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.
