Nice Stems! by OPI Revamps Nails with Vibrant Pink Hues for Summer 2011
Stop and see the flowers with summer’s Nice Stems! by OPI, a limited edition collection featuring four new nail lacquers in stunning shades of pink. With whimsical names based on their floral inspirations, these vibrant, flirty colors range from pale, frosty pink to rich fuchsia. Nice Stems! offers fingers and toes a perfectly pink shade for all of summer’s looks.
“These vibrant, feminine hues complement 60’s ladylike fashions, 70’s glam looks, and bold color-blocking, which are the season’s staples,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The Nice Stems! collection also offers an interesting contrast and feminine accent to the punk and biker looks on the runways.”
Nice Stems! by OPI shades include:
Play the PeoniesWe’d put our money on this lovely soft-pink.

I Lily Love YouFall head over heels with this light pink sparkle.“Using different micas and glitters can give lacquer a 3-dimensional look,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “I Lily Love You is a glitter coat that can be layered over any of the other three shades to add a bright sparkle; or, it can be worn on its own for a subtle tint of pink with strands of glitter.”
The Nice Stems! Nail Lacquers by OPI contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.
This limited edition Nice Stems! collection will be available beginning June 2011 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

After seeing swatches of Dior Rock Coat, I was very excited to get my hands on it. Rock Coat transforms the base polish into something really special and different!
I decided to try it over a lighter color first, China Glaze White Cap a frosty white with golden micro glitter. My initial results were less than great! Rock Coat is pretty hard to use, it can go on uneven and streaky. And the brush is too clunky and doesn't fit my nail beds well at all.
The color results of this mash up (after 2 coats of Rock Coat) were actually a very pretty bronze color. However, the finish was very uneven and I couldn't get close to my cuticle edge so I had a strip of White Cap peeking through. Not pretty!
I ended up removing the first attempt, decanting Rock Coat into a clean OPI bottle and reapplying it all!
My results the second time around were a lot better. I applied one coat of White Cap and one coat of Rock Coat, trying to apply it as evenly as I could. I ended up with a few streaky fingers but overall much better results!
