Germanicure by OPI

purchased by me

I always say that I'm not celebrating my birthday, I'm celebrating Bastille Day.  Last year, I wore OPI's Bastille My Heart, which was a gift from a wonderful friend.  This year, I'm acknowledging the very tiny part of my heritage which is German and wearing Germanicure by OPI, which was part of the 2012 Germany collection.  On a side note, most of my forebears were English, Cornish and Scottish, with only my great-grandfather being German.  But since the Germans had the boys, I've got a very German last name. :-)

 Germanicure by OPI is a deep, glowing chestnut shimmer.  The formula was smooth and thin without being runny, patchy on the first coat and perfect on the second.  I added some water decals (my first time using them) and was surprised at how quickly I got the knack of using them!
