OPI Euro Centrale Collection Swatches, Review Part 2

As I'd mentioned in my OPI Euro Centrale Swatches and Review Part 1, this collection is a tribute to the European states, especially the Eastern-central ones like Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania.  The eclectic mix of colors and finishes also pays homage to the wealth of traditions and rich cultural history of this particular region.

Here are the rest of my swatches!

OPI Euro Centrale
OPI My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours!








OPI My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours! is such a gorgeous red orange cream with hidden shimmer.  It's unusual that OPI did not include a true red in a collection, but this is the closest to red in this particular bunch.  It applies well on the nails and is just a bright, happy shade.

 OPI Vant to Bite My Neck?





 OPI Vant to Bite My Neck? is in my opinion the prettiest dark color in this collection.  It is a gorgeous eggplant cream.  It is opaque in two coats and just looks amazing - no streaking at all and was a joy to apply.


OPI Euro Centrale


OPI Eurso Euro is another pretty shade.  It's a deep blue cream, but lighter than OPI I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw.  It's also opaque in two coats and has the same great formula as most of the creams in this collection - neither too thick nor too runny.

OPI I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw





OPI I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw is a nice midnight blue.  I like the other two deeper shades than this, but it's just a matter of personal preference.

 OPI Polka.com over Eurso Euro


I am a sucker for purples so  OPI Polka.com is a favorite.  How precious are blue and violet glitters mixed in a clear base?  I love how it gives new dimension to Eurso Euro which is just a straight cream.

All in all, I am liking most of the shades in this collection.  I think it's a pretty, eclectic mix of fun summer/spring and fall shades.  I am especially loving the creams because they applied well and did not give me a hard time.  I also love the glass fleck coppery gold in A Woman's Prague-ative because it just looks so fiery and fierce.

Which shades catch your fancy?

The ones I like best are the blues. I also like the purple and that glitter. Polka.com looked so pretty over Want To Bite my neck? ISUSWSW looks to pull a bit of teal to me.
