Minnie Mouse nail art


I have seen the OPI Minnie Mouse collection and I am sad to say, but I was disappointed! The colors are typical red/pinkish and there's a sort of interesting effect topcoat, but it's just finely milled mylar flakies with hearts glitters, like in NOPI polishes. Needless to say, I am not impressed... but rather than be mad, I did my own Minnie-style nails!
I used the Konad plates to stamp the polka dots and the base colors were WnW Black Creme, SH Instadri Whirlwind White and my favourite neon this season - China Glaze - A Rose Among Thorns.
These came out a lot prettier than I expected! I might have to do more Disney inspired stuff later on, I'm planning maybe a Steamboat style Mickey...
That will have to wait though because I am finally moving! I'm going to have access to the rest of my stash again. This means I can put this and my "temporary" 6 month stash together and organize everything. That's going to feel soo good. This also means I will have a solid place to set up a lamp to photograph and a computer desk with a desktop computer and a good viewing angle. This should solve the issues I have with photographs looking too washed out/too saturated, etc.
Ooh, so excited!

  2. ooh, exciting news! I hope your moving goes as smoothly as possible (it can be a hectic time).

    I love your take on the Minnie mani. The OPI collex was a big yawnfest to me too, but I see it as a positive thing, more $$ for other pretties :) (like indies! I'm SO into indies right now)

    1. Yeah, I thought I'd buy a few too, since I love Minnie, but I saw the swatches and was a little sad. Have you tried the hearts glitter over black? It turns iridescent!

  4. Adorable! I too picked up the heart top coat...I really though it would be exactly the same as the nicole ones but the shimmer made all the difference for me!
