OPI Euro Centrale

OPI Euro Centrale for spring/summer 2013 is a collection of twelve new polishes created to celebrate the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania.

“When visiting these countries, you’ll view Gothic churches alongside vibrant graffiti murals, blending two very different aesthetics. This fusion of old and new was also seen in runway looks during New York Fashion Week, where classic styles were reinvented with modern silhouettes and patterns.

“Euro Centrale boasts a wide variety of shades, ranging from pale nude to deep blue – and featuring everything from shimmering copper to aqua in between!,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Whether you’re looking to spice up a black and white print, or add neutrality to a vivid brocade, these lacquers are designed to accessorize spring’s hottest looks.”

So without further ado, let’s dog into central Europe!

OPI My Vampire Is Buff
My Vampire Is Buff

My Vampire Is Buff is a cool white-ish beige creme. This one was a bit on the streaky side, even after three coats.

OPI Hands Off My Kielbasa
Hands Off My Kielbasa!

Hands Off My Kielbasa! is a peachy/bronze shimmer. I didn’t think much of it in the bottle and on my nails at first. But then once I saw it through the lens I had a much better impression. Pretty soft shade, and this is two coats.

OPI Suzis Hungary Again
Suzi’s Hungary Again!

Suzi’s Hungary Again! is a warm toned medium pink shimmer. Very girly shade, very pretty. Great coverage in two coats, with just some slight patchy areas where my ridges are (ARGH).

OPI You re Such A Budapest
You’re Such a Budapest

You’re Such a Budapest is a soft lavender with slight shimmer. This is a pretty thin and watery polish, and even after three coats it was streaky. Pretty shade though.

OPI You re Such a Budapest and Polka com
Polka.com over You’re Such A Budapest

Polka.com has a clear base and contains teal and fuchsia large hex glitter and purple micro glitter. If you just brush one coat on without any glitter manipulation, this is what it looks like. There are some clumpier areas of glitter and some sparser areas. To get it completely even, like with most of these types of glitter, you have to work a bit at placing it where you want it.

OPI Can t Find My Czechbook
Can’t Find My Czechbook

Can’t Find My Czechkbook is a bright aqua blue creme. A very summery shade, but a little streaky. This was two coats.

OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours
My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours!

My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours! is a bright hot orange with slight silver shimmer. Really nice shade, great creamy smooth formula. This was two coats.

OPI Oy Another Polish Joke
Oy-Another Polish Joke!

Oy-Another Polish Joke! is a warm yellow/gold shimmer. I used three coats here and I didn’t do a great job at wrapping the tips, so forgive me. It is a little sheer so a few coats will be required.

OPI A Woman s Prague Ative
A Woman’s Prague-ative

A Woman’s Prague-ative is a shimmery warm coppery orange. Nice color, good coverage with just two coats.

OPI OPI Euroso Euro
OPI…Euroso Euro

OPI…Euroso Euro is a deep yet vivid and intense cobalt blue creme. Gorgeous shade, my favorite one in the collection by far. Great coverage. I used three thin coats but you could probably get away with two.

OPI I Saw U Saw We Saw Warsaw
I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw

I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw is a dark teal-toned blue creme. This is another one I really like because it’s not a navy blue (so tired of those) and the coverage was excellent. You could do one thick coat! But I did two here.

OPI Vant To Bite My Neck
Vant To Bite My Neck?

Vant To Bite My Neck? is a very dark cool-toned purple creme. Really nice velvety color, maybe not unique. Great formula, very creamy and really opaque in two coats, nearly one.

OPI Euro Centrale Collage

Overall: I think there are some nice shades in here and some maybe not so unique. A few of them had some streaky and patchy issues though. My favorites and the most unique are Hands Off My Kielbasa!, OPI…Euroso Euro, Suzi’s Hungary Again! and I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw. I tell ya, the names sure are a pain to remember and type though! 😉

Availability: Early February.

Pricing: $9.00.
