Good morning, lovelies!
As promised on my Facebook page, here is the long anticipated OP Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012. This collection offers 12 new shades inspired by the country's range of stunning shades.
I've got tons to cover, so, let's jump right to it! ;)
Did You `ear About Van Gogh
The perfect nude/neutral/creme/beige/sand. Application was P-E-R-F-E-C-T in 2 coats, but I could have gotten away with 1 if I were more careful. I love how it's very work appropriate, yet chic and classy at the same time.
Pedal Faster Suzi!
A pinkish, lavender packed with tons of pink and silver shimmers. Like I've said in the past, I'm not too big on pink glitter, shimmer, or frost finishes. It just never grew on me, I guess. This was 3 coats. Who knows, maybe this pink will change the game! ;)
Kiss Me on My Tulips
An intensely pigmented blue toned pink that dries to an incredibly glossy creme finish. This was 1 generous coat. If you're looking for a good hot pink that requires little to effort to apply, this may be your new best friend!
Red Lights Ahead... Where?
An insanely pigmented red/orange, coral that also dries to a suuuper glossy finish. This baby applied like buttah and was perfect after 2 generous coats. Definitely a fun summer color to bright up any look!
A Roll in the Hague
Oh Em Freakin' Gee! :O That literally summed up how I feel about this baby! ;) I intensely pigmented ripe orange/tangerine that again, dries to an ultra glossy finish. This was 1 generous coat. A true eye catcher that will definitely make up do a double take! Another summer must have!
Gouda Gouda Two Shoes
A rosy, brown infused with ultra fine shimmers that appear more subtle on the nail. I'm gonna say it, it reminds me of something my grandma would wear! That's not a bad thing! It's a really classic color that you either appreciate or skip. This is a keeper in my book and immediately reminded me of Sinful Colors Vacation Time in certain lighting. This was 2 coats.
Wooden Shoe Like to Know
Chocolate milk is the first thing that popped into my head after applying the first coat! A gorgeous brown/taupe infused with ultra fine bronze/golden shimmer that beautifully distinct and apparent on the nail.This was 2 generous coats. YUM! ;)
Thanks a Windmillion
A dusty jade or sea foam green. Application was flawless and applied beautifully with just 1 coat. Definitely a must have from the creme half of this collection! LOVE!
I Don't Give a Rotterdam!
A dusty blue leaning towards grey, infused with ultra fine silver and gold shimmer. The formula was a bit on the thinner side of the spectrum and was opaque after 3 coats. Another work appropriate color and is very subtle on the nail.
I Have a Herring Problem
Gah! I got these two confused confused all the time! -_- Very similar, but definitely not the same. This is a darker, richer version of IDGAR, but with a slight green tint and gold/silver shimmers that is beautifully dispersed throughout the nail. This was 3 coats.
Dutch `Ya Just Love OPI?
A beautiful medium purple infused with small flecks of bronze shimmers. This was 2 flawless coats. If you want to switch up from the brighter colors in the collection, you can't go wrong with this one. Nothing but positive thoughts on this baby!
OPI did an amazing job selecting the names for this collection and this name does not disappoint! Definitely the most "vampy" color from Holland. The perfect eggplant hue with a slight silver shimmer. This was 2 generous coats.
Overall, I think OPI did a fantastic job with this collection. Not only are the nail polishes beautiful and apply beautifully, but they also have the perfect names to go along! I was thoroughly impressed with the formula on these, not too thick not too thin- buttah! ;) IMO, this collection screams Spring/Summer and are the perfect addition to your stash!
