OPI - Holland Collection - Color with a Touch of Dutch - Spring/Summer 2012 + Swatches

OPI Launches the Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012:
First read the Press Release Below and then my thoughts on this Holland Collection.

Press Release:
OPI Launches Holland Collection for 
Spring/Summer 2012

OPI celebrates color with the Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012. 
Inspired by the country’s range of stunning shades – as seen in vivid tulips, 
windmill-dotted hillsides and bustling canals – the collection’s twelve shades offer a 
mixture of sophisticated neutrals and highly-pigmented brights.   
“Holland has a very unique, vibrant beauty to match its open-minded 
nature,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  
“Spring is the season of color, and the Holland Collection provides an array of 
pink, coral and orange hues that capture this energy. The bright lacquers are 
married with neutrals in new variations like red clay and sea green.”  
 A sequence of electric brights, including a sun-lit orange (A Roll in The 
Hague), a hot coral-red (Red Lights Ahead…Where?) and two perfectly pretty 
pinks (Kiss Me on My Tulips and a light-catching Pedal Faster Suzi!) 
complement their cooler counterparts in hues of glistening purple (Dutch ’Ya 
Just Love OPI? and Vampsterdam), while elegant neutrals (Gouda Gouda 
Two Shoes, Did You ’ear About Van Gogh? and Wooden Shoe Like to 
Know?) meet two shimmer-laced blues (I Have a Herring Problem and I Don’t 
Give a Rotterdam!) and a creamy sea green (Thanks a WindMillion).  
“Wearing these colors on fingers and toes will accessorize the season’s 
hottest trends,” remarks Suzi. “The varied palette of colors accentuates the looks 
that walked the runway, from colored pants and ladylike frocks to long, blousy- 
sleeved tops and dramatic patterns.” 

Holland by OPI includes the following shades:  
A Roll in The Hague 
Take advantage of this frisky little orange. 
Red Lights Ahead…Where? 
This coral-packed red is the hottest in the district. 
Kiss Me on My Tulips 
A smooch-worthy shade of hot pink. 
Pedal Faster Suzi! 
This pink lavender shimmer will have you “wheeling.” 
Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI? 
All of Holland hollers for this crowd-pleasing plum. 
A deep purple for a divine diva. 
Did You ’ear About Van Gogh? 
Rumor has it…this sandy bisque is a work of art. 
Thanks a WindMillion 
You totally deserve this breezy sea green. 
Wooden Shoe Like to Know? 
It’s no secret…everybody loves this shimmery chocolate-brown. 
I Have Herring Problem 
What’s that you say? I need to “sea” this shimmery green-blue? 
I Don’t Give a Rotterdam! 
This sassy steal-blue shimmer means business! 
Gouda Gouda Two Shoes 
Take a walk on the wild side with this robust rose. 
Holland Collection nail lacquer shades contain no DBP, Toluene, or 
Formaldehyde, and each includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate 
in application. 
I wouldn't consider these just to be used in Spring/Summer, I think they are more than perfect for Fall/Holidays too!
The shades/colors are just too gorgeous and I feel they would go great year-round. :)

I tried out these 4 shades:
* Wooden Shoe Like to Know? - Stunning Creamy Chocolate Brown with lightening pretty shimmer. 
* Pedal Faster Suzi! - Gorgeous baby pink sweet like candy with matching eye-catching shimmer.
* Gouda Gouda Two Shoes - Creamy pink brown slightly spicy shade with great oriental shimmer.
* Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI? - Sexy but sophisticated plum with creamy pink shimmer.

My favorite shades would be, "Wooden Shoe Like to Know?", & "Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI?".
What I love about OPI is their nail polishes are free of many harsh ingredients and they apply so easily and pure.
Check out a swatch panel at the top of the post for a look of all the shades I tried out!

Holland Collection by OPI will be available February 8, 2012, at 
Professional Salons and Spas for $10.95 CAN suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.
