Pretty Polish: OPI’s Suede Collection

I love dark, bold nail polish. The dark colors like a deep berry and navy are always so classic and uber-feminine this time of year.

OPI’s Suede Collection, released for fall 2009, will add a dose of glitz to your finger tips. The new collection features six classic shades revamped in a glittery, matte finish. These polishes are part of their existing matte nail polish shades. They have the same non-glossy finish you love, but with a fun glittery sparkle finish. It’s a perfect combination for the holiday season. Pick your favorite from these jewel-tone colors to polish up your ensemble.

The colors are really cool and unique. The formula comes out fairly sheer, but a second coat will do the trick. They are meant to be worn with a matte finish, but if you prefer a shine, simply add a topcoat for added glamour. These colors also dried super quickly and had a satiny smooth finish. The company warned the Suede Collection doesn’t wear as long as the original lacquer, but in my experience it lasted for the better part of the week.

Here’s the names, in clockwise order:

OPI Ink. One of my most favorite shades in a dazzling blueish/purple hue.

Russian Navy. A deep blue shade finished with a touch of shimmer adds a chic accent to all your fall looks.

Suzi Skies In The Pyrenees. The dark charcoal shade with a silvery shimmer is just stunning.

Don’t Know Jacques. This shimmering golden mocha polish is the perfect shade for the fall season.

We’ll Always Have Paris. A pretty, rich plum colored polish is warm, romantic hue with loads of silver sparkle to it.

Lincoln Park After Dark. A deep purple shimmer gives a bold attitude.

So what do you think of wearing dark polish? Would you wear them? Let me know in the comments.
