OPI I Don’t Give A Rotterdam! Holland Collection

OPI I dont give a rotterdam alone

I dont have much time to write but I wanted to share these gorgeous swatches with you.  I present, OPI’s Holland Collection, I Don’t Give A Rotterdam!  A beautiful dusty blue/purple with micro flecks of gold shimmer.  Did that get you drooling? I thought so.

No time to waste!   Here are the photos.  What do you think?  Would you wear this color?  I featured it in my latest article on the Beauty Collection Blog:  Prom 2012:  Five Easy Ways to Dress Up Your Nails.  It was actually my favorite swatch on that post but i couldnt use it in two places at the same time.  Enjoy it over there, will ya! 😉

OPI Pedal Faster Suzi : Holland Collection

I went on a little shopping Spree at Beauty Collection last weekend and picked up some new things. Besides a new shampoo, conditioner, and leave on treatment, I got two polishes from the OPI’ s Holland Collection, Pedal Faster Suzi, and I Don’t Give A Rotterdam! …aaaaannnndd a new bottle

of INM Northern Lights Holo Top Coat that I practically out on everything.

The OPI colors are super pretty and remind me of spring. I Don’t Give A Rotterdam is a sheer lilac purples with gold/bronze micro shimmer. In some light it looks more gray to me and took 3 coats to get full coverage. I then wait a day and add another coat.

Pedal Faster Suzi is a sheer tulip pink with an almost silver shimmer micro glitter of some sort. This one also took 4 coats for full coverage in my taste which is a little much, but oh well. I decided to later add the INM Northern Lights Holo Top Coat to give its an extra pretty sparkle.

I also used Pedal Faster Suzi on my toes and then put OPI’s white crackle polish on top. And of course later some holo top coat.

What do you think of Pedal Faster Suzi? I love it! My only peeve is that it takes so many coats to. Be opaque on its own. I didn’t want to use a base color to alter it at all because it almost reminds me of a Disney princess pink that may sound cheesy but it’s really gorgeous.

Until the next swatch or review…..

You guys know Im having a makeup giveaway right?

I hope to do a swatch of them all, but for now I chose heart stencils and sephora by O.P.I’s Don’t Feed The Hand Models, Already Famous, and I Don’t Bite.

Dont Feed The Hand Models is an opaque pink beige. I only used a little

of this but imagine it needs 2 or 3 coats to be opaque. **update, this color looks nude when on toes!

I Dont Bite is a metallic purple – silver shimmer polish. Two coats are sufficient, but I couldn’t resist trying three.

I definitely need more practice with stencils. I was afraid of pulling the base polish off as I did my first try at this. I gave it a shot on my toes to see if I could do better.
