OPI Nice Stems! Swatches
Just got this in the mail recently. Overall, I like this set of 4 better than Femme de Cirque with the exception of the glitter top coat shade (mostly because nudes doesn’t do much for me). That, I prefer to be in a clear base like I Juggle…Men. Without further ado, here are the OPI Nice Stems! Collection swatches.
First up is Play With Peonies.
Play With Peonies is a delicate pink shade that has a frosty finish. You know what it means when I saw frost, yes….brush strokes! So out of all 4 shades in this collection, I liked this one the least. The color itself is fine, but the finish is not something I have ever liked and that’s just a personal preference. It looked better with the top coat on; it covers the evidence of the brush strokes! :) Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Next up is a shade that totally caught me by surprise, Come To Poppy.
Come To Poppy is the stunner in this collection. I didn’t think much about it based on the press release pictures here. This is a pinkish coral shade that is packed with shimmer. It seems slightly frosty, but it’s still a shimmer to me. Formula is good and went on my nails smoothly. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
The one that came short for me is Be A Dahlia Won’t You?
Don’t get me wrong, I still love this shade. I was let down slightly only because I thought that this was going to be more opaque than it is based on the press release pictures. This is a fuchsia shimmery shade that reminds me of glass fleck shades. Formula is good and went on my nails smoothly as well. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Lastly is the glittery one of the 4, I Lily Love You.
As indicated throughout the post, this shade is very sheer and seems to be meant more as a glitter top coat than anything else. This shade has multicolored round, square and flake glitter in a very light pink jelly base. Don’t let the view of the bottle fool you….it’s pretty sheer. Shown above is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Any shade that interests you?
