NOTD OPI Russian Navy

I decided to go with blue to celebrate the election. OPI’s Russian Navy is from the Fall/Winter 2007 Russian Collection.

Wait until you see this deep-sea indigo!

I bought it because I thought despite it saying navy on the bottle that it would actually be purple since that it what it looks like in the bottle. Yeah I know it looks blue in the pics but without flash it’s purple, I swear!!  So you can imagine my surprise when after the first application I saw blue. I was like WTH is this! I wasn’t fond of how it looked on me so off to the graveyard it went. Fast forward to now and I like it. What you see in the picture is a 3 coat application. I’m still searching for that perfect blue though…

I really like Russian Navy but I agree... There are better blues out there. OPI Darting a Royal is a very nice vibrant blue.

@ yummy - My ideal blue would be a true blue with no hints of anything. It seems everytime I get a blue it has hints of purple.

No parties for me. I think I may save my partying for the inuguration!

@ amina - Thanks!

@ b - Another one to add to my list!

@ alyssia - I'm check ink out!

@ gangstarr girl - Thanks!

@ a go bytch - Thanks for the tip, I'll check Urban Outfiters out!

@ jamila - I'll check that color out!

@ seymone - Thanks!
