OPI changed the name "Black Onyx" to "Lady in Black" a few years ago. I always had it but never in matt. The matt colours were in the Suede collection.

Could you not just use the Lady in black colour and then use a matt polish over the top? xx

I have OPI Gelcolor in Black Onyx which I love. You can always purchase a matte top coat, Essie makes a good one. You can a achieve a matte look with gel polish too. Just apply your base, cure. Apply 2 coats of color, curing in between each coat, apply top coat and cure. Repeat top coat and cure. Remove sticky layer and file the top with a white buffing block. There you have your matte finish. Accent the matte by doing art in top coat, smooth and shiny!
