I love my blue, green, and vampy polishes as much as the next girl. But I woke up today wanting a classic red manicure. I don’t wear red all that often, but I love when I do… Something about red tips makes me feel put together, confident, and ready to conquer whatever the day may offer.
I knew I had to have Danke-Shiny Red because the name reminds me of this scene from Ferris Beuller- one of my all time favorite movies and characters.
Despite being slightly on the cool side, I think it looks fine against my warm toned skin. The beautiful glowing, shiney, and dare I say every so slightly metallic finish was nearly impossible to capture on camera – and I certainly tried! Indoors, outdoors, flash, no flash, lightbox… no luck. You’ll just have to trust me that this polish is ridiculously beautiful. It’s a darker red that I think would find it’s best fit in Fall/Winter but it’s totally okay to wear during our last weeks of summer!
Application was great. Danke-Shiny Red was opaque in one coat, though I used three. Remember when you wear red polishes to wear a basecoat as some tend to leave behind a bit of themselves once removed.

What polishes have you picked up from OPI’s Germany collection? In addition to Danke-Shiny Red, I also chose German-icure by OPI. Alli has grabbed Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! and Berlin There Done That.
