O.P.I Russian Navy

Hello Darlings!!

  Today's post is a classic beauty. This color has quite a bit of age on it and it is a part of O.P.I's core collection. I don't remember exactly what drew me to buy this color because in "normal" light it really doesn't look like anything special. This is one of those colors that really comes to life in the Sun and like I said before it is just classic... I just recently wore this under O.P.I I Lilly Love You and the combination was just stunning. The funny thing is as I was applying this color I kept thinking to myself..." Why haven't I worn this more often?".

O.P.I Russian Navy
Russian Navy is a beautiful shade of deep Navy Blue shimmer. What really sets this shade of Navy apart  is the beautiful Magenta shimmer that peaks through the deep Navy base. The magenta shimmer is more evident in the bottle than it is on the nail but it gives this color the extra bit of depth that makes me love it so much. Like just about every other O.P.I this color has a great Two coat formula. Beauties like this one deserve more love! 

Thoughts on this shade?

  6. I love it when you find a color and wonder why you haven't used it more.

    I can see the little pink shimmer on the nail too. Looks pretty!

  8. FYI, you have a typo under the pic. It says Royal Navy instead of Russian Navy.

  9. Can China Glaze "Blue Year's Eve" be considered a dup of this? I know its more of a shimmer, but they look pretty similar. I rec'd "Blue Year's Eve" for Christmas and I love it! I painted my whole nail in it and dragged silver glitter down from the cuticle with clear top coat. It looked so sparkly and pretty!! This is pretty too! : )

  14. I love this color, but every time I see it on the shelf I pass for something else. Next time I don't think so, I can't put it off any longer, going to pick up a bottle!

  16. I love purple and this colour is just amazing! I guess I will have to go back and look at the colour much more closer than just scanning the shelves again.

    Thanks for the swatch!
