NOTD - OPI Russian Navy, Oldie but goodie!

Russian Navy is another OPI classic from the legendary "Russian Collection" of Fall 2007.
The whole collection is amazing but this deep navy with subtle shimmer is especially gorgeous!


OPI Russian Navy




The purple and red shimmer is very subtle and elegant.
Under direct sunlight, it is stunningly beautiful and multi-dimensional.
It even looks like an electric blue as you see in the second pic,
I would say this color is quite a cameleon. ;p

I am not so crazy about the formula nor the brush, but I know I would buy another bottle when it's time.
If you are into dark colors, be sure to have this in your polish wardrobe. ;)


Have a great weekend, everyone! :D

  8. This looks like China Glaze Let's Groove (also blue/purple depending on the light)! It's a beauty. Happy weekend Lena!

  9. hope you are enjoying your weekend, Sunny! :)
    let's groove is more purple compared to russian navy, i think.

  11. ah that is a dilema. OPI polishes are nice, but i don't think you need to pay international shipping or hyped price...
    i guess you are like me!
    last year i gave out about 60 polishes to friends and family, i still have about 100. lol

  20. Definitely one of my must-have polishes from OPI. I also like Chanel Blue Satin for a straight-up creamy blue that shimmers in sunlight.

    haha thank you so much for your comment! :) makes me happy to read! i love your blog & i enjoy coming here every time! you're inspiring in the beauty blogging way (and let me tell you that i'm totally failing in all the beauty areas... even painting my nails is a hard competition sometimes :P).
    i like both colours but i think that blue is the more striking one while the purple is more elegant. arrr they are amazing!!!
