Get ready glossy nail lovers, for it looks like matte is the emerging trend for fall. When OPI is on board, you know it’s gonna blow up. I bought my matte top coat (Orly) back when I saw CND buffing a matte finish on nails at NYFW and now more and more companies are catching on to the trend. Set to launch in July, the OPI Matte collection takes six popular existing shades and mattifies them for a unique look.
OPI unveils a new look in nail color â€“ an edgy new matte finish that is daring, trend-setting, head-turning! New OPI Matte features six of OPIâ€™s most in-demand shades in this must-have new look.

â€œOPI Matte is cutting edge for nails in terms of sophistication and style,â€ says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. â€œAn all-matte nail is fresh, confident, and very fashion runway, and OPI Matte is meant for those moments when you want to make a major fashion statement. OPI Matte does not wear as long as original OPI Nail Lacquer â€“ but its impact is long remembered!â€
Suzi also suggests wearing OPI Matte together with the traditional gloss formula of the same OPI color. â€œYou can do a matte nail with a matching gloss tip, or a gloss nail with a matte edge. Itâ€™s like mixing different textures of the same color in an outfit.â€ To maintain the OPI Matte finish, do not use any base coat, top coat, drying drops, or hand lotion when wearing these lacquers.
Russian Navy – Wait until you see this deep-sea indigo!
La Paz-itively Hot – A hot pink perfect for when youâ€™re Bo-livia la vida loca.
You Donâ€™t Know Jacques! – If you donâ€™t know how trendy this taupe is!
Lincoln Park After Dark – Where midnight meets purple.
Gargantuan Green Grape – Green kissed by the summer sun.
I REALLY love Suzi’s tip about mixing the textures. It’s a new twist on the funky french. It reminds me of the black on black nails the CND team created to show Kimora Lee Simmons for her Baby Phat show a few seasons back.
I know the MUA girls have been all over matte polishes but will you buy or just mattify the polishes you already own? Since these can’t be worn with a base, top or treatment product I do wonder how they’ll wear. Thoughts?
