OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes

Happy Monday everyone! Here to lift your Monday blues is Gouda Gouda Two Shoes from OPI's Holland Collection.

Gouda Gouda Two Shoes* is one of the shimmers from this collection, a dusty pink with gold, pink, and green shimmers. I really thought that I would love this shade, but I have to admit that it disappointed me. There wasn't anything wrong with it, it just didn't excite me. Now, dusty rose polishes aren't normally known to "excite", but the whole time I was wearing it I felt like it was lacking.

Application for Gouda Gouda Two Shoes was really good, two coats was enough for full opacity. I added OPI's Top Coat for extra shine and durability. Overall, this is a good work appropriate shade, and I know that it will appeal to a lot of people, just not especially to me.

  1. It's a pretty colour that would compliment a range of skin tones but I think I'd prefer to buy a more exciting OPI shade. :)

    1. I agree with you, I would pick up some other shades in this collection over this one (Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI?, and I Don't Give a Rotterdam!)
      It's a nice colour, but it doesn't jump out at me!

  5. Do you know, I know you say it's a bit boring and it probably is, but this is The One from the collection that I most have my eye on. Just love dusty pink. Glad to hear it's a two-coater, that seals the deal for me. :-) x

  7. Love this shade - it will be one I will be getting in this collection. It's one that will look good with everything on busy weeks when I cannot change my polish often.
