Nicole By OPI Limited Edition Gumdrops Collection Swatches and Review

Press Sample


Nicole by OPI launches Gumdrops – six new limited edition matte texture shades designed to give nails a mouthwatering manicure.  With a “sugar-like” finish that lightly shimmers with fine glitter particles, Gumdrops features brilliant candy colored hues.

I am really loving texture polishes, and it’s no secret on my blog!

Take a look at these Nicole by OPI Gumdrops!

Cinna-Man of My Dreams:

Cinna-Man of My Dreams full

Cinna-Man of My Dreams is my favorite of the 6!  Very unique to my texture collection!  Cinna-Man of My Dreams is a deep rosy shade with coppery flecks.  This also has a subtle duochrome which is so pretty!  I used 2 coats for this mani.

I Lilac Gumdrops is a gorgeous lavender shade!  It did not look this glowy in the bottle so I was happily surprised when I put it on!  I only needed 2 coats for this mani.

This collection is really pretty and quite a few colors are completely unique to my texture collection, but especially Cinna-Man of My Dreams!  Out of all the textures I’ve tried, this one seems to have the finest grit of them all as well.  All of them had very fine glitter and 2 had larger glitters, but they all lay flat and blended in well with the rest of the fine glitters.

Nicole by OPI Gumdrops nail lacquers should always be worn without top coat to achieve the unique textured matte finish.

I love those colors! I haven’t tried any of the textured polishes yet but am anxious to do so. I’m having such a hard time deciding which one I like best so I’d have to get them all. :D

I love textures! I would say grab a few, and even if you don’t like the texture – a couple coats of top coat will solve that! I would love to hear what you end up snagging!
