OPI Minnie Style

Hi, you guys! We just spent the Saturday morning trying to fight back against the blackberry bush that's slowly creeping from the hillside into our backyard. This bush is huge and invasive, so it's posing to be an interesting problem for the hubby. Hopefully we can clear it faster than it's growing, but if not, I guess we can always hire some goats like they did at a local university to clear out weeds and blackberry bushes lol. :D

Today, I've got another fun color from the OPI Couture de Minnie Collection to share with you. Minnie Style is filled with uniformly medium-sized reflective pink and red and non-reflective white hexagon glitters in a sheer base.






Minnie Style is a glitter very much from the same inspiration as a lot of the glitter polishes we see from OPI, with their signature larger-sized hex glitters in a variety of colors. Application is a little tricky, but that is typical of glitters of this size. Make sure to get enough polish on your brush, then dollop that onto the nails and gingerly smooth and distribute the glitters around. It does take a little bit of finagling, but it's not too bad. What you see in the swatches is one coat over OPI A Definite Moust-Have.

You can find Minnie Style at your local nail salons and beauty stores such as Ulta and Dillard's for a retail price of $9 for 0.5 fl oz.

    1. Yes, it's definitely very "Minnie"! Hehe I wish there were berries, but since it's wild, we have all the problems of a thorny bush with none of the benefits lol. :D

  7. Very sweet glitter.
    Are blackberry bushes that troublesome? I have no idea how fast they grow/spread.

    1. I'm glad you like the glitter! :)
      Around here, blackberry bushes are invasive and everywhere. They grow so fast because they're a weed and don't require a certain type of soil or nutrient. And just like all weeds, they're hard to get rid of. :)

  8. This polish is pretty but not as gorgeous as I expected when they first announced it. I expected it to have varying sizes of glitter for some reason. Good swatch :) x

  10. LOVE this polish! Its my favorite from the collection.

    As for the blackberries, you should trim them at the end of summer after they have made fruit. And a trellis is key. If the canes touch the ground they will put down roots and then take over.

    1. Yay, I'm glad you love this one! :D
      Hehe I don't think we can wait until end of summer. They are just spreading so fast and it's growing into our plants and trees. We're just going to remove it section by section and see how that works out. :-)
