Swatch Session: O.P.I California Dreaming Swatches

Marisa Robinson OPI California Dreaming Swatches

"California dreamin' on such a winter's day."

These lyrics could not be more relevant right now! The winter chill has definitely set in Sydney and to distract myself from the cold I am wearing vibrant, bold nail polishes from the new O.P.I California Dreaming collection and daydreaming of hot sunny days and warm summer nights.

The collection is inspired by a road trip up the Cali coast and the names of each shade are as charming as ever!

I was recently sent 6 out of the 12 Nail Lacquer shades (all 12 shades also come in the Infinite Shine 2 finish) from this hot new collection and in this post I will share swatches and my first impressions.

Below are the shade names of the swatches that appear above from left to right:

Barking Up The Wrong Sequoia - Finding the perfect peach is a tall order.

Malibu Pier Pressure - This cotton candy pink has a very persuasive vibe.

Santa Monica Beach Peach - Go ahead and hit the beach, this punchy orange has your back.

To The Mouse House We Go - This magic red is for kissable lips, polka dot bows and tempting apples.

This Is Not Whine Country - The merlot the merrier I always say.

Don't Take Yosemite For Granite - Of quartz not! Everyone appreciates this shimmering slate.

For the swatches above I applied 3 coats and for my nail look I have applied two coats to achieve the perfect coverage and alternated between Malibu Pier Pressure and Santa Monica Beach Peach (below) for a fun and punchy look!

O.P.I can honestly do no wrong - the formula is fabulous, you need minimal coats for maximum coverage and the shade names are on point! I cannot wait to get more shades from this collection!

Available now from David Jones and Myer.
