California love: OPI California Dreaming collection for summer 2017

I kinda fell in love with Los Angeles when I travelled there this past April. I feel like if there’s one state that gets the most hype, it’s definitely California.  And now, I can see why. From the beautiful palm trees to the mild weather to the ocean and just all-around good vibes, I can see why the state of California has the largest population in the United States.

To celebrate all things Cali, nail giant OPI has released a nail polish collection in honour of the sunshine state as their summer 2017 collection. OPI is actually based in California and they have released a palate of fun, flirty shades that represent all that the state has to offer, whether that’s surfing the west coast, wine tasting in Napa Valley, spending a day at Santa Monica, or taking a hike in the mountains (seriously, I would LOVE to live in California).

The OPI California Dreaming collection features 12 new shades available in both their classic formula and the long-wear Infinite Shine. Lately OPI’s collections haven’t really impressed me much, I tend to find the colours they come out with are very similar to ones they have done in the past or are drab, meh shades. Not the ones here though. There’s corals, bright pinks, berries, nudes, metallics, oranges; really a nice range of different shades promising to offer a colour for everyone.

OPI says their hero shade is Time for a Napa, a pink coral hue that would be perfect to wear on your fingers and toes, and one that would go perfect with a tan.

OPI To the Mouse House We Go! OPI Time for a Napa OPI This is Not Whine Country OPI Sweet Carmel Sunday OPI Santa Monica Beach Peach OPI Excuse Me, Big Sur! OPI Feeling Frisco OPI GPS I Love You OPI Malibu Pier Pressure OPI Me, Myselfie, and I OPI Don't Take Yosemite for Granite OPI Barking Up the Wrong Sequoia

Overall, the majority of the colours went on quite opaque after one coat, there were a couple that were a little streaky, but for the most part they went on very nicely. The only one that stained was To the Mouse House We Go!, the red shade, but I find that’s to be expected with red colours in general.

My favourite shades from the bunch are Time for a Napa (hot coral), Excuse Me, Big Sur! (rose), GPS I Love You (fuchsia pink), and Malibu Pier Pressure (hot pink). I just love a collection with lots of bright pinks, nudes, and bright coral colours, which makes this one so perfect for the summer months.

Let me know which shades you’ll be picking up from the OPI California Dreaming collection!
