OPI Holland Collection - Dutch Treats Mini Set

When I heard that OPI was releasing a 'Holland' inspired collection, I just knew I had to get my hands on some of the range. Last month, I noticed an offer on buyapowa to get the OPI Dutch Treats mini set. I knew I was visiting family in Holland this month (well, I'm here now!) so I couldn't resist to buy this set for the occasion! I adore Holland, and the colours in this set are gorgeous and remind me of the country, canals and the tulip fields that I always pass on the way to my brother's flat.

The shades in this set are amazing, I couldn't choose a single favourite. That's why I decided to mix and match (even if it looks a bit silly). I applied 2 coats of each nail polish, but to be honest, the colour is that strong you could probably get away with applying 1 coat. I guess it depends on what effect and how sharp you want the colours to be. The teal and pale pink shades are slightly shimmery, which is pretty noticeable when hit by the sunlight. The other 2 colours, coral/red and hot pink, are sharp and very bright - great for colour clashing, or to splash a bit of colour on a dull outfit!

I have applied a clear top coat to each nail polish, and they all last a fair few days before chipping. Very long lasting, which is great, especially when on holiday like I am right now!

You can buy this set for around £13, or you can buy the full sizes of the Holland inspired range here - they cost £11 each, and I honestly think it's worth the money. The polishes are hard wearing and long lasting... and although this collection is for Spring/Summer, I'll definitely be digging these out during Autumn/Winter in order to brighten up an outfit.
