Nicole by OPI Gumdrops is a new collection including six textured shades.
This limited edition collection features a shimmery sugar-like texture, glittery bits, and a matte finish. Some have more obvious glitter in them, making them stand out. Some have more of that fine sugar or sand like appearance.
The formula was pretty good for all of these. All of these covered nicely with just two coats. They dry quicker than a normal polish and do feel a bit gritty to the touch, as textured polishes will. If you want to keep the matte effect, no top coat!
Candy Is Dandy
Candy Is Dandy is a raspberry pink with different sized hex holographic glitter pieces. For me it’s the least interesting one here despite the holo glitter. I am just personally not attracted to these types of pinks, but that’s just me!
I Lilac Gumdrops
I Lilac Gumdrops is a lilac purple with irregular shaped gold glitter pieces. I love this one! I love the purple base color but also the irregular gold is great with it. It’s rather unique I think.
Blue-Berry Sweet On You
Blue-Berry Sweet On You is a medium blue that almost looks purple in some lighting, but not quite. Really nice blue shade, I like it. There aren’t any different colored glitter pieces in this one.
Cinna-Man Of My Dreams
Cinna-Man Of My Dreams is a warm pink/brown shade with pink and gold glitter. This almost looks like a duochrome in the bottle. I like it WAY more than I expected to once it was on my nails. Very flattering, rich and fall-like. Unique shade!
My Cherry Amour
My Cherry Amour is a magenta pink with micro holographic glitter pieces. This is another one I kind of thought was just “meh” looking in the bottle, but I rather like it once it’s on my nails.
A-Nise Treat is a black with silver glittery pieces. Perhaps nothing unique or ground-breaking here, but I really like it anyway. I love a good black, and a good textured black is even better.
Overall: With the name “Gumdrops” for some reason I expected lighter brighter colors, but there are three here that nearly fit into a fall-like collection. But that isn’t a bad thing, I liked them! I think the most unique ones are I Lilac Gumdrops, Cinna-Man Of My Dreams and My Cherry Amour. I also like Blue-Berry Sweet On You and A-Nise Treat though!
