I absolutely LOVE dark, vampy nail polish shades. OPI Lincoln Park After Dark is a very, very dark..almost black purple matte creme shade. But unfortunately, LPAD was a bit of a let down. The color was just blah on me, and the finish of the polish was very dull. Also, the polish chipped super fast, like within the same day! Usually I love OPI polishes, but I will not be purchasing LPAD again.
Click continued to see a picture of LPAD on my nails (2 coats):
I am such a girly girl, that i wanted to do something aliltle different....this color is really dark, but its a nice color on fingernails...i used it when i got a mani, my nails are short so it looked really nice
I tried this at a nail salon and liked it so much that I bought it. I just applied it on my hands and there's no staining on my skin even though it's a dark color. It's not as harsh as black but still gives you the drama of dark, matte polish. I love it! I just don't love the price.
I loooove this! It's my favorite nail polish =) I love dark purply/ brown colors and this is my favorite. I always ask for it when I get a manicure/ pedicure. Of course it is expensive for a nailpolish and I'm a little scared of the harmful ingredients that have been found in OPI products, so this gets a 4. But I still looooove the color =)
I'm in love with this color, there's absolutely nothing else quite like it. It looks black in certain lighting, deep plum in others. It's very sexy and vampy, particularly on short nails. I do two coats and top it with Revlon topcoat and it doesn't budge for a week. Such a great color!
Love this nailpolish! I love both this version and Lincoln Park at midnight... I have tried many polishes since buying these, but I always come back to these two. Lovely alternative to black nailpolish and the purple is not overbearing.
I'm not really a big fan of nail polish, I usually keep them bare, but I really do enjoy this color. It is a really dark purple eggplant, almost black with 2-3 coats. The quality of OPI nail polish is impressive it does not go on streaky and is relatively fool proof. The brush is also really nice. Definitely does not look cheap-o when applied which I do notice with other peoples nail polishes. I will be venturing into vampy reds next.
This is my favorite nailpolish color right now. The deep rich hues of eggplant are beautiful against any skin and short nails. It has a fine finish and goes on extremely smooth. OPI has done well with this color!
This is a gorgeous, sophisticated eggplant color. Best if worn on short nails. I wore this for Halloween and after we week later, the color is still going on strong. OPI makes the best polishes.
This is a beautiful eggplant color. Like other reviewers have said, it's a great alternative to black, and it doesn't look cheap. However, I have to say, I'm not sure if this color is great for Asian girls. Unfortunately, the purple tends to get a little lost on my skin tone. It doesn't look horrible, but it just doesn't look amazing either.
