I found a really good swatcher who does OPI latest Holland Collection swatch! i think these swatchers/bloggers are really great! They inspired mi to swatch and also discouraged me to swatch as well.. 😦

They applied polish well.. describe them well.. picture them well..! looking at their swatch makes me wana grap the whole polish collection!! .. ok i’m talking too much.. back to biz!!

4 casualties..

Too Too Hot… High Hope… I’m His Coral-Friend… Red Lights Ahead.. Where?

Tempted to compare!

I have 4 similar colours…!!! Am I crazy for this tone or wat!?!! Hahahaha..! Coincidence purchase la!! It’s only when I brought home my CG high hopes thn I realize this amazing finding!

Well.. Since I have them, I decided to do a simple comparison! Not too complex as im not a professional nail blogger anyway.. Chey~~ hahaha! (pardon mi! I muz be slpy! Blogging at the hour is a struggle! *yawn*) I took photos of my nails aft applying the every coat..

Names of the polish had been indicated in the photo so I will not be introducing them again.. You can do a google search if you would like to have more details..

Well, applying all these first coat made mi falls in love with Essie almost immediately! It’s so solid ! I think 1 coat is more than enuff! The red looks young and cheery but not childish!! U wun look like one “ah lian” when wearing Too Too Hot! Hahahaha!! (Now I know y Essie is so hot!) Love this new babe!! 2nd in my favorite list is OPI’s latest Holland Collection, Red Lights Ahead… Where?!! Din expect to like this colour tho… I think the color is very very close to Too Too Hot!! Putting both together I would say TTH is a sweeter tone of red (probably not too obvious in my pic) while RLH is more to bright red? And both have a teeni weeni touch of deep orange.. That makes both.. Orangie red.. The common term ppl use to describe this kinda red I guess would be “coral red”…

(Gona turn in now… Shall cont tmr!!!!! Stay tune!! Lol!)

China Glaze High Hope is also another color that got mi so excited to the extend of walking back to the stall to grab one after I see my sis applying it!!!! The eye catching orangie hot pink is definitely a no-regret buy for mi!!! 1 coat is good as well!!!

As compared to these 3, I’m His Coral-Friend seems to hv lose out a bit here.. The lacquer is much ‘thinner’ than the others.. As u can see, juz one coat ain’t enuff; nail tip is still visible.. But it sure is a multipurpose color. LOL! Y I say that?? Cuz its color look so gentle yet so bright.. It seems to be able to bring out that lil naughtiness under your gentle character! Lolx!

What u see above is after applying the 2nd coat.. What do u think??? Not much a diff for Too Too Hot, High Hope & Red Lights Ahead… Where? .. But for Coral-Friend, I believe u now can see that it’s slight thicker and nail tip not that obvious now..

Think I’m gona do Essie Too Too Hot some day soooooon!!

Holland is here!

ok.. whr shd i start?? how shd i start?!! so many to share!! Firstly thing first! i had got my Holland OPI! … .. *counting* ok.. not all the colours.. but 6 out of 12! (Wow~ this series have 12 colors too!?!??) i cant do ALL 12 colours swatch and will not be doing any of what i have soon.. but if you insist, you can check out Scrangie’s swatch HERE! Her swatch are quite accurate.. i likeee ♥♥♥!!!

Here’s the Holland mini set i’ve got from Smoochiezz‘s booth for S$18 (but online said $17.50.. weird!!).. I’m so lucky! it was out of stock when i last visited their site but when im der, IT’S ALL DISPLAYED!! hahahaha!! SHIOK! without hesitation, i grabbed one! (later checked on FB, it was re-stocked at 4pm)

This mini series have 4 colours, namely (from left to ight)

– I Have A Herring Problem NL H58 (the green version of I Don’t Give A Rotterdam)

– Red Lights Ahead.. Where? NL H61 (a red-er version OPI I’m His Coral-Friend)

– Kiss Me On My Tulips NL H59 (well.. just pink.. lighter tone of hot pink perhaps??i don’t think i see any shimmer.. is der??)

– Pedal Faster Suzi! NL H60 (the pink version of I Don’t Give A Rotterdam)

Other than the minis, i’ve got 2 regular size lacquer!! Vampsterdam & I Don’t Give A Rotterdam! Okay.. the reason for posting two photo here.. is because without flash, you can’t see wat color is Vampsterdam.. Vamp is actually a .. (uuh complicated!) 80% velvet + 15% dark brown + 5% fine fine fine shimmer.. very classy look IMO.. reminds mi of my one & only Orly polish “Take Him To The Cleaner”.. but Vamp is more to velvet and Cleaner is more to brown. the only thing in common is their fine shimmer.. love them both!

As for Rotterdam, its a blue polish with silver glitters/shimmer.. haven really “examine” it yet so i can’t comment much on this.. BUT one thing for sure.. this is the first color in Holland series that caught my attention and i’m loving it~~~ >_<

   

Well.. that’s all for now.. so glad that i’ve got my holland!! wahaha! and i must give this credit to my 老婆! she bought both Rotterdam and Vamp for me!!
