OPI Matte Polish Collection

June 10, 2009

OPI Matte Polishes in:
Russian Navy, Lincoln Park After Dark, You Don’t Know Jacques!
Alpine Snow, La Paz-Itively Hot, Gargantuan Green Grape

While I wasn’t too crazy about the KO Knock Out matte polishes when I gave them a go at Bendel’s a few months back, I’m still tingly with anticipation awaiting the July launch of OPI’s matte collection, partially because it’s tough to find a really nice color selection when it comes to mattes.

Come July, OPI will be launching 6 matte polishes to correspond with their already released, best-selling glossy counterparts. Matte polish definitely makes a statement, but it also requires a lot of upkeep since they tend to show more wear & tear, especially since they’re meant to be worn sans topcoat. And for those of you who aren’t feeling the whole matte nail trend, you can minimally indulge by using the matte polish as an accent shade (think matte french tips!).


I’ve also been hearing that Butter London’s Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat when used on top of your polish basically acts as a mattifier, meaning you can get the matte look using all your favorite polishes. I’m dreaming of matte Konadicures!

Here’s a little more info on the Nail Foundation from Butter London’s site:

This treatment hides and smoothes tiny ridges and imperfections in the nail. It is like cover-up, or foundation make-up for the nail. It leaves a silky, matte finish when used alone. This makes it an excellent product for MEN who want an invisible, but immaculate manicure. When used as basecoat, it provides a beautiful, smooth surface on which to paint. This will give a wonderful result to the look of your lacquer.
