Hi everybody! Today I have swatches of OPI’s new collection California dreaming to share with you. At first glance I wasn’t that interested in this collection, I thought many of the shades looked too similar. But after trying them all I have to say that I’ve changed my mind. Though I think it would’ve been nice to see some other colors in the collection, like green, blue or purple.
Let’s take a look at the swatches! All swatches are painted over one coat of base coat and I’m not wearing any top coat.
Feeling frisco is a nude creme polish that covers in two coat.
Barking up the wrong Sequoia is a peach creme polish that covers in two coats.
Excuse me, big sur! is a pink peach creme polish that covers in two coats. You could maybe get away with just one thick coat depending on your application technique.
Time for a Napa is a pink coral creme polish that covers in two coats.
Malibu pier pressure is a pink creme polish that covers in two coats.
GPS I love you is a raspberry creme polish that covers in two coats.
Me, myselfie & I is a coral creme polish that covers in two coats.
Santa Monica beach peach is an orange creme polish that covers in two coats.
Don’t take Yosemite for granite is a grey metallic polish that covers in two coats.
Sweet Carmel Sunday is a bronze metallic polish that covers in two coats.
This is not whine country is a berry colored jelly polish, I’m wearing three coats. If you have shorter nails I think you will get away with two coats.
To the mouse house we go! is a red jelly polish, I’m wearing three coats and as you see my nail line is still visible.
If you want to see live swatches of this collection, be sure to check out my swatch video here! I haven’t really done anything like that before, so please let me know if you like it.
My favorite from this polish has got to be Time for a Napa, I just love that pink coral shade! And my least favorite is probably Sweet Carmel Sunday, I’m really not that into metallics in that color.
I’m working on comparison swatches, like I did with the Fiji and Breakfast at Tiffany’s collections from OPI, and I’m hoping to be able to publish that post later this week!
Please let me know in the comments what you think about this collection, and do you have a favorite shade?
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day!
