OPI Euro Centrale Spring/Summer 2013 Swatches and Review

This year's spring and summer offering, Euro Centrale by OPI.





Vant to Bite My Neck? 2 coats.  Rich purple creme that was opaque and easy to apply.


My Vampire is Buff 3 coats. This is a very pale almost white sandy creme.


OPI... Eurso Euro 2 coats.  Surprisingly opaque on the second coat, the first felt dicey because it applied so thin and sheer almost like a jelly.


Polka.com 3 coats.  Dark turquoise, dark pink and light purple hexes with very small purple hex glitter in a clear base.  At 3 coats you can see this is still sparse, so I would layer it.  I did try to do a gradient french but it wasn't dense enough.  The base formula was just right for glitter.


Here is 1 coat of Polka.com over OPI...Eurso Euro.






 I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw 2 coats.  A deep, dark blue creme.  I would like to note that referencing this polish will be a pain, ISUSWSW?!  Maybe just Warsaw...


OY-Another Polish Joke!  3 coats.  Sheer, shimmery gold.


1 coat of OY-Another Polish Joke! over (here we go) I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw.


A Woman's Prague-ative 3 coats.  After the first coat, I thought this was going to be very peachy but after each coat it built up color to this glowy dark orange with golden shimmer.


Hands Off My Kielbasa! 2 coats.  Described by OPI as a bronzy tan, I don't really see it.  When I wear it looks more peachy to me.


 My Paprika is Hotter than Yours! 3 coats.  Dark orange with a subtle shimmer.  The formula was very thin and difficult to work with.   This is also much darker than photographed here.

This is a more color-accurate photo and you can see the bit of silver shimmer.  When you wear it you probably won't be able to see the shimmer at all.

Suzi's Hungary AGAIN! 3 coats.  Warn pink with a subtle silver shimmer.  This was also thin and difficult to work with.


Can't Find My Czechbook 2 coats.  This blue is cheery and makes me wish for warm spring weather.  The formula was thin but it is opaque enough for 2 coats.


You're Such a BudaPest 3 coats.  Pale lavender with a pretty shimmer.  The formula was thin and runny.  You can see my ridges even with 3 coats.

I have mixed feelings about the formula because the colors that I liked, the pastels, were thin and hard to apply.  The darker colors and the glitter were nice and creamy.  Overall, I thought the colors were pretty for both spring and summer.  My favorite is Can't Find My Czechbook, I just love light blues!

This collection is available now where OPI is sold.  I just noticed that they increased the price from $8.50 to $9.00, just a heads up for anyone that didn't know.

Sent to me for review.
