You may have already heard about the OPI Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012, but just in case you haven’t, here you go!
The ones that caught my eye initially were Thanks a WindMillion, I Have a Herring Problem, and I Don’t Give a Rotterdam!
Some of the names make me laugh. That’s partially why I love OPI – they have fun with the names and usually they come up with something really creative. It’s way more fun to own a colour with a quirky name than just something like “Blue”.
Which colours are you looking forward to in the OPI Holland Collection? If you could name your own polish, what would it be called?
These are the colours in the OPI Holland Collection:
- I Don’t Give a Rotterdam!
- Gouda Gouda Two Shoes
- I Have a Herring Problem
- Wooden Shoe Like to Know?
- A Roll in the Hague
- Red Lights Ahead…Where?
- Kiss Me on My Tulips
- Pedal Faster Suzi!
- Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI?
- Did You ‘ear About Van Gogh?
- Thanks a WindMillion

Color with a Touch of Dutch
OPI Launches Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012
OPI celebrates color with the Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012. Inspired by the country’s range of stunning shades – as seen in vivid tulips, windmill-dotted hillsides and bustling canals – the collection’s twelve shades offer a mixture of sophisticated neutrals and highly-pigmented brights.
“Holland has a very unique, vibrant beauty to match its open-minded nature,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Spring is the season of color, and the Holland Collection provides an array of pink, coral and orange hues that capture this energy. The bright lacquers are married with neutrals in new variations like red clay and sea green.”
A sequence of electric brights, including a sun-lit orange (A Roll in The Hague), a hot coral-red (Red Lights Ahead…Where?) and two perfectly pretty pinks (Kiss Me on My Tulips and a light-catching Pedal Faster Suzi!) complement their cooler counterparts in hues of glistening purple (Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI? and Vampsterdam), while elegant neutrals (Gouda Gouda Two Shoes, Did You ’ear About Van Gogh? and Wooden Shoe Like to Know?) meet two shimmer-laced blues (I Have a Herring Problem and I Don’t Give a Rotterdam!) and a creamy sea green (Thanks a WindMillion).
“Wearing these colors on fingers and toes will accessorize the season’s hottest trends,” remarks Suzi. “The varied palette of colors accentuates the looks that walked the runway, from colored pants and ladylike frocks to long, blousysleeved tops and dramatic patterns.”
Holland by OPI includes the following shades:
A Roll in The Hague
