NOTD: OPI My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours

bottle copy When I first laid eyes on OPI’s My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours, I thought “great, another tomato red”.  Well, my friends, this shade is one of those special ones that look way better on than in the bottle.

I chose to try this one last because it was the least impressive to me from all the ones I received from the Euro Centrale collection for spring/summer 2013.  In the bottle, it reminded me greatly of Essie’s Snap Happy, however, when painted on, it leans more towards orange than red.


This colour was a bit hard to photograph, because it shows up more red in the photos, but trust me, this shade is unlike anything I have.  I usually find with orange-red colours, they tend to gravitate more towards the red side, however, with this one, it’s such a stunning colour that tends to be a bit more orange.

I used OPI Nail Envy as my base coat with Poshe on top.  I only needed two coats to make my mani opaque.  As with all these OPI shades, the colour lasted quite a while before it started to chip.


With OPI, I have noticed that the colour looks way better on than it does in the bottle.  I wouldn’t have picked this colour up if I was just looking at it in the store, however, it’s such a stunner; perfect for the spring.
