OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips vs. OPI That's Hot! Pink

WHEW! i was up on Skype with my husband until 4am my time... i'm so sleepy. it was so worth it, though :)

the final polish of the OPI 2012 Holland collection is OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips (is it me or does that sound really naughty?), which we'll be comparing to OPI That's Hot! Pink. i can't believe how similar they are in color! the formulas, on the other hand, are hugely different. they are bright, cool pinks, as you probably gathered from the names... they are both your typical hot pink. TH!P is slightly warmer than KMOMT... but unless you are really looking, you can't tell. in terms of formula, KMOMT blows TH!P out of the water! i did two coats of each... KMOMT was perfectly opaque in two coats, while TH!P shows visible nail lines and was streaky on top of that. you slightly see the nail line on my middle finger, it was actually more visible in real life... how often does that happen?!

one coat Seche Base, two coats of each on their assigned fingers, one coat Seche Vite.

you definitely don't need both of these polishes... if you are in the market for a hot pink, run grab up KMOMT! i'm glad i have it so i can put TH!P in the give to friends drawer... i know i won't be using it again. 

on to my final thoughts for this collection. while all the colors are pretty, i just am not in love with the collection as a whole. i think i was so excited for it to come out (i've been waiting since last year when swatches started showing up!) the actual colors couldn't quite live up to what i was hoping for them to be. all of the formulas were so easy to work with, there weren't any duds at all! if you like the colors, you're not going to be disappointed. let me know what you think if you've tried any of these or which ones you're hoping to pick up!
