This post, along with the next two posts you'll see are scheduled ones because I'm going to be busy working on a paper that I have due tomorrow evening. That means that I won't be able to respond to any comments/emails until Friday so please bear with me. In the meantime, enjoy the posts that I have been writing over the last couple of days for you. :)
In my review/swatch post of the OPI Nice Stems Collection, I promised to make a separate post to show you the layering options that this collection has to offer, so here it is.
Keep reading for the layering swatches!

As I said in my original review post for this collection, I really love when brands add a layering polish to collections as it offers you many more options than with just the regular polishes alone. I especially like I Lily Love You because it's unique and it creates an entirely different look when layering over the other colours from the collection.
My favourite layering combination here is a toss-up between Be a Dahlia Won't You? and Play the Peonies. I think the layering over Be a Dahlia Won't You? really brings out the sparkle of the flakies while the layering over Play the Peonies brings out the iridescence of the flakies. I think some of the flakes of glitter kind of get lost in Come to Poppy so I'm not the biggest fan of that layering, but it's still nice.
I Lily Love You and the rest of the OPI Nice Stems Collection are available now for Summer 2011 through salons and professional beauty supply stores nationwide.
What's your favourite layering option from the OPI Nice Stems Collection?
