OPI Russian Navy Suede

Here is OPI Russian Navy Suede NN R54 swatched with two coats. I didn't really like the formula because it dried relatively fast making it difficult to work with, but this is typical of all matte polishes so...I guess I just don't like matte formulas in general. Teeheehee!

  1. Glad to see I'm not the only one who's not feeling the love of matte polishes!

  3. Although I have not tried them, I am not a lover of Matte polishes either, I am definitely a shiny girl. I love Russian Navy though, looks beautiful and so do your nails Wan! :)

  4. By the pics I'm sold to this polish - even if you say it's hard to apply, 'cos your pics are strikingly beautiful :D

  5. It's so beautiful with top coat! Does it sparkle under the "normal" light (indoors)?:) My DS OPI Fantasy seems to be black when indoors. And Russian Navy seems to be kind of close to it. What do you think?

  9. This polish is so stunning, both with and without topcoat! Your nails also look great with darker colors. :)

  10. Looks gorgeous on you. I love the suedes finish. The best thing is that you can wear it with a topcoat.

  11. Papaya Bunny- I love matte polishes, I just don't like their formulas. But if I were to choose between matte or shiny. I'll choose shiny. : D

    gildedangel- Me too! But it looks edgier without it. I love how it's so versatile!

  12. bowsnhearts- I love how the top coat makes it so much more sparkly! =D

    Danielle- Me too! I'm a shiny girl too, but I love how matte makes the overall look so much more edgy. Too bad they chip so fast though. :(

    Doo- Aww, thank you so much! It's actually not that hard to apply compared to other mattes I heard. Please do give it a try, it's a gorgeous polish! : )

    HeavenNRJ- Yes I believe it still kinda sparkles under normal light but of course not as much as under the full blasting sun. Lol! I believe DS Fantasy is a tad bit darker than Russian Navy if I remember correctly. If you like, I swatch the two for you when I return home in two weeks. : )

    Polish Hoarder- I agree! I love how it looks with and without topcoat! I think OPI did an amazing job with this collection. All the colours look so pretty! : )

    Pinkginger- I've been lemming those Zoyas for the longest time! Too bad I can't find them anywhere in Vancouver. :(

    Fe- Thank you so much! I really hope to post more often too, but it has been raining 24/7 here in Vancouver. This totally prevents me from going outside to swatch and take pictures. Technically, my blog is solar powered. LOL! I promise I'll post more often when spring hits! :D

    Solveig- Thank you! I just realized this was the first dark nail polish that I ever posted. I should start swatching my vampies! Lol!

    Lucy- Me too! I love the suedes finish too! I adore the entire collection even I only own three of them. XD
