Spanish Fly!

Every season, the nail masters over at OPI introduce a line of nail lacquers inspired by exotic locations. This fall, OPI's taking us on a voyage to Spain with their Espana collection. Here are the colors (and funky new names!), as well as OPI's descriptions:
  • Can You Tapas This?: a yummy shade of raisin
  • Ate Berries in the Canaries: cool fuchsia
  • No Spain No Gain: luscious berry
  • Bullish on OPI: a red-hot shade
  • Suzi Skis in the Pyreness: deep grey blue
  • Pink Flamenco: sizzling hot pink
  • Pamplona Purple: a precious plum
  • Conquist Adorable Color: take no prisoners, vibrant red
  • Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow: dark emerald
  • Manicurist of Seville: rich sangria
  • Give Me Moor!: stunning wine purple
  • Barefoot in Barcelona: a luscious nude with Spanish "sole"
Wow! Let me first say that I am so glad to be thinking about dark, richer nail colors. That means summer is slipping away and that the best time of year--the fall--is almost here.

Unlike OPI's South Beach collection, there are a lot of shades in Espana that I can't wait to try out. I love the idea of a grey-blue (Suzi Skis in the Pyreness), green nails are very trendy for Autums (Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow), and there's something about a dark purple that I love (Give Me Moor!).

The Espana collection is currently available at $8.50 a bottle. What's your fave?
