Red Dog Designs The Mouse Collection

I interrupt your regular scheduled program to show you AWESOME MOUSE SHAPED GLITTER POLISH!   Squeeeeeee!  I know these are bursting on the scene right now and I am just beyond excited to have these Red Dog Design creations, they are brilliant!  These polishes are from The Mouse Collection and it consists of 3 Mickey and 3 Minnie themed polishes.  Gina puts so much thought into each polish and the combinations of color, glitter, shimmer and holo.  The Mouse Collection is a perfect show of her creativity.  You can purchase The Mouse Collection this Friday (9/13/13) at 5:00 pm EST.  The full sized bottles are $10 each.  You can also follow Red Dog Designs on Facebook and Instagram (reddogdesigns).  Enough talking…let's look at the polish! 

*PRESS SAMPLE*

Up first I have Minnie's Tulips.  A beautiful blend of "mouse shaped silver holo glitters, mixed with various sized hex glitters in pink holo and rose copper, sprinkled with micro holo glitter in a clear base."  I used 2 coats of Minnie's Tulips over 2 coats of Barry M Dragon, a beautiful pink creme with subtle shimmer and a jelly-shine finish.  Minnie's Tulips went on very nicely, lots of glitter came out and it spread well on my nails.  I did have to assist some of the mouse glitters out because they are heavier than other glitter.  Also the mini brush just didn't want to grab them.  I suspect that the regular sized bottle/brush will fare better at catching the mouse.  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.

This is M-I-C-K-E-Y.  As you can see it's inspired by the famous mouse himself, but in a deconstructed form.  You have the red shorts, yellow shoes, white buttons and of course black for the ears!  M-I-C-K-E-Y is made up of "mouse shaped silver holo glitters, mixed with various sized hex glitters in red, black, white and yellow, sprinkled with micro holo glitter in a clear base."  I really love this one.  It captures Mickey spot on.  The formula and application were great!  Lots of glitter came out and laid flat on my nails.  Again I had to help the mouse glitters out of the bottle, but I attribute it to the mini bottle size and brush.  The mouse glitters floated freely in the base (I.E. were not stuck to the insides of the bottle wall). and were plentiful.  I used 3 coats of M-I-C-K-E-Y over 2 coats of OPI My Pointe Exactly, a sheer grey jelly polish.  I chose this as the base because I wanted the glitters to stand out on their own.  I think it would also look nice over blue!  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.

Last but not least we have Pop Art Mickey.  I love this one.  I am a born-again fan of neons and I've been buying them up like crazy all summer.  The good news is neon is still popular this Fall and it's getting paired with nudes and greys in all the fashion magazines so don't be afraid to rock neon nails right now!  Gina says Pop Art Mickey is full of "mouse shaped silver holo glitters, mixed with neon pink and neon green stars and various sized hex glitters in neon pink, neon green, neon blue and red, sprinkled with micro holo glitter in a clear base." I love the color combination here, it's fun and vibrant! I almost wore this over a nude shade then decided against it.  I layered 2 coats of Pop Art Mickey over 3 coats of one-off Red Dog yellow holo.  A good amount of glitter came out with each brush dip.  The base on this one is plentiful so be sure to wipe any excess off your brush.  I assisted mouse glitter out of this one (again - small bottle, small brush) but also had a few come out on their own here.  The glitters laid flat against my nails.  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
