OPI Holland Collection Part 2

Yesterday I found out that I was able to score some polishes from the Holland Collection a month early because my beauty supply place had put them out by mistake. Ooopsies. I previously picked up 6 colors and now I went back to look at the others that didn’t catch my attention right away. I purchased three of the cremes and passed on Thanks A WindMillion, Pedal Faster Suzi! and Did You ‘ear About Van Gogh? for now.

Kiss Me On My Tulips is such a pretty hot pink. Yeah, I probably have a million dupes of this, but the formula was ah-mazing! I mean, it was like butter and was perfect with two coats. Plus, is there anything more gorgeous than a beautiful creme with a shiny topcoat? It’s like patent leather if Hello Kitty ruled the world. Maybe it’s just me, but this is not the color I think of when I imagine Tulips. Even though I know it’s a pun on lips and Holland being known for tulips (of all colors), all I can think of is fields of red tulips.

A Roll In The Hague is a color that I probably wouldn’t have gravitated towards in the past, but I am totally diggin’ these orange colors. It’s almost neon. Again, the formula on this one was gorgeous and smooth. The only problem I have with it is that it stains like a mofo. You can see some of the residue on the swatches for the next polish even though I used pure acetone for removal. I haven’t done a side-by-side comparison, but this looks like a pretty darn close dupe for Essie’s Orange, It’s Obvious!

Red Lights Ahead…Where? is also a dream to apply but the color is just…meh. I mean, it’s not really exciting but it’s pretty enough.

So what do you think of these colors? Are you going to get any colors from OPI’s Holland Collection?

The Spring 2012 OPI Dutch/Holland Collection Has Landed

I was beyond happy to see that my crack dealer (beauty supply store) had the OPI Dutch/Holland Collection out on display today. I decided to get 6 of the 12 shades because those were the ones that stood out to me. There are a few others that look interesting and others that I don’t find too interesting. I will swatch the 6 shades tomorrow so check back soon! These are the colors I got:

Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI?
Wooden Shoe Like to Know?
Gouda Gouda Two Shoes
I Don’t Give a Rotterdam!
I Have Herring Problem
I am so excited about this collection and can’t wait to try the colors out. There are so many other collections that are making me go crazy with anticipation. I am definitely looking forward to China Glaze’s Magnetix Collection as well.
Anyway, stay tuned for swatches.  Bisous mes chéris!
