Review & Swatches| OPI Nothin' Mousie Bout It


Nothin' Mousie Bout It, is one of four polishes released as part of the Vintage Minnie 
Mouse Collection by O.P.I earlier this year. 

This particular polish was the one that I had been lusting after ever since I first
laid eyes on it. However just couldn't bring myself to pay the £11 for it! 
Once again my lovely boyfriend stepped up and bought it as a surprise gift for me.
I was so excited to try it out. 

The polish itself has a clear base, filled with tiny baby pink iridescent specks, 
and large baby pink heart shaped sequins. The liquid is really quite thick
however the brush is wide and it applies really well. 

Unfortunately I was a little disappointed with the heart sequins. Although they do
come out of the bottle onto the brush, they don't adhere to the nail surface along
with the rest of the polish. I ended up using an orange stick to place each individual heart 
onto my nails to provide the equally spaced out swatches above. 
But in the end it was well worth the hassle, because it just looks soooo pretty :)

The finishing texture is a little rough on the surface however a good top coat
will soon sort this out, and will add a bit of extra shine. Although it's really 
not necessary as the polish itself dries with a glossy effect anyway. 

*For reference I have layered Nothin' Mousie Bout It on top of Missguided Misstify
nail polish in the above swatches for effect. 

This was unfortunately from a limited edition polish collection.
Most online stockists have sold out, however you can pick it up on ebay. 
Take a look here. It retails for around the £11 mark. 

Have you got any of the Minnie Mouse Collection?
What's your favourite?

  4. I adored the Minnie Mouse collection but had to be really good about not getting it as I already had the pinks lol. The hearts do look pretty just sucks that they don't stick properly :(
