NEW OPI Germany Collection - These Fall/Winter 2012 Colours R-O-C-K

I don't know how you can shop for sweaters or coats in this heat, but come the middle of August, I so start to get incredibly antsy about change. I often change my hair to red or black and I crave wearing anything but pastels. 

So the NEW OPI Germany Collection for Fall/Winter 2012 satiates my craving for what's new and to come.

Taking its inspiration from Berlin, a fascinating place that was captured beautifully by my friend K. Jill Rigby for The Globe & Mail, the collection's 12 shades feels immensely cool and ahead of the curve.

Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director, says, "The overall feel of the Germany Collection is elegance with an edge. The varied palette of colors adds another accent to the list of special touches – think beadwork, paneling, fur and embroidery – that walked the runways during New York Fashion Week."

The Germany Collection by OPI includes the following 12 shades:
- Don’t Pretzel My Buttons - This is one of those shades that you wear over and over because the warm coffee-with-lots-of-cream-colour not only flatters, it goes with everything

- My Very First Knockwurst - Gosh, it's so pretty. This dusty rose is not bridesmaid-from-the-90s at all, but cool and confident. Another one you'll don over and again.
- Berlin There Done That - The greigy-ness of this deep, creamy taupe is intensely sexy and rich and it will make your long-in-the-tooth wardrobe look new again.

- Don’t Talk Bach to Me - A margarita lime that is not for the faint of heart, however can be worn on just the tips or half-moons as a way to style your mani into the future.
- Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! - OPI got it right when they deemed this shade black olive, and it's the first black that is flattering and not too goth on my pale, pinky skin.

- Unfor-greta-bly Blue - A shimmery dip into this dark blue pool is just what your outfit needs - that edgy, finishing touch.

- Every Month is Oktoberfest  - I love how this one's not too red or orange but kind of a deep red with brick tones. Because sometimes you don't want a full-on red.

- Suzi & the 7 D├╝sseldorfs - This violet is a great way to rock the purple trend without it looking too youthful. In fact, it's pretty awesome.

- Deutsch You Want Me Baby? - Orangey red, yet warm and shimmery, this shade will ignite your wardrobe.

- Danke-Shiny Red - Candy apple red is so delicious, there's no need to save this one just for parties and celebrations.

- German-icure by OPI - Burgundy is super-hot for the upcoming seasons and this dark concoction is both alluring and professional, so go ahead and wear it to the office and for late night drinks.

- Schnapps Out of It! - I am so intrigued by this warm clay colour and love how it's creaminess mixes with a slight pearly finish. A staple for sure.

And of course, as always, you won't find any DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde here, just gorgeous fashion-forward colours, all applied with OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush your applications are quick, easy and no mess.

The NEW OPI Germany Collection is available now at Professional Salons and Spas.
