Heather's Hues Oktoberfest

Once upon a time, I found swatches of Heather's Hues October 2015 LE, Oktoberfest, and swooned.  It was of course long gone by then (that's my luck), but Heather herself was able to track down a bottle for me (way better luck!).

indoor, bright CF lighting
Oktoberfest is a deep smoky (not quite black) base, with a gorgeous wine to green duochrome shimmer.

window-filtered daylight
My camera refused to accurately pick up the wine, but it was a lot more intensely red than these shots show, yet always blackened at the edges.  Very vampy, very dead-of-winter.

The emerald green shift was quite intense, and came out with barely a tilt of my fingers.

indoor, bright CF lighting
Like a lot of duochromes in darker bases (most of ILNP's, CrowsToes Huginn & Muninn), Oktoberfest looked smoothly pearly in low or indirect light, then very shimmery in bright light.

I stamped using the braid pattern and one of the gorgeous horse heads from Creative Shop 17 and Emily de Molly Rose Gold + Kaleidoscope Sea Depths.

outdoor, bright sunlight (finally!!)
Rating:  4 out of 5 stars.  The formula was a little thicker than I like, but the 2nd coat went on perfectly smooth after a touch of thinner.  This combo wore great, too.

Where to buy:  it's a long sold-out LE, so blog sales/destashes are your best bet.
