OPI Euro Centrale Collection

In honour of my first EVER blog post, I have the entire OPI Euro Centrale spring/summer 2013 collection for you all!  I've never purchased an entire OPI collection before, mainly because they are expensive where I live, but I have recently discovered a local beauty supply store that sells them for about half of what I would normally have to pay.  So of course I had to have them all!

First up I have "Hands Off My Kielbasa!".  It's very almost like a darker version of "A Butterfly Moment" from the recent Mariah Carey collection. It is a nude pink colour with a strong bronze shimmer.

Hands Off My Kielbasa!
Get your own... this bronzy tan is all mine!

Next is "Suzi's Hungary AGAIN!".  It's a medium toned pink cream and reminds me of spring.

 Thank goodness there are zero calories in this warm and yummy pink!

"My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours!" is an amazingly bright red toned orange.  My husband says it reminds him of the orange car from Dukes of Hazard.  I don't know about that, but I do know that this shade is a head turner!

Get the extinguisher... this fiery red is sizzling!

"My Vampire Is Buff" is one of my favourites from this collection.  It is beautifully creamy looking on the nail, and application is a dream.  I had no problems with streaking or patchiness with this polish.

My Vampire Is Buff
Creamy, pale nude... just how I like my vampires.

"A Woman's Prague-ative" is a stunning Orange coppery micro glitter.  It has great coverage and was opaque in just two coats!

 I'm changing this shimmery copper for... never mind!

"Oy-Another Polish Joke!" is a yellowy golden micro glitter.  It's very similar to "A Woman's Prague-ative" in every was except colour.

Oy-Another Polish Joke!
So this shimmery-gold walks into a bar...

"Vant To Bite My Neck?" is my favourite of the whole collection!  It's a very deep eggplant purple.  I was surprised at how much I loved this polish on because its not a colour I'd usually be drawn too, but I'm so glad I own this shade!  Application and coverage is a dream.

Vant To Bite My Neck?
You know you want to... wear this deep eggplant.

"Can't Find My Czechbook" is a beautiful creamy aqua blue.  It's another shade that reminds me of spring time.

Can't Find My Czechbook
I hope you take credit, because I must have this aqua!

"You're Such A BudaPest" is a light lavender shade.  I was surprised by this polish because I didn't notice that it had a slight purple-blue shimmer to it until I went to go paint it on.  The shimmer was very hard to capture in a photo. 

You're Such A BudaPest
If I let you borrow this periwinkle-purple, will you go away?

"I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw" is another one of my favourites of this collection.  This creamy midnight blue is stunning on the nail.  It's application is a dream come true and you can get away with only one coat!

I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw
Be seen in this deep midnight blue.

"OPI...Eurso Euro" is a funky colour thats kind of hard to describe.  It is a deep blue cream colour that kind of leans just slightly purple.  I had a hard time capturing this colour in a photo.

OPI...Eurso Euro
This deep blue cream is very continental.

Last but not least is "".  It's Pink, blue and purple hex glitter with purple micro glitter mixed in.  It applies nicely and I didn't have a problem with it getting chunky.  My favourite thing about this polish is the name, it's just so clever! over You're Such a BudaPest
Blue and violet are dancing partners in this glittery combo. over Can't Find My Czechbook

  1. I found the aplication dificult with a couple of them. Did you have any issues? I do love the colors though! Great post!

    1. Yes I agree, the shimmer shades were harder to apply, and they were streaky yet still kind of thick and hard to work with.

  2. Beautiful swatches! I really want Can't Find My Czechbook, You're Such a Budapest and My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! I really shouldn't be buying more polish though haha. I wish I could find a beauty supply where they are half price! All the ones around my area require expensive yearly membership so it wouldn't really be worth it.

    1. That is too bad! I just recently discovered a couple of BeUty Supply Stores that offer half price, or close to it! That's the only reason I bought every shade.
