OPI Holland Collection Spring 2012 Swatches and Review

Yep, here they are, OPI's new collection for Spring 2012. 12 gorgeous colors that represent Holland, or at least the names represent Holland :)

There are brights, creams, nudes, and shimmers and well.....Oh..just look for yourself, LOL :)

First Up...

"Red Lights Ahead...Where?"
 2 coats, no top coat

Beautiful coral based red creme. Nice and bright and perfect for spring :)

"A Roll In The Hague"
2 coats, no top coat

Love this orange! Went on nicely, opaque in 2 coats, no complaints from me :)

"Kiss Me On My Tulips"
2 Coats, no top coat

My favorite name in the entire collection...LOL!!! Great hot pink creme...emphasis on HOT!!!!!

"Pedal Faster Suzi"
3 coats, no top coat

Not a favorite of mine, and it too 3 coats to get this opaque, at least for me! The shimmer in this is very pretty, and I love how the pink leans lavender...just not my kind of color!

"Gouda Gouda Two Shoes"
2 coats, no top coat

I call this a brick rose rust shimmer...yeah I threw it all in there..LOL.  I like how this one has very slight shimmer, hidden within, nice!

"Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?"
2 Coats, no top coat

This color reminds me of clam chowder..LOL! This is your basic nude cream, nice in 2 coats, perfect as "underwear" or just when you want a color you can wear all week and will show minimal tip wear or chips! Perfect palette cleanser :)

"Thanks A Windmillion"
2 Coats, no top coat

Oh I soooo did not think I was going to love this color, but I do! Great "antiquey" sea green! So pretty! So easy, so loving this one!!!!

And now for the 2 colors that look the most alike...but actually are not ALIKE!

Left to right: "I Have A Herring Problem" and "I Don't Give A Rotterdam!"

"I Have A Herring Problem!"
2 coats, no top coat

I love this blue sea green shimmer, it is a winner!

"I Don't Give A Rotterdam!"
2 coats, no top coat

Steal blue periwinkle shimmer is a MUST!!! Do you hear me..A must! and I love the fine dark specks in it! Love!!!!

"Wooden Shoe Like To Know?"
2 Coats, no top coat

Mmmm... milk chocolate shimmer, this one isn't half bad. I saw the bottle and thought, "No Way", but on my hands, I'm lovin it! Application was easy, no issues here!

"Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI?"
2 Coats, no top coat

Hidden shimmer is a bright grape/plum purple base, perfect for Spring. I can not wait till I get this on my toes!

2 Coats, no top coat

This is the only polish in the bunch I was disappointed with, I still have some bald spots at 2 coats, and I tried to avoid the brush strokes, but no can do! I love the color, and I love the name, and I wanted to love this.  But those brush strokes, give me nightmares!

Phew..did I get them all? LOL :)

Overall the formula was great, no complaints. All dried nicely, and applied very well.  I need to go thru my stash and see if any of these have dupes ( I think there may be a couple), but overall I'm pretty pleased!

My favorites"Thanks A Windmillion", "I Have A Herring Problem", "I Don;t Give A Rotterdam!", and "A Roll In The Hague"
