Two coats of My Very First Knockwurst (MVFK)
I love nude and muted colors so naturally I have a ton of them in my collection. Right off the bat I thought of Sephora by OPI's Xox Betsey. I swatched the two below. Can you tell which is which?
All are MVFK except the pinky, which is Xox Betsey.
XOX Betsey actually looks a bit pink when paired with other nudes. I would say because MFVK is quite pink, it makes Xox Betsey look a lot more nude.

Another look at German-icure by OPI
Can you see the gold shimmer flex underneath? It is very pretty for the Fall!
Both of these shades were easy to work with. MVFK was a little on the thicker side, but that did not cause longer dry time nor made it harder to paint. I love nude colors and I love pink so MVFK was a great color for my collection since I did not have anything like that. German-icure by OPI is a very unique brown red with hints of golden shimmers. I also don't have anything like it and definitely will be wearing this a lot for the fall. In different lights, you can see the German-icure shade change colors a bit!
Application: Two coats created a clean and opaque manicure. Formula is a bit thicker than Essie's nail polishes, but does not make it harder to apply.
Brush: It is wider than Essie and Revlon nail polishes. I have small nails so it was very had to apply OPI nail polishes to my pinky.
Dry time: Similar to other OPI nail polishes, a minute or two.
Staying power: It has stayed on my nails for 3 days now without chipping. I do have a top coat on.
Overall: I really enjoy the different colors in the OPI Fall 2012 Germany collection. The two that I chose were very different, but so pretty for the Fall. I especially love the golden hints of shimmer in German-icure by OPI and the pink-leaning nude shade of My Very First Knockwurst. Staying power and dry time are like other OPI polishes.
