OPI Spring 2013 Euro Centrale Swatches and Review
It’s been a super busy week, but I wanted to complete this review so badly! I swatched 2-3 polishes each night until the collection was done just so I could have it up for you by this weekend!
Here is the entire OPI Euro Centrale Collection! I have been waiting for these to come out and was so excited to get my hands on them. Absolutely perfect for spring, but there are still some deeper shades mixed in as well. I do plan on playing with some nail art ideas with this collection as soon as time allows.
Let’s take a look!
You’re Such A Budapest:
You’re Such A Budapest is one of my favorites from this collection! This is a gorgeous pale lilac with the slightest shimmer in it. I only needed 2 coats for full coverage, but I will say I wasn’t so sure about it on the first coat. With just 1 coat it looked like it may be a streaky polish, but the second coat evened everything out and provided great coverage.
Closeup so you can see the slight hint of shimmer:
OPI… Eurso Euro:
Color wise – OPI…Eurso Euro was a hit! The formula wasn’t spectacular but it wasn’t awful. It provided good coverage but seemed a tiny bit on the watery side. OPI…Eurso Euro struck me as a crelly formula (halfway between a creme and a jelly) so I got the awesome creme opacity but the squishy jelly look. It’s a beautiful royal blue and I only needed 2 coats for this photo.
I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw:
I Saw…We Saw…U Saw…Warsaw is a nice deep navy blue creme. I only needed 2 coats for this photo. I don’t love it as much as I love OPI…Eurso Euro, but it is still a beautiful blue shade.
Vant To Bite My Neck?
Vant To Bite My Neck? is a deep eggplant purple creme. I love purples so this was a hit for me. Formula was good and I only needed 2 coats for this photo!
My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours!
Bring on the bright colors! My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! is a sizzling hot red-orange! Such a nice, bright and fun color! There is a very subtle shimmer within this one as well, unfortunately it’s hard to capture. I only used 2 coats for this photo.
Suzi’s Hungary Again:
Suzi’s Hungary Again is another subtle shimmer polish. This one is a nice, bright rosy pink creme. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Can’t Find My Czechbook:
Can’t Find My Czechbook wins for favorite name of the collection. Mainly because I always lose my checkbook :/ This one is a slightly murky aqua blue creme. Great coverage and I only needed 2 coats.
Hands Off My Kielbasa!
I wasn’t so sure about this one when I saw it in the bottle, but once I put it on I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. This is a nice “work” color for me. This is a nice neutral pink shade that is packed with shimmer. I was expecting it to have a lot of brush strokes visible as well, but it didn’t. I only needed 2 coats for this photo.
A Woman’s Prague-Ative:
A Woman’s Prague-Ative is another favorite! This is a fiery beauty. I posted a photo on my Facebook page and I had this on, I got a few comments and PM’s asking what I was wearing! Well ladies – this was it! A Woman’s Prague-ative is a coppery orange shimmer with a bit of gold mixed in. I only needed 2 coats for this photo.
My Vampire Is Buff:
My Vampire Is Buff is a creamy pale nude polish. Not a color I would wear regularly. Might make for some nice undies while swatching or doing nail art. I only needed 2 coats for this.
I decided to layer Polka.com over My Vampire is Buff to fully show off the glitters. Polka.com has fuchsia, aqua and purple hex glitters as well as small purple glitter all mixed into a clear base. This is only 1 coat of Polka.com and as you can see, I got plenty of glitters out each time!

Oy-Another Polish Joke:
Oy-Another Polish Joke is a gorgeous gold shimmer polish. This has the look of a finely packed glitter, but with NONE of the hassle! This is a dazzler in the sunlight as well as indoor lighting. Removal is a BREEZE! None of that scrubbing. I used 2 coats for this photo. Seriously, this IS the polish for those who hate removing glitter but want a little dazzle on their tips!
And that concludes the OPI Euro Centrale Collection! Not too bad, I do wish the polishes with shimmer were a little more obvious glitter wise. Formula wise though, they were all really nice to work with. All of them were 2 coaters, no streaks, bubbles or super runny. The only one I probably won’t reach for much is My Vampire Is Buff, but that is just based on personal color preference.
