We Must Find a Cure! 31 Days of Pink...(Day 1)

12:23 AM

October 1st marks the beginning of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) and to show my support, I am participating in a blog hop with several other bloggers. So for the month of October, Shades of Beauty, Inc is going pink. I will make every attempt to post a different pint polish each day.  

But first a few facts that just may save a life.  Ladies AND Men, please do your monthly self breast exams:

  • Every 2 minutes, there is a new breast cancer diagnosis.
  • Every 14 minutes, a life is lost to the disease.
  • Over 40,000 people will die this year; about 400 of them will be men.
  • 85% of all diagnoses have no family history.
  • 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between ages 40 and 55.
Now on to the pink polish of the day...

For my first pink I wanted to start with a little more than just 1 pink polish so today, I am sharing with you, the OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection that was released during the early summer of 2012.

This was a collection of four shades, each indicative of that classic first lady of Disney, Minnie Mouse.  They included:

  • Nothin’ Mousie ‘Bout It
  • I’m All Ears
  • If You Moust You Moust
  • The Color of Minnie
Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It - It's a ultra pink sheer glass flecked shimmer with heart-shape confetti (for lack of a better term). This polish, while it can be worn alone is best as a topper. The hearts are difficult to apply and instead of being able to "polish" them on, I need to almost pat or dot them on. In this picture, I am wearing 3 coats.

Next, is I'm All Ears, a raspberry pink, with a pinky-blue shimmer. While not as sheer as Nothin’ Mousie ‘Bout It, even after 3 coats, I still had visible nail line.

My favorite in the collection, is If You Moust You Moust. A beautiful blue based pink creme. I surprisingly had some streaking with this formula. It was almost a cross between a creme and a jelly. This is 2 coats.

Last in this collection is the classic Minnie Mouse red, called The Color of Minnie.  It is a bright red with a pink & blue iridescent shimmer. As pictured, this is 2 coats.

I believe that the OPI Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection was a limited edition collection, but maybe they can still be found it in some of your local retailers and online shops.  Living only 2.5 hours from Disney World, I need to go visit Minnie and Mickey more often. I don't think anyone ever outgrows Disney.  Which is your favorite Disney character?

Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
