OPI Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI & China Glaze Luxe and Lush

Hi guys! Hope you're all having an excellent start to your weekend! It feels so nice to be back in the swing of things as far as blogging goes. With all of the awesome new collections out, it's really hard to pick polishes for manicures. I'm so impressed by OPI's Holland collection. I know a lot of people don't feel the same way as I do, but I really think it's a perfect collection with an inclusive variety of shades. I'm also impressed by China Glaze's Hunger Games collection; wow! I am not a huge fan of China Glaze but some of their colors seriously wow me. I was dying to try their new color Luxe and Lush because it's stunning in the bottle. I decided to pair it over Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI.

What I Used:
2 coats of OPI Nail Envy (rebuilding after massacring my nails to remove the CND Shellac)
2 coats of OPI Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI
1 coat of Poshe Top Coat

Bottom Line:
I'm definitely impressed with both OPI and China Glaze. The formula on Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI was impeccable, per usual. It's got a really pretty gold shimmer to it if in certain light. It's definitely worthy of being used alone for a manicure, I just didn't because I was eager to try Luxe and Lush, too. Luxe and Lush was a little difficult to use, but worth it. The flakie-glass flecks are so pretty but kept sitting in awkward spots on my nails. My best friend kept calling them flakies but they look more like glass shards; not sure if there's a "technical name" for them.

Which of the Holland/Hunger Games collections polishes did you pick up? Have you tried either or both of these two yet? What do you think?


  1. Beautiful! I got the whole Hunger Games collection. Just couldn't help myself. Dutch'Ya is the only one of the Holland collection that I feel I need. :)

  2. Wow great!

  3. Oh my goodness... Must get that CG! But you're right.. It's pretty but almost... awkward?

  4. How come everyone's Sally's had the CG Capitol Collection (hunger games inspired) available but mine don't yet??? I think this Luxe and Lush is going to be a huge hit and htf ASAP. Maybe they will wise up and add it to their classic wall collection. I also like a large # of the OPI Holland collection. I did not buy Van Gough - too much like others and did not get the Red Lights...Where? Thinking it was the same as other reds I have but am going to have to pick it up after seeing it on a # of blogs. I am positively nuts over the bright - not quite neon orange in the Holland collection called "Hague" something. It's spot on for the famous Dutch orange and fab on nails.


Thank you for your kind words! I read every single comment and I love hearing from my readers. I will comment back on your blog if you have one; I love making new blogging friends! Have a great day!
