I haven't taken any new mani pics in a few weeks, but I thought today I'd dig back and see what I hadn't shown off yet. And lookie here! My OPI Holland collection swatches! I really liked this collection...way more than I thought I would. I saw other girls' swatches and thought, "Meh. Nothing earth-shattering." But when I saw them in stores, I realized that I wanted so many of them! They're all so very wearable, and the ones I chose have that little "ooh-aah" that you only realize is there when you look closely.

|Pedal Faster, Suzi|
|I Don't Give a Rotterdam|
Of these, I think Gouda Gouda Two-Shoes is probably my favorite. This surprises even me; it's a work-appropriate taupey-y rose. Sounds boring, right? WRONG. I can see this color looking great on pretty much any skin tone, and again, it's got that little special shimmery something that I just LOVE in otherwise boring colors. I was torn between buying I Don't Give a Rotterdam and I Have a Herring Problem (which is similar, but with more green), and I'm glad I chose Rotterdamn. I do so adore a cornflower blue. Pedal Faster is a lovely pink, but it was a bitch to photograph! It also drives me moderately nuts that it really ought to be called "Petal Faster, Suzi" if they're trying to play off of Holland's famous tulips, but whatever. I'm gonna have to put it in third place just for that.
I hope everyone is having a great time Spring-ing into April!
