OPI suede is my all time favorite OPI collection. It is the only OPI collection where I wanted every single color. I love this collection more than the it's summer for shore collection 2003 (bright holos), more than the Night Brights collection 2007 (including my private jet, Ink), and more than the Broadway collection 2003 (La Bohemme, Man of La Mancha)
Collection: Suede, Fall 2009
Description of color: Matte but with micro silver glitter making it known as Suede
Coverage/Coats: 2 coats
Resistance: day 3 only tip wear, no chipping
Drying Time: Incredibly Fast
Nail Art Stamping: Does not stamp, dries too fast
Base coat used: Nubar Nu nails
Removal: Harder to remove than an OPI Cream polish (e.g. Jade is the new black) but easier to remove than an OPI glitter (e.g. Mad as a hatter)
1. The first swatch is We'll Always Have Paris Suede
2. The second swatch is Russian Navy Suede
3. The third swatch is Ink Suede
This is a swatch of the original Ink
4. The fourth swatch is Lincoln Park After Dark Suede
5. The fifth swatch is You Don't Know Jacques Suede
6.The sixth swatch is Orly Iron Butterfly...Unfortunately, I haven't gotten my hands on Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees Suede yet..so this is my temp. substitute for it.This is almost a dupe for Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees Suede.
I know that Russian Navy Suede and Ink Suede look similar so I did side by side swatches for comparisons. Lincoln park after dark suede is also seen in the photos

People have complained that the Suede collection chips after a few hours of application, I have not had this problem. Below is a picture of what day 3 tip wear looks like.
Do you guys have any all time favorite nail polish collections?
