When the OPI Holland collection came out for Spring/Summer this year, Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI? was the only polish that I immediately knew I needed. However, it doesn't really scream spring or summer to me, and until now I'd only worn it once since I got it. I'm amazed that all through the summer I was able to look right over this one in my polish drawer, it's so gorgeous!
Application was perfect and barely required any cleanup; OPI's brush works really well with my nails. This is two coats of Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI? with two coats of Seche Vite and studs from a Color Club nail art set.
You can see my previous (awful) swatches of this colour in one of my first blog posts here, though the sight of my then-beautiful nails may be too much for you. Just kidding, I can't believe I actually posted those pictures. Oh well, got to start somewhere, right? :)
Even though purple is my favourite colour, I don't have many purple polishes because I'm really picky about which shades and finishes I like in purples. I'm really glad I got this one though, it's really flattering on my skin tone and such a pretty colour with that hidden shimmer! I'll definitely be reaching for this one quite a bit during the fall.
Do you love this purple as much as I do? I think the studs add a lot to the look of this mani, the purple and gold combination looks kind of royal, doesn't it? I love using studs as a way to spice up a plain mani, have you ever tried it? :)
(Also, did the pictures of my previous swatch burn your eyeballs out of your head?)
