OPI I Don’t Give a Rotterdam!

OPI I Don't Give a RotterdamToday is kind of an awesome day. Not only does Carolina play Duke tonight….but it’s the official release date of OPI’s Spring 2012 Holland collection! Yay!!!

Ok, anyways, that was awkward. But it’s been a long time since I’ve been this excited about an OPI collection! The last time I was this excited was way back when the Swiss collection was released for Fall 2010. Due to this I was more or less foaming at the mouth when I went to Ulta this morning not long after they opened. One of the sales associates was in the process of putting up the display when I walked in. I snatched up I Don’t Give a Rotterdam along with Red Lights Ahead….Where? off the half assembled display. I figured that would hold me over at least a few days….

OPI describes I Don’t Give a Rotterdam as a “sassy steel-blue shimmer”. I don’t know about sassy but this is a grayed out light blue with gold shimmer. Totally gorgeous! Which pretty much also describes Rotterdam. Make sure to check out the shimmer in the macro shot below the jump.

The formula was a bit thin, but well worth it.  I used 3 coats and was happy with the coverage.

This polish does remind me a bit of Essie Smooth Sailing and butter LONDON Victoriana. Neither are anywhere near dupes but are in the blue family with similar shimmer.

Is anyone else as excited about this collection as I am? Realistically this will not eclipse France as my all time favorite OPI collection, but it is nice to be crazy excited about nail polish again 🙂

  1. I scooped up Rotterdam and Van Gogh (I have like no neutrals in my stash) and I’m going back for a few more. I think this collection is third for me following the Russia and Swiss collections.

  2. This is such a pretty color! I love reading your blog and going through older posts. I just read your post about Orly Pixie Dust and thought it looked similar to Rotterdam. The major difference I see is the shimmer. 🙂

What do you think?
