OPI Germany Collection Swatches

Before you get all excited…I should let you know that I only have some of the polishes from this collection. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am a poor person. I could not afford every polish from the Germany (but that doesn’t mean I didn’t lust after all of them!).
I found a nicely priced mini set on Ebay, and I purchased a full sized bottle of Every Month is Oktoberfest.

L-R: Suzi & the 7 Dusseldorfs, Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue, Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!, Don’t Pretzel My Buttons.

Suzi & the 7 Dusseldorfs– a shimmery plum-magenta. It reminds me of L’Oreal The Mystic’s Future (which I will swatch soon).

Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue– a jewel-toned royal blue. It’s lighter than Yoga-ta Get This Blue and doesn’t carry the violet tones of Blue My Mind.

Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!– a blackened green with distinct gray tones. I can’t think of anything similar. It is more gray than Here Today Aragon Tomorrow, and more green than China Glaze Concrete Catwalk.

Don’t Pretzel My Buttons– this is the closest I have ever gotten to my “mannequin hands” shade (see here for an explanation). It’s a light beigey-nude creme that doesn’t look too pink to me. Oh, I just want to let you know that my summer tan is still fading, so it may be my mannequin shade for now, but I will have to get back to my normal NC40 skintone to see if it still makes my hands look like “plastic doll hands”.  Let that be a lesson to you all- check the expiration date on your sunblock to see if it’s still effective!

And finally…my favorite shade of the bunch:

Every Month is Oktoberfest

Every Month is Oktoberfest- this is a shimmery plum-burgundy. In person, it looks like a standard vampy from afar, but once you examine it, you’ll see how glorious and pretty this is. To me, it’s a more red-toned and intense version of Zoya Jem.

Which ones do you like? Are there any more I should take a look at?

  1. Every Month is Oktoberfest is probably my personal favorite too! I have so many similar shades including Jem, and I can’t get enough of them!

  2. Yaaaay! Pictures! My favroite on you is Every Month is Oktoberfest. I want that one so badly, also! I too am a poor person (haha) and don’t any of these yet, but I think you may have convinced me to pick up a few!
