Satisfy your sweet tooth with the new, limited edition Gumdrops collection now available from Nicole by OPI.
The shades in this new group have a matte texture and a lot of sparkle to give it a candy-coated look. This has been my go-to collection this summer because of its bright colours, shiny texture, and its ability to hide my nail flaws well.
My favorite time to wear this collection is during the day because of how much they shine in the sunlight. Because the colour is matted, the whole nail doesn’t shine and it draws more attention to the sparkles that look like sugar for nails that are good enough to eat.
The Gumdrops Collection is available in eight different, very sweet shades.
From left to right:
Candy is Dandy – This light pink is the epitome of the collection. It looks so sweet, it makes my nails shine and my sweet tooth ache. In addition to the little sparkle particles, there are some larger sparkles thrown in… just because they can.
My Cherry Amour – One of my favorites in the collection. This magenta packs a sugary punch and looks great on.
A-Nise Treat – I love this black polish. It says ‘sweet but sophisticated’ and is a really fun polish to wear for an evening out.
That’s What I Mint – I fun, cool green shade that turns heads and freshens breath (only part of that sentence is true).
I Lilac Gumdrops – A light purple shade that is subtle and gorgeous. I find that I use three coats of this shade and it really stands out nicely.
Cinna-man of my Dreams – This is a nice shade for the fall. I love wearing spice colours as the weather starts to drop. This shade will warm up any night.
Lemon Lolly – Definitely the brightest polish of the bunch. Make a bod statement with this citrus shade.
Blue-berry Sweet On You – A beautiful blue shade that stands out in a crowd.
To get the whole effect of the Gumdrops shades, you SHOULD NOT finish with a top coat. Adding a top coat will take away the matte textured finish.
This limited edition collection is available for $10.99 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean Coutu, Loblaw, and London Drug (August 2013).
