The Spring/Summer 2013 OPI Euro Centrale Collection mixes it up combining your usual poolside brights with more saturated hues of purple and blue!
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
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.
Suzi’s Hungary Again!
I Saw….U Saw….We Saw….Warsaw
Vant to Bite My Neck?
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!
