Cannot believe I found this at Ulta today! Thought it had been discontinued. I wore this about 5 years ago and so happy to have found it again!!! Super stunning eggplant purple with a shimmer. Super dark but not at all black. Love the shine too this!!!! After wearing this i realize it kinda gives me lobster hands... Maybe it is the purple undertone or the shimmer. Did not do that when I wore it several years age... I had younger hands I guess. Still a pretty color but probably won't wear it again. Creams look better on me.

I read the reviews on this polish and I suspect that at least some people are actually reviewing OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, rather than OPI Lincoln Park at Midnight. Not only are the names similar enough to cause confusion, the polishes are pretty similar, but they are NOT the same. LPAD is a creme, no shimmer or iridescence whatsoever, and while it is a warm plum, it's so blackened as to be, well, essentially black. The same is not true of LPAM! (Normally, I don't do reviews by comparison, but in this case, I think it's justified to mention it.) Lincoln Park at Midnight is a very deep, slightly muted, purple-plum. In the bottle, you can see what looks like a greyish-purple shimmer, but on the nail, this is surface iridescence rather than shimmer. This is not a "deep shimmer" or "hidden shimmer". The iridescence does serve to lift the colour a little bit, and allow the purple-plum nature to show through in many lighting situations. I don't think I'd actually call this an off-black, but you could: a purple-plum off-black with greyed-plum iridescence. And that description, in my opinion, makes this polish unique. I've got nothing else quite like it in a stash of hundreds (I do have a full-on dupe of LPAD, though, and have used other dupes of it, so LPAD is pretty far from unique). The formula is pretty okay, not terribly draggy, but some care needs to be taken to get even coats. The first coat is fairly streaky, though if you have a really steady hand and really good brush technique, you MIGHT be able to get away with one coat, which is much more about the plum tones. The second coat (which I need because I'm good, but not that good with a polish brush) evens everything out and darkens it up. Top coat brings out the iridescence a bit, but not greatly. Personally, I really like this polish, but then, I do like dark polishes (they tend to be striking and look nice with my pale complexion). This is good with my pink and blue cool undertones, and tends to bring out the pink just a bit (no lobster hands or anything, though). This polish is, in my opinion, very sophisticated, elegant, and the not-always-black plus the surface iridescence makes it different from every other deep, near-black plum I've used.

This is to be confused with Lincoln Park After Midnight, which it's not. This is purple/plum deep shimmer almost. It's very pretty and I love it. Its cool toned and has depth to it unlike the Lincoln Park After.This is pretty unique to OPI and hard to find.

Very impressed with this color. It is a rich grape/plum purple. I love that from a glance it looks like your typical vampy almost black polish but when you take a second look you can easily see that it's purple. It's just the right amount of purple just to brighten it up a bit. It applied well as most OPI polish's do and dried pretty quickly (with my Essie "Good to Go" top coat of course :D). Love it! I know I will reach for it often.

It is a very pretty colour, but the formula is very streaky.

LPAM is a gorgeous, blackened purple/dark eggplant colour with a beautiful shimmer that adds a sophisticated, complex depth. In dim light it can be mistaken for black, but in regular light you can tell it is dark eggplant. I always get compliments when I wear this polish - it is THAT stunning. I would recommend this colour over Lincoln Park After Dark if you want something dark and vampy that doesn't look black. A coworker of mine wore LPAD recently and even up close, to me, it looked black. I have about 60 bottles of nail polish, about 40 of which are OPI and I have to say that LPAM and Ski Teal We Drop are my two all time favourite vampy polishes. The formula is outstanding, it goes on as smooth as silk and the pro wide brush makes is so easy to give yourself a professional looking mani. I gave it a '5' for price b/c I purchased it at Secret Nail and Beauty Supply in Vancouver, Canada. They charge a $10 annual membership, but sell OPI for $5.50 (CDN) and China Glaze is $3.19 (CDN)! Definitely worth it if you are addicted to nail polish like me! :)

This is my favorite color of all time. This is the first review I've written here and this polish is the reason. Perfect dark eggplant color with the most incredible eggplant shimmer. It's just so elegant. I just can't believe I found a color I love this much. So happy and I hope they make it forever. Try this color, you will not be sorry. I don't have have the "after dark" version, I always thought it would be too black for me. This one is perfect. My holy grail and signature color. Thanks OPI!

I love this color! It's a beautiful eggplant purple. I took away a lippy because it's a bit streaky with one coat, and it takes foreverrrr to dry and harden. I know that most polishes require 2 coats for full coverage, but I applied a relatively thin coat and still got full coverage (minus a few streaky spots). Applying 2 coats just to cover the streaky spots wouldn't be worth the time it takes to dry. This is my first bottle of OPI, and I'm sure it won't be my last! I'm not crazy about the texture of the polish, but OPI's colors are very much my style.

This is my favorite nail polish ever! I've gone through at least 3 bottles since I started wearing it a few years ago, and it's never been hard to find. It's a beautiful dark purple, and the shimmer makes it very interesting to look at; it isn't flat or boring at all. It may seem intimidating, as it can look nearly black at first glance, but I get compliments whenever I wear this. It doesn't look too harsh or "goth" on my extremely fair skin. I never tried LPAD, so I can't compare the two, but prefer colors with more shimmer/dimension--this was perfect. As an added bonus, I live in Lincoln Park; as if I needed a reason to love this polish even more. Try it!

I have light skin with yellow undertones and this is the perfect shade for me, fingers and toes alike. It's bold and dark but still elegant and feminine - not too harsh as a black would be. The eggplant shimmer is subtle but absolutely gorgeous when it catches the light. I would recommend this shade to anyone looking for a bold fall OR summer polish. Opaque in two coats and dries relatively quickly to a gorgeous professional finish. On my third bottle and counting!
