Swatches & review: Colours to expect this spring/summer!

Hello ladies :) I know most of my readers live in the northern hemisphere and are currently experiencing lovely warmth and sunshine but southern hemisphere ladies - fret not! It'll be our turn soon :) I recently received some information from OPI regarding the IT! shades of spring/summer. I have four of the shades to show you today.

First up is the orange representative. I know orange was all the rage the beginning of this year, but apparently it's still going strong...which is good because I only recently jumped onto the bandwagon myself ;) This is two coats of A roll in the hague, which was a part of OPI Holland collection released at the beginning of this year. It's bright, it's orange and has beautiful application. What's not to love?

Next up is a soft, pink tinged neutral to clean your palette a bit. My very first knockwurst fits the glove and my is it lovely to work with. Two nice coats of the pretty and you're ready to wear these nails to work ;)

Pedal faster Suzi is lovely pink filled with glass flecked shimmer. Another gorgeous polish from the Holland collection, this one is totally fit for a girly manicure. Photos show two coats but I think it would have benefited with one more coat.

Lastly, how can I forget the lovely lilac shade Do you lilac it?. Being a purple lover, I'm pretty happy that this will remain a trendy shade for spring (although I'd still wear it even if it weren't :P). Two easy coats are pictured!

So apparently golds and silvers will also make their appearance in the upcoming season, which will be available in OPI's Skyfall collection, to be released in mid September in Australia. HOW EXCITING! :D Check out the sneak peek which was shown on their official facebook page.
