Classic meets contemporary with Euro Centrale by OPI for Spring/Summer 2013. Celebrating a region where history meets modern design, the collection’s twelve new nail lacquers offer a mixture of glamorous metallic hues; playful bright shades in periwinkle, aqua and pink; and creamy blues in indigo, midnight and aubergine.
“Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania make up an exciting new fashion hotspot,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “When visiting these countries, you’ll view Gothic churches alongside vibrant graffiti murals, blending two very different aesthetics. This fusion of old and new was also seen in runway looks during New York Fashion Week, where classic styles were reinvented with modern silhouettes and patterns.
“Euro Centrale boasts a wide variety of shades, ranging from pale nude to deep blue – and featuring everything from shimmering copper to aqua in between!,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Whether you’re looking to spice up a black and white print, or add neutrality to a vivid brocade, these lacquers are designed to accessorize spring’s hottest looks.”

I'm extremely excited over Polka.com and Hands Off My Kielbasa! Other than that, I think there are similar shades in existing collection. A Woman's Prague-active reminds me of Sprung from Mariah Carey's Collection. Oy - Another Polish Joke! is kinda similar to Golden Eye from Skyfall Collection and Suzi's Hungary AGAIN looks close to Elephantastic Pink from the India Collection. Within the Euro Centrale Collection itself, OPI Eurso Euro and I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw... both looks kinda similar too. But I can't tell for sure that they're dupe until I see the swatches. Nonetheless, I will definitely get Polka.com. I think the glitery combo is a breath of fresh air.
What do you think about this collection? Will you be getting any shades?
