    Can someone tell me which is a better frame for the polished look? Do they both look the same polish wise and just once is a little more transparent? One of the styles has the lens I want in Black Ink but I also want that polished black look.

    Is the polished black more glossy looking than black ink?

    Thanks

    I think both are just as glossy. But i like the look of a black ink frame better.

    Polished is slightly more polished than the black ink, but black ink is slightly more resistant to surface scratching.

    I do not enjoy or own polished black O-Matter frames. Very few of my pairs are polished in any way.

    I do, however, have a Black Ink frame. And I wear it.

    I love the look of Black Ink personally. Both are pretty much identical but a much closer look Black ink is a little different.

    If you want a glossy frame but hate scratches, get the black ink. They are both glossy but I like black ink better.

    Black ink hands down. Polished black by itself is very boring.

    I don't know if it's a color option for the style you're looking at, but there is also Jet Black, which is very similar to Polished Black.
