OPI Euro Centrale Collection Review *Pic Heavy*

I hate to admit this but I am a little behind... but better late then never right? Sadly as I'm writing this I feel some illness creeping up on me so I will try to be quick and to the point. Today I have my swatches of the OPI Euro Collection. This collection is very special to me because it has a few "Polish" named polishes and well I couldn't be happier that my two Polish worlds have collided!  This is a really fun collection. Even though half of the collection is very Blue/Purplish there still a good mix of colors here. As a whole collection I did not have any issues with any of these. The formulas were outstanding and what I've come to expect from OPI. I found myself really liking the polishes I didn't think were my style. Overall a well composed collection and the names are sure to put a smile on your face!

My Vampire is buff is a perfect creamy ivory! This is the only formula I wish was a little better. It wasn't bad but it wasn't as opaque as I wanted it to be. It was more like a 2-3 coater. However once you give it a chance the payback is amazing! 

I had no issues with Vant to bite my neck. Not a very memorable purple for me, a little too dark for my taste. 

I layered this over Vant to bite my neck, and while I didn't care for it much on it's own, with Polka.com over it it was a winning pair. The glitters really stood out and the smaller purple glitters looked great over that dark purple background. This is a glitter combo that really appeals to me, it's got my two favorite colors in it, Purple and teal and I don't even mind the pink that's thrown in. Such a fun glitter mix!

I put a coat of matte over it in this picture. It looked great both glossy or matte!
I saw... you saw... we saw... Warsaw..... while the name is cute it's toooooo long. Like Vant to bite my neck this too just didn't do much for me, the formula is great, gave me lots of control but it's just a dark navy blue to me. 

You're such a budapest might just be the best Periwinkle shade ever! This creme had a little tiny bit of shimmer to the base , you can't really see it in the pictures , maybe a little in the 3rd picture but it was a nice touch to make this polish really memorable for me. Such a delicate color.

In the bottle Can't find my czechbook looks a little dusty. Once on the nail it dries to a more vibrant color. It's funny because it matches my office walls almost perfect! Love this blue! This is exactly the blue I was after and what I was hoping the  blue would be from the Shrek collection... Ogre the Top blue. This is my kind of blue! 

The formula on this reminded me a lot of Revlon Royal. Even down the the smell, they both have this odd smell. I would compare the two however my bottle of Revlon Royal committed suicide and is the first bottle that's ever separated on me and gone bad to where it's not fixable. So I was more than happy to find a replacement in Opi... Eurso Euro. I will keep an eye on this because I think I'll be pulling it out and using it more since it's really such an amazing color! Just a lot more vibrant than I saw you saw we saw warsaw. 

Oy-Another Polish joke was not one I thought I'd like. For one thing it's Yellow! I tend to stay away from Yellows, but this shimmered and shined like crazy. I thought it might be similar to goldeneye from the Bond collection but was completely different more yellow. It's hard for me to find a Yellow I enjoy wearing and that looks good on me. This one managed to do both of those things so I ended up liking it.

A Women's Prague-ative is like the older orange brother to the yellow Polish Joke you just saw. Another I didn't think I'd like but loved once on the nail. It was so growly it almost had that wow factor of how does it shine so much! OPI really messed with my brains with this one and the yellow one since those are my two least favorite polish colors yet I love these two shimmers! 

Suzi's hungary again dries a little brighter once on the nail than what it is in the bottle. I liked it, not bad for a pink!

My Paprika is hotter than yours is one of those confusing colors. It reminds me of a shirt I own that is very similar to this color and I can never decide it if it's red or orange. hah depending on the way the light hits it my eyes reads it different. This color in person is red in these pictures it appears a little more orangish. I used in in some nail art drawing hearts and they looked red so beats me. This one also dries a little more vibrant than what it looks like in the bottle. It's just a really fun and loud color! 

Okay so in the bottle when I first saw this I thought to myself eekk what a horrible color. Well my first impression was wrong about this one. I put it on and it blew me away. The color was very flattering against my skin tone and it has this very pretty slight metallic sheen to it. I would have really dismissed this polish in the store. I've had a few polish prove me wrong once they get on my nails and this is for sure one of those that deserved a second look because it wasn't what I expected!
