California Dreaming, my favorite Beach Boys song ever since I was a kid is now one of my favorite OPI Summer Collections. The sun, surf and sand but in vibrant, beachy lacquers for your nails. After seeing these colors, I instantly fell in love and you will too. So let’s check out the California Dreamin line from OPI.
I have to say this is the first collection in a long time I’ve got big hearts for from OPI. Some of the polishes lately haven’t been staying on very well or bleeding into the skin around my nails. I think I was near tears wondering if they had actually changed up their formula. Well, I’m here to say that they haven’t and these colors will not only put you in the summertime mood, but make you want to actually step outside to show off your pretty fingers and toes to everyone around you!
My California Dreamin set came in this retro metal kit which I have to say is just utterly cool with a bear and star on it, and something worth keeping. Inside the lunch kit though is what really matters. This collections has 12 different shades that explore Northern California to Wine Country and all the way from Santa Monica Pier to Disneyland.
You can pick up this set in both regular lacquer or OPI’s amazing Infinite Shine, a gel based system using a top coat, polish and shiny sealer for added longevity. But enough about that. Let’s look at the colors.
Excuse Me, Big Sur!
This is a pinky rose color is fresh and subtle. Makes me think of sandy beaches, seashells and Pina Coladas.
