Description: OPI Euro Centrale for the 2013 Spring/Summer Collection takes us into the heart of central Europe, with all its diversity and lushly vibrant color perfectly captured into nail lacquer. My Paprika is Hotter than Yours, is a bright hot orange with slight silver shimmer. Rich shade, great creamy smooth formula. Two coats will do.
Packaging: This creamy vibrant nail paint comes in as usual sturdy glass bottle packaging with classic black cap. OPI embossed cap totally adds wow factor. It is travel friendly and sturdy enough unless it reaches in Aadya’s hands, she has already broken my previous OPI “On Collins Avenue” bottle.
My take on OPI Nail Lacquer My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours:
You all may guess how I always get this reddish orange nail paint in my stash .. 😛 I have good consumer service at home and my stash is cleaned up periodically hence no tension of expiry dates. By the way, orange is my most favorite fruit apart from third most favorite color after red/pinks. Needless to say I picked it up only to replace my belated nail paint. It does resemble to my previous OPI nail collections but in person, all three “I eat mainely lobster”, “on Collins avenue” and this “my paprika is hotter than yours” are slight different yet twin sisters.. 😛 This particular “my paprika is hotter than yours” has subtle silver shimmers which hardly show up on nails except in sunlight, which is good as I don’t like too much glittery nail paints. It looks more like “jogiya” color, you know saint’s orange color with slight hint of red. I am welcoming summers with this bright orange shade on my nails now days and love it. It instantly brightens skin tone and soothes my eye pupil. Moreover, it goes very well with my black outfits and other yellow, multicolored outfits which saves me from the pressure of changing nail paint frequently for every outfit.
Talking about texture, it is really thick and creamy unlike other similar shades, it gives me perfect opaque coverage in just 1 swipe and I need second swipe for shiny finish. It is impressive to see it gives streak free finishing every time. I am sure this bottle will last longer as compared to other shades (not to forget, I need to keep it in secure bank locker away from my kid). The glossy, shiny finish lasts for 1-2 weeks on my nails however it chipps off on 4th-5th day of first week. I am impressed that its shine, glow does not fade and this shade remains intact on my toe nails for 2-3 weeks though. Over all, I love this nail paint and I guess using OPI or any other brand top coat would help me with chipping. I would recommend this bright summery shade to every gal irrespective of skin tone. This is such hot & happening shade for summers isn’t?
Pros of OPI Nail Lacquer My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours:
• A subtle shimmery yet bright orange nail paint
• It does what it claims. Two coats are more than enough to give full coverage, glossy finish on nails
• The glossy shine remains intact for 1-2 week unless the nail paint chips off completely
• It gives fully opaque streak free coverage in just first swipe
• I only need second swipe to build glossy finish
• A DBP, Toluene & Formaldehyde free nail lacquer
• In spite of silver sparkles it is soft, creamy and most vibrant nail lacquer in my stash
• It remains intact for 2-3 weeks on my toe nails
• It will compliment any outfit and any skin tone
• They are often available at affordable discounted price
Cons of OPI Nail Lacquer My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours:
• I don’t why these nail paints chip off very 4th-5th day of wearing it. It takes slight a moment to dry completely hence I often struggle hard for clear glossy finishing
Apart from these self made cons, I do not think I need to skip it or I should demoralize you from trying such vibrant summery shade. It is a must have shade however, if you already own any of its twin sister “on Collins avenue”, “I eat mainely lobster” etc then you might give it a skip unless you have tricky consumer service at home to screw your stash like mine.. lol However I tried its sister shades and still I love and I can recognize which particular shade is on my nails currently.
So what are your picks for summer gals?
