OPI Euro Centrale and Skyfall Nail Polish Collections

Michelle from Beauty Editor just  posted a preview of OPI’s  Spring collection which is called Euro Centrale. It was inspired by Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Romania.

I personally love the light blue which is called Can’t Find my Czechbook the best, at least judging by the promo photo.

Since the Spring collection is not yet available you can get something from the Skyfall collection.

The shades are: Golden Eye,

Nails Of the Day: Nicole by OPI Iceberg Lotus

I have been wearing Nicole by OPI Iceberg Lotus nail polish for the last several days.

First of all, I have to say that that I absolutely love the name and the colour.  But the most special thing about this nail polish is that my brother picked it up for me, I mean  the brand and the colour, it was his decision. I did not even ask for it.

I am very happy to see that he picked up something so pretty, makes me proud 🙂

On the nails it looks like a greenish  turquoise, the shade depends on the light and angle.

The formula is very smooth and applies nicely. I get the intensity that I want with

OPI Germany Nail Polish Collection for Autumn 2012

I am always loving all the OPI collections inspired the the countries and am always excited to see what country will inspire the next collection. The country for A/W is Germany and no one does the names as OPI, right?!

There are twelve shades as usual and they are:

  • Don’t Pretzel My Buttons, a haute honey-beige that can always make you smile.
  •  My Very First Knockwurst …and what a magical rosy-nude rendezvous it was!
  •  Berlin There, Done That, a travelling taupe that’s seen it all. (Yep, that too)
  •  Don’t Talk Back to Me, there’s nothing mellow about this sassy lime-yellow.
  •  Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!, a bodacious black-olive? We say “Ja! Ja! Ja!”
  •  Unfor-Greta-bly Blue, everyone’s favourite Fräulein loves

Wear Teal Nail Varnish to Supports Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

March is the month of Ovarian Cancer Awareness. This is the second year when OPI and Lena White are donating £1 to the charity for every £11 bottle sold.

You can read more about the campaign and everything about it in the post that I’ve written last year.

I think it’s very important to support this case so please do so if you can!

Last year that shade was  OPI Ski Teal We Drop and this year it’s OPI Teal the Cows Come Home ( £11).

Essie and OPI Nail Polish Collections for Spring 2012

I’ve already shown you most of the Winter/Holiday 2011 nail polish collections here and here.

And today we have  a preview of two gorgeous collections for Spring 2012. If I am not a huge fan of pastel makeup on myself (which is a huge trend for Spring 2012), I do like some pastel nail polishes.

And I really like this Essie nail polish collection. The pastel lime green is really pretty, I’ll have to get it.

  • navigate her, a light, bright green
  • a crewed interest, a luminous peach shade
  • to buy or not to buy, a lavender with shimmer
  • tour de finance, a fuschia with shimmer
  • olé caliente, a red-orange with pink undertone
  • orange, it’s obvious, orange, a bright orange

And here is also a Holland inspired collection from OPI.

Thanks to Michelle from Beauty Editor (a must-read blog, by the way) for the promo photos. The lovely Mercedez has swatches of the whole OPI collection, so you can check them out here.

Although I love dark nail polishes I am kind of excited for Spring shades, I think I should get some nude and pastel shades for my collection.
