I wanted to share with you my mani this week and it’s in one of my all time favorite polish colors… Lincoln Park After Dark. The perfect dark hue for all skin tones and all seasons, it’s not black but a really rich deep dark purple shade.

Lauded by everyone from Vogue to style icons including Olivia Palermo and Lauren Conrad, it’s also currently gracing many a manicure at New York Fashion Week. This is the perfect (and inexpensive) way to transition your style into fall. What are your thoughts on Lincoln Park After Dark? Have you tried this color before?

The Lincoln Park After Dark Mani – What You’ll Need:

Start-to-Finish Base Coat… the perfect all-in-one (you can use it for base coat and top coat). Apply one coat to nails.
OPI Nail Polish in Lincoln Park After Dark… after the base coat has dried, apply one coat of this gorgeous deep dark purple hue. Once this first coat is dry, apply a second coat.
RapiDry Quick Drying Top Coat… I absolutely looove this! It truly dries your nails fast and makes my polish last longer. Apply it as the finishing coat for high shine and to dry everything in moments!

Top Tip: To keep my manicure chip-free and glamorously glossy for longer, I top it up with a coat of RapiDry or Start-to-Finish every second day. I just do it before bed and if you use the RapiDry there’s no waiting around, it will be dry almost instantly!
