NotD – Russian Navy Meets Glamour

Diagonals strike again. I’m still working my way through my recent TransDesign haul (plus a few other polished that remain untried) and my most recent colour choice is OPI Russian Navy. After I had applied it it occurred to me that it might look amazing paired with Colorama Glamour Effect. And a new combo was born.


Today’s manicure was created using these polishes:

  • NailTek Foundation II
  • OPI Russian Navy
  • Seche Vite
  • Maybelline Colorama Effects 5 Glamour Effect
  • LOOK by BIPA nail tattoo liner 1 silver (*scratches head* I don’t even have to look at the bottle any more)
  • Sally Hansen Diamond Shine


As I usually do, I started with a basic manicure: three coats of Russian Navy sandwiched between one coat each of NailTek Foundation II and Seche Vite.

Russian Navy is a dark blue polish with blue and purple shimmer. The opacity is great, I only applied a third coat by habit.
It applies smoothly and evenly, as I expected from my past experiences with OPI‘s formula and lovely wide brush. If you like dark, interesting blues you will want Russian Navy - either this version or the suede one.

This is Russian Navy in two coats without top coat:

And the next two photos show Russian Navy in three coats and sealed with Seche Vite. The first one was taken with flash, the second one without flash under a ‘natural spectrum’ light bulb:


Then I added two coats of Glamour Effect to roughly half of each nail.

And after I added a silver line between the two halves of my nails I sealed the manicure with Diamond Shine.

And another couple of photos with and without flash:

Requiescat in Pace.
