habits). I really wish the glitter was circular instead of hex :(

    • LOL. I agree Jay. If we were sensible, we would pass. But alas, some things are just too tempting! Circular glitter would have made the glitter a home run – but it’s still unique and pretty.

  7. Jie says:

    I can’t wait for these polishes! all the colors look so good

  8. I need Minnie Style – I think the other colours are nice but nothing super special. I am trying to control my spending by only picking up “special” polishes from the pricier brands (which for me includes OPI). Lovely swatches!

  9. oh wow I love your blog! I just discovered it:)

    A definite moust have reminds me a little of my chihuahua bites, also a coral/fuchsia shade. Love minnie style.

  11. Couture de Minie looks amazing! They’re all cute polishes though =)
