Pink Wednesday!! O.P.I Nice Stems Swatches

Happy Pink Wednesday!!

  Today I have swatches of O.P.I's latest release, Nice Stems. Inspired by flowers these Four shades are the epitome of girly without being overly dainty. These colors are bold, vibrant and perfect for Summer. Time for some Pink fun!

Be a Dahlia Won't You? Is an amazing glassflecky berry toned Pink with slight Purple flashes throughout. This is absolutely stunning and the formula is perfection. It has full coverage at Three coats. It has an advantage to being slightly sheer in that the jelly base doesn't cover up that beautiful sparkle.
With I Lilly Love You.
This is Come to Poppy. This one is a really pretty Coraly- Pink shade with a pearly finish. Have you guys noticed this Pearl trend going around? I don't have a problem with it, I find it quite delicate. This color is the perfect combination of bold and girly. This was two effortless coats.


 Here is the most sublte one of the group, Play the Peonies. This one is a very, very light cool toned Pink with a Pearly finish. This one is so delicate and girly and not me but I love it! It's very wearable and refreshing. This was Two easy coats.

 I love this combo of I Lilly Love You over  Play the Peonies. The pink jelly base in ILLL gives the base such a pretty Orchid Pink tone and the subtle sparkle makes it even more awesome.

 Here is Three coats of I Lilly Love You over naked nails. I actually kind of like the soft blush of color and how the irregular, flakie like sparkle looks like it's floating on my nails.
I really love this small group. The colors are girly but not boring. All Four colors have a great formula. There might be a dupe here but I'll have a comparison up later today. I really loved I Lilly Love You. As much as I love the colors on the nail by themselves, the second you add ILLL they become so much more special. If you love flashy Pinks you need these beauties in your collection STAT!

Which ones will you be picking up?

  12. I am going to get all of these! I can usually talk myself out of at least 1, but in the case of this collection I need them all. I am surprised at how much I am liking "Play with the peonies"...such a cool shade!

  13. Tiffany- They are very very different. The sparkle in ILLL is more irregular shaped, like flakies and a lot less dense. This is more of a layering polish where Teenage dreams is a dense glitter and a lot lighter of a Pink base. ILLL is a total must have!
