There is significant debate online about the similarity between the two OPI shades. Germanicure has also been touted as a dupe for the HTF Malice. So...on with the comparison!

For giggles I then layered these with another firm favourite from 2012 - Fantasy Fire by Max Factor. This is the ultimate layering polish - its too sheer to be much use on its own (it took 5 coats to get the in-bottle colour on my nails). It's a violet base with pink, purple and gold shimmer particles. So it layers brilliantly with any colour that has any of those three colours as a base....

For my manicure this week I picked my favourite and painted the rest to match: OPI EMOI with Fantasy Fire...love it! This is the fourth time I've used EMOI since I got it, which makes it officially my most used 2012 polish. It's like they designed this one with me in mind. Can't wait to see what OPI brings out this Fall!
