OPI "I Don't Give a Rotterdam" Swatch + Review

 two coats, natural light

This summer OPI launched their Dutch Collection and I was a little underwhelmed. The colors were nice but the only shade that really caught my eye was "I Don't Give a Rotterdam"--and not only because of it's cute name. It is the prettiest shade of soft, blue with lots of silver shimmer. The shimmer isn't too much but it is definately noticeable on the nail. So much so that a few of the people thought this color was silver on the nail--even though in the bottle the blue color is a bit more obvious. It goes on lovely and after I picked this color up half-way through the summer is has easily become one of my most worn polishes.

You might be wondering, If this color was one of your most worn colors in the summer why are we only just now seeing a swatch? And that is a valid question. Long story short, I took the pictures before I left for Hawaii but they got lost in my computer and I found them recently--after I'd taken another set of photos. It really is a gorgeous color. I also had my eye on "I Have a Herring Problem" which was a darker, dustier version of this color in the Dutch Collection but I couldn't justify buying both colors. They were way too similar. I'm a bit surprised that OPI put them in the same collection.

In conclusion, if you are thinking about picking up this color--buy it! It reminds me a lot of Essie "Lapis of Luxury" but with shimmer. If you like that color, I think you'll really like this one too!
