Dandy Candy...

The super gorgeous Candy Mani can be a pain to take off. I love the look but sometimes I don't have to time to spend on removal. Luckily I found a just as beautiful alternative for this fabulous Friday!

Nicole by OPI Dandy Lion is a golden yellow foil with a large dose of shimmer. This shade is like wearing sunshine on your nails! Application for this shade is smooth and easy to manipulate. Two coats were used for this mani but if you plan to wear this shade alone three coats would be best.

To turn this already vibrant shade into a quick candy mani I added one coat of jelly/sorbet lacquer. OPI Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? is a juicy orange squeezed into an OPI bottle.  My photo really doesn't do it justice (the weather wouldn't cooperate).  Application is super smooth and this lacquer dries ultra glossy.

Disclosure: This lacquer was purchased by The Lacquer Factor.


  1. Love that colour!! It reminds me of glittery carrots haha.


  2. @ Ashleigh Duncan: Now I am going to always think of that color as glitter carrots lol!!
