OPI Nail Lacquer in Russian Navy Review


OPI Nail Lacquer in Russian Navy Review

When I received my Vellvette box last month, I was jumping with joy because it contained a particular brand which I have always wanted to buy but could never really bring myself to, because the price was quite high. However, when I saw that they had sent me Russian Navy from OPI, I was literally doing the crazy happy dance that wild women generally do when they see a good bargain at sight. I got the fun sized bottle containing about 3.75 ml. and I was really glad that I had had the foresight to subscribe for the box for 3 months.

The bottle is shaped exactly like a big OPI nail polish, only it’s a miniature size. I love the brush that comes with it, a long one which ensures I have full control over my fingers while applying the nail paint. The full sized bottle is around 520/- for 15 ml. so along with the Lush and the Clinique product I received, I guess this is a good bargain.

Though the appearance of this color is dark blue bordering on the violet, in reality the color is not as it is perfectly shiny navy blue with shimmers of violet that is really difficult to discern unless you are watching pretty closely. The color is pretty excellent for evening wear and I like using it with nude tips. It dries up within a couple of minute, which is another score for me.

One coat gives the color a slightly streaky look, while two gives it the opacity it needs. I like coating the nails twice, and then tipping them off with something nude for a really nice looking manicure. The color lasts me for about 2-3 days before starting to chip off, and yes, this DOES chip and does not last me more than 3-4 days on my fingers.

I have the pictures of chipped nail polish after 2 days. You can see the violet shimmers in the otherwise blue nail polish.

So yes, I guess, until I REALLY like a color or something, I will not be buying from OPI. However, they do have a mini-pack collection for around 1000 rupees or so (as per Vellvette)… so… well… who knows what future might bring?
