O.P.I. Russian Navy Suede

I was going through the crazy pile of unposted swatches and was thinking to myself 'how come I've already shown you all my OPIs?', since I simply didn't remember having any prepared for posting. And then I opened my OPI folder and saw I have a bunch of them! Let's start with this Suede beauty. Russian Navy. I really like it. 




You all know the Suedes of O.P.I., I'm sure. It's from their Suede Collection for Fall 2009, where they turned their old shades into suede finish. Quite unsuccessfully, IMHO, since none really resemble the glossy originals, but Suedes are still lovely! I'd love to have a couple more, like You Don't Know Jacques! and Lincoln Park After Dark.

The application of Russian Navy Suede is a bit tricky. You have to be fast and careful with it. Nothing major though. I think the final effect is worth it. I actually prefer it Suede, I don't like it as much with a TC over it. Go figure. Naturally, suedes chip faster, just as mattes do. I don't really care about that, since in average I change my mani every other day or even every day, depends on my mood and they do last that long.

What do you think of Suedes, are you a fan? Do you have any? Or do you prefer the mattes?

Thank you for reading!

  4. I have LPAD and WAHP, but I'd love if this one would join them! It's a beauty :) And it's pretty with TC, but I prefer suede finish as well.

  5. Since this week I am the proud owner of all Suedes <3. I love them all, especially when I am in a hurry or something. I am currently wearing Russian Navy suede and layered CND Sapphire sparkle on top, very pretty combo!

  11. This is gorgeous but I'm a bit sad when I see it... I ordered it last year but there was a mistake with the order and the seller sent me the "normal" version and not the Suede. :(
    I love it even with top coat! *_*

  13. I'm glad I see so many Suede fans. I remember when they got out people weren't too crazy about the application and formula, but I love it still. :) I wouldn't mind having more either!

    Thank you for your lovely comments! *muah*
