I swore many times that I'm never gonna buy any polish from OPI Germany collection for 2 reasons. First, the colours are anything but attractive to me, neither they represent Germany as a country in my opinion. Second, the names sound endlessly stupid, although OPI traditionally has been doing a nice language play in their country-centered collections. In spite of all that, when I picked a bottle of Don't Pretzel My Buttons in the store, I thought it could be a nice mannequin nude. And when I scored a deal of 1,90€ with shipping for a mini-bottle on the auction-website-we-all-know .. you know.. :) Never say never.
What I got on my nails is a quite interesting effect of "no nails". At some point it was weird to look at my nails and "not seeing" them :) Fortunately, there was no conflict between the shade of the polish and my skin tone, they just mimicrated one into another.. Otherwise Don't Pretzel My Buttons is a light beige creme, not so easy to apply (2 thin coats) but still no major problems encountered.
And, as in case of some other polishes of the OPI German Collection, the colour has not much in common with the things it tends to depict - if at all. The real colour of Brezel is rather sienna, as you see on the pics below. The shade of Don't Pretzel My Buttons is rather the one of the raw dough.
And since I live in Germany I'm literally surrounded by props suitable for making photos with. Meet the real Brezel : )
