Euro Centrale by OPI


Euro Centrale by OPI for Spring and Summer 2013.

Did the ‘Spring and Summer’ that piqued my interest? At just January, I’m already so tired of the Winter season.

Or, was it ‘Euro Centrale’ that sparked my curiosity, feeling the memories take hold of my past European vacation.

Either way, I was eager to check out the new OPI Collection, all inspired by the fashion runways of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania.

Take a look at these colors!

With the Euro Centrale by OPI for Spring/Summer 2013, Classic meets contemporary with the celebration of a region where history meets modern design, like gothic churches alongside vibrant graffiti murals.

One color that surprised me was ‘I Saw…U Saw…We Saw..Warsaw‘, which looks black from far away. Get close, and you see such a deep midnight blue, with a bit rich Caribbean undertone from the shimmer. It’s much more of a multi-faceted polish than I expected {not the best photo for this one, yet it shows the nice shimmer to it}.

My fave of the bunch is ‘You’re Such A Budapest‘, a lovely lavender. For this one I needed 2 layers to get the right coverage. The definition of ‘Spring’, I loved wearing this on my fingers, yet I know will soon be found on my toes as well. For those in a Spring Wedding this year, and looking for a periwinkle hue, this ones for you – it’s such a lovely color.

I also tried layering ‘‘ over the  ‘You’re Such A Budapest‘, which gave it a different., playful look. I really like the mix of colors in ‘’, and while I’m not usually a ‘sparkle-based’ polish girl, I really like this one {which is best over a clear or light polish}. A mix of small and larger glitter, you can really notice it. And of course it quickly became my girls’ favorite of the set.

These shades, like all other OPI polishes contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde.

This is a sneak peek, my friends – the Euro Centrale by OPI collection won’t be seen in stores until February 6, 2013. At that time, shop at Professional Salons and spas, and each nail lacquer has an ARV of $10.95 CAN.

One Canadian reader is going to get the entire Euro Centrale by OPI! {arv $130.00}

  2. My wife would love this set. Maybe I could pick up some husband brownie points if I won her this.
    I think would love to see my wife wear vant to bite my neck.

  3. I totally LOVE the names OPI comes up with for naming their polishes. I like ” you`re such a Budapest”

  4. My husband said the other day. Why do women care about their nails so much. I said and their hair, face and body.
    I said.. What would women look like if they didn’t? After all were female. I take pride in how I look. I may have my down days but who doesn’t. I want to make a good, long lasting impression. You never know that person that you run into could maybe. Who Knows, the next person who interviews you. That person could be the next person who serves you. I really believe that looks isn’t everything, but a first impression is Everything!!

  5. vant to bite my neck , definitely! awesome giveway! thank you! my daughter would looove this!! she started making nail polish tutorials a year ago (at age 11). she has quite an impressive collection of polishes and she would be thrilled with this! i, myself, love the colours in this collection.

  6. What a fabulous new OPI Collection, Euro Centrale..woow !!! Love all of them, really good for all occasions. If I could have them all would be such a great treat in fact, for all of us me and my two dear daughters. We all love nail polish and enjoy so much all year round. Most brands chipped and do not last even few days and too bad wear out easily with simple task around the house like dish washing, cooking in the kitchen !! I cannot afford to buy expensive products, but grab whatever on sale and wrap as special gift and present for my 2 daughters’ Birthday and Christmas.
    It’s so very hard to pick just only one polish I like best. I will go for *A Woman’s Prague Alive* so magnificent color, alive and made me feel real special woman. Would be super excited to win and own OPI first time. What a special gift that I can hardly wait to share all this with my two loving daughters..wooow !!!
    Thank you and Happy New Year !!
