Swatch Spam-OPI Ink & Every Month is Oktoberfest

Hi there everyone, happy Hump Day.  Not much is going on here.  I spent yesterday afternoon laying on the couch at home....of all the times to be tagged for #stopdropandselfie ;)  I can't torture anyone with my oversized sweater, no makeup, gingerale sipping sick face haha!  It turns out half the office is sick.  Wooo, spread the germs...I mean love. 

Today I have some quick swatches I've been saving up, the classic OPI swatch spam.  Today I have two colors that I think really work for Fall time.  It's 45 degrees this morning, I think it qualifies as Fall, at least for today ;) 

First up is OPI Ink from the core collection from OPI, although there is a chance it could be discontinued.  I say that because I scored this blue beauty for half off on clearance at my local Ulta recently, about two weeks ago.  

OPI Ink is a mix between a blue and purple shimmery polish with pink shimmer running throughout.  I had no problems with application and the formula of this polish.  I used two easy coats with topcoat for my swatches.  I just love how this polish looks both blue and purple at the same time and the shimmer is fantastic.

The second polish I have to share is OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest.  I can't exactly remember when I got this polish but I know I've had it for quite some time.  I had wanted it because I knew it was beautiful but just never got around to wearing it because the season wasn't right.  This polish comes from the 2012 Germany Collection.

This polish is a deep blackened purple burgundy shimmer and my goodness is she gorgeous.  It's deep, vampy, but purple at its base and I love everything about it.  The formula was great on this one and I used two coats with topcoat below.

There you have it, I love both plain and simple.  Do you have either of these classic OPI colors?  What do you think of them?  When I pictured the Nordic collection, this is what I had in my mind!!!  Have a great Wednesday everyone!


  1. Both of these shades are nice and perfect for fall!

  2. Octoberfest is one of my fall favorites. It looks great matte or as a base for a matte design, too. I'd been eyeing Ink but hadn't gotten around to getting it. I think that's about to change! ;-)
