Just when I thought I was so over textured polish, Nicole by OPI comes out with their Gumdrops collection and sucks me back in!! I wasn't super in love with textures in the beginning, then I kind of liked them, and now I REALLY love a select few, including this one, Nicole by OPI Cinna-man of My Dreams. Cinna-man of My Dreams reminds me of a texture version of NOPI Just Busta Mauve. It is a really unique mix of bronze and reddish-plum all rolled into one. I can not think of any dupes/even close relations for this beauty.


I used three coats of Cinna-man of My Dreams for these pictures, but I would probably just do two next time. I did three kind of out of habit. This was so easy to apply. I had no issues whatsoever. It also wasn't that hard to remove!!


Below, you can see Cinna-man with one coat of Gelous. It's pretty easy to get these smooth. They're like the sugary fine textures, not the super lumpy ones. I seriously love this polish both ways, smooth and textured!!




Base: none
Color: three coats Nicole by OPI A-nise Treat
Top: none unless otherwise indicated
Application: good (out of poor, average, good, excellent)

Nicole by OPI A-nise Treat is a black with silver glitter texture polish. The silver glitter is nicely sparkly in this one. I like the combo of matte black and sparkly silver. This is similar to Zoya Dahlia, but A-nise is darker black, less gray.


This is three coats of A-nise Treat and I did feel like I needed all three. There were some sheerer looking areas after two coats, and the third coat really evened everything out. It was pretty easy to apply though, no real issues.


Here is A-nise with one coat of Gelous. It looks so pretty this way!




Base: none
Color: two coats Nicole by OPI My Cherry Amour
Top: none unless otherwise indicated

I confused as to how exactly this happened, but I LOVE Nicole by OPI My Cherry Amour!! I am never a huge pink/red fan and considering that I wasn't too into textures, I shouldn't be loving this, but I totally am. My Cherry Amour is a red-pink with silver glitter. It is a lot more pink than it looks in the bottle. I think the texture finish looks very cool with this kind of typical nail polish color! I am having a hard time deciding whether to wear this or Cinna-man as a full mani first.


My Cherry Amour only needed two coats and applied like a dream. Sorry about the water droplets on my hands and nails, it started pouring before I could finish these pictures. And it ruined my swatching party (I wanted to swatch the other three NOPI Gumdrops polishes!).


Here is My Cherry Amour with one coat of Gelous. DELICIOUS!!! I love it this way too! (So weird, why I am into this pink color???)


Of these three polishes, I think Cinna-man of My Dreams is the most unique. I really like the other two as well, so I am quite happy with the first half of the Gumdrops collection!

The Gumdrops collection should be available now at the usual drugstores/Targets, but I know people have had some trouble finding them. I did see a full display at the "good" CVS in town, but not the other one.

By the way, we found a kitten on Satruday and we are just waiting for the rescue group (PAWS) to approve us!!! We walked into a room with 5 kittens and one tiny black male came right over to us. I picked him up and he purred for about 10 minutes! Needless to say, I hardly looked at the other kittens (although they are adorable) and I wish he could be home with us right now!

It was sooo cool to see that another lacquer addict made the connection between Cinna-Man of My Dreams & Just Busta Mauve!! :-D We must be super smart!
