OPI 4 in the Morning

Today I have another polish to share with you from OPI's upcoming collection with Gwen Stefani! 4 in the Morning* ($10.95 CAD) is an interesting new polish since it does have a semi-matte satin finish. It's been quite a while since I've worn a matte polish, and this is one of the two matte-satin polishes in the Gwen Stefani collection.

"4 in the Morning features a new, semi-matte satin finish designed to be worn without top coat" - OPI

OPI's 4 in the Morning is a satin black polish that dries very quickly. I used two coats for this look, and while the formula was on the thinner side, it still built up nicely. I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of this finish, but that's just a personal preference. I did wear 4 in the Morning for two full days to see if the matte finish would grow on me, and it unfortunately hasn't. If you also aren't a fan of this finish, you could always layer a top coat or a glitter top coat over OPI's 4 in the Morning. If you wanted to see this shade with a top coat, please let me know in a comment! The shade of 4 in the Morning is quite interesting, almost like a pearly black with a hint of shimmer. 

Sorry for my red cuticles, my last polish left behind some staining!

I think that this new finish from OPI will appeal to a lot of people, but it just isn't my taste. OPI's limited edition collection with Gwen Stefani will be available in January 2014. Are you a fan of matte-satin finishes, or do you prefer a glossy look? What do you think about OPI's 4 in the Morning? :)


  1. The finish is really interesting! Thanks for sharing :)

    1. It's definitely different from most polishes!
