Today I've got half of OPI's big spring collection for this year, Euro Centrale. This half is the warmer hues; I'll have the cooler ones tomorrow if all goes according to plan.
My Vamp Is Buff is a French vanilla creme. I used three coats; it was at bit streaky but not crazily so for such a light color.
Suzi's Hungary Again is a coral-leaning pink with a very subtle shimmer. I found the formula of this one to be on the thin side; I used four coats for this swatch in order to banish visible nail line.
Here's a closeup of the shimmer in low light:
My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours is a red-leaning orange with an even more subtle shimmer than the Hungary pink. I used three coats of this one.
I couldn't get the shimmer in Paprika to show up on my nails on camera, even in low light. I know it's there because I saw a stripe of it sticking to the inside of the bottle before I shook it (well, not shook—rolled between my palms) to make sure it was mixed.
Hands Off My Kielbasa is a dusty peach shimmer that leans toward being frosty. I'm thinking we could travel back in time to the 70s and this would fit right in. This was a two-coater for me.
Here's Kielbasa in low light:
Oy Another Polish Joke is a golden yellow flecked shimmer. At three coats, there's still a hint of visible nail line, which is not a great look with a yellow polish as far as I'm concerned. The shimmer is quite pretty in this one; if I'd had more time, I would have tried layering it over a skintone base to get all of the shimmer with none of the VNL.
Polish Joke really gets its glow on in low light:
A Woman's Prague-ative is a copper flecked shimmer. I used three coats for this and got full coverage.
Here's Prague in low light:
A Woman's Prague-ative wins this half of the collection for me, while Don't Touch My Kielbasa is on the bottom. What are your picks?
