Feeling Blue

Thanks to Michelle of All Lacquered Up and Brit of Clumps Of Mascara, I have gotten back into the nail lacquer game.  I had been settling for soft pink tones (a la wedding day colors) or a pinkish purple shade that I wore ALL the time. Even my nail tech guy was bored with my color choices. LOL I decided that this season is a time for change, so I am wearing dark, bold colors for the fall and winter.

I have been quite enamored with NYX nail polishes.  To date I have 5 shades: (NYX Barbie Pink, Salsa,Vamp, Sapphire and Princess) (see pics below)

I had planned on wearing NYX Sapphire, but when I got to my local nail shop, I realized that I left the polish at home. Oh well, time to choose another shade.  I spotted OPI’s Russian Navy. I thought it was going to be a deep purple with a hint of red pearl.  The shade is a navy blue with flecks of reddish (pink) glitter….I can barely see the glitter. I can only see it in natural light with nail very close to my eye ball, which is a good thing. 🙂  Mama Maven gasped when she saw the color, “Why are you wearing black nail polish?”  When I told her it was blue, she did not seem too relieved.  Oh well, I am grown A woman! 😉

I like the OPI Russian Navy.  I will definitely contemplate wearing it again in the near future.

    Rafa / Achei melhorzinho que o primeiro, em termos de roteiro. E tava na cara que o hinzler (era esse o nome?) era o tron. E, apesar do Jeff digital ainda parecer personagem de videogame, e um passo interessante na direcao dos atores imortais ou ate criados. Achei um bom filme pipoca. Abraco!

    Natürlich wollen die Katzen dich nicht umbringen, denn wer würde sie dann zum Lachen bringen? Und du kannst sicher sein, das Argument mit dem dann fehlenden Futterautomaten haben sie natürlich bedacht, es sind doch Katzen!

    So if most Europeans are descended neither from the foragers nor from early farmers, perhaps they really are mostly descended from the Ind-aEuropeon cowboys?That is not very likely, as the few known pre-Neolithic samples from Russia belong only to haplogroup U.

    I have a love hate relationship with OPI’s Russian Navy. Since it looks purple in the bottle I was expecting purple when I applied. Yes I know it says navy, I have no idea what I was thinking. I’m all about dark polish so I am loving the darker NYX colors you got!

    This is one of my favs, sitting under my counter. Hmmm, was just thinking of polishing my nails in Smokin’ Havana tonight, may have to pull our the RN. :O)

    I tried Russian Navy last time I had a manicure and it just didn’t suit me at all and made my hands look even pastier than usual, but it looks gorrrgeous on you!

    Thanks for the love, ladies.

    @Brit and @Kia, if you like OPI, you will like NYX.

    @Marisol, I am looking for a dark green polish. I will find it!!

    OPI’s Russian Navy is a cult fav that I still don’t have! Ack! I need to get up on it. It looks lovely on you. And yes, I too used to be all over boring “safe” colors but now I am all over the place with my colors and designs. It’s fun! And I haven’t tried NYX’s polishes yet….adding them to my list!
