swatched: opi germany collection
It still feels like hot, sticky summer around here, but Fall and Winter collections are popping up everywhere I look. I’m not ready to retire my summer brights just yet, but there are definitely some winners in OPI’s latest, the Germany Collection. Here are a few quick finger swatches to give you a taste…
Thumb: Don’t Talk Bach To Me is a lime/yellow creme. I don’t love this shade on me, but for a polish in this tricky color, the formula is impressive.
Pointer: Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! is a great dark, glossy grey. Nothing revolutionary here, but I always love a good grey and I’m sure I’ll be wearing this one a lot.
Middle: Berlin There Done That is a deep taupe/grey with a beautiful smooth formula.
Ring: Don’t Pretzel My Buttons!, a classic beige, applied to opacity in two coats. This is a fairly standard neutral polish that will likely work on a range on skin tones.
Pinky: I really like My Very First Knockwurst, a pale nude with a hint of pink. It’s not sheer at all, which is a plus in my book.
Pinky: Suzi & The 7 Dusseldorfs is a very fun, bright purple with a hint of shimmer.
Ring: Unfor-greta-bly Blue – I have a lot of polish in this cobalt blue shade these days, but I like it nonetheless.
Middle: German-icure by OPI is tricky to describe. It has a hint of purple, a bit of brown, and copper shimmer running through it. Good dimension and shine.
Pointer: Every Month is Oktoberfest is a gorgeous deep purple with a hint of ruby red and a lot of shimmer.
Thumb: Danke-Shiny Red, a bright, shimmery candy-apple red. Great formula and could have been a one-coater. It reminds me a bit of the classic China Glaze Ruby Pumps.
Right: Deutsche You Want Me Baby? is my favorite polish from this collection, and it happens to have an awesome name, too. It’s a shimmery pumpkin-orange, and I can’t wait to wear it this fall.
Overall, this is a very solid collection with great formulas across the board. I like a lot of them, but my top two are dark grey Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! (despite the name) and the gorgeous orange Deutsche You Want Me Baby?.
