|It looks like OPI is following up the Matte collection with set of satin metallic finish polishes along the lines of the Zoya Matte Velvets. Dubbed Suede by OPI it’s another reworking of existing shades only this time they’re mattified with shimmer. So those of us that were let down by Russian Navy Matte not having any sparkle, this may be just what we were looking for. Get the full deets after the jump!|
OPI Introduces Nail Lacquer Shades with a Suede Finish OPI brings the look of lush suede to the ultimate accessory â€“ nails â€“ with new Suede by OPI Nail Lacquers in six best-selling OPI shades.
â€œSuede by OPI elevates nails to a new dimension of fashion, as exciting as a pair of stiletto-heeled suede pumps,â€ says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.
â€œThe rich suede look is a stunning complement to fall fashions, and is meant for the woman who is confident about her style and wants to stand out. Suede by OPI does not wear as long as original OPI Nail Lacquer â€“ but it is a totally original look youâ€™ll want to own this season!â€
According to Suzi, you can wear any of the Suede by OPI shades on its own, or create your own look by mixing it with the traditional gloss formula of the same OPI color. â€œWearing both textures together is like wearing a fabulous suede jacket with a sexy silk blouse,â€ says Suzi. To maintain the Suede by OPI finish, do not use any base coat, top coat, drying drops, or hand lotion when wearing these lacquers.
