Nicole by OPI Gumdrops

Happy Labour Day Weekend!

Today I have two of the limited edition Gumdrops from Nicole by OPI that were exclusive to Shoppers Drug Mart (in Canada)! Launched this summer, Gumdrops feature a sugar-like finish that dry matte but shimmer with tiny glitter particles. Add candy colours and Gumdrops are like little sugar candies on your nails.

First up, Lemon Lolly, a bright, lemon-hued Gumdrop with a jelly texture and gold shimmer that dries a little sheer, but is absolutely bright, gorgeous and summery! I personally loved Lemon Lolly, but I know yellow is not for everyone. Lemon Lolly would still be a gorgeous accent or nail art polish. I used two coats for the photo below:

And Lemon Lolly, shiny with top coat:

The second Shoppers Drug Mart exclusive polish is That’s What I Mint, an oddly-named shade as it’s not mint at all, but a blue-teal base with blue and gold glitter. This dried to an amazing, sparkly finish, but comes off looking slightly shiny in my photo. I used two coats for the swatches:

And finally, shiny:

Nicole by OPI Gumdrops should always be worn without top coat to achieve the textured finish, but it’s always nice to see the sparkle come alive in a different way with top coat!

Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquers and Nail Treatments contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde. Nicole by OPI formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and salon-quality. In Canada, these shades are available for $10.99 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, Jean Coutu, Loblaw, and London Drug.

Have you snagged either of these exclusives yet? Have you spotted them in the US?

    Both of these are stunners, but I think I prefer Lemon Lolly, especially with topcoat 🙂

    • Don’t you love how they are almost like two different polishes with top coat on?
