The Spring/Summer 2013OPI Euro Centrale Collection mixes it up combining your usual poolside brights with more saturated hues of purple and blue!
Hands Off My Kielbasa!
Hands Off My Kielbasa!(bronzy tan) Is a lovely peachy bronze with tons of shimmer. This polish applied so well and was opaque in two coats.
My Vampire is Buff
My Vampire is Buff(pale nude) is an ecru cream. On its own this shade wasn’t a favorite and the formula was mediocre… but I think it would make a nice base for a dark and bold glitter. I had to use three coats to even it out.
You’re Such a Budapest
You’re Such a Budapest(periwinkle-purple) The formula of this one was pretty sheer. The above swatch is three coats and I contemplated a fourth. (PS – if you enlarge the photo you’ll see a very slight hint of shimmer).
Can’t Find My Czechbook
Can’t Find My Czechbook(aqua) This cream applied slightly runny and was hard to even out, so I needed three coats for this one.
Polka.com(blue, violet glitter) has medium sized blue, fuchsia and indigo glitters as well as smaller blue glitter. This one was nice because the glitter wasn’t temperamental and applied well on the nail. One coat is shown over Can’t Find My Czechbook.
OPI….Eurso Euro is a lovely royal blue jelly. This shade is so saturated and the perfect midway between a navy and a bolder blue. Two coats were used in the photo.
Suzi’s Hungary Again!
Suzi’s Hungary Again! is a rosy pink cream with very subtle shimmer. The formula was a little thin and runny but I was still able to get it fully opaque in two coats.
I Saw….U Saw….We Saw….Warsaw
I Saw….U Saw….We Saw….Warsaw is a deep navy cream. The shade is gorgeous and glossy, but the formula was borderline runny. I used two coats for the swatch photo.
Vant to Bite My Neck?
Vant to Bite My Neck? is a beautiful and very saturated plum cream. Application was fabulous and I adore this color. Two coats were used above.
A Woman’s Prague-Ative
A Woman’s Prague-Ative is a bold copper metallic with copper and gold shimmers throughout. This polish actually makes me think more “Fall” and the leaves changing! Stunning! Three coats were used for the photo for full coverage.
Oy-Another Polish Joke!
Oy-Another Polish Joke! looks like you dipped your nails in glimmering liquid gold. This is a surprise love for me from this collection! The three coats above gave it almost the illusion of being opaque, but clearly it’s not.
My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours!
My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours! is an in-your-face tangerine cream with very subtle shimmer. This is the shade that I always reach for as my go-to pedi look for Spring and Summer! I used two coats to even out the polish, but you may be able to get away with one.
My must-haves from this collection are Hands Off My Kielbasa!, OPI….Eurso Euro, Vant to Bite My Neck?, A Woman’s Prague-Ative, Suzi’s Hungary Again!, Oy-Another Polish Joke! and My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours!
