OPI Holland swatches part 1

I learned something the other day – don’t try to swatch 12 polishes in a few hours. It just won’t turn out good. But the 3 first turned out ok. All but the first is without top coat.

Pedal faster Suzi! It’s a light pink with silver specks/flecks/glitter. The super girly girl in me just loves this one. It’s just so… CUTE! This is 3 layers, it was a tiny bit sheer, but nothing I had troubles with.

I don’t give a Rotterdam! A light muted blue with the same silver particles as in pedal faster suzi. 3 layers, good formula.

I have a herring problem. Almost the same color as the prevouis but a bit more green/warm, it also has a bit more golden shimmer. 3 layers, good formula on this one as well.

OPI Holland collection spring 2012

Yesterday I attended the press release for OPIs spring collection, Holland. I just want to say that I love OPIs press releases. They always try to do a bit extra and I really appreciate that. I like when companies realise how much these things matters.

During the event I was able to get some crappy pics of the Niki Minaj collection and the two new DS polishes.

I haven’t really decided what I think about the Holland collection yet, but I guess I will when I have swatched them all. For now, here are some bottle pics!

Red lights ahead… where?

These must be the worst bottle pics I’ve ever taken. I’m ashamed. I will try to take awesome swatches later to make it up.

Mys Address Is "Hollywood" & Are We There Yet?

The last four polishes actually has some hidden shimmer in them, it’s really pretty, very subtle. As you might have noticed, some of the colors are very similar to each other. I’ve always wondered why they do that, but I guess it has to do with cold and warm hues, and thats pretty smart actually. Most people don’t buy whole collections, so if they like a color it’s perfect if they can choose one that looks good with their skin tone.

I’ve tried some of these and they are pretty standard OPI, none of the formulas has given me any trouble and are quite easy to apply. Some useless trivia: I wore Are We There Yet on my sisters wedding!
