OPI Germany...

From intense saturated colors to dusty muted neutrals, the much anticipated OPI Germany collection has something for everyone!  If you are looking for an opaque neutral, like I was, there are three that are sure to compliment a wide array of skin tones.  Need an intense red or maybe a soft shimmering lime?  OPI Germany has got you covered!  "Read More" to enjoy the rest of the review!



Application for this collection is perfect with no brush strokes, dragging, or globing.  Two coats were used for each lacquer.  Even though they are extremely pigmented, I had no staining with Danke-Shiny Red or Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue.  The silver shimmer in Don't Talk Back To Me and Schnapps Out Of It! is reminiscent of the shimmers from the OPI Holland collection, only more subtle.  After digging through my collection I found no exact dupes.  What is your must have shade from this collection?
