This weekend is a low key one for me, so I decided to perk it up by wearing a super bright, fun colour on my nails. Kiss Me On My Tulips is part of the Holland Collection by OPI, designed for spring/summer 2012. I love pink nail polish, however this colour isn't all that unique. It's a hot pink. There are lots of similar pinks that you can find by O.P.I. and other brands. I think that Chanel's Rose Exuberant is quite a good match and in fact, that's why I decided to get this one instead, to save a few dollars.
Perhaps I should have gotten the Chanel instead, because I find the formula of Kiss Me On My Tulips (which is a creme) to be a little streaky. I had to apply three applications to get an even coverage. It's not too bad, two coats would have been sufficient but I'm quite pedantic about little things like that.
The good thing about this colour is that is doesn't seem to chip as easily as some other colours by OPI. Being a creme probably has something to do with that. Or perhaps it was because I applied three coats, which I rarely do. Hmmm?!

I really like the other colours in the Holland collection, so I'll probably get them at a later date. I love the look of Pedal Faster Suzi, but I have enough pinks as it is so I'm trying to venture out and discover other colours. Vampsterdam and Dutch Ya Just Love seem like good contenders!
My weekend is extremely low key, I haven't left the house at all yet but tomorrow is another day. My nails will be flaunted then, although it's not hard to miss. Especially in this drab weather! Kiss Me On My Tulips is definitely a great colour to perk up your day.
