California's where I grew up. It was a small town in South East California, but it shaped me as a person, and I'm glad that's where I grew up. California is a colorful state from all angles, so OPI's California Dreaming collection is unsurprisingly full of bright shades! This summer collection boasts lots of pinks, corals and reds. Growing up in California, I associate the bright orange California poppy with the state, so after seeing Santa Monica Beach Peach, I knew the nail art I wanted to do.

A Poppy of Color by Nailed It @ www.blognailedit.coA Poppy of ColorI call this nail art "A Poppy of Color" and it's all drawn freehand! Apparently California poppies are popular tattoo designs, so I used tattoo sketches as inspiration and guidance for the nail art. But it was all truly inspired by the color, so let's see the swatches on their own.

Each of the swatches below is in the OPI line called Infinite Shine, which is a hybrid polish that's not a lacquer, but not a gel. Though you don't need a light to dry the polish like a gel, it wears longer and dries more quickly, unlike like a lacquer. So it's a hybrid polish. The line definitely lasts longer than a regular polish, and it definitely dries more quickly.

OPI - Barking Up the Wrong SequoiaOPI - Barking Up the Wrong SequoiaBarking Up the Wrong Sequoia (2 coats) is a sandy pink creme shade. It's a beautiful semi-nude that covers nicely but still feels feminine like some of the sheers.

OPI - Don't Take Yosemite for GraniteOPI - Don't Take Yosemite for GraniteDon't Take Yosemite for Granite (2 coats) is a dark purple-d slate grey chrome with glints of rainbow shimmer - it's more unique than it initially appears in the bottle. Plus it has the best name, hands down. OPI must've hired more dads, because the dad jokes are out of control!

OPI - Excuse Me, Big Sur!OPI - Excuse Me, Big Sur!Excuse Me, Big Sur! (2 coats) is a muted, fleshy pink creme. It's the color of my skin when I'm healing from a sunburn.

OPI - Feeling FriscoOPI - Feeling FriscoFeeling Frisco (2 coats) is a light, skin-toned beige creme. I've been wearing it on my toes, and it beautifully tans my feet in an optical illusion.

OPI - GPS I Love YouOPI - GPS I Love YouGPS I Love You (2 coats) is a bright hot pink creme, very similar to an OPI classic, Strawberry Margarita. In fact, I've held the colors up next to one another, and couldn't find a difference.

OPI - Malibu Pier PressureOPI - Malibu Pier PressureMalibu Pier Pressure (2 coats) is a hot bubblegum pink creme.

OPI - Me, Myselfie & IOPI - Me, Myselfie & IMe, Myselfie & I (2 coats) is a bright orange-coral, soft creme, though it's not a harsh bright.

OPI - Santa Monica Beach PeachOPI - Santa Monica Beach PeachSanta Monica Beach Peach (3 coats) is a tangerine peel, bright poppy orange creme. However, it is a little patchy, so I needed 3 coats for this effect.

OPI - Sweet Carmel SundayOPI - Sweet Carmel SundaySweet Carmel Sunday (2 coats) is a bronze chrome with great, full coverage.

OPI - This is Not Whine CountryOPI - This is Not Whine CountryThis is Not Whine Country (2 coats) is a very royal magenta jelly. It's meant to show the nail underneath, so I didn't layer more than 2 coats to give it the effect it wanted.

OPI - Time for a NapaOPI - Time for a NapaTime for a Napa (2 coats) is a light coral creme polish. It's beautifully warm.

OPI - To the Mouse House We Go!OPI - To the Mouse House We Go!To the Mouse House We Go! (2 coats) is the last color - a semi-sheer orange-red jelly. I like to see reds in jellies, because it's not so harsh, freshening the whole idea of a "classic red".

California Dreaming is a summer collection, but since the colors are so versatile and classic, they can be worn any time of the year. I see this collection becoming OPI staples for years to come!
