Today's colours I have for you are:

Don't Pretzel My Buttons - this is literally, liquid foundation in nail polish form lol! This is a really beautiful sandy/golden nude creme and applied perfectly! This is one coat, it is super opaque!


Berlin There Done That - a really nice mushroom-y taupe creme with a grey undertone, which is quite sheer and would be good with two coats. It might of been just my bottle, but the brush was a bit wonky, uh oh OPI! I used 1 coat here.

 Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! - a flat dark green/olive/grey creme.  This colour was quite opaque but I used 2 coats here to cover up baldness. I love this colour! I have nothing close to this colour in my collection, bingo!!

Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue - A simply gorgeous shimmery blue colour with hints of light blue micro shimmer! This blue is so much nicer on the nails than in the bottle! It is a very highly pigmented blue that has an irridescent glow and with a slight metallic finish (hence the brush strokes visible!) I'm in love! This is my favourite colour of the collection that I have tried so far!

Germani-Cure by OPI - A deep purple based ruby red with some coppery bronze components. WOW!. . . . .. . . . . WOW! Ok. . .this is also my favourite colour from the collection as well! So so gorgeous, trust me on this one, you need it! It is so much more exciting and incredible in real life! Very impressed! This only needed 1 coat for full opacity!

To me, this collection is exciting! It shouts out at me in every direction! I love the cremes, I love the shimmers, I love the overall colours, and all have great formulas, as always!

What do you think of the Germany collection? Which colours will you be getting?

Thanks for reading!

  1. I love the namnes of the different polishes. And some of them like Germani-Cure are really beautiful. But still I'm a bit dissapointed.

    1. Oh no, that's not good! I was really impressed, but i'm a sucker for anything new lol

  2. I think it's a funny mix of colours. *If* I buy some of them, it's going to be Suzi & The 7 Dusseldorfs, Every Month is Oktoberfest,
    Unfor-greta-bly Blue and German-icure by OPI. The dark shimmers, basically. :)
    Are you going to swatch Suzy & the 7 Dusseldorfs too?

    1. Yeah the dark shimmers are awesome (what i've tried so far anyways!)
      I wasn't able to get samples of every colour so I had to pick 5 (it was so hard to choose!) Hopefully swatches of other colours will be up soon!

  3. Gorgeous collection, one of the best in a while for OPI, your nails look great!

  4. awwwwesome preview! liking what i see, sadly for the wallet.

  5. Unfor-greta-bly Blue and German-icure by OPI are my favourites! Thanks for the swatches. :)

  6. Awesome swatches! I really love Pretzel My buttons. Love the polish and the name.

  7. Nein Nein Nein! Ok Fine! I love that name. It's so pretty too! I like the Unforgretbly blue as well. German-icure is pretty cool as well. Honestly, I like all except the first one that's like foundation. I'm not a nude nail kind of girl.
