OPI - Euro Centrale Collection - You're Such A Budapest and Can't Find My Czechbook

Moving on to the new OPI Euro Centrale Collection! Today I did DOTS: yeah. I love dots and I should do them more often.
OPI You're Such A Budapest (YSAB) and OPI Can't Find My Czechbook (CFMC) are colors that are bestest ;-) friends in my book. Both are bright but a bit faded and both are soft without being extreme pastels.

I opted to use YSAB as a base colour and use CFMC for the dots. I saw swatches of CFMC alone and that made it look more bright and blue then in my case when used as dots on the lilac. The lilac made it look more of a petrol or greenish blue....which is lovely as well :-)
*note to self* next time I should use CFMC on its own and compare the colour with the dots.

Well, have a look and see for yourself:

The formula of YSAB was a bit watery but very workable and not at all streaky: this was 2 thin layers, perhaps when worn without the dots you need 2 thicker layers or three thin ones. There is some ultra fine purple and silver shimmer in there somewhere but it does not transfer to the nail. Perhaps that it makes the colour a bit more glowing but you don't notice shimmer just a this very slight glow.
