opi holland collection

I have more OPI goodness to share with y'all! This time, OPI's Holland collection:

Did you 'Ear About Van Gogh? is definitely a favorite. It's a creamy, neutral putty and looks gorgeous, even on my super pale skin. 

Gouda Gouda Two Shoes is a dark rosy pink with golden shimmer. I had to photograph this one with a white background, because my camera kept wanting it to be orange (still didn't get it quite right unfortunately). It is a little darker than the bottle would have you believe. 

Pedal Faster Suzi! is a light pink with silver shimmer and probably the girliest polish I've ever come across. Try not to let my super pink-based skin fool you, this one is super flattering on and will contrast more against anyone else's skin.

Red Lights Ahead... Where? is the one polish from this collection you must go get... right now. It's a coral red creme and just beautiful.

Thanks a Windmillion a light sea green. I was delighted when I saw it in the ads for this collection because I have no other color quite like it. I love the way it contrasts with my very pink toned skin!

I Don't Give a Rotteram is quite difficult to describe, just because it's so unique. I'd say it's a light, dusty blue with gold and silver shimmer. 

Vampsterdam is a bit out of place with all these colors but I loved it nonetheless. It's a deep plum with super fine silver frost. Dark purples are one of my go-to shades but until now I've always preferred ones without any shimmer but this one totally changed my mind. Love!

Wooden Shoe Like to Know? is a medium, chocolate brown with gold shimmer. I've purchased and flirted with the idea of wearing dark brown polish before but never worked up the nerve to apply it. This one is perfect for dipping your toes in the water of the brown polish trend.

Kiss Me on My Tulips is a hot pink creme. It's a gorgeous shade every girl should have in her collection in my opinion.

I did a bit of a double-take when I saw how similar this shade, I Have a Herring Problem, and the one I previously mentioned, I Don't Give a Rotterdam, are. This one is the darker version and my favorite of the two. 

A Roll in the Hauge is a bright orange creme and another classic I think everyone should own. This one is about as close to neon you can get without being fluorescent (in other words, I'm crazy about it!).

Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI? is a red-toned purple with golden shimmer (looks even more fabulous in sunlight). This is one I know I'll be reaching for a lot in the near future.


  1. Wow those are all such great colors! I love OPI polishes! Happy Friday! xo

  2. I love your blog & etsy shop! I just purchased Kiss Me On My Tulips, A Roll in the Hague, & Did It On 'Em based on your swatches!

  3. Thank you for showing these colors! I already have a couple picked out and can't wait to buy and wear!

  4. Oh and I totally understand what you mean about wearing brown shades. I, too, have pondered on the idea and found it...Wooden Shoe Like To Know!

  5. Wow! These are seriously great colors, especially Van Gogh and Wooden Shoes. I would never originally pick them, but they look great. On another note, Windmillion kind of looks like "jade is the new black."

  6. This is such a great set from OPI! I am going out to get Red Lights Ahead ASAP!

    xoxo lamb loves

    P.S. I am extremely jealous of your self-mani skills.

  7. Thanks for sharing. I love some of these colors, especially the red (it reminds me of another color I use to have, Don't socra-tease me) and the bright pink!

  8. Wow you were busy! These colors are all fabulous, but I'm really feeling the Red Lights Ahead. I'm going to need to pick up this color asap!

    Tartan & Sequins

  9. Oh my gosh! I spent 3 weeks in AMS this summer and love everything about that city! I must purchase some of these polishes! Thanks for breaking them all down!!
