OPI EURO CENTRALE COLLECTION + SWATCHES

I was so beyond stoked for this collection because not only were all of the colors really great and wearable, but there were a ton of them! I only picked up four on this go around but I know that over the coming weeks I will definitely be picking up at least two or three more.

I got the colors 'You're Such A Budapest', 'Can't Find My Czechbook', 'My Vampire is Buff' and 'Suzi's Hungary... Again!'. All were opaque in just two coats and are pictured without a top coat.

From L to R: 'You're Such A Budapest', 'Can't Find My Czechbook', 'My Vampire is Buff' and 'Suzi's Hungary... Again!'
You're Such A Budapest is a pale blue-lilac creme, absolutely perfect for Spring. Essie's 'Splash of Grenadine' is pinker while OPI's 'Do You Lilac It?' is a bit dustier and darker.

Can't Find My Czechbook was a tricky one for me. I thought for sure it was going to be a dupe for my all-time favorite OPI polish 'What's with the Cattitude?' but it's actually quite different! It pulls a little greener and dustier and it definitely darker on the nail than in the bottle.

My Vampire is Buff is such a refreshing shade in my collection because it's a pale neutral that 1. isn't sheer like allllll natural/neutral polishes and 2. it's a bit yellowy! I would call it just a very pale yellow creme. This was the streakiest of the three but don't let that fool you, it is still great with two thin coats. I had no problems with it, just note that it's the streakiest of these four!

Suzi's Hungary... Again! is a slightly coraly pink and really.. that's the reason I bought it. I'm not a huge pink or red polish girl but coral anything will have me hooked. Much prettier in the sun than indoors and in shading.

Overall, very impressed with this quad of polishes. I can't wait to wear these this spring and I really can't wait to get more of this collection!!

Do any of y'all own some of these polishes? Which ones?
