Swatch: Nicole by OPI Gumdrops Candy Is Dandy

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.

The first one that I got from the collection is Candy is Dandy. It's a cross between a barbie pink and a baby pink; with tiny bits of glitter, as well as hexagon glitters.

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.

  2. Pink and sparkles always look great together! :)

  3. That's pretty. I don't like the Nicole by OPI's glitter polishes too much usually. The 1s I bought anyway. The bottles dry up real quick.

    1. I'm not a big fan of glitter polishes, mainly because of the hassle when it comes to removing the glitter. Never had a problem with the glitter polishes from Nicole by OPI drying out though, only the crackle.

  4. That is so cute!! Love how sparkly it is :)
