a pretty dark red/burgundy with brown undertones and microshimmer that you can see in brighter light. this is a nice color for fall and winter.
Meh. It's just okay. It's a dark burgundy shimmer that looks brown on me. I will use what I have but would not buy it again. It's a "safe" color for dark-skinned girls.
I agree with pretty much all that has been said about this polish so far, and I think the description that it has a brown undertone, or kind of has the color of dried blood (as unattractive as that may sound) is accurate. With that said, this is truly a beautiful color and ends up appearing on the nail with more dimension and personality than what you see in the bottle. Definitely a keeper!
This has been a bit of an unexpected success for me! Often I am sceptical of reds, especially dark ones, which often just make my slightly yellow hands looks dirty and bad. This would be especially disappointing when a colour is at the price point OPI products are. Not with this, though. Unlike with many colours this dark, when not in bright light, this colour doesn't appear black. It still has a clear warmth that shows it's colour and not black. Then in light, it really "pops." The best way to describe it is rich, classy, vampy and a metallic dried blood kind of colour. I'm really glad I got this now. I was also reluctant to because I bought it at the same time as another German line colour (Every Month Is Oktoberfest) and in their bottles, they look like almost the exact same colour. I think they aren't, though, because these metallic colours often do look different on the nail to in the bottle. I have yet to try the other, but if it is really too similar, I'll update on here so that others don't buy both too.
One of my favorites from the 2012 fall collection. 2 coats are needed to obtain opacity. This is a very dark red/brown, and a great vampy color for fall/winter. Would also work great as a toe color. When I had it on, I couldn't stop looking at my fingers and turning them in the sunlight to catch all the different aspects of this polish. I highly recommend it!
German-icure By OPI is from OPI Germany Collection 2012. This is a dark burgundy shimmer color with fine red/purple glitter. It has a black blue underone. I think there's also a silver sheen add on top to make it very pretty.
The application is very easy. It nees two coats to make it opaque and dries quite quickly. I think this color is very pretty in fall/winter and is definitely wearable for work or an evening party. Looks great on both nails and toes. Look really elegant and European. Will buy this one again.
