I actually have enough swatches photographed and enough time before bed to make two more posts. Oh yeah, I rule. :)
I only bought three of the OPI Mattes, and I hate two of them. There, I said it. I liked the suedes much better. The OPI mattes were too chalky and gloopy and brushstroke-y to me. Ick. This is why I buy so much drugstore polish -- it's much easier to stomach wasting $1 or even $4 on ugly polish than it is wasting $8 or $9.
Also, I think this is one of the ugliest nail colors I've ever seen. The color itself isn't so bad, but the color as a matte is putrid and terrible and... I should probably try this with a topcoat.
This is OPI in Gargantuan Green Grape Matte:
This is OPI Russian Navy Matte. It's okay, just way too dark. Also, I asked my coworker one day what she thought about it and she said, "Umm, your fingers look like you're dead."
Here it is in slightly better light so you can see that it is, in fact, dark blue and not black:
And here is the one OPI Matte that I own and really like. And I'm not even a "pink" person, but this is gorgeous. It's a little shimmery and satiny and just HOT. It's La Paz Itively Hot Matte:
