Hey everyone! I got home super late from work last night (ARRGGHHH TRAFFIC) and I didn't have time or energy to do anything fun with my nails, so I'm bringing you some pictures of what I wore yesterday... OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest!
I have been wanting this polish for a long time now and every time I saw swatches of it it made me want it even more. I went to Ulta in search of it a few weeks ago but they were having the sale on OPI polishes where you got a free top or base coat when you bought 2, so the entire Germany collection was wiped out. I was so bummed! But I finally snagged it this past Sunday when I went polish shopping with my sisters and I'm so glad I did.
The first two pictures are outdoors in natural light and you can see that it brings out a lot of the red shimmer in the polish. I was so surprised by how red this polish looked in the bottle because it looked so purple in all the photos I'd seen. My sister and I were like uhh... is this really... the right polish? I DON'T UNDERSTAND. But I think the red shimmer is much more apparent in the bottle which is what gives it that red look.
The previous picture and next picture are with flash, which brings out the amazing purple/blue shimmer and the deep purple base color more. I LOVE the way it looks in these pictures. It was cloudy all day yesterday but if we had had some sunshine I imagine this is what it would have looked like in the sun.
Do you guys own this polish? Were you as surprised as I was when you saw it in the bottle for the first time? It didn't look at all like I was expecting but I'm so glad I still bought it because it's SO PRETTY.
