OPI Nice Stems! Summer 2011 Collection

Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope you all have had a great, relaxing day. Now there is only one more day until depressing! Well, hopefully my post today well make up for weekends being so stinkin' short! Today I have for you the rest of the OPI Nice Stems! Summer 2011 Collection. There are 4 colors in this collection which include Be A Dahlia Won't You, Come To Poppy, Play The Peonies and I Lily Love You. I did an earlier post about Be A Dahlia Won't You. If you would like to see photos and my review of that color, click here. I actually got Be A Dahlia Won't You in a full size bottle when I was home in FL. After that, I decided I needed all of the colors, so luckily I found a set of minis at Trade Secret! First, I have a photo of the box the set came in!

Isn't it cute?!?! I just love minis! I know it sounds weird, but I love using the small brushes!

Anywho, first up is Come To Poppy. This is a coral, shimmery polish and I love it! It was so easy to apply and the formula was great! The following photos are 2 coats of Come To Poppy with a Sally Hansen Insta Dri top coat.

I would like to add that for some reason my camera is making this color look way more pink than it really is. The color is definitely coral, so don't let my junky camera trick you! ;o)

Next up is Play The Peonies. Now, I have to be honest...I really don't like this color at all. It is an extremely light, shimmery pink that looks almost white. The first reason why I don't like it is because it made me look extra pale. :o( Next, I'm really not sure if it was because of the mini brush size or not, but it took me 4 coats to get this color completely opaque. I mean, 4 coats is ridiculous! Plus, when I started putting extra coats on, the polish started pulling and making bald spots, so I had to wait a little bit in between each coat. That usually would not bother me that much if the color is worth it in the end. However, in my opinion, this color was not worth all of the work. Sorry folks! The following photos are 4 coats of Play The Peonies with SH top coat. 

Finally, I have I Lily Love You. This is a glitter polish in a light pink base. This polish had small square glitter and some different sized jagged glitter in it as well. I was actually really surprised when I put this on, because it is not as pink as I thought it would be. The glitter in this actually flashes blue, green, orange and's awesome! I think the next time I wear it I'm going to try to layer it over a dark blue or black. I bet it will be amazing! The following photos are 2 coats of I Lily Love You layered over my 4 coats of Play The Peonies (can you tell I'm still irritated???). 

Well, that's it for today. Whew! This was kind of a long post, but I hope you all enjoyed it!!! BTW, if you are interested in purchasing OPI you can find it at Ulta, JC Penny, Dillard's, Trade Secret and most nails salons.
