OPI Holland - The Cremes - Swatches and Review

Pin ItBecause I liked a lot of the OPI Holland collection so much, I ended up with a lot of pictures!  So I am going to break the collection down into a few posts.  Up first is the cremes.  I will tell you now that the formula on these is great.  Not a single problem color in the bunch!

OPI A Roll in the Hauge
A Roll in the Hauge is a super bright, in your face coral.  Its definitely on the red side of coral and is almost neon (but it doesn't have the neon pigment that makes polishes chalky).  I think this will look good on a lot of skin tones!

OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?
If you have had trouble in the past with nudes being too warm or too yellow, you may find that Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh? is perfect for you.

OPI Kiss Me on My Tulips
Kiss Me on My Tulips is a perfect fuchsia crème with a bit of a scandalous name.  I don’t wear pink often, but when I do, this is the shade I prefer to wear.

OPI Red Lights Ahead.... Where?
OPI Red Lights Ahead... Where?  I just don't get the name.  But that aside, this is a fun polish!  It is soft and bright at the same time.  It reads more Summer than Spring to me.  I definitely will be wearing this again soon.  It would look great as a pedi with a pair of tan sandals!

OPI Thanks a Windmillion
Thanks a Windmillion seems dupey to me, but I can’t think of one off the top of my head.  Either way it’s a gorgeous smooth green that I know I will be wearing as an NOTD soon!  Be sure to allow a little bit of extra time in between coats to prevent cuticle drag.

OPI certainly knows what they are doing when it comes to the creme formula, and they showed that off this Spring.  Even some of the shades that aren't that original are such perfection that you may find yourself buying them anyways!
