OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! comes from the Euro Centrale Collection, which will reach stores on February 6, 2013.
Do you like hot and spicy food? I enjoy a little kick, but when food is very spicy, I can no longer taste anything and just focus on the pain! My tolerance for spicy food is pretty poor.
One of my co-workers never ceases to astound us all, though. She loves jalapeño peppers and hot sauce. In fact, in the lunch room, we’re used to seeing her pour hot sauce over her meal like it’s ketchup! (To give you an idea of how spicy it is, just a small drop of it is enough to make my mouth burn.)
And she never seems to feel cold, even when the temperature’s been dropping. We think it’s because of all the sauce she consumes! 😉 It must get the blood circulating…
P.S. How cool is it that today is December 12, 2012? 12…12…12…

OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! Review
Is it just my eyes, or is this an orange with a hint of red and not a fiery red like OPI advertised? Or maybe it looks like a muted red to you?
When I think of a fiery red, I think of Santa’s suit or a stop sign. And, actually, I like how this is orange rather than a red. Yes, yes, yes, we’re getting closer to Christmas and red nail polish is giving us nailphiles puppy-dog eyes, but that only makes orange stand out more – it isn’t trying as hard! 😉
If you wear red with this polish, your nails will start to look a little redder. But, if you wear it with any other colour of clothes, it looks like an energetic orange rather than a standard pumpkin type of orange.
When I wore this manicure, the sky was overcast. And when the sun came out, I was in the office, so I didn’t ever see the shimmer. But, when I look closely at the bottle, it looks like there’s fine silvery shimmer. My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! looks mainly like a creme polish when it’s on the nail, though.
Application & Formula
The formula on this one was easy to control, and with just 2 coats, I was able to achieve full opacity.
Final Verdict: 7.5/10
OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! is a nice alternative to all the red polishes I’ve been seeing in December. It’s bold and bright without being predictable for this season.
(This is actually from a Spring/Summer 2013 collection, so it’s not really supposed to be linked with Christmas. I just think it’s neat to wear orange instead of the traditional red this time of year.)
Do you wear more red nail polish during December? Do you cook with Paprika a lot or another spice? Does this lacquer look more orange or red to you?
