OPI Holland Collection Spring 2012 - Swatches and Review

I was so much looking forward to this collection! I know I am a bit late with it. But there is still plenty of time because it still is spring and this is a spring collection. This time OPI takes us to Holland with some funny names, beautiful cremes and some unusual shimmers. Here are my swatches:

A ROLL IN THE HAGUE

DID YOU´EAR ABOUT VAN GOGH

DUTCH´YA JUST LOVE OPI

GOUDA GOUDA TWO SHOES

I DON´T GIVE A ROTTERDAM!

I HAVE HERRING PROBLEM

KISS ME ON MY TULIPS

PEDAL FASTER SUZI!

RED LIGHTS AHEAD...WHERE?

THANKS A WINDMILLION

VAMPSTERDAM

WOODEN SHOE LIKE TO KNOW?

Overall a very pretty collection and I like the choice of colours and finishes that we get here. They were all easy to work with and covered all in two coats except for Pedal Faster Suzi! which was three coats. One thing that made me especially happy are the two beautiful purples. I love them both. Thank you OPI...my purple collection is growing :) In fact I like a lot of them...right now I am wearing Red Lights Ahead...Where? and I also can´t wait to try the other two bright cremes. They are such a pleasure to apply!
So even though you have seen this collection a billion times I am curious about your thoughts. Let me know what are your favourites!

  3. I'd love to have them all. Only one that is not very much my favourite, is the second one (Van Gogh). The others are perfect, all of them!

  10. I don`t know if I just got a "bad bottle" or if I am doing something wrong but I just can't get a roll in the hague to apply nice enough to wear. I end up with disgusting patchy spots and it just looks really unappealing. So sad because that was the color I was most looking forward to. Sadface.

  11. Abych se přiznala, od Vampsterdamu jsem čekala víc, chtěla jsem si ho pořídit, ale podle swatchů moc nevím, co si myslet. Víc fialový, než by se mi líbilo.
    Jinak za mě nejhezčí Herring Problem, Gouda a Red Lights.
    Nicméně úžasné lakování a swatche, ostatně jako vždy. ;)

  12. so happy you desided to post this, even though it was seen and done by other bloggers.... it look great!
    do you think "red light ahead" looks like Essie: "too too hot"? or China Glaze: "hey sailor"

    i got both of them, and i am trying to compare them to "red light ahead" in my mind but just can't... would love it if you did a comparison, or just let me know your opinion...

    thank you
