Nicole by OPI Limited Edition Gumdrops Collection Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to show you the limited edition Gumdrops collection from Nicole by OPI!!



Cinna-man of my Dreams
I dream in shades of this warm spice pink.


Cinna-man of my Dreams is a shimmering medium burgundy texture.  The formula was smooth and very easy to apply, but is a bit thinner compared to the other texture polishes that I've used.  However, it didn't pose any problems.  I really love how shimmers of bright pink pop out in this one.
Shown above is three coats of Cinna-man of my Dreams with no top coat.

A-nise Treat
This shimmery licorice is everyone's favorite.


A-nise Treat is a shimmering black texture.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, but was also a bit on the thin side.  This would make a fantastic base for a galaxy mani, don't you think?!

Blue-berry Sweet on You
I’ll be true to this berry blue hue.


Blue-berry Sweet on You is a shimmering medium blue texture.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, and again, was a bit on the thin side.  I absolutely adore this one!!  It reminds me of denim when textured, and it positively beams with top coat!!!

Candy is Dandy
This sweet pink is my favorite guilt-free treat.


Candy is Dandy is a shimmering bright pink texture with holographic hexes.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, but was too a bit thin.  The holographic glitters really make this little beauty stand out in a crowd!

I Lilac Gumdrops
But I love this sugar-frosted lavender.


I Lilac Gumdrops is a shimmering soft purple texture.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, but was by far the thinnest of the collection.  The shimmers in this appear to be more like flakies, which really makes for a gorgeous look!

My Cherry Amour
You're the one magenta I adore.


My Cherry Amour is a dazzling deep red texture loaded with holographic particles.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, but was also a bit on the thin side.  I was so glad that I saved this one for last, because I am addicted to this polish!  It is dazzling without top coat, but shows you a whole new speed with top coat applied.


The holographic particles pop out in a way that I have never seen in a polish before.  This, combined with it's juicy finish, is fun and sultry all at once!!

I am crazy about this entire collection, and I hope you are too!!!  Happy Painting!

  6. Oh wow. I love Blue-berry Sweet on You and Candy is Dandy! Btw, what top coat did you use? I tried a top coat on my OPI liquid sand and it kind of seeped in to the polish and didn't give me the glossed look?

    1. I used Seche Vite for my top coat. Apply one coat, wait a few minutes for it to settle, then apply a second one! :)
