OPI; Come to Poppy

Swatches & Review

Today, I have swatches of Come to Poppy from OPI's 2011 summer collection, Nice Stems. This collection came with four colors and out of the four, Come to Poppy was one of the ones I bought from it. I normally don't like bright pink colored polishes, but I felt like this was a color that was perfect for summer!
Come to Poppy is a frosty coral pink color. The formula of this nail polish was perfect! It was not too thin, or too thick. This was almost a one coater, although I put two coats in my swatches, I really could have gotten away with one coat if I used the first coat a bit thicker. It glides on smoothly and although it is some what metallic, I had no problems with it streaking or looking out of place after putting two coats on like how some polishes look like after applying. I am excited it is almost spring coming and it is perfect for not only summer, but spring!
Overall, I feel like this nail polish is one of my favorites even though I am not a big fan of pink. The color of this pink was bright, like a hot pink neon and it dried semi-matte so there might be some neon pigments in there, and I really like how it looks without top coat! It's shiny, but not too shiny. It also dried pretty fast (considering I didn't need over two coats for this). I know that this was from a past collection, however, I still see this polish around whenever I look for new polishes so if you like it, you should totally grab it!

Before removing the polish, I decided to layer Essie's Shine of the Times over it & I feel like that is such a nice combo! Flakies over a bright bold pink! What do you guys think?


  1. I had this on for valentines day (with the same essie flakies too!) and I LOVED it!

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who liked the combo! lol. Yay for experimenting with Shine of the Times!

  2. Great combination-I'm usually not into pinks but the flakies make the base color look amazing!
