OPI Euro Centrale Collex. Spring 2013: Swatches

Here are the 12 new colors for Spring 2013 from OPI.

"Classic meets contemporary" is how OPI describes their new collection, do you agree?

"OPI Eurso..Euro"
2 coats, no top coat

Vibrant indigo creme. This is an indigo that leans more blue, it is very pretty and perfectly opaque in 2 coats.

1 coat, on the tips, no top coat

Given that fact that this glitter has a clear base I decided to put it on top of "OPI Eurso..Euro" half way, but I see now that was a bad idea, LOL. This is a pink, teal and blue glitter suspended in a clear base, best if used as a glitter topper to your manicure.  :) My bottle was a bit thick, but still easy to apply :0

"Suzi's Hungary AGAIN!"
3 coats, no top coat

Another warm bubble gum pink with shimmer.It applied well in 2 coats, but left me with blotches  so 3 was needed. Great for spring, but the color is not all that original .

"You're Such A Budapest"
2 coats, no top coat

Great lavender creme with a slight shimmer. Whenever I swatch lavender cremes, I always compare them to OPI "Rumples Wiggin" in application, since RW is a bit thin. This was better than RW, but still thin. Never the less, I love this color.

I think I'm falling in love with all the "wispy" pastels for Spring. Something must be wrong with me, LOL!!!

"Can't Find My Czechbook"
2 coats, no top coat

Blue aqua creme. Pretty color for Spring, and easy to apply, but again , not very unique.

"My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours!"
2 coats, no top coat

Great bright orange creme with shimmer. The shimmer is subtle, but tit's there. I loved this color and formula, perfect in 2 coats.

"Hands Off My Kielbasa!"
2 coats, no top coat

This is a salmony shimmery frost.  The color is pretty and looks good on the hands, but the frosty side of it is killing me. Perfect in 2 coats, and please excuse the smudge on my index finger :(

"A Woman's Prague-Ative"
2 coats, no top coat

A bright as a brand new penny! This shimmery copper is amazing, and the act that it has more of an orange tone sets it apart!  Great coverage in 2 coats.

"OY-Another Polish Joke"
1 coat over "A Woman's Prague-Ative", and 3 coats on the accent nail, no top coat

I decided to mix this p a bit. I decided to top "OY-Another Polish Joke" over "A Woman's Prague-Ative" to show that it can be a great golden top coat as well as a sheer dazzler on its own. Given that with 3 coats it's still sheer, I'll most likely use it as a golden topper :)

"Vant To Bite My Neck?"
2 coats, no top coat

Oh yeah, bring on the purples! This color is surprisingly deep for a Spring shade, but still very welcomed and nice in this collection. A deep eggplant purple, or more like a deep concord grape creme, YUM! Perfect in 2 coats and nearly opaque in 1 coat. The color is not very unique, but deep colors like this can be used often and look great on most skin-tones.

"I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw"
2 coats, no top coat

Oh how I love my blues,  and a dark marine blue creme is even BETTER! It's not quite a dark royal blue, and it's not a navy creme, it's more like a dark marine blue. So pretty! Great in 2 coats.

"My Vampire Is Buff"
2 coats, no top coat

Not my favorite. I mean,  it's a buff creme...that's it. It does have tones of peach in it, so it's not your standard "buff", but it's there, LOL :) Opaque in 2 coats, although 3 may be needed to cover up some bald spots.

My favorites are: "I Saw...You Saw...We Saw...Warsaw", "I Vant To Bite Your Neck", "You're Such A  Budapest", "OPI Eurso... Euro" and"A Woman's Prague-Ative" :)
