OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest

Happy Labor Day weekend to all of my fellow Americans, and happy weekend to everyone else!! For my family, Labor Day weekend means one thing: OKTOBERFEST!! Our county fair does Oktoberfest every year on Labor Day Weekend and we make sure to go every year. Sure we love the beer and the festivities, but the real reason why we go is the wiener dog races!! As most of you probably know, the hubby and I are the proud owners of two adorable wiener dogs so we of course have to participate in the races! The forecast is calling for rain and storms all day today but the races are inside so hopefully they will still go forward as planned.

For Oktoberfest weekend, of COURSE I had to do OPI's Every Month is Oktoberfest!! Every Month is Oktoberfest is from OPI's fall 2012 Germany collection, and in mu opinion, is one of the standouts of the entire line. It is a super dark, vampy purple shimmer. In some lights it looks blue toned, but in other lights it looks red toned. It is pure amazeballs. Vampy colors are perfect for fall, and this is probably one of the best vampy shades I've seen in quite some time. The formula was perfect as most OPIs are these days.

I had a problem capturing the purple tones of this polish indoors so I took these pics in full sunlight. Here's 2 coats of Every Month is Oktoberfest. Enjoy!!





And here are the videos of our weens racing in 2008, the first year we did the races. Please excuse my mom's hysterical laughter throughout UZI's video =)







Hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

  4. Funny videos! I had an Italian greyhound who loved to race, other dogs just didn't get it, they would stand and watch him run. I cracked and bought several colors from the Germany collection. I can't wear them to work so I'm waiting for a day off. I think this is one of OPI's best collections.

    1. LOL well the wiener dogs don't really understand the racing either, they usually just trot along. I agree, I am loving the Germany collection!
