NOTD: OPI Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees Suede

For you who are waiting for it, the Tip and Toe Care post that I normally do on mondays will be a little delayed as I'm not done writing it yet and about to head to work. But no fear, I'll post it as soon as possible!
Until then rest your eyes on this beauty, OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyreness Suede. Whew, longest name ever! I'm just gonna call her Suzi Suede. This is a gorgeous charcoal shade with silver flecks/shimmer. It has a matte suede finish which is really pretty but since I'm wearing it to work I added topcoat to hopefully make it more durable and chip resistant, the top coat also darkened the color a little and added some dimension to it. Beautiful!



This was the first time I used a suede finish color and application was alot easier than I had expected, thought it would dry faster than I could apply it and it'd be streaky and messy with bald spots. But it wasn't! Probably thanks to the OPI wide brush, can almost coat the whole nail with one stroke. It was really opaque and if I had been more careful I might have been able to get away with only one coat, I did get a couple bald spots though after running the brush over some nails one too many times so I did 2 coats to even it all out. Know these suede polishes don't wear as well as normal polishes so I'm excited to see how it holds up at work today. I need to wear it on it's own too at some point to see the difference between topcoat and no topcoat.
I only bought 2 of the suede colors but now I think I need to get the rest too, they're just too pretty with the silver flecks in them! Definitely makes them different and interesting.

Update: After a day at work I only had some minor chips, not all that bad. Would say with topcoat it wears almost as well as any regular polish.
