Nail Mail! OPI Holland Collection & Best of the Best!

Today I received 6 of the much anticipated Holland Collection colours from OPI! I also received OPI's Best of the Best Collection, which consists of 10 mini polishes in OPI's best selling shades. I'm so excited about both of these collections, and I can't wait to share them with you! :)

First up, OPI's Holland Collection. I will be reviewing each of these shades individually very soon, but for now I'll just be showing the bottle pics.

Left to Right: I Don't Give a Rotterdam!, Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI?, Wooden Shoe Like to Know?, Gouda Gouda Two Shoes, I Have a Herring Problem, Thanks a Windmillion

I love these names!! So cute and original!

Now on to the Best of the Best Collection from OPI!

Such cute, girly packaging!

There's two boxes, that just slide out as shown :)

Left to Right: Alpine Snow, Bubble Bath, Tickle My France-y, Strawberry Margarita, Cajun Shrimp

Left to Right: Big Apple Red, I'm Not Really a Waitress, You Don't Know Jacques!, Russian Navy, Lincoln Park After Dark

I already own a lot of these shades, but I'm still really happy to have this! I like the smaller bottles as a way to test out the colours, to see if you would want to buy the bigger bottle or not. 

I can't wait to try out all of these polishes and share them with you! 

What do you think of my nail mail?

Disclosure: These polishes were sent to me for my honest review.

  6. Great! Cannot wait to see your swatches. I also saw the 'Best Of' sets. Oddly they were out in my area really early. I saw them by mid Oct I am thinking. But when I read the shades on them, did not pick it up. As like you, I had most of the shades already and it was not a good collection for anyone I would be gifting to either. I sure wish that OPI would come out again with a re-release of some of their most loved discontinued shades like they did for I think it was their 20th anniv. It would be great if they would pick a long list and run a social media contest to select which ones were going to be put out again.

  7. beachgal - I would LOVE if OPI released a collection like that! Mad as a Hatter, Smitten with Mittens, Catch Me in Your Net, the original My Private Jet, Absolutely Alice... just to name a few! The idea of a contest to select the shades is an awesome idea! That would be amazing :)

    1. I think so too. It would bring some big thunder to the OPI label. I don't see enough 'give us feedback' offered by OPI and I think it wins customers these days.

    2. OPI's Facebook page has a strong sense of community, and they've recently been running some contests on inspired nail designs. But you're right, OPI doesn't seem to ask for very much feedback! It would be nice to see :)

  8. I have the best of the best too, and while I love the colours I find the smaller versions don't apply as smoothly. Have you found that? is it just me?

    1. I agree, the larger sized bottles have the Pro-Wide brush, so they tend to apply easier! I also really don't like the smaller sizes when it comes to glitters, they really don't apply as nicely as the regular sized bottles!

    2. Agreed! The bottles are super cute though!!!
