NOTD: OPI Russian Navy Suede

OPI Russian Navy Suede

I'm a big fan of completing things, and realized this weekend that I never finished swatching the OPI Suedes. Russian Navy Suede is absolutely gorgeous and I can't believe I saved it for last, AND waited to long to wear it!

Here's a list of all the OPI Suede shades:
  • Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow Suede
  • Ink Suede
  • Lincoln Park After Dark Suede
  • Russian Navy Suede
  • Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees Suede
  • We'll Always Have Paris Suede
  • You Don't Know Jacques! Suede

All were released in Fall 2009 with the exception of Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow Suede, which was released in Fall 2010.  The "suede" finish followed the matte craze, and is more of a semi-matte effect, with added shimmer.

Although it was suggested that you not use base or topcoat, I have found that using an adhesive base coat and allowing it to dry completely (about 10 minutes) doesn't cause any adverse effects, and actually extends the wear a bit. Of course, using a topcoat totally changes the suede effect, but it is quite pretty.

Pin It!

I really like the look of this. Thanks for the tip with the basecoat, I'll try that :)
