Gorgeous color and above average formula. I skipped a base coat so I am not sure if this will stain but most colors don't stain on me except for medium blues and certain reds.
I found the formula very easy to work with. I only needed two coats for the color to look perfect. Dried at a decent speed and with no bubbles which happens to me with certain formulas from Essie. I didn't care for the OPI brush since I prefer Zoya's brush. I also find OPI to have a strong scent to their paint but I am comparing the smell to Zoya which has very little of a smell.
I have been pretty rough with my nails the last few days and only had one very tiny chip but that was my fault not the polish.
This color is so gorgeous and I am enjoying it very much! I think I will wear it again once it is time to repaint. I can't believe this has been sitting in my collection and never been tried?! If I ever ran out of this polish I know I would buy it again in a heartbeat!
I also plan to look for similar colors like this from Zoya.
I have both this polish and "German-icure" from the same OPI Germany collection. I mention this because in the bottle, they look EXTREMELY similar. On the nails, they're similar, but have very different character. This is a dark, shimmery, wine-purple colour. The shimmer, which is a lighter wine-purple, is definitely noticeable, but moderate. I do actually consider this polish to be wine red, rather than purple, but it's really just a matter of perspective, I think. I admit, I have a long love affair with wine red nail polishes of all kinds, especially ones that tend toward purple. (Also, just for comparison, German-icure is a medium-deep red with a rusty brown edge and a strong, slightly gold shimmer, and it's a little lighter than Every Month is Oktoberfest.)
This polish applies nicely, is opaque in two coats, and has the OPI Pro-Wide brush. Definitely recommend wearing a base coat (really, you should always use a base coat, anyway), because I suspect the pigmentation in this would stain nails without it. With a decent top coat, it will last several days, generally speaking. Good OPI quality and a lovely, deep, vampy colour with nice depth and shimmer.
Every Month is Oktoberfest is a great colour for those who want to dabble in the dark side of nail polish colours, but don't want to rush into a flat and pure black! In the many years I've been painting my nails, I never owned black nail polish until I turned 16. The last colour I used before getting my lacquered hands on a black polish was this one! From afar, it may seem to be too dark and daring, but admire it from close up and you'll see the true beauty of the colour. I love how it's a vampy shade, yet it has some glimmer in it; that instantly glams it up. It applies very smooth and fluid, the brush coats on the nail polish evenly, and not excessively. The price is kinda heart breaking though, but for it's quality and one-of-a-kind colour, I would definitely repurchase this. It's a must have for the days you want to vamp things up without coming off emo-teenager phase!
A perfect vampy, glowly nail polish for Fall/Winter seasons. It has a dark, inky purple base with burgundy shimmery pigment. It goes on like a dream and I only needed two thin coats. The Pro-wide brush is annoying as I have a strong c-curve but it goes on so beautifully I normally don’t need to ‘clean up’ at all. You need this if you love vampy nail polishes.
A beautiful deep burgundy plum that looks like a dark creme in certain light. In brighter light, you can see the gorgeous shimmery micro glitter in it. <3
This is a fab, vampy autumnal colour. Has a gorgeous deep sheen with hints of purple and gold. Hard-wearing - last me a week with minimal tip-wear.
I rated it as 3 in terms of price. ALL polish is expensive in the UK, including crappy drug store brands (typically £3/$5 a bottle), so at £7 off eBay, this represents good value to me.
Excellent quality and I would definitely buy again.
This polish is a beautiful blue-based purple with pink/red shimmer. It is VERY dark and the true color and shimmer show up best in strong sunlight. Indoors, or if you aren't closely examining it, it is similar to other vampy purples; as I stated, it's DARK. It is a beautiful color and application was flawless with opacity in two coats.
This is the ugliest nail polish that I have from OPI. It is much too blue-based for me. I will not use it again.
Another home run from OPI on this shade! This is perfection in a bottle for those of us that love us some vampies!
Every Month is Oktoberfest is like a marriage of 2 of my favorite winter shades .. Midnight in Moscow and Black Cherry Chutney! This is a blackened plum base, with a dark red micro-shimmer so you can see both plum and a deep red in this. It's definitely a perfect shade when I long for vamp but don't want to go overly "blackened". Pigmentation is perfect, I achieved total coverage in 2 thin coats, this applied very smoothly with no streaking at all! This shade immediately flew into my top 10 vamps of all time and worthy of a back up for sure! continued >>
There's no mistaking this is a purple-based polish with red and gold shimmer. It's dark and vampy and in no way can be mistakened for black. Opaque in two coats, application is smooth and easy. OPI did well with this one; it's definitely a favourite. It's from the 2012 Germany Collection.
