OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips

Today, I have for you OPI's Kiss Me On My Tulips, released as part of their Holland Collection. I have been really excited for this color, and I was super happy when it came in the inaugural US Glossybox I won earlier this month.







Kiss Me On My Tulips is a bright medium fuchsia pink that leans on the cool side due to its blue undertones. Though it has a creme finish, it dries a little matte instead of a high-gloss shine commonly associated with a creme finish, so I would recommend a top coat if you want the glossy look. It is a pretty—though not totally original—pink. For comparison, it is similar to Zoya Lara, with Lara being about two shades lighter than Kiss Me On My Tulips.

I adore OPI's signature wide flat brush, which make getting clean lines at the cuticles and applying thin coats a breeze. The trade off of a wide brush is that it takes away some application precision around the sides of the nail. The formula is good, and I only needed the standard two coats to achieve the opacity you see in the swatches.

You can find Kiss Me On My Tulips at a variety of nail salons, spas, and beauty stores for $8.50 for 0.5oz.

  2. You're right, it's nothing spectacularly original, but it's still a gorgeous color and a must have in any stash! And it suits you really well :)
    I don't usually like flat brushes though...

    1. That's how I feel about beauty subscriptions too. Currently, my only subscription is Julep, which I like because I know beforehand what I will get and I can skip if I don't like the items. :-)

  6. Thanks for the mention of similarity to Lara. This looks (and sounds) like it is similar to Julep Helena, which is a lovely thing except that both Julep and OPI wear terribly on me. So, I think I'll try Lara. Anyhoo, gorgeous, gorgeous color. :)

    1. I'm glad you like the color. Yes, I think Lara would be a good substitute if OPI does not wear as well on you. I don't have Helena, but from swatches, it looks similar... maybe just a shade or two more purple than Kiss Me On My Tulips. :-)
