I have a love/indifferent relationship with this polish. I love the effect it gives from afar, but up close, the color is a bit blah. It's so close to black that it's actually a little boring because it's hard to detect any undertones (though it does look slightly more interesting in sunlight). This isn't an -unattractive- color. There are just other vampies that I find more visually interesting -- OPI's Suzi Says Da, Orly Naughty, etc.
A gorgeous, glossy, deep black violet colour. This is the same colour as some "Queen of the Night" tulips that I planted last year. It is black in non direct lights but when the light hits you see the deep purple. This colour is not for the faint of heart but it looks phenomenal against my pale skin. The wear of LPAD is great.
This is one of my fave OPI nail colors, it's just a gorgeous dark purple...it's so perfect for fall/winter. This is just so pretty, simple and matte.
I picked this NP up because of the great reviews, but wasn't too impressed.. I liked the colour at the first coat but it was WAY too streaky (unusual consiering my other OPI's never streak) but at 2-3 coats I got an even colour, but too dark for my liking...FYI I'm med beige brown skin tone, I think it may look more flattering on lighter skin tones like the girl pictured below- I think it looks great on her... I also didn't have the greatest technique and got the colour on surrounding skin.
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.

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.
