I'm All Ears & Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It

I am so, so excited about OPI's upcoming Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection! I absolutely loved last years Nice Stems Collection, which was also an all pink, 4 piece collection. I know that pink isn't everyone's favourite polish shade, but I adore it!

When I received the polishes today, the two that immediately stood out to me were I'm All Ears & Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It, so I paired them together! First, I will show you I'm All Ears by itself.






I think that this colour is gorgeous! In the pictures above, I am not wearing a top coat! Can you see the shine? I'm All Ears is a pretty shimmery pink/magenta polish. The shimmer in this shade is pink and gold, just beautiful! I used three coats of this polish, but you could easily get away with just two. I found that with two coats you could still slightly see my nail line, but with three coats the colour was completely opaque. 

And as if this polish was beautiful enough on it's own... I added a glitter top coat! Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It is a beautiful sheer pink shimmer top coat that shares the same pink and gold flecks as I'm All Ears. These two colours together make a beautiful pair! Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It has pretty large pale pink heart shaped confetti. I absolutely love the idea of this! However, it does take some work to ensure that you get hearts on each nail. I think that the extra work is well worth it though! The end result is just gorgeous!





What do you think about this combination? This collection will be available in June in spas and salons. If you wanted me to layer Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It over another polish, let me know in the comments below, and if I have that polish I will gladly do that for you! :)

Disclosure: These polishes were sent to me for my honest review.

  2. I hated the glitter so much when I reviewed it! It was thick and hard to work with and a general pain! I love how it looks but using it was just a nightmare!

    1. I agree, it's such a pain to apply, but I think it's worth it in the end. The hearts are just so pretty!

  3. I'm super excited for this collection, even though I need more pink polish like I need another hole in the head haha. I'm especially looking forward to "I'm All Ears", as it reminds me of a discontinued OPI color called "Far East Fuchsia" (Maybeline also had an identical color with the same name in the early 2000's) and I've been trying to get my hands on it for quite some time. "I'm All Ears" looks slightly more glittery than "Far East Fuchsia", but hey I'll take what I can get!" LOL.

    I had maybeline's version when I was in high school, but I tossed it a few years back. I am kicking myself for that now!

    In case you're not familiar with Far East Fuchsia here's swatches of both Maybeline and OPI's versions:

    1. I don't need any more pink polish either, but I just can't get enough! Thanks for the links! I think I like the OPI polish more, but they are both lovely. I'm All Ears does have quite a bit of shimmer in it, I love it! :)
