    So I realize that this is an old post but hopefully you can help me out… I too have the Sugarplum Yum with Yokohama numbers in the label. I also own the two Suagrplum Yum from the Victorian Holiday Collection and the aren’t similar at all. My question is how do you know that your bottle is incorrect and not truly a Yokohama exclusive?

    • Hello JDB!

      Thanks for your curiosity and your comment — they set me to doing some necessary homework re what’s what with the same names, different collection numbers and differing bottle content between the OPI Victorian Holiday and Yokohama (Asia-exclusive) collections.

      The short answer to your question is, I was wrong and you are right … my Sugarplum Yum bottle *is* an Asia-exclusive from the Yokohama collection, since it bears that collection’s numbers.

      Based on Internet research and troving through the excellent archiving of others around the world, I found that most (if not all) of the glitter top coats from the OPI 2002 Victorian Holiday collection were reproduced as Asia exclusives, albeit with different collection numbers.

      Are your 2002 VH Sugarplum Yum bottles both black label, bearing the numbers SR 2L3 for the multichrome and SR 2L9 for the glitter top coat?

      I have never seen any members of the Victorian Holiday collection in real life, so I’m also curious to know, since you stated you also have the Yokohama Sugarplum Yum glitter … are the two Sugarplum Yum *glitters* the same? It’s virtually impossible to tell from online photos, but the descriptors don’t sound similar 🙂

      As an aside, Nutcracker Sweet was also a member of the 2002 VH collection later reproduced as an Asia exclusive — since my bottle bears Yokohama numbers, it is indeed authentic.

      Thanks again for bringing this to my attention and thus correcting my misinformation! I paid a pretty penny for those glitters, so I’m pleased to know they’re the real deal.
