OPI My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours

Well isn't it? No, it's probably not. I don't think I even have paprika in the spice cabinet :(. Your paprika wins.

OPI My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours is from this past spring's Euro Centrale collection. I adored this collection by OPI, and bought almost all the colors. This one really stood out to me because of how vibrant and rich it is. I love a great orange in summer. A good orange is hard to come by in nail polish world at least in my opinion, but this one impressed me.

My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours
My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours is a bright orange-red with a subtle silver micro shimmer.

Color: The orange tones in this definitely stand out stronger than the red. This is a bright in your face color wihtout being neon. The shimmer is a subtle and nice touch, but not very noticeable either.

Formula: Bleh. I had trouble with all the formulas in this collection. It is thinner and streaker. It did even out after 3 coats, but come on OPI, I think you can do better.

Price: I think I paid around $8.50 for this at Ulta. These are now $9 at Ulta I believe?

Overall: Great pop of color with this one. It's vibrant and happy. The formula doesn't meet my expectations, but it doesn't ruin the whole thing for me either.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Wednesday!

  12. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who had application issues with this one! I looked at a few other swatches/reviews online and it made me think I had a bad bottle. Thank you for your honesty! Gorgeous color, sadly I think I'll reserve it for nail art... too much of a pain in the rear to apply.

  13. It is so weird how the formulas can differ from bottle to bottle, I had no issues with this one at all!
