OPI Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It

Hi everyone! Today's mani is from earlier this week. First I started with one coat of CND Stickey Base Coat, then two coats of China Glaze Hang-Ten Toes. HTT is a vibrant blue-based pink with a gorgeous shimmer. It dried to a satin finish, so shown below is one coat of Out the Door to make it shine. Application was effortless and dry time was surprisingly fast.

To jazz it up I added a coat of OPI Nothin' Mousie Bout It, from the Minne Mouse collection earlier this summer. NMBI is a sheer pink base filled with iridescent pink glass flecks and heart shaped glitters. The hearts are a pain in the ass to apply if you like uniformity, but I didn't have to fish too much. I stamped a bow on my ring finger with a random plate from and Kleancolor Metallic Black. Out the Door topped it all off.

As adorable as the glitter is, I picked at the hearts all day. Maybe if I had a coat of Gelous or something on top it wouldn't have bothered me so much, but those little free edges.. grrr! MUST PICK 

What do you think?? This mani was fun but I got tired of it a little faster than I thought. I'm a little more impatient now!

What bothers you most about glitter?

Cupcakes for everyone

  1. It's very cute! I cannot STAND loose glitter... if there is bar glitter that is hanging off the edge of my nail or any sort of curling glitter, I pick at it until I pick it off!

    1. pick pick pick... must be smooth! I need better topcoats, maybe.

  2. Super cute!!! I actually just got Nothin' Mousi Bout It so I'm thrilled to see it in action! :)

    I have similar reactions to polishes with sparse chunky glitter like this. I had NOPI Love Your Life which is a very close dupe, and I picked at the hearts constantly >.<

    1. It's so pretty- I really love the delicate base. I may use it and just not use the hearts, haha!
