I’ve been a big fan of OPI nail polishes for years and regularly purchase from their latest collections. Long lasting and with a large inventory of shades (which are updated frequently), it was pretty much a dead-cert that I would be all over OPI‘s website when their latest collection California Dreaming was released a few weeks ago.
With 12 brand new shades, all in warm tones that are perfect for summer, I knew I’d have a tough time choosing my favourites! Ideally I would love to purchase the entire collection, however that would cost me a small fortune (as they release new collections every few months) and I prefer to be selective. What shades will I get the most wear from? This is something I remind myself every time I scour their online site.
I’ve recently decided I’m loving reds and corals again, so this collection couldn’t have landed at a better time for me. The California Dreaming shades are described on OPI’s website: “from cotton candy pinks and peachy nudes, to rich burgundies and summer corals, there is a summer shade for everyone”.
I decided on the following 5 shades:
To The Mouse House We Go
A really lovely bright red
Me, Myselfie & I
A bold and summery warm coral
Excuse Me, Big Sur
Rose Pink and beautiful, classic and pretty
Time For A Napa
One of the best pinky coral shades I’ve ever tried
Barking Up The Wrong Sequoia
Peachy and perfect!
Of course, OPI have done it again. I love each and every one of the shades I chose and after trying these out, I’m also tempted by a few others including Malibu Pier Pressure and Santa Monica Beach Peach (they look soooo nice!)
If you have tried any of the shades I purchased, any other shades from the collection or you have something else you’d recommend (either OPI or another brand) I would love to read your comments.
