O.P.I Germany Collection Fall 2012- Part One

Hello lovely readers!! 

  Today I have the first part of O.P.I's Germany Collection for Fall 2012. This collection is made up of 12 fantastic Fall inspired shades. Six cremes, Six vampy shimmers. Today I will be showing you the creme portion of the collection. There is a nice range of classic and unusual with these shades and that is always a plus in any collection. 
To see close- up shots just continue reading ♥.
O.P.I Don't Pretzel my Buttons
 Don't Pretzel my Buttons is a fantastic, Sandy toned beige creme. I was worried that it would be far too Yellow for my skin tone but, guess what?! It is just perfect, it just enough Brown in it to make it flattering! I love Fall nudes done well and this one is right on the money. Formula-wise this shade gave me no issues and did great in Two coats.

O.P.I My Very First Knockwurst
   My Very First Knockwurst is a light Pink toned beige creme with a slight hint of smokiness. Another great Fall nude. The formula on this shade is great and easy to work with. I only needed Two coats for full even coverage.

O.P.I Berlin Done That
Berlin Done That is your classic Fall Putty Greige. Remember You Don't Know Jaques? Make it a bit lighter and Grayer and you have Berlin Done That. I LOVE shades like this and never get sick of them. They always flatter and they are always chic. The best part? They flow seamlessly from season to season. I used two coats for this swatch.

O.P.I Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!
Nein!Nein!Nein! Ok Fine is a deep, deep Grey creme with a slight deep Green undertone. This is like if Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow and Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees got together and had a creamy baby you'd get this shade. This is Fall perfection right here.

O.P.I Don't Talk Bach to Me
 Don't Talk Back to Me is my new favorite ugly-pretty go to color. I freaking LOVE this shade. Unusual, bold and just a bit out there. DTBTM is an amazing Chartreuse creme laced with delicate Silver shimmer. Just enough to take the base color out of murky territory. This color has a great Two coat formula.

O.P.I Schnapps Out of It
 Schnapps Out of It is another unusual shade. In my notes I have several descriptions for this color... The one I landed on was "dirty Coral" laced with some ultra fine Silvery shimmer. This color has had a mixed reaction from bloggers and I personally still don't know how I feel about it. On the one hand the color is pretty flattering on my skin tone, on the other... It's just a weird color... Formula wise this color was the best in this half. I could have almost done with just one coat but I did Two.

  Overall, I am pretty pleased with this half of the collection. I like that there are some nice classic, full coverage nudes, a sultry deep shade and some more unusual colors for those of us who are just a little out there. O.P.I never disappoints in the formula department and even less with the naming. How punny are the names?! Just LOVE it. I can't wait to show you guys the vampy shimmer half of this collection because there are some truly memorable colors in that line-up. Colors, I feel, we will look back on years from now and still "oooh and ahhhh" at how amazing they are/were.

What are your thoughts on this half?

  6. Berlin Done That reminds me very much of Sephora by OPI's Metro Chic, which I'm wearing right now! It's one of my favorite colors ever, actually, and you're right: always flattering and chic. I feel very cool wearing it. :)

  10. from the moment I saw the first publicity shots of this Collex, I've hated it. But since I bought it, I agree, there really are some wow factors in there, shades we will still be talking about in a few years AND best of all, some polishes that hark back to the days when OPI ruled them all xx
