This is my first Suede polish and I'm impressed. Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow is the newest addition to the Suede family and I purchased it because I was informed the polish's formula was improved. I am wearing this polish in my August Favorites video!

Application: 2 coats provide opaque color and surprisingly, the polish dries very quickly! It has a matte finish, while the glitters add a bit of texture. It applies smoothly and for the most part, evenly. OPI's professional brush is the perfect fit for my nails!

Color: Without a top coat, the color is a dry (boring) forest green with a bit of metallic shimmer. Personally, I would never wear the suede finish alone. I feel as though it ages my hands, which already look older than your typical 21 year-old's hands. With a top coat, however, Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow shines! Literally, it shines. The green base brightens up to a rich forest green and the metallic shimmers burst with iridescent color under the sunlight. I love it!!

  4. Wow! The top coat makes a HUGE difference! Very nice colour, though! :)
    Question, what the does the suede feel like? Is it smooth or rough? (Looks kind of rough-ish to me if you get my drift! >.<)

  6. Cathy - I must agree. If I wear it without a top coat on my toes, it makes my feet look like an alien's.. LOL

    Hkcandy - Aww, thank you very much!

    PetiteL - It looks rough, doesn't it? It's actually quite smooth to the touch. I couldn't detect any bumps or ridges :)

    Missxxmai - I purchase my polishes at Ulta or at a nail supply store, if I have the time to drive 20 minutes, which I usually do not :( But Ulta always has the new collections in stock so check there first, always!

  8. I've got "We'll Always have Paris" Suede, it's a pretty idea LOVED that it dried so quickly, but I agree with the after effect, alone by itself...awkward. Maybe it's just something one needs to get used to, but I've had that polish for almost a year now and its very hard to be completely happy with it without a glossy topcoat.

  12. doesn't wearing top coat taking away from the suede look? With top coat is beautiful, but it gives a look of normal nail polish finish.
