OPI Lincoln Park After Dark and OPI Over the Taupe

I got both of these for Christmas and I absolutely love both of them - I don't know why it's taken me so long to try Lincoln Park After Dark in particular!  Basically, my nail collection consists of purple, black, red, pink, grey, taupe and a couple of random metallics and some oranges so both of these ticked the colour box for me.

OPI Lincoln Park After Dark
This is a really glossy, dark purple, so dark it actually looks black most of the time but every now and again in certain lights a little bit of purple will flash through.  I love it, especially when my nails are a bit shorter.  I think it would be nice to layer it too, maybe with a purple glitter or flakie?  As ever, I found the OPI brush really easy to use and longevity was ok.  If you like dark colours, you'll like this.

OPI Over the Taupe
This is a pretty standard taupe - not too orange and not too grey - which, to be honest, is why I like it.  I wear quite a lot of taupes for work or when I'm wearing an outfit that already has a lot of colour in so I'm happy to add another one to my collection, as they are all ever so slightly different.  As above, I liked the brush and it lasted ok.  I'd recommend this if you're a taupe lover or if you don't really have any in your collection and want a decent first one.


  1. Love the look of Lincoln Park After Dark xx

  2. It really is gorgeous, and it lasted really well on my nails (especially for a dark colour) - relatively chip free!

  3. I love both of those polishes. I'm from Manchester too!

  7. I've wanted to try taupe polish for ages; and I've also been meaning to try an O.P.I polish for quite a while, but didn't know which to start with... Thank you for solving both for me! :D x

  8. I have OPI OTT and like it lots, though think I slightly prefer Nails Inc Jermyn St

  9. Hey! Where do you get your OPI varnishes from in the UK? Ive tried looking everywhere but cant find any. do you buy them online? im currently in america so just deciding whether or not to stock up! xx

    1. Hey, I do tend to get them online (Ebay for the most part) and my mam gets box sets from QVC so I get the spoils from that :-)
