When OPI came out with the German collection Fall 2012, I got really excited because I took German for 3+ years. Anywho, these 2 were one of my recent purchases, and when I received them, I was a little stunned. No, not because they are gorgeous (which they are!) but they looked identical in the bottle. I put these in a post together so that everybody interested in these shades grabs both because they are definitely nothing alike! Well, similar, perhaps, but definitely NOT dupes!!
Take a look at them next to each other! (Oktoberfest is on the left and German-icure is on the right. Crazy, right?)
German-icure by OPI is the MOST BEAUTIFUL vampy maroon-brown EVER. I was SO impressed. If you do not have this one, you should. Really. I’m enabling FOR SURE. It’s opaque in 1 coat, but I did 2 coats for maximum prettiness. It reminds me of cinnamon floating in coffee!
Every Month is Oktoberfest takes me back to when I went to Oktoberfest for German Club back in high school (yes, I was a nerd and probably still am!) and had warm and delicious potato soup. Yummy. Oktoberfest is a dark vampy purple with red shimmer. It was really hard to get a good photo of the beautiful shimmer but it’s so stunning! Here’s 2 coats.
My mind is still boggled by the fact that they look identical in the bottles. Two DIFFERENT beauties to add to your wishlists! 😉
