OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection!!!

I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON! 
YAY!  I won the giveaway that Cosmetic Sanctuary had and I received the OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection!  That's right!  ALL FOUR OF THEM!!!  Wow.  I am so ecstatic and a HUGE thank you to Lisa at Cosmetic Sanctuary!  She is a funny lady and has a really great blog with almost 7,000 followers, so chances are that you are already following her, but if not -GO!!!!
The Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection was OPI's special summer collection.  It consists of 4 polishes in the pink and red category. 
  I'm All Ears is shimmery pinky-red polish that goes on smoothly in two even coats.  It has some pink glass flecks in it that make it different from the norm.  On the ring finger, you can see what Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It looks like over the top.  I will get more into depth about that polish at the end of this post.  
If You Moust, You Moust  is a bubblegum pink creme. It reads slightly darker than this picture shows. I do not own any bubblegum pinks, because it is too girly for me; but after wearing it, I decided I needed some girly in my life.  This polish didn't self-level very well and took three coats to become opaque.  The middle finger shows If You Moust, You Moust with Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It over the top.
The Color of Minnie is a true Minnie Mouse red creme with a slight silver shimmer running through it.  This was my favorite of the three formula-wise.  It went on smoothly and evenly in two coats.  I am not a huge red fan, because that was almost all I wore before becoming a polishaholic.  I have to say though, that all the reds I own are OPI's.  They really know how to make red interesting!
On my middle finger is Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It over the top.
  I noticed a crazy shimmer to the Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It top coat when I put it on the swatches.  I knew it would look fantastic layered over black, so here it is!  Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It is a pink-purple fleck top coat with pink heart glitter in it.  Almost every heart you see in all of the pictures had to be manually put on the nail.  This was unfortunate.  I think OPI can take some lessons from some of our indie brands out there when it comes to making glitter polishes!
All in all, a great collection if not the most unique colors.  Thank you again to Cosmetic Sanctuary for her fantastic giveaway and her generosity! Go check out her BLOG and her FACEBOOK PAGE!

I like the Nothin Mousy Bout It because it makes my mouth water as though I'm about to eat a Jolly Rancher Watermelon candy! Mmm.
Hooray on the pink girly one that makes you need some girly in your life. You've just joined my ranks, though I arrived here by giving birth to a girly girl. LOL
Miss you!
