I have worn OPI for many, many years and have been disappointed only a few times. I adore this and just about any very dark OPI nail polish and rarely have I had any issue with chipping. Until now. Normally I get a bit of tip wear when wearing dark colors, Russian Navy, on my nails begins to chip on the pinky and index finger with a day. That said, I love the subtle shimmer this navy manifests and I love the way this looks against my fair skin. I don't care for the chipping and have yet to figure out what about this particular color/formula that is causing the issue. I will still wear this very classic elegant yet on trend midnight blue but will make sure I always have the bottle on me to touch up chips.

To be fair, I don't own this color but had my nails done at the salon. Very pretty deep dark blue with fine reddish sparkles in the light. Suits my fair pink toned skin well.

Stains, even with 2 layers of basecoat. Takes ages to dry. The color is quite sheer, so it needs three coats to get it looking even. I wasn't thrilled by the color. On my very fair yellow-undertoned skin, Russian Navy has a muted ashy feel that looks dull and boring. Maybe it suits pink-toned skin better? Anyway, if you're similar to me a vibrant navy blue like Essie Style Cartel looks richer and more exciting. Its a smooth creme finish with great pigmentation, almost a one-coater.

I bought Russian Navy some days ago, and I already knew it was going to be a great purchase. I was right: it is a blue based polish with super, super fine blue shimmer and bigger red shimmer, which gives it some interesting sparkle. The blue shimmer is so fine that the polish almost glows. I've noticed that, even if this blue based polish seems almost black when it's not hit by light, even in low lighting it doesn't look totally black, just because the blue shimmer gives it a diffused, glowing look. It is opaque in two coats and dries normally. It looks amazing with fair skin (but also with darker skintones of course).

I bought this and OPI Light My Sapphire around the same time and over the years, I reach for Light My Sapphire far more often. Both are deep, shimmery blues, but Russian Navy is a little bit lighter and more purple -- less versatile than the moodier, greyer LMS. Great staying power like most OPI polishes, however.$8.49 at Ulta.

I'm currently wearing this color and was just thinking about how much I love it! This is in my top 5 favorite opi polishes....and that's saying a lot since I am a nail technician and my salon uses primarily opi for regular polishes. I've gotten so many compliments over the years when wearing this shade... Usually the question is "what is that color?" It's the perfect deep navy and the shimmer only adds to the beauty!

I have been after this color for a while but did not want to spend 8.50 but let me tell you it's worth every penny. I got it on sale at Sally's for 2.50 Will definitely be replacing it even if I have to pay full price. This color is beautiful in some lights it looks blue and some purple. I literally can't stop looking at my nails I love love love it!

It's hard to pigeon-hole this color as a navy when it explodes into a rich, jewel toned indigo in the sun. Indoors, it's about as close to black as blue can get. Very work friendly if the lighting permits. I'm always a huge fan of dark blues and purples, especially ambiguous polishes like this one. They're really hard to stop gawking at. Ideally, I would probably want to find a near-dupe that's less shimmery, but that's not to say the blue and fushcia micro-glitter isn't to die for

This is one of my favorite polishes for the fall and winter time. It's a gorgeous deep dark color that looks different under different lighting. It's super opaque and there have been times when I could have pretty much gotten away with just doing one coat if I wanted to. With one coat it looks more like a deep navy but the second coat really brings out the purple color and makes it look like a deep violet-blue. In sunlight you can see magenta colored shimmer and it's just a really complex and unique color. Perfect for anyone who loves darker polish.

Waited to get this for far too long. I have never had so many people ask me what color this was before. It's a rich navy/purple that is pretty unique. It's just very intense and you cannot miss it when you see it.Purple, blue, fuschia, and berry seem to flash at you when you wear this. This is a complex color and I still don't have a dupe out of the 500+ polishes I own.
