Hello lovelies,

so here is my Minnie Mouse nail art design! With only three creme polishes in the collection there is a small number of gradient colour combinations you can do so yes, some other bloggers have already done this. I can't remember which ones but if you leave me a link in the comment I can reference to them.

The accent finger features Minnie Mouse over gradient. I have used OPI A Definite Moust-Have,
Chic From Ears To Tail, Innie Minnie Mightie Bow, Minnie Style and acrylic paint.

Since I've gotten the new Illamasqua UV glow topcoat in Geist I wanted to try it out and test how different colours underneath it will influence the glow. It looks interesting and it did not influence the colours in daylight. I've partly painted the accent finger so you can see the difference with and without topcoat. Cool, right?

Hello lovelies,

It seems like OPI has Couture de Minnie month and I'm joining too with my review. I've got these polishes slightly later than other so I wasn't able to join OPI's blogger reach out and submit my Minnie Mouse nail art...but that doesn't mean I don't have one for you ;)

Right now, let's check out my swatches of the OPI Couture de Minnie Collection!

Lucy's Stash - OPI Couture de Minnie Collection

A Definite Moust-Have - Bright coral red with subtle silver shimmer. The colour is bright but not bright enough to be called a neon. I really like this fun, summery shade and even better it has excellent pigmentation. One coat was almost enough for perfect coverage but in the end I applied two coats. It applied very easily and polish dried fast and glossy.

Chic From Ears To Tail - candy pink half jelly creme with subtle silver shimmer. This polish had slightly sheerer formula and needed careful application. I've had to apply two thicker coats to avoid patching and to get good coverage. It dried fast and glossy.

Innie Minnie Mightie Bow - rich red with subtle gold shimmer particles. I love reds and this one is really pretty! It also has a great pigmentation and one coat was almost enough for full coverage. I'm wearing two coats and no topcoat. It applied nicely but the formula was little runny so don't use too thick coats. Drying time was good.

Magazine Cover Mouse - strawberry red liquid sand with gold and magenta particles. This is a pretty addition into the Liquid Sand range with great formula. It applied very easily and one coat was almost enough but I did apply second coat in the end. The removal is more difficult so I always make sure to soak the nails for a minute or two.

Minnie Style - red, white and magenta hex glitter in a clear base. What a fun glitter topper! I like the colour combination as it totally matches the Minnie Mouse theme. I've applied one thicker coat over A Definite Moust-Have but I have picked out some extra glitter to get denser coverage.

So that's it, that's the whole Couture de Minnie collection. I like all the polishes, they are fun and girly. They all have good formula and are up to the high OPI standard.
