Good evening, beauties!
I rarely post in the evening and prefer to post in the mornings/afternoon, but I could not wait to get this post live! This evening's post features the new LE Nicole by OPI Gum Drops Collection. If you, haven't heard of this collection, it's basically a textured polish with a matte finish. Here are my swatches!
I Lilac Gumdrops is a lavender base loaded with silver glitters. This applied nicely in two coats and is perfect for Spring! ILG has a medium/strong texture finish.
Blue Berry Sweet On You is a medium cornflower blue shimmer base. This one has a strong texture finish and was perfect in two coats. This was one of my favorites from the collection.
Candy is Dandy is a rosy, pink base that consists of ultra fine holo glitters and micro/small holo glitters. The image below was done in two coats. Another one of my favorites with a very strong texture finish. I noticed that this took the least time for the texture effect, which was an added bonus to an already beautiful polish!
Cinna-man of my Dreams is a burnt auburn/bronze with flecks of copper and grey. It looks very duo-chrome-ish in the bottle, but does not translate onto the nail. This was the one I was most excited to see from the Press Release and it did not disappoint! This applied evenly in two coats and offers a strong textured effect.
My Cherry Amour is a combination of burgundy/magenta that consists of ultra fine holo glitter. This one also has a strong texture finish and applied nicely in two coats. Pretty, but you all know wine/berry colors aren't my go to colors!
A-Nise Treat is a black base loaded with silver glitter. Not too much going on here, but still a beauty, nonetheless! Application was a little tricky as the formula was a bit thicker than the rest of the other polishes. Like Candy is Dandy, this offers a very strong texture effect and is opaque in two coats.
