Wow, how long has it been since I’ve done a nail post? I love painting my nails and everything but it’s a lot of work to paint them several colours for a collection review! But the OPI California Dreaming Summer 2017 collection was too good to pass up on.

My Glittery Thoughts:
Although this is a summer collection, I think a lot of these polishes can easily work in the fall/winter. Santa Monica Beach Peach reminds me of the colour of a pumpkin and shades like This is Not Whine Country and To the Mouse House We Go! are great shades to wear in the cooler months. A couple of the polish formulas were a bit sheer with the shades To the Mouse House We Go! and This is Not Whine Country, so it took a bit more polish to make them more opaque, while the other shades were very smooth and opaque with just one coat. I think this collection is an interesting mix of shades and not exactly what I would picture a California collection to be comprised of but I still enjoy a lot of the colours. I like that they added a couple metallic shades but it would’ve been nice to maybe see something with a bit of sparkle to emulate the twinkling Hollywood lights. Don’t you think?! Or some greens and blues would’ve been nice to see to represent the luscious palm trees and ocean but that’s just my opinion. If you like pinks, oranges and nudes, you will love what California Dreaming has to offer.
