OPI – Germanicure by OPI

OPI are seriously knocking collections out of the park at the moment, not only do they have the just released Skyfall/James Bond Collection, but the Germany Collection was completely amazing too!  What I have to show you today is from the Germany Collection, well I think the clue is in the name….

Let’s get straight onto the images as this is a beauty…

Germanicure is a deep russet red polish, with that wonderful lit from within quality that we have seen a lot in OPI polishes recently.  Its such a deep rich autumnal colour that just glows on the nail.  It is wonderful.  The images above are three thin coats over Essie all-in-one base coat and my recently ‘restored’ seche vite.  Formula was just perfect on this, thin, workable and self leveling.  Drying time between coats was excellent, I had prepped, painted and top coated within 20 minutes.

In the UK the official reseller of OPI is Lena White, its worth signing up to their newsletter as you often get sent discount codes.  There are plenty of other good outlets as well.  Pricing in the UK is £11 a bottle (thats $17.50 to US girls… I know, I know…)

What did you get from the Germany Collection?


OPI – Deutsch You Want Me

My wonderful polish Twin, beautiful Adina is responsible for this next polish. Knowing my love of all things orange she sent me this lovely OPI from the new Germany collection. In fact, the whole 12 piece Germany collection is pretty awesome, all of them. My little care package from Adina had more than one in it, so stay tuned for more OPI beauties!

Deutsch You Want me is a wonderful, intense, lit up orange. The colour is amazing, simply amazing. It likes orange jewels dripping off the ends of your fingers.

Formula wise this was nothing short of amazing. Easy to work with, well drying, excellently leveling. I did three very thin coats and the colour built up amazingly well. I am so in love with this, I wore it twice in a row. Based with Essie all-in-one base coat (which I now adore after a bit of a wobble) I have discovered a decent thickness is the best way to work with it. So get dolloping! I had to top coat with Seche (stil out of HK girl).

I am very smitten with this Germany range, now what others should I get?? OPI is available through Lena White, the approved UK reseller and other online sellers.
