OPI Dutch Ya Just Love OPI?

I absolutely craveddd the Holland Collection the minute I first saw OPI's press release.  The colors were just so bright, happy, and gentle and while I've never been to the Netherlands, reminded me of all the tulips that Holland is known for.


Dutch Ya Just Love OPI? is the first Holland polish I tried out.  In natural light, as you can see in the first picture, is a slightly dusty red-based purple.  It doesn't look super unique until you catch it in the sun or flash when all the bronze and gold hidden shimmer comes out to play.  For those polish purists out there (like myself), this is a really great staple purple that also has a bite.


I thought that this would only be a two coater, but oddly enough I wasn't satisfied with the coverage or depth of this polish in just two coats.  This is three coats.



I'm quite a fan of this shimmer, although to be completely honest, I wish it saturated the purple a little bit more.  But I do love the tone of this purple and think it's a really great transition polish to wear in the winter to spring months.


What do you think of Dutch Ya Just Love OPI?  Over-hyped basic purple or a real gem?

  5. It's funny how uncommon copper shimmers are.  They really add another dimension to a polish that silver and gold just don't.

  6. Yeah...it is a bit of a pass, but an interesting shade of purple that I find myself gravitating too.  Thanks about the swatches!

  8. I absolutely adore purple too so I'm always down for more, but I agree, not the most unique purple. But I forgive OPI because this collection as a whole is just awesomesauce.

  11. I'm sorry, I no longer have this polish so I don't have the model number. The name is Dutch Ya Just Love OPI and I'm sure the other information can be found on Google or OPI.com.
