OPI: Germany Collection Fall 2012

By Thepolishwell
Good morning everyone!
Sorry for the slightly late post today. I had been a swatching machine yesterday during the day (swatched more than 10 polishes in a sitting before attempting some nail art) and ended up rushing to complete an assignment in the evening. Hmm... yea I think I may have a problem with my priorities. :et  On the bright side, this probably means that you will be in for some swatch candies this week! ;)
Let's start off with some of my picks from the OPI Germany Collection for Fall 2012!
It has been a while since I've gotten myself some OPI but this collection really reminded me why I love OPI so much.
OPI: Germany Collection Fall 2012
My Very First Knockwurst. 2 coats.
A beautiful light tea rose pink. I wouldn't ordinarily go for this color but I love that it is slightly dusty-looking. It is a shade darker and slightly more beige in real life. Demure looking without sacrificing feminine chic - perfect shade for work and play. <3
OPI: Germany Collection Fall 2012
Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! 2 coats.
A dark gray with a very strong green hue. Depending on the lighting, it looks more gray or green. A very chic and sophisticated color. Makes me feel a step closer to being on Forbes list of most influential women. I like. 8)

Every Month is Oktoberfest. 2 coats.
*swoon* Now this is exactly why I love OPI. A stunning inky purple filled with red/gold shimmer. It is just drop-dead smolderingly sexy. :L
I apologize for the blurry pics above, I took a ton of pictures and they all turn out blurry - either my camera was spasming at that awesomeness or I was actually trembling with excitement. I promise I will re-swatch it again.  >.<
The first picture shows how it looks indoors - dark with glowy shimmery center and flashes of purple at the sides. Yup, you can see the purple base even without strong lighting!
The second picture shows more of the gorgeous purple base under indirect light.
When I first saw the bottle, it reminded me of another OPI favorite of mine - Royal Rajah Ruby. So I decided to pull it out to do a brief comparison.

(L-R): OPI Royal Rajah Ruby and Every Month is Oktoberfest

Very similar in the bottles but if you look carefully, you can spy swirls of inky purple in Oktoberfest, especially near the top of the bottle.

Ahh.. finally a clearer picture of Oktoberfest! Now, do you see why I love it!? :L :L
Ok, back to the comparison...
RRR and Oktoberfest are clearly different on the nails. Both are full of vamp and glowy goodness but if I really have to choose between these two (heaven forbid), I will go for Oktoberfest. I really love how the shimmer looks against the inky purple. <3
The formula and application for these were really good. Smooth, even coverage with just 2 coats. Just the way I like it.
So what do you think of the Germany collection? Which ones did you get?
p.s. I didn't get German-icure because it looked really similar to Royal Rajah Ruby but apparently they are not dupes either. You can check out comparison swatches here.
