Polish of the Week: OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte

OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte, three coats, with flash

I have having some difficulty deciding what polish to put on yesterday. I have a whole bunch of polishes that I have yet to actually wear as a full mani, but none of them seemed to catch my attention. So I started to dig through one of my boxes of spring/summer shades. When I got to the pinks, I immediately picked up OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte.

I think maybe I wasn't in the mood for the whole base coat, 2-3 coats, top coat, wait for it to dry, etc. thing. So I applied three coats of La Paz-itively Hot Matte and they dried nearly instantly. Ahhhhhh, one reason to love mattes.

Unlike the other OPI mattes, La Paz-itively Hot is actually a matte shimmer. I took some pictures from the side to make sure you can see the shimmer. This is a really hot color for summer, a hot pink that leans a little red at times. These pictures are color accurate- just look at that brightness! This is a great option for those 95 degree summer days where you barely want to move and need some fast nail color. This color would also look amazing with a shiny top coat! I wanted to wear it matte this time, but I may post a pic with shiny top coat later on.

On a side note, how sick would this color be as a Suede??? Am I the only one who constantly wishes that OPI would release more Suedes???

What a pretty colour! I'm not the hugest fan of matte polishes, but I really like how this one looks. :)

It's just so nice and bright and cheery, right Cara? Not to mention good for when you're a lazy bum, like I am right now LOL.

I agree, they need suede's for summer!

how does this look when you apply topcoat? does it look just like the regular la-pazitively hot?

Jackie S.- I think we should all write a petition to OPI for summer suedes! OK... let's imagine here... Rainforest Suede.... how unbelievable would that be?

Liz Dubya- check out my post about this with a topcoat. It looks HOT!

Riechan- me too!!
