This is the first OPI Ive tried on my nails. The rest I hauled werent opaque enough to be used for a full mani. Before I received this Id thought I purchased the matte one, turns out its the normal one. Booo. Im not mad over it though because it still looks awesome to me. Because this is the first time Im trying out an OPI polish this will be a nail post and my first impressions.
I actually googled how to identify a fake/real OPI to see whether the one I received was authentic after all theres so many fakes floating around but turns out mines real. Thumbs up! It has the code printed on the side of the bottle at the bottom and a code on the brush lid. That means authentic right?
Ive heard a lot about OPI brushes being wide which makes nail painting much easier. I agree on that, this one was obviously the biggest brush Ive used. Maybe because of this that I felt it was a bit too square, nothing that I couldnt work with but I couldnt help but notice the tip just seemed so.. square. Other than that its slanted? Have no idea if mine was the weird one out of the batch but it wasnt even.
<strong>Russian navy</strong> is a deep navy colour with little pink shimmers. Very subtle shimmers that one the nails they disappear unless bright light brings them all out.
The formula is AMAZING. Best Ive tried. Each layer goes on very thin, one wouldve been opaque if you did a thick coat but I did two thin ones. I even changed the way I did my clean up to see if things were better. I usually clean up after I finish the whole mani but this time I did it after each layer. It was easier than fighter through the many layers in one go and made things look neater. One problem I had was the polish got stuck under my cuticle that even cleaning didnt help. Does that mean I needed to trim my cuticles?
I left them on for over a week because I was lazy; it lasted around four days as usual (due to work as well) and just took them off yesterday. Stained my nails a little, making them look dirty but I did get a few compliments.
What do you guys think of this colour? Do you own this polish or would you pick this one up?
