OPI... My Obsession

Saturday my friend Jennifer and I drove around Henderson looking for the Holiday OPI polish before getting mani/pedis. Unfortunately, the stores were sold out of almost every color but we did manage to pick up a couple along with a bottle each of the new OPI Suede collection. The 6 colors in the collection are matte versions of other popular colors.This is Ink Suede, the matte version of Ink which was originally in the SS07 collection. I haven't been a big fan of the matte look, but somehow the shimmer in these colors really does look like suede on your nails! The bottle comes with a warning that it will wear more quickly than non-suede colors, most likely because you are not supposed to use a top coat (that would make it a gloss and not a matte color). We took our chances and I have to say I'm kind of loving it. Won't buy every color but I would suggest the Ink and "We'll Always Have Paris Suede" (France collection). It's a soft purplish-pink mauvy color and looks beautiful on olive skin tones. If you're not vibing the matte, they also look AMAZING with a topcoat. I love the metallic shimmer.
