A Few Shades from OPI Germany Collection

I've been gently buying a few of these here and there when I can get them with a good deal. I've bought 6 colors from the collection so far and haven't paid much more than $3.50 a piece for them. Overall, I really liked the collection. The ones I will show you today are Don't Talk Bach To MeDeutsch You Want Me Baby, and Nein! Nein! OK Fine! The other three I bought were  My Very First Knockwurst, Schnapps Out of It!, and Danke-shiny Red. I'm hoping I'll pick up Every Month Is Oktoberfest and German-icure eventually! Maybe Berlin There, Done That... Then I'm done. (That's what we all say and then we buy them all).

My husband is German so I find some of the names hilarious. The first one I will show you is Don't Talk Bach To Me. Pretty much spotted in the collection as the ugly color. Yes it's ugly in the bottle but on the nail not to bad. It's a sort of yellowish-green with a silver micro-shimmer. I used two coats.

The color kind of reminds me of the fruit die Quitte which I think is Quince in English. It has the same sort of color to it. We use the jam to make our Christmas Bratapfeln (baked apples).

Quince Fruit

The next color I'll show you is called Deutsch You Want Me Baby. It's a rusty fall orange that is packed full of metallic shimmer. It looked like it was glowing when I had it on. This was definitely a surprise favorite for me! I used two coats.

The last one is Nein! Nein! OK Fine! Which is a dark slate gray, which leans a little green. I used two coats. My photos on this were less than spectacular but I still wanted to share.

Happy American Thanksgiving!

OPI - My Pointe Exactly and Pirouette My Whistle

Hello again. I'm here to show you two new to me polishes. I picked them up at Regis Salon during a buy 1 get 2 free sale! Isn't that a lovely deal!? These are from the OPI New York City Ballet soft shades collection from Spring 2012.

The base color I used for this look is called My Pointe Exactly. It's a very sheer light grey. You will have a visible nail line. I used 4 coats.

The Glitter is called Pirouette My Whistle. It's has small silver glitter and then a white grey hex glitter. Really pretty. I used one coat of the glitter. Would of like to of used more, but I was already at 5 coats of polish an decided anymore was too risky or sheet marks.

Overall a really nice neutral look that's still a little cute and crazy. I'm enjoying wearing this as my manicure.
