OPI – Every Month Is Oktoberfest

My husband’s birthday was on Saturday. I took him to the Magic Castle in Hollywood! We had both wanted to go but had never been, and I was lucky enough to get an invite from a magician’s wife. 🙂

We got all dressed up and I wore this on my nails and toes…

OPI – Every Month is Oktoberfest!
It is so gorgeous! Just as sparkly as Germanicure, but more on the wine/burgundy side.

Actually, the shimmer is a really warm and sparkly red, but the base is so blue that it really makes the polish look more plum or burgundy on the nail. When you actually pull the brush out and see the base, its very blue.

These are the only two I got from the new Fall collection and I LOVE them both!

New Bundle Monster! Butter London – Toff with Flormar – 389

I was so excited to get my new Bundle Monster plates from Amazon! I went to a wedding over the weekend and wanted to try out one of the new designs.

The two plates I tested really worked well! The designs were really etched in deep and they were large enough to even cover my thumb with a lot left over!

I reallllly wish their new plates came with a coffee cup design. I thought they said they would with the next set but maybe I’ll have to keep waiting. If you want to see the designs that they did use, check this out:

LA Splash – Glitz & Berry

This is one of my most favorite and most used polishes. Its so perfect for some reason! The glitter is not too chunky or too sparse, the base isn’t too clear or thick… and the price is amazingly perfect too, I must say.

They sell these glitter polishes at Ulta. You can also get these on CherryCulture.com or probably some other online shops!

I took one while I was out too!

I wore it in DC, to the award ceremony at the Air & Space Museum! It was a really formal event and I thought it would go perfectly with my black dress. 🙂

I also wore it for our Love Story video we filmed to play at our wedding reception.

OPI – Tease-y Does It vs Nubar – Raspberry Truffle

I finally put these side-by-side so I could really tell exactly what the difference was between them!

From far away, you can’t really tell a difference at all!

If you look closely though, Raspberry Truffle is definitely more of a berry and Tease-y Does It has more of a cola color to it!

Now I finally know which one I prefer… OPI Tease-y Does It!

Do you have a preference too, or am I just too picky? 😉

Inglot – 343, 346, 635, & 636

Were you wondering what I bought at Inglot? I got 5 polishes, this awesome shimmery eye shadow that is pink and brown, and 3 round pans for my 10 round pallet.

Let’s get to the 4 dark polishes I got! (The other was a light pink matte that I’ll swatch later, it wasn’t that exciting.)

These are SO amazing. 343 and 346 are really… dazzling! 343 is a wine color and 346 is my perfect favorite brown color that isn’t so dark that it could be mistaken for black and isn’t bronzey!

635 and 636 are their new “breathable” line of polishes. They are a creme base with a hidden shimmer. 635 is taupe with purple shimmer and 636 is a purple magenta with raspberry pink shimmer.

I took another shot that focused more on 635 and 636 so you can hopefully see the hidden shimmer come out a little more. It isn’t as apparent as it is in the bottle (the bottle I’m holding is 635 by the way!!) but you can still see it!

What do you think!? 635 can sound like a Paradoxal dupe but it really isn’t… it is much more strictly taupe, the only thing that is purple is the shimmer inside!

I love them all and can’t give any of them up! 🙂
