It’s another stop on the OPI world tour!
Earlier this year, I took y’all through the streets of Holland, where shades like “Thanks a Windmillion” and “A Roll in The Hague” instantly developed a cult-like following. This time, OPI embraces runway trends with the Germany Collection for Fall/Winter 2012. Drawing inspiration from Berlin, an exciting new fashion hub that blends classic looks with the avant-garde, the collection’s twelve shades offer a mixture of vibrant color, urban-chic neutrals, and reds in variations from light to dark. The collection won’t be available until August 8th, so consider this your sneak peek!
According to Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director, “The overall feel of the Germany Collection is elegance with an edge.” Not hard to dispute, with rich colours, standout shades and creamy neutrals in honey, taupe and nude rose. But the standout shade for me has to be “Don’t Talk Bach to Me” – a sassy lime-yellow that has the perfect Euro-vibe.
Here’s the lowdown on the shades:
Don’t Pretzel My Buttons (pictured)
A haute honey-beige that can always make you smile.

I dont have an exact favorite family of colours because I often vary between a lot of them depending on my mood :)
I love nudes because they make me look a bit more tan since I am more on the pale side! and I love brights not just in the summer but all year round, they just make me happy :)
I like bright colours. They look good on me.
I love the cool toned purples and blues. They just make me happy

I love ALL colours of polish…I really do! If I had to pick though it would be simple nudes because they tend to stay looking fab longer. However, I’m not afraid of colour in the least! Colour is fun and just means doing a manicure more often…win, win!
I love them all!!! There so pretty !
Purples because they are classy and always look good with my skin tone ;-)
anything cool toned, I love blues
purples and glitter
I like pinks for myself. Simple and girly, and not too harsh for my pale skin tone!

I love purples! I think they look prettiest on my nails;)
Love the nudes. sometimes i like the subtle looks on the nails rather than the bright and bold!
I like nudes. Looks neat!
I love purples as it is my favourite colour. I tend to gravitate towards those shades most.
I like brights best.
I like brights on my toes, but neutrals on my fingers.
I have a hard time picking a favorite family. I love mixing and matching. I guess I tend to favor shimmery and sparkly families.
These colours in the Germany Collection look amazing!
I’m loving the purple hues as they are the perfect shade to wear this Winter!
I love pinks or other very girly colours!!!

Like darker colours, don’t think the light shades look good on me
I think red nails are hot.
I love all the funky unique colors, I’m always changing the color on my nails – my toenails are painted all summer & I’m constantly on the lookout for another great color. Currently, my favs are teals and blues, goes with most of my summer clothes!
I like the spring colours, soft pastels, beachy hues.
I like blues and purples.
Pinks just because I like the colour
I love them all, but lately have been wearing solid, bold colors like red, black, brown.

I love metallics. They add glamour to casual outfits and rock glam to feminine ones.
Nudes — they look clean and sophisticated

pink looks real elegant
I love blues because I love the ocean!
PURPLES!!!!! Why? Are there really any other colours???
I love nudes because they go with everything
I love the German-icure by OPI “burgundy” and Schnapps Out of “blues & mauves” tones. Just like a good wine – color enhances everything. Same APPLIES to nail polishes the deeper the color – the more vivacious you feel and look !
i go for hot pink or red for my toes

It all depends on where I paint my nails. I like darker colours such as purples and reds on my toes, especially in the summertime when I wear sandals. I love looking down at my pretty nail colours. I like lighter colours on my fingers such as pinks and nudes because I have to paint them more often. Thank you for this very nice giveaway!
