OPI Holland Collection Review and Swatches

Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?  2 coats.  Neutral light beige creme. This was very opaque which surprised me.  I thought it was too runny but I will talk about the formula at the end of the post.

Thanks A Windmillion 3 coats.  Murky and green, yes please.

Red Lights Ahead...Where? 3 coats.  Bright and saturated red coral creme.  My flash washed out the rich red tone.

Kiss Me On My Tulips 3 coats.  Hot pink creme.  I wore this as a full manicure for a couple of days, got a few compliments on it :)

A Roll In The Hague 3 coats.  Radioactive bright orange creme.

Wooden Shoe Like To Know? 2 coats.  Light milky brown with pink and gold shimmer.

I Have A Herring Problem 3 coats.  Greenish blue packed with flecky golden and silver shimmer.

I Don't Give A Rotterdam! 3 coats.  A cool grey-blue with the same kind of shimmer as I Don't Give a Rotterdam!.

Dutch'ya Just Love OPI? 2 coats.  Medium purple with golden/green/pink shimmer.

Vampsterdam 3 coats.  Frosty vampy purple.  I personally am not a fan of frosts so this one doesn't excite me that much.

Gouda Gouda Two Shoes 2 coats.  Dark dusty rose with golden/pink shimmer.

Pedal Faster Suzi! 3 coats.  Pink with flecky silver shimmer.  I think I see some very fine pink shimmer in there too.

I wasn't a fan of the formula and for almost all of this collection was too thin and runny for me.  With the exception of Wooden Shoe Like to Know? and A Roll In The Hague, they were watery and hard to work with.  Thanks A Windmillion and Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh were very thin and they pooled at the cuticle and I didn't even touch it with my brush.  If you find yours to be thin like I did just slow down on the coats.  Wait a few minutes and apply slowly with thin coats, it helps. 

The 2 exceptions were just right, what I normally expect when I think OPI formula.  They weren't too thick, or too thin.  Smooth and creamy.  Perfect even.

They dried just fine and played well with my topcoat like usual.  I only wore a couple as full manicures because I disliked the application while swatching.

So all that aside, I liked the colors. I thought they were bright and vibrant, very spring-y (except Vampsterdam). It has a nice nude and I liked the different shimmery options.  My favorites were A Roll In The Hague and Gouda Gouda Two Shoes.

Sent to me for review.
