Opi's Magazine Cover Mouse

Hi everyone!

Just a quick swatch today of the gorgeous Magazine Cover Mouse by OPI. Which is a red polish, so great for a simple Valentine's Day manicure as well ;)

This is, as you can see, a liquid sand polish and
was limited edition - it was part of the Couture De Minnie collection in 2013.

This polish applies very good, it's a bit gritty with the first coat but the second coat evens everything out.

It also lasts for quite long on my nails without tip wear - about 3 days.

This is a textured polish and it dries matte with shiny sparkles in it. You are not supposed to use a topcoat since this effect would then vanish.

However, I applied a top coat to see what it would look like - my nails are like Christmas tree decorations!

Pictures of Magazine Cover Mouse with shiny topcoat are shown below:

In my pictures it seems like the polish (with topcoat) has a very gritty texture, but in real life it really doesn't look so gritty - my camera just decided to add some extra texture here... Maybe it's the artificial lighting I'm using, I don't know.

So, that's it! A quick post for today :)

Do you have any of the Couture De Minnie polishes? I only have this one - it was my first textured polish - and I'm really happy with it :)

Thanks for reading!


  1. That is a beautiful red! I hope you had a lovely Valentine's day!

    1. Thank you! I had a great day yesterday, hope you had a nice Valentine's Day too! :)

  2. I love this red, perfect for V day :)

  3. This is a beautiful red, it looks great on you! I love the texture :) I always end up applying top coat to textured polishes because it feels so strange to wear polish without top coat!

    1. Thank you! Haha, I get what you mean about the top coat! It also just makes every polish shine ten times brighter - the more shine the merrier right? :)

  4. It's so gard to noy buy anything, right?:) What did you get?:)
    Amazing color! Love textured polishes:)

    1. It's reeaally hard to not buy anything yes! When I'm in a store with nail polish, I buy something almost every time even though I said to myself I would just go take a look and not buy things :) I got: Burgundy Kiss and Knitted Gold (Brocades collection) from Maybelline Color Show! And you'll be happy with the next one since you love textured polishes: I also got Candy Floss Cutie by Rimmel :)
      But it's my birthday soon so I'm going to pretend all these polishes are an early birthday present from myself to myself haha :)
