Classic Monday "Russian Navy" Review

Russian Navy is described as "Wait until you see this deep-sea indigo" by OPI.

Russian Navy was originally released as part of the 2007 Russian Collection. Colour wise it's gorgeous. A beautiful navy blue with red microshimmer mixed in. Amazing! I bought this colour thinking it was OPI Ink because of how purple the microshimmer made it look in the bottle. I was super shocked when it come out blue but feel instantly in love with it. From far away it looks like an inky navy blue, close up you can just see a hint of the microshimmer adding a nice rich detail to the colour.

All A-Bordeaux The Sled! was originally realeased as part of the 2009 Holiday Wishes Collection. Due to the colour not being apart of the core collection, I'm not able to offer the official OPI description.

Las Vegas is my absolute favorite vacation destination. So I thought I would try and incorporate it into some nail art. However, I'm not that creative so I best I could come up with is dice.  It's quick easy and super cute!

Classic Monday "A-Rose at Dawn...Broke by Noon"

A-Rose at Dawn...Broke by Noon is described as "A gleaming , gambling, rambling rose" by OPI.

A-Rose at Dawn...Broke by Noon  was originally released in 2003 as part of the Las Vegas Collection by OPI. This polish is a cool toned medium metallic frosted rose colour. The colour screams 1980's.  I haven't seen a colour this frosted since grade school.

Serena Williams Glam Slam Collection "Your Royal Shine-Ness" Review

Your Royal Shine-ness was released as part of a two pack which also included OPI Servin Up Skarkle as part of the Serena Williams Glam Slam Collection.

I really like how OPI released each 2 pack in conjunction with a major tennis tournament. Your Royal Shine-ness was released during Wimbledon.

Go Goth Collection "Nevermore" Review

Nevermore was part of four mini collection called Go Goth released for Halloween 2010. 

Nevermore is a beautiful shimmery purple/blue duochrome colour. I don't have OPI Ink to compare  but I'm pretty sure Nevermore is the same formula. I love this colour, I wore it for a solid week and couldn't stop staring at my nails. They looked soo good.  This is a fantastic year round fun colour.

Classic Monday "Midnight In Moscow" Review

Midnight In Moscow is described as "Charcoal with a hint of maroon glimmer." by OPI.

Midnight In Moscow was originally released as part of the 2007 Russian Collection. I can vividly remember looking at the ad campaign for this collection and thinking I really want that colour. Of course that was before my OPI obsession kicked into full gear so let's fast forward to 2011 when I finally got my hands on this colour.
