OPI German-icure

I admit it. I talked a lot of trash about the OPI Germany collection. I though it was totally uninspired, predictable, and uneventful. On one hand, I felt somewhat right. I passed over most of the collection without a second glance, but there were 2 that stood out one other (which I'll show you at a later date), and German-icure which I have for you today.. After I saw these two, I felt a little pang in my heart for being so cruel towards the Germany collection. Those 2 polishes made up for all the others.


German-icure



German-icure is a deep rich maroon shimmer.

This polish is magical. The shimmer in it is really something else. The shimmer is very glowy. I love how vibrant the color is in the center of the nail and how it starts to fade darker into the edges of the nail. There is absolutely nothing ordinary about this polish at all. It is truly luxurious. I have a lot of red polishes, but none that glow or shimmer quite like this at all. Gorgeous. You need this one.

Happy Monday!

  3. Yeap - Germanicure is good IF you get it into decent light - it can just look deep and murky otherwise and I have a ton that look like that. I do like Oktoberfest - it does not go into the depths of deep dark color as much as Germanicure does out side of perfect lighting. I am still kind of feeling like your first feelings were - been here before...but then I have soooo many polishes and collected for so long - it's hard to wow me. And despite all the polishes I have and see, I tend to reach for my top 10 favs over and over again.

  4. That's something I DON'T like about it at all.. i have so many polishes that only look like something other than deep red lean black unless you get them in super direct light.

  8. Gorgeous swatches of this one! I only got Oktoberfest, which is gorgeous and reminds me of a darker Max Factor Fantasy Fire (similar shimmer). This was the only other one I considered getting, but at the time could only afford one.
