OPI Holland - The Shimmers - Swatches and Review

Pin It
I have the last of the OPI Holland collection for you in this post.  I am almost sad it's my last one!  The formula on these were great, once again not a problem polish to be found!  Some of the shades may not be my taste, but they were still a dream to apply.

OPI Pedal Faster Suzi!
Pedal Faster Suzi rests on the line between pink and lilac.  It has a gorgeous silver shimmer!  I really really really wanted to like it, but the shade did not work with my skin tone!

OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes
Gouda Gouda Two Shoes is a brick red creme with gold shimmer.  It is definitely a shade I can see other people wearing but not myself.

OPI Vampsterdam
Vampsterdam is a vampy shimmer.  It reminds me a lot of some of my older OPI’s… kinda like Have You Seen My Limo, but without the duochrome.  Indoors it was a deep burgundy, but outside in the sunlight it appeared much more purple.  It was a little streaky and required 3 coats to be even.

OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know?
Wooden Shoe Like to Know? is a very interesting shade of brown with copper shimmer.  If I was into browns, I would totally be into this polish... but I'm not.

OPI Dutch-Ya Just Love OPI?

Dutch-Ya Just Love OPI is a medium red-based purple with a pink shimmer.  This one really shines in the sunlight!  There is a Zoya out there that is similar to Dutch-Ya Just Love OPI,  You can see a great comparison Cris did here.  Right now I will stick with the OPI, since I don't have to use a special base and top coat like you do with the Zoya.
