Review & Nail Art: OPI Euro Centrale Collection

Hey everyone!

Today, I have the twelve piece Euro Centrale Collection from OPI. Instead of doing my typical swatches, I decided to incorporate some nail art. Let's get started! ;)

For my first manicure, I attempted to take a shot at the interlocking dots technique. It isn't perfect, but I guess it isn't too bad for my first take. Practice, Practice, Practice! I will perfect you, interlocking mani, I will! ;) 

I used Can't Find My Czechbook which is an aqua blue creme and Vant to Bite My Neck which is a gorgeous, deep purple creme. CFMC required two coats for opacity while VTBMN only required one generous coat.

For my second mani, I did a very simple dotticure using four colors from this collection. I'm really pleased with the combination of colors and its overall finish. 

For the base, I used My Vampire is Buff which is an off white beige creme. Then for the dots I used, You're Such a Budapest which is a soft, periwinkle purple with a touch of shimmer, OPI... Euroso Euro which is an intense cobalt/royal blue, and I Saw...U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw which is a navy blue, teal creme. 

In the third photo, I created the famous, cloud manicure using four other colors from this collection.

For the base I used, Hands Off My Kielbasa, an antique, peachy/rose shimmer. For the clouds I used, My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours, a vivid, hot coral shimmer, Oy-Another Polish Joke which is a clear base with gold and yellow shimmers, and A Womans Prague-ative, a copper/orange shimmer. 

Lastly, I used Suzi's Hungary Again, a coral/pink shimmer as my base and applied one coat of, a clear base packed with purple glitter and medium fuchsia, aqua, and purple hexes.
