Limited Edition Sephora by OPI Metro Chic in matte

metro chic

i went to the Sephora last friday looking for the regular metro chic that Sephora by OPI made. the colour received rave reviews on youtube and my girlfriend told me that i had to try it. it looked like a nice fall colour, it being kind of mauve-y, purple, smoky grey. i was pleasantly surprised to find that the much loved metro chic colour came in matte. i had seen matte nail colours at aritzia in the past week for a whopping $22 CDN a bottle. so $12 a bottle really felt like a bargain for matte nail polish. it was the last bottle on the shelf and i hurried home to remove all traces of OPI Siberian nights purple with white polka dots off my nails and tried the metro chic in matte while seated in front of the television.

Sephora recommends that you do NOT use a base coat or top coat for best results. i really liked the thin brush that Sephora by OPI offers as opposed to the thick brush that the regular OPI has. it is similar to the China Glaze nail colours that i’ve tried. it dried pretty quickly and you could easily tell when it was dry because it looked matte. i was skeptical of it’s “chip-resistant”-ness because i didn’t use a base or top coat. my nail colour has surprisingly stayed intact for about 4 or 5 days. a satisfactory amount of time for no top or base coat. The colour suits fairer skin tones better than my asian skin but I think it still looked good on me.  However, after much touching of my face and applying of hand lotion, it’s turned a bit shiny on the surface. 

my girlfriend is hosting a girls’ night soon and i wonder how much the girls will like this colour when i bring over all my OPI’s. 🙂
