Sparkly Nails - Nicole By OPI - Candy Is Dandy


I have been really busy recently and I totally forgot about my usual Sunday Manicure post. Oooops  :) I had some time to myself today though and I gave one my new nail polishes a go. I was lucky to win a bundle of amazing goodies from Daily Mix TV in their 1st Birthday Giveaway and the prize included this gorgeous, sparkly nail polish in a very girly, pink colour. 

'Candy Is Dandy' is a textured nail polish from the Nicole by OPI Gumdrops Collection and it features a very unique finish. It applies like a dream, but it dries to a gritty texture with a very sparkly finish. It contains tiny particles of glitter for a sugar-like effect and some bigger glitters for added sparkle. I used two coats of 'Candy Is Dandy' and my manicure took 1-2 minutes to dry. You don't need a top coat, because it would ruin the textured effect, so once you get the desired coverage, you are done :)

Overall, I am totally in love with this gorgeous nail polish and I am planning to wear it on Christmas Day, paired with pink lips and accessories. I usually go for red, but I think I need a change :)

Have you tried any nail polishes from the Gumdrops Collection? You can have a look at the full range here.

  1. I really love this one! I had a similar textured polish from OPI and I didn't really like the effect on my nails, it just looked smudged, but this is so so pretty. x

  3. Such a lovely pretty shade. I love the texture and sparkled finish. I have the OPI Couture De Minnie Runaway Minnies set and it includes a shade called Magazine Cover Mouse that's similar in color to Candy Is Dandy minus the big silver particles and it also has the same finish. It's going to be my Christmas nails too. Can't take my eyes off it. :)
