Throwback Thursday! OPI “Lincoln Park After Dark”


IMG_7718Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday! Its been since August that I’ve done one of these posts, and it feels good to break out some of my old polishes again!   Inspired by the Instagram hashtag, every Thursday I like to showcase an older polish in my collection that hasn’t gotten a lot of love from me in recent months.   It reminds me to reuse the polishes that I have in my collection and not just buy a polish and wear it once.

And I figured I should come back with a bang, and showcase one of my all time favorite polishes!

IMG_7719OPI “Lincoln Park After Dark” is a super super dark purple, so dark that it looks black. This is such a classic shade and it was my first every OPI that I ever purchased.  And this is the only OPI that I’ve ever had to repurchase, because I used up an entire bottle! That is how much I love this shade, and I think it should be a staple in everyone’s collection, whether you’re an avid collector or a novice.

IMG_7720The formula on this polish is amazing.  It is completely opaque in just 2 coats and really easy to control.  The consistency is amazing, the dry time is amazing, and it’s just overall amazing.  The only negative is that while it dries really glossy, it tends to dull with the slightest smudge.  Overall, if you don’t own this, you need to!

What do you guys think?  What was your first OPI?

    • same here! i always end up wearing all my new ones, especially since i have a shopping problem lately lol its fun to see the old ones and to see if i still like them. the first time i did one of these posts i tried an oldie and i hate it now!

      • When I first discovered OPI I just bought any I could find on sale. I have a bunch of streaky, frosty, taupes that I look at and say “REALLY?! That’s what you got?” Sheesh.

  1. I adore OPI darks! I am trying to work out what my first OPI polish was, which is ridiculous because it really wasn’t that long ago that I first started collecting (hoarding) polish. I know the first ones I paid for personally were I Vant To Be A Lonestar and I Don’t Give A Rotterdam which are both kind of at the other end of the scale from this polish – light and shimmery. I think I am going to add this to my wishlist, along side Midnight in Moscow.

  2. My polish obsession is only under a year but the collection has multiplied fast. I recently just got this one but haven’t used it yet as it’s summer here. My first OPI La positively hot. Still one of my fav pinks

    • you should try it! its surprising how wearing black makes you feel edger. and i find that it isn’t as intense as i think it will be. if you ever try it out, let me know! and thanks for commenting!
