Matching set of OPI GelColor & Lacquer - Russian Navy. For a professional and long lasting manicure with a perfectly matched pedicure.
Russian Navy is my holy grail polish that I never get tired of. It is a deep navy that when you are in bright lights or the sun, you can actually see flecks of red, green, and purple; very cool. 2 coats and I am good to go. The first time I wore it, I made the mistake of not wearing a base coat, so when it was time to remove the polish, my nails were stained blue (NOT a good look), so I wear a base coat with this color now.I am extremely fair complected with cool undertones and I love how well Russian Navy works with my skin tone, so if you are a PPP, you will love it. Looks great on short nails too.
That's gonna be the last polish I bought from OPI, not because of this one in particular, but because of overall OPI performance on my nails. Pros: beautiful color something in between navy and dark purpledoesn't stain nails yellowdoesn't weaken my nails Cons:I can only wear it for two and half days before it start chipping (true for all OPI polishes) no matter how long do I let first coat to dry the second coat always grabs to it. I have to apply thicker layer than I want to make the surface even.Not for me. I do not have time to repaint my nails every other day and I prefer polishes that apply smoothly.
OPI polishes are my all time favorite...and out of all the colors I love, I must admit this is my absolute favorite. I can't recall how many times I have repurchased this color. I always get lots of compliments on it, and whenever I compliment someone's mani, this is what they are wearing. I wear it in their regular polish and also their soak off gel...with, of course the gel color's benefit of extra shine. This color is dark navy, but in the light, you can see small violet sparkles in the frosting. If you like to do unusual manis, this polish looks great, and makes an excellent base for that. Looks great on any length and shape of nail. I hope they NEVER discontinue this shade!!
