REVIEW: OPI Spring/Summer 2013 Euro Centrale Collection
(as previewed here)
Get your eyes ready for the entire Spring/Summer 2013 collection from OPI! This set includes creme- and shimmer-finish polishes along with one adorable glitter polish.
Let’s get to the swatches now, shall we?
This is one coat of Polka.com layered over You’re Such a Budapest (swatched a few pictures below). Polka.com is a clear-base polish with fuchsia, teal, and purple hex glitter. I love the mixture of spring colors in this glitter!
OPI…Eurso Euro is a vibrant purple-blue creme polish that has a jelly-like consistency when applied. This polish dries with a rubber finish, so you can use a top coat to make it shiny. I used two coats in the photo above.
Suzi’s Hungary AGAIN! Eat up, Suzi! :) OPI comes up with some of the cutest polish names, haha. This cute pink has a subtle silver shimmer. This is two coats.
You’re Such a Budapest is my favorite from this collection, especially with Polka.com layered on top. This gorgeous lilac creme has a slight shimmer as well, but you cannot see it from far away. Three coats required for opacity.
Can’t Find My Czechbook is a muted, dusty blue-green creme. Application is smooth and perfect with just two coats. Can’t find your “Czechbook”? That’s okay, you can pay me in cash. ;)
My Paprika is Hotter than Yours! Whoo-whee, this color is hot hot hot! The name is absolutely suiting for such a bright orange-red color. Pictured is two coats.
Hands Off My Kielbasa! is a shimmering rose polish with a golden shimmer. Two coats pictured here. This is not a polish I would choose for myself, as it seems to clash with my skin tone.
I was not expecting to like Oy-Another Polish Joke! at all from looking at the bottle, but once I got it on my nails, I fell in love. This is such an interesting yellow-gold flecky polish. I think you’re supposed to layer it over another color, but the base is tinted yellow, so I used three coats to build it up. It has such a brilliant shine in the sun!
A Woman’s Prague-ative is a polish that I would expect to be a part of OPI’s Designer Series (DS) collection because it has that kind of sparkle. This is a stunning bronze jelly-like polish with a golden shimmer. So pretty! I used two coats here.
Vant to Bite My Neck? No? I found this deep eggplant creme polish to be out of place because it’s quite vampy for a spring/summer collection, but boy, it’s a beauty. Two coats to cover up all the bald spots!
I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw is quite a funky name, don’tchu think? This is a one-coater navy blue creme. I must warn you that this polish may stain your cuticles and nails, so be sure to use a base coat with this baby!
And here we have My Vampire is Buff. Ooh, I always get so excited when I have a beautiful, non-streaky nude polish! This is a gorgeous base for nail art or you can wear it alone for a classy manicure. I used three coats.
Whew! That was a lot of nail polish! What do you think? Did you see something you like?
