OPI Lincoln Park After Dark Matte

This was a polish I wore a while ago, in between posts for the 31 Day Challenge. I needed something quick before I headed out the door, and what's faster than a matte?

As is Lincoln Park After Dark wasn't chic enough on its own, OPI had to go and up the wow factor by making it matte. I'm in love!

As we all know, Lincoln Park After Dark is a deep eggplant. And by that I mean it's black to everyone except you. Because you know that it's actually a deep eggplant and feel some satisfaction knowing that secret. I can't remember for sure, but I think I used two coats for this. It applied like every other matte: kinda uneven.

These pictures are probably a couple months old, and remind me of how I really need to start taking better care of my cuticles again. It's just so hard during the winter! And I live in MN, so I really do experience winter. Have I told you how much I hate winter? I really, really hate winter. Especially now that the holidays are over. Now winter serves no purpose except to make me miserable.

I wish I had the normal version of LPAD and a matte topcoat so I could compare the difference. Surely that exists? To Google I go.

  1. I love mattes! They don't last very long, but it doesn't bother me because I change my polish frequently anyway. LPAD matte was the first one I ever bought.
