Spring Splatter Manicure

Hey guys!

Since I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get a chance to do a full review/swatch post for the OPI Holland Collection, I decided to utilize a few of my favourite shades from the collection in a nail art design.

The design I chose is a recreation of one of my older designs - Rainbow Splatter. I also have a tutorial for that design so if you like the look of today's mani and have these polishes, you can recreate this by using the tutorial.

I started with a base of Thanks a Windmillion, which is a dusty seafoam creme shade. It reminds me a lot of Mermaid's Tears from last year's Pirates of the Caribbean Collection, maybe just a touch darker. The formula was really nice and I only needed 2 coats for full coverage.

The splatters were made with Pedal Faster Suzi!, Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI? and I Have a Herring Problem. Pedal Faster Suzi! is a light pink with heavy silver-white shimmer and let me just say, I absolutely LOVE this shade. I actually wish I had used this one as my base colour because I just want to use it more! Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI? is a red-toned purple with gold and red shimmer and I Have a Herring Problem is a dusty blue with gold and silver shimmer.

These are my top 4 picks from the collection but there are a few others that I really like as well. And my #1 pick is surprisingly Pedal Faster Suzi!

Anyways, onto the mani that I created with these!
