Fizzy French - OPI Coca-Cola Nail Art


When I first heard about the OPI and Coca Cola collaboration, I thought it was an unusual pairing. I mean, nail polish and soda? But now that I've had a chance to play with the polishes, I can say that as long as collections like this one keep coming out, I don't care if OPI partners with aliens from the moon. The lacquers are all wonderful and I can see the direct relation between the shades and the sodas they are meant to represent.

I created this simple Fizzy French tip look using two polishes from the Coca-Cola by OPI collection.


How can you modify a French tip when you're using soda-inspired polishes? Add some carbonation, of course!

I started by using large dots to vaguely follow the tips of my nails, which reinforced the faux-French effect. Once I was happy with the tips, I added more small dots floating away from them. There you have it: instant carbonation! Seriously, this nail art takes almost no time at all. All you need is a dotting tool and five minutes.

Shades used:
OPI Coca-Cola Red - Two coats shown, one coat needed. Great red.
OPI My Signature is "DC" - Highly pigmented and beautiful silver.


What do you think of this look? Will you be picking up any of the Coca-Cola by OPI lacquers?

Coca-Cola by OPI is available now in professional salons like Beauty Brands, ULTA, Trade Secret, and more.

  4. I love this! I've done dot french tips before, but not with such big and merged dots. I'm totally going to try it soon!

  6. Sarah, lovely nail art, as always. You've managed to symbolically illustrate the "pop" (as we call soda in the Midwest) concept. I'm eagerly anticipating the OPI/Mustang 50th anniversary collection!

    Very cute! This collection is soooo dope, and I love that there are 9 shades so I can mix and match and have endless combinations for nail art, accent nails, french, what have you! I am in total awe of this collection, OPI did an amazing job with formulas and colors. Seriously, can't say enough good things about it!
