OPI’s Germany Collection

The latest OPI country collection launch is now available! (I absolutely love when the brand features a country that I’ve been to.) Funky, German-inspired colors with OPI’s signature hilarious names, define this collection. See all the new colors and hear what I have to say about them right here!

from top left to right: Danke-Shiny Red, Deutsch You Want Me Baby?, Every Month is Oktoberfest, German-icure by OPI, Suzi & the 7 Düsseldorfs, Unfor-greta-bly Blue, Berlin There Done That, Don’t Pretzel My Buttons, My Very First Knockwurst, Schnapps Out of It!,  Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine!, Don’t Talk Bach to Me

Overall, the colors in OPI’s latest launch are really tricky to wear. Most of the colors don’t seem like they’d be universally flattering for all skin tones and nail lengths. For example, I think that long talons against pale skin would look atrocious wearing the lime-yellow ‘Don’t Talk Bach To Me.” For this reason, I’d suggest for you to make great use out of opi.com‘s “Try On This Color” interactive app for this collection. You can adjust the on-screen hand to look most like yours to see how the shade wears.

‘Don’t Pretzel My Buttons’ is my favorite shade in the launch, but I would say the same thing about checking the shade. Nudes are super deceiving: if they don’t match your skin color, they’re not truly nude, now are they? This one happens to look good on my ghostly pale hands, but the others may look phenomenal on you.

Let us know which shades you’re loving, and keep an eye out for out spotlights of future OPI launches.
