This is my first review ever on my first OPI nail polish:)

OPI Russian Navy Nail Polish Review

This week I have been wearing OPI Russian Navy. It’s a classic shade – a dark rich navy blue with tons of purple shimmer as shown in the bottle pic.


OPI Nail polish review

It looks little like black on nails as I have’nt been able to catch the shimmer on camera.

Bought it for Rs.400/- in mumbai at Beauty Centre along with lots of other stuff. The brush is thick, making it easy to apply. The polish just glides on smoothly; no streaks or lines. Used a base coat and applied 2 coats of the polish. It dries pretty quickly, even in such humid conditions (its been pouring in mumbai since friday). I would say I felt it dries faster than most of our Indian nail polishes, as this one dried in 10 mins flat while others take me atleast 15-20 mins

What I liked about OPI Nail Polish

  • Colour; absolutely gorgeous (I find it hard not to like blues/purples)
  • Texture & application (really smooth liquid and thick brush)

    • There is.. its called Russian Navy suede. Couldnt find it. There is a very limited range of OPI colors available. I actually went to buy some metallics, but couldnt find any good.

  4. This is such a fab colour !! I usually dont wear dark colors on hands..doesnt look very professional at work…but i would love this for my toes. !!!

  5. BTW Girls: this particular polish also works very good as a stamping polish and is a good alternate to konad. I sometimes find konad very restrictive in shades.

      • i have t same question actually..i did nail stamping 2nites earlier and the stamping wasnt too dark..but i thought it was coz i used a light shade on dark… 🙁

        • Most normal ones wont work as stamping polishes. They are too transparent. However if you have old ones, which have become thick, you can try. But like this one, there are certain polishes which are quite pigmented and opaque and will work as stamping. I go by the rule that: if one coat is opaque on your nails, it will work as a good stamping polish. try and let me know.

  6. Hey, Beautiful shade and beautiful pics!!! And yes, your hands and nails look really pretty 🙂 I’m gonna try the moisterizing routine now :inlove:
