Steering away from my neon madness (have I lost my mind?!), I finally painted my nails a different color! I honestly couldn't wait to the Nicole by OPI polish out once I had purchased it.
I was beyond excited to find out that CVS and Harmons had the Gumdrops collection out, because I swear the stores around me just don't get collections. Or they get them five months later then they stay in the stores for five months. There are other collections!
Gumdrops is Nicole by OPIs answer to texture polishes. I actually think the name if appropriate because the finish makes it appear as a gum drop.

Directions: Apply base and two coats of color. Do not use top coat.
Honestly, I applied a top coat over this when I swatched it on my nail wheel and it didn't do anything. It didn't change the texture, nor did it smooth it out. Then again, I only applied one top coat.
Application: Easy, but this one (as far as I know) is on the sheer side. Two coats and I can still see the free edge of my nails. I would definitely say, a third coat could be applied, or possible a thicker second coat.

|Tried to get the camera to un-focus on the nails to show the glitz.|
Overall Verdict: I love the fact that there is glitter mixed in, although it's suppose to dry to a matte finish, it STILL looks shiny and sparkly due to that little added touch. Definitely plan on getting a few others from the collection :D
Price: Varies, I purchased this for $6.94, but the price can go up to $8.00.
Availability: Anywhere that Nicole by OPI is sold.
