OPI Euro Centale Collection SS2013 Swatches and Review [Part 1]
It’s usually not my style to break up a collection post in multiple posts but this time I had to do it. Guess who ran out of her favorite nail polish remover mid swatching? That’s right, this girl. Part 2 will be up shortly.
Can’t Find My Czechbook – Beautiful vivid sky blue cream finish. (Dupes: Nicole by OPI “I Sea You and Raise You” is bluer and not as green)
You’re Such a Budapest – I’m addicted to the color periwinkle. I need to find a way to add more of it to my wardrobe. This periwinkle leans more toward the lavender end and the finish is semi-opaque. It also has glassy whisper shimmer which only makes it a little more whimsical.
Vant to Bite My Neck? – Vampy violet cream. There’s nothing unique about this color but the quality and opacity is great. I don’t suspect people will go wild over this one.
OPI… Eurso Euro – Inky deep royal blue cream. (Dupes: Not nearly as vivid and fun as Revlon Top Speed “Royal” but a lot more fun than OPI “Road House Blues”)
I Saw… U Saw… We Saw… Warsaw – Congratulations, you’ve been awarded the title of having one of the longest polish names ever! Nonetheless, you’re still a gorgeous deep teal cream. (Dupes: I can’t think of any off the top of my head that are this blue because the ones I own are more teal green such has Nicole by OPI “Khloe Has a Little Lam Lam”)
Polka.com – What a cute name, right? This one is a clear base with hot pink, purple, and turquoise hexagon glitter with tiny bits of purple glitter. I’m on a glitter kick right now and this one is really cute over a deep colored base. I think adding it over something light makes it more youthful and less age appropriate for me.
I’m going to out go on a limb here and say that I suspect a formula change has been made. The creams were nice and rich but noticeably more pigmented than I remember OPI being. I mean this in a good way. OPI is already the bee’s knees but these were really good. I have ridges from growing out my pointed tips (over 19 weeks ago) and the creams only required 2 thin coats, I could have even stretched it to 1 coat. OPI fans are loyal and have a cult-like following. I don’t think we’ll be seeing any “new and improved” or “new formulas” labeling even if I am right. OPI is not a brand that would need to make such an announcement. But hey…I could be wrong.
Euro Centrale by OPI will be available early February, at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.
