Red Dog Designs: The Mouse Collection!

Press Sample

Good afternoon, readers! We interrupt your regularly scheduled program of Digit-al Dozen September Spectacular to bring you a brand new, and adorable, collection launching from Red Dog Designs this afternoon!!

The Mouse Collection consists of 6 polishes, 3 of each Mickey and Minnie Mouse themed! I have all 6 to share with you today and some fun nail art to go with each polish!

Before we start, let me say a few things about the collection as a whole. Mickey head shaped glitters, as with any bigger glitter, are heavier and will sometimes stick to the sides of the bottles during shipment as well as hang out in the bottom half of the bottle. All it takes is an easy shake with the bottle upside down for a few seconds, as well as sometimes using a toothpick to scrape down the sides before application. Also, I was sent mini sample sized bottles to share with you so the number of coats may be less if you are using a full sized bottle with regular brush. Bigger bottles/brushes means that you will probably get more glitter than I did using the small brushes and bottles. I did place some of the bigger glitters.


Let's start with the Mickey Mouse side of the collection. I absolutely LOVE the names and how the glitters came together after seeing the inspirations.

Moustasia is "mouse shaped silver holo glitters, mixed with various sized hex glitters in red, blue, and silver, holo silver stars and moons, sprinkled with micro holo glitter in a dark blue jelly base. I'm showing three coats below with top coat. The inspiration behind this one is the movie, Fantasia, so I thought a wizard hat would be a good nail art accent with the Mickey head I painted.









M-I-C-K-E-Y is "mouse shaped silver holo glitters, mixed with various sized hex glitters in red, black,  white, and yellow, sprinked with micro holo glitter in a clear base." I am showing 2 coats below with top coat over Sinful Colors Cool Gray. I love how well this glitter captures every part of Mickey! I couldn't help but pair it with Mickey's adorable red shorts!








The final Mickey inspired polish is called Pop Art Mickey. It is described as "mouse shaped silver holo glitters, mixed with neon pink and neon green stars, and various sized hex and square glitters in neon pink, neon green, neon blue and red, sprinkled with micro holo glitter in a clear base." I've layered two coats over a plain black creme with top coat. I love how it made the neons pop and the holo glitter sparkle. I've paired it with some simple pop art inspired nail art as well in coordinating colors.

Onto the Minnie Mouse inspired polishes! 

Minnie's Tulips is described as "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've layered two coats below with top coat over Illamasqua Nomad. There was a ton of glitter coming out on this one and I almost went with just one coat on each nail instead of two. Of course I did some tulips with Minnie for the accent nails.









Minnie's Bouquet is "mouse shaped silver holo glitters, mixed with a various 'bouquet' of girly shapes--flowers, butterflies, hearts, and stars, along with various sized hex, square, micro bar glitters in a mix of purple and silver shades -- matte, metallic, and even iridescent glitters, sprinkled with micro holo glitter in a clear base." This polish is packed with different shapes of glitters and I love it! I chose to layer 2 coats over Elevation polish Tavan Bogd with top coat for the pictures below. I even did my own version of a bouquet for the accent nail! (Although it seems in my late night photo session that I forgot to take a close up shot of the bouquet itself.)







The final polish of The Mouse Collection is called Minnie's Party Dress! It is described as "mouse shaped silver holo glitters, mixed with white dots and micro holo glitter in a hot pink jelly base." Both the dots and mickey shaped glitters are heavy in this polish so I recommend turning the bottle upside down before application like I said in the beginning of this post. I love how simple this polish is! I tried to do an accent nail of the pink and white polka dot dress that I've seen in pictures on Minnie! (I also can't find a close up shot of the dress nail either, so I guess I forgot LOL).







Well, there you have it! 6 fun new Mouse inspired glitters by Red Dog Designs for you! Guess what? These go live at 5pm EST TONIGHT! That's about an hour and a half from now. Made the post just in time, huh?

  14. Hi! My favorite of these polishes is Minnie's Party Dress! Your post had me clicking the link to Red Dog but, bummer, they're sold out. The nail art you created to go with the polishes are just fantastic. I fell in love with the accent nail you did as an homage to Minnie's pink and white polka dot dress. Please...can you tell me what polishes you used for that one nail? It is so adorable! Thank you in advance! Delphi Michaels

    1. Hi...I just came back today and admired all over again the ring fingernail you created to go with Red Dog Design's Minnie's Party Dress. Specifically, I'd love to know the pink color you used. It's also the same pink you used in Minnie's head bow. Thank you.

    2. Gosh I am SO SORRY~! I could have sworn I came and replied way back when you first commented. It's the pink from the Illamasqua UV polishes. Ouija :)

  17. OMG THANK YOU for posting this!!! Not only are your designs magical but I ran to buy the whole set! Disney has been a part of my entire life, starting when my grandfather helped build Disney World (I got to go before the park opened). I've been more than I can count, love all the movies and I probably have mouse shaped blood cells LOL. I've been DYING to find mouse shaped glitter ever since the OPI collections came out (but no mouse shaped glitter). I went pin crazy with this post ;) Brava!!
