OPI Chic From Ears to Tail & Minnie Style - NOTD #7

Hello everyone! Back with my weekly nail post, no idea why I call it NOTD (Nail of the Day) as it is a weekly thing.. But lets just roll with it! Now I know what you are thinking.. It's September and you have bubblegum pink nail polish on, what?! I know.. But I wanted to bring it out one last time before Autumn truly sets in.. Anyway today we are here to look at OPI's Chic From Ears to Tail & Minnie Style.

Both of these are from the Couture de Minnie collection (surprise surprise) that was released this Summer. I actually got 3 out of the 4 limited edition shades and the new Liquid Sand shade, as it was part of a set my Dad got me at the airport as a present (he knows me well!) Last year OPI created a Vintage Minnie Mouse line, so this year OPI wanted to go for the more "fashion-forward" side of Minnie and go for brighter, more intense girly colours - so this collection was born.

“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 the bubblegum pink shade which is a crème lacquer, meaning the formulation is to give opaque, solid colour easily. Minnie Style is the red and white podka dot glitter shade, which I personally loved the minute I saw it in the set!

As per usual I absolutely love both polishes and even though they are not season appropriate, I still love them both so much! They both applied easily, each coat dried within minutes and with 2 coats I had full opacity! Also, with Minnie Style, it acts as a really good top coat as well as it is a thick clear nail polish with glitter particles throughout it.

The only things I have to comment is with Chic From Ears to Tail, the colour looks a lot brighter on the nails than in the bottle, in the bottle it looks like a muted, dull pink but on the nails it is a bright bubblegum colour - not a bad thing, I was just surprised! Also, I had to apply 2 coats of Minnie Style which I did not expect as even though there are about 2 billion glitter particles in the bottle, about 5 are on the brush so you really need to scoop them up to get some on the brush, which isn't a bad thing really - means a better top coat!




I as per usual, love these polishes. OPI has not failed me yet with their formulation, their lasting power, their colour range.. Overall yet again, I am seriously impressed and will slowly keep expanding my collection, even though it breaks the bank. UK peeps, you can buy these here and as for anyone outside the UK, google is your friend, use it wisely!

That's about it for this post, thank you for reading. Have you tried any OPI nail polishes? Please let me know what your favourite shade is!

Have a lovely day and don't stop smiling. :)

Hannah, xx

  8. It's a very pretty look and for me OPI are probably the best nail polishes - cool shades, great formula and OK prices. Xx

    1. Okay, I'm just gonna say this and if it sounds rude then I'm sorry.. But can you please not just put your link to your blog in a comment? At least say something about the post I worked hard on creating and editing instead of just posting your link. I don't mind people posting a comment saying something about the post and then their link as I always check out their blog if they comment it but just posting your link is rude, and kinda puts me off checking out your blog. Just thought you should know.
