OPI Suede Nail Polish Lincoln Park After Dark

I was curious about OPI Suede nail polish, and I have always loved the OPI shade Lincoln Park After Dark, so I was happy to see it in the Suede version.

OPI Suede is basically the matte version of a frosted polish, which results in a suede-like effect. It is an interesting look. It appears matte, but light can catch on the frost a bit, so it isn’t completely without shine at times. I rather like it and I think I prefer it over a standard matte look.

OPI states that the suede nail lacquers do not wear as long as other polishes and they also instruct not to wear a top coat with the suede polish. Wearing a top coat certainly would defeat the purpose, since it would remove the matte effect.  As for wear, I didn’t think it was too bad. I started chipping it a day later because I was doing yard work, but it actually held up better through that than I expected it to. I can’t say that I particularly noticed any less wear from it than I do with standard OPI nail polish.
