Amor de Lacquer: OPI Germany collection (part I)

Piccies1

Who wants to go to Germany? I dooooo! I love when OPI launches collections inspired by countries. One of my college girlfriends just moved to Germany (hey Kam!) and it’s taking everything in me  to not invite myself over. I’m pretty sure that when the baby in my belly is a good 6 months or so, I’ll be bookin’ a flight. Seriously.

My favorite thing about these kind of OPI collections? The names of the polishes! There are 12 kids in this collection but here’s round 1….

Don’t Talk Bach to Me is described as a sassy lime yellow but I see it more as a silvery pistachio. If you’ve always liked lime polishes but didn’t like how bright they were, this is a nice polish to try.

Schnapps Out Of It is a mauve but I see it as a dusty pumpkin. At first glance it looked like a Grandma color but once I got it on, it wasn’t so bad. I’m not sure if I’d wear it solo but I would so throw some glitter on Schnapps and keep on truckin’.

My Very First Knockwurst is rosy-nude that I’d file under “Work Appropriate Nail Polishes”. Application was tough with this one and it took a good 3 coats for me to get it even.

Berlin Done That looks like gray but really it has more of a dirty mop water hue to it. It’s a slightly more attractive color than OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques. I’m not a fan of taupe shades like this. I wish I was but they always look so weird on my complexion.

Deutsch You Want Me Baby? is a shimmery red orange and it’s a gorgeous addition to this collection. It reminds me of a less shimmery version of OPI’s DS Luxurious and isn’t as orange as China Glaze’s Riveting. It’s so pretty. Love this one!

Don’t Pretzel My Button is a honey beige that I ended up liking more than I thought I would. I very rarely wear beige polishes but every now and then I like sporting a no frills kind of polish. DPMB is the perfect fix for that.

Must Haves:
-Deutsch You Want Me Baby?: A total must have if you’re a fan of the orangey red polishes of the world.
-Don’t Pretzel My Button: Because every nail polish lover needs a basic beige in his or her stash.

This first half of the OPI Germany collection didn’t impress me too much. I didn’t think any of the shades were THAT groundbreaking. The good news? The second half of the collection is full of beautiful vampy polishes…the kind of vampies that I LOVE wearing during the Fall. Stay tuned for Part II. In the meantime, if you’re swooning after any of these, I’ve spotted them at Ulta stores for $8.50 a bottle.

    The Pretzel one is a nice nude, but Swedish Nude is the best from OPI!

    Are you preggers?!? Congrats girl! What an exciting time for you! So, about the nail polish. This is a nice collection. I’m really digging Don’t Talk Bach to Me on your skin tone, although it probably wouldn’t look as good on my pasty pale white skin!

    • Brittany

      Yup, I’m preggers alright. Thanks mama! And hush your speak…DTBTM would look fantastic on you!
