OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook is the beautiful, clean blue nail polish from the Euro Centrale Collection coming out in February 2013.
Have you ever lost your wallet or had it stolen?
When I was around 9 or 10, I lost my wallet in the mall. (My parents thought somebody stole it, but I remember insisting that it had fallen out of my pocket even though I didn’t actually know which story was true. I just didn’t want to believe that someone would steal from a kid. Even as a child, I had my head in the clouds…)
It was such a bummer because it had $50 in it, which was a combined holiday and birthday gift from my grandparents. It was also the most they had ever given me, plus it was in a wallet I loved way more than the cash itself.
Yes, I cried like a baby. Having $50 was like winning the lottery, especially for a kid who never got weekly allowance from her parents!
(Doing household chores was expected without getting any reward in return. And, this is a great life lesson because we shouldn’t always be motivated to do something good based on a reward. Let’s just do good because it IS good!)

OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook Review
Hope that you can overlook my sloppy painting job. (I was really excited to wear this! Haha!) If you can get past that, you’ll notice that this is a fresh aqua that’s pretty versatile. It looks terrific solo, but if you want to do nail art that calls for a sky or a watery scene, this would be perfect.
It has more guts than a pastel blue, but it’s still light and bright enough to stay well away from vampy territory.
Can’t Find My Czechbook has a simple creme finish, which makes this polish classic and easy-to-wear. Also, like any creme, it’s easy to remove. Bonus!
Application & Formula
I was able to control the formula well, since it glided on smoothly. And I only needed 2 coats to achieve full opacity.
Since there are quite a number of blues on the market, I thought I’d do a little comparison with the most popular ones I thought you’d be most curious about.
OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook is a darker blue than OPI What’s with the Cattitude?, and significantly bluer than China Glaze Aquadelic and For Audrey. These are all some of my favourites to wear!
However, if you’re not a crazy nail nut like me, you may be laughing now because to the ‘normal’ consumer, these are all very similar. 😉 Does this make me a nail snob after all? *Sticks up nose in the air*
In case you’re interested, I’ve previously reviewed these polishes if you’d like to see more photos:

- China Glaze For Audrey
Final Verdict: 8/10
Despite it not being as unique as OPI Get Your Number, I still really enjoyed wearing Can’t Find My Czechbook. It is clean, adds a punch of colour to your tips, and gives you a fresh-looking manicure.
If you don’t already have an aqua in your collection, try this! But, if you already have a huge assortment in your stash, you may want to save your money.
Are you excited about Can’t Find My Czechbook, or have you been burned out on aquas? Have you ever lost your wallet? Did your parents give a weekly allowance when you were a kid?
