Yay!! It's Friday!! Time is flying by so quickly.. just as long as it slows down once spring arrives, I'm fine with that!! Speaking of spring, I have six beautiful polishes from OPI's Euro Centrale Spring/Summer 2013 Collection to share with you today. Along with this new collection, I also have some new nubs :( I had a bad break on my middle fingernail, so I filed them all down.. grrr. On to the swatches..
You're Such a Budapest:
You're Such a Budapest is a gorgeous sheer periwinkle-purple cream. I absolutely love this shade! I did use three coats. I still consider it a creme, just not as thick as most. This is a perfect spring color and I see myself using this as a base color for a lot of glitter toppers I own. :)
Hands Off My Kielbasa!:
Hands Off My Kielbasa! is a peach-y, bronze-y, almost tan-ish color that really isn't for me. I'm usually not drawn to these colors, but I'm sure many of you are and formula-wise, Hands Off My Kielbasa! was just fine. I used two coats in the above two pics. (It does have a pretty shimmer).
I Saw.. U Saw.. We Saw..Warsaw:
|with top coat|
I Saw.. You Saw.. We Saw.. Warsaw (crazy name lol) is a deep blue, almost, but not quite navy cream. I used two coats in the above photos. This dried kinda dull, so I added top coat in the second picture and that made a world of difference. I'm currently wearing this color and I really adore this shade of blue.
Oy-Another Polish Joke!:
Oy-Another Polish Joke! is a yellow-gold shimmer. My camera wigged out with this one, especially in direct sunlight, but I was able to capture it's true color. The formula is thin, but I think it's supposed to be.. so you can wear Oy-Another Polish Joke! as a topper over a darker color. I used three coats in the above pictures and you can still see some VNL, but I still like this color none-the-less.
Polka.Com contains light blue, hot pink, and teal hex glitter, along with some micro glitter in a clear base. The formula with Polka.Com was fantastic!! You all know I'm an indie-lover and own tons of glitter toppers, so I was leery as to the quality of Polka.Com, but not to worry-- it's great!! I used one flawless coat over You're Such A Budapest followed by top coat.
Suzi's Hungary Again!:
I'm in love with Suzi's Hungary Again!! I'll admit, my first thought was: "This reminds me of Strawberry Margarita." I'll have to grab my bottle and compare the two. This is such a gorgeous warm-toned pink with just a hint of peach and very subtle shimmer. Suzi's Hungary Again! has a great formula. I used two coats.
**There you have my first six swatches of OPI's Euro Centrale Collection. I'll be back soon with the remaining six. My personal favorites out of these are: Suzi's Hungary Again!, You're Such a Budapest, and Polka.Com (in that order). Spring Collections are always my favorite because they're usually the most diverse.. just like the various shades in this collection! :)**
