Whew these textured matte polishes are no joke! The six sugary shades of the Nicole by OPI Gumdrops Nail Lacquer Collection are more deep in hue than the Summery and festive shades that we have been checking out from various other brands.
I Lilac Gumdrops - sugar-frosted lavender
My Cherry Amour - magenta
Candy is Dandy - sweet pink
Cinna-Man of My Dreams - warm spice pink
Blue-Berry Sweet on You - berry blue
A-Nise Treat - shimmery licorice
In all of the swatch photos I used three coats of polish to completely cover the nail. This formula dries rather quickly, but you still want to be careful for an hour or so after. I smudged up Blue-Berry pretty badly.
Must haves from this collection are My Cherry Amour, Candy is Dandy and Cinna-Man of My Dreams. They were a little different than the others and the holo touches really made them stand out.
For more information on this collection, please see the Official Press Release.
Nicole by OPI Gumdrops nail lacquers should always be worn without top coat to achieve the unique textured matte finish.
