OPI Russian Navy Matte

Happy Saturday!! The weekend is finally here, and Christmas is less than a week away!!

I resisted pulling out another purple polish from my stash and so closed my eyes and randomly pulled out OPI Russian Navy Matte instead. I don't have the original to compare it to, but I can tell you it lacks the pretty shimmer the original has. As for most matte nail polish, this is a bit thicked and dried fairly quickly.

A real matte navy:

I thought it missed a little "umph" so proceeded to add a coat of Nfu Oh 50, a beautiful flaky polish.

There you go!!! Much better!!!! These flakies always make plain, boring nail polish so much more exciting!

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. I agree. Much better with Nfu Oh flakes! :)
    I just put Russian Navy on my toes this morning! The good stuff though. Not the matte.

  2. I love both looks. I have to buy the suedes and I need the flakes.

  3. Polish Hoarder - I still have to get the original one! It looks so pretty!
    Gildedangel - Isn't it so much better ith the flakies?!

    Lucy - The Suedes are beautiful! You should really get them!
