I am so in love with this new collection, OPI Couture de Minnie. It’s a high-fashion take on Disney’s most fashionable mouse, and I think it’s adorable and yet sophisticated all at the same time. If you’re a pink and red nail polish lover or a Disney fan you are going to love this set of polishes. There are three limited-edition lacquers, one glitter, and one liquid sand polish in the collection.
“Last summer, OPI created a ‘Vintage Minnie Mouse’ line. Women around the world fell in love with the fun and playful shades evocative of Minnie’s traditional look,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “This year, OPI is exploring a different side of Minnie Mouse. The Couture de Minnie collection draws inspiration from Minnie’s iconic style and incorporates trends most recently seen on the runways, from standout shades to fun textural elements.”

Chic From Ears To Tail is pastel pink with a really pretty fine shimmer in it. The shimmer is pink, blue, and violet, and it’s just barely noticeable. I did find this polish to be a little on the goopy side, which you can kind of see in the swatches. It needs a solid three coats to be opaque, and it can get a little thick during those three coats.
A Definite Moust-Have is a gorgeous hot fuchsia pink. I didn’t expect to love this one as much as I do. It has a frosted shimmer to it that is very subtle, but the color is just super bright and lovely. This is a great spring and summer color for your nails and toes! It was very opaque and only required two coats.
Innie Minnie Mightie Bow is a stunning scarlet red shimmer. When I think of classic, sophisticated, sexy red nail polish, this is what it’s all about. It was opaque and rich in just two coats, and perfectly smooth out of the bottle. What a truly beautiful shade to look at.
Magazine Cover Mouse is the “liquid sand” texture polish in the collection. It is a bright red with hot pink and gold glitter and shimmer in it. These texture polishes seem to be very hit or miss with people. I personally like these texture polishes, and I think they look really cool when they hit the light because they still sparkle even though they dry matte.
Minnie Style is the glitter polish of the collection with hot pink, red, and white hexagonal glitter. It actually dispersed glitter pieces very well in just one coat, and the above swatches are two coats of glitter polish. I paired this glitter polish over top of “A Definite Moust-Have” below:
The effect is really pretty, and definitely very Minnie Mouse!
Overall, the OPI Couture de Minnie Collection is a fabulous collection of polishes. There are fantastic, classic, timeless shades in the collection, and they will appeal to both Disney lovers and those who love pink and red nail polish.
