Nice Stems! A Summer OPI collection

 You can imagine my excitement when I found out OPI was releasing a summer collections called Nice Stems that contained four pink polishes.
 {from left to right: Play in the Peonies, Be a Dahlia Wont you?, I Lily Love You and Come to Poppy}

 {Play in the Peonies}
Play in the Peonies is a white with just a touch of pink and pearl luster I absolutely adore peonies as they are one of my favorite flowers. I especially love the soft pink hue that they have. I was expecting more out of this shade and wish it had more pink in it as opposed to the white.

 {Be a Dahlia Wont you?}
Be a Dahlia Wont you? is a  a bright fuchsia with flecks of glassy glitter pieces. Because of the flecks of glassy glitter I found it extremely hard to capture this shade. Again this was not a color that i would really associate with a Dahlia.

 {I Lily Love You}
 I Lily Love You is a dainty pink multi colored glitter with gold confetti pieces. To me it seemed like a brighter version of Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night". I think it's kind of pretty and definitely a dainty shade for a little girl.


{Come to Poppy}
Come to Poppy is a pinky coral hue and is my favorite color in the collection. This lacquer is more of a pink than an orange where as the actual flower is more of an orange.

My thoughts on the collection
While this collection is very feminine I felt like it was lacking. When I found out it was going to be based on some of my favorite flowers I was expecting some gorgeous pinks with a great coral/orange thrown in. Instead it was a collection that lacked the wow factor and contained a lot of pearl, glass flecks and glitter. For people who are not polished pink girls this collection may be for you, however I am a pink girl and just felt like the entire collection left me hanging.

What do you think of this collection?

  10. I'm a huge fan of pink nailpolishes, usually the brighter the better. In this case, I'm drawn to the peony shade. 1) It's my favorite flower 2) It's so classy looking!

  13. I agree with most everyone here, Come to Poppy is by far the best. The color is vivid and a really nice tone. Maybe not exactly the poppy color (I agree with you, it needs to be more orangey) but it's still pretty.
