OPI - The Color of Minnie

Swatches & Review

The Color of Minnie is from OPI's 2012 Vintage Minnie Mouse collection. The Color of Minnie is well.. basically the color of Minnie, which is RED! Normally, I'm not the person to wear red. The only two other reds I actually use is Zoya's Reva & Essie's Big Bag Theory. Originally, I was not going to purchase anything from this collection, but after seeing it in person, I had to have it!

The Color of Minnie is a Red with subtle silver shimmer in it. The shimmer was hard to capture, and it is hard to see indoors, but when it's outdoor, the shimmer is a lot more visible. This was a really pigmented red color, and I could have totally gotten away with one coat easily. For my swatches, I used two coats. Application was smooth, so I had no problems with it at all. On my ring finger, I am also using another color from this collection, which is called I'm All Ears. It is a pink with darker pink & some blue shimmer. The shimmer in I'm All Ears is definitely more noticeable than The Color of Minnie. I'm All Ears required three coats since it is sheerer than The Color of Minnie. However, it did not affect the application of it at all.

Overall, I like these colors. I feel like they are perfect for summer, especially I'm All Ears since it is bright. My camera had a hard time capturing The Color of Minnie, so in real life, it is a tad bit darker, but it is definitely a gorgeous color. Both of these applied perfectly and even when I'm using it in almost 100 degree weather, it was not goopey after a while of applying, which is the trouble I have with some polishes when I'm painting my nails while it's hot out.

What do you think about this collection? Love it? Hate it? Let me know! :)
