To matte or not to matte: Am I forgetting something?

The answer to that question is no.  I've just been bit caught up in life stuff.  I will be emailing the winner of out giveaway tonight and when they respond I will be posting the winner and of course some of your answers!

Now for the polish!  So I am in the loves with OPI Suedes.  They are mattes that never fall flat because of the shimmer. But for some reason the blue and blurple of the collection(Russian Navy and Ink) did nothing for me.  In my head I wanted them to be a bit more colour and a bit less shimmer.  I personally thought this would look more chic. (I don't know if this makes sense but I think it will when you see the polish I'm about to show you).

So was I ever happy when I found Nicole By OPI in No Limits Matte(in a discount bin)!  It was the colour that I was wishing the others had been!  First of all I'm not sure why they called this matte.  It's still under the OPI umbrella and it leans MUCH closer to a suede.  No limits is a deep rich navy blue, with just enough shimmer.  I used two coats but you can get away with one.  My one complaint about this is I found it dried SUPER fast.  So I had to move quickly so I didn't get any unwanted streaks, or bumpyness.

I think this was part of the limited edition Gossip girl collection, which means if you want this you'll have to do some hunting online.

 With top coat

 Ps.  I tried ONE LAST TIME to take a photo of the polish Robyn reviewed yesterday!


  1. That is a cool shade! I was really happy when I found Ink Suede, but it's been sitting in my box of untrieds ever since. I get the magic just disappeared :)

  2. Wow this is so beautiful - in all the shown version, I too need to try Ink Suede soon :)

  3. I love suede finishes. Only downside for me is how fast they start chipping!

  4. Really pretty although I think I prefer it with top coat. I suppose I'm a shine addict!

  5. Blue, matte (or suede)...gorgeous!!! :-) I like it also with top coat on, but I prefer it without! :-)

  6. Definitely loving it matte!

  7. Love this shade! I like it better shiny.

    Also, your nails are beautiful. Perfect shape and length!

  8. Love it!
    I've asked a few times before, how do you do your nails so perfectly and keep your cuticles so awesome?

  9. That is pretty as a matte and it looks like blue jeans, but then you put the topcoat on it and I gasped adn said Oooooh.... prretttttty.

  10. So gorgeous! Love the suede finish... it's really classy and edgy! :)
