OPI Euro Centrale (spring/summer 2013)

4:11 PM


I am very excited to share swatches of some of the new OPI polishes for spring/summer 2013. This year OPI takes inspirtation from Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Romania for a collection called Euro Centrale. For more information about this collection, go HERE.

Can't Find My Czechbook. "I hope you take credit, because I must have this aqua."
It's a very bright aqua creme. On the nails, it's a bit brighter than in the bottle. It's not a pastel color at all, it's a very rich color that makes me want to lay on the beach, under the palm trees, and simply watch the ocean!
Formula wise, it's a bit watery on the first coat but pigmentation is still good as you need only 2 coats to achieve a smooth and opaque look.

My Paprika is Hotter than Yours! "Get the extinguisher...this fiery red is sizzling!"
That's it! This polish is sizzling. I can predict a lof of people will enjoy it this summer! It's a bright orange-red creme with a very good formula, nearly opaque in 1 coat but I did 2 here to be sure it was perfect. It also has a slight silver shimmer running through it.

OY-Another Polish Joke! "So this shimmery-gold walks into a bar..."
What a funny name! I love it! OY-Another Polish Joke! is a yelllow gold shimmery polish, packed with tons of gold flakes in a clear base. The flakes are really dense and you can get a full coverage at three coats (shown here). The overall look is very shimmery and sparkly! I'm pretty sure this polish would  also be great as a layering polish as it's rather sheer.

Blurry picture but it shows how sparkly it is!

Polka.com "Blue and violet are dancing paterns in this glittery combo."
It's a glitter polish made of large and much smaller aqua, violet, and fuchsia hexagonal glitters in a clear base. That's a very fun polish and you can create so many different combinations with it. I must admit the aqua, violet, and fuchsia glitters look awesome together! The glitters laid flat on the nails and application was easy.

I think OPI did an amazing job with this collection! It looks fresh and cheerful! I first thought it might be a bit risky not to have more red polishes but the colors are very unique and pretty, I'm sure many many people will love this collection as much as I do!
I already have in mind some other manicures I could do with these polishes so stay tuned for more swatches ;D
