OPI Infinite Shine : Russian Navy
Hey there everyone! Hope you are having a nice day, I am in for a wet one because we are now officially getting "Tropical Storm" Julia! Should be an interesting few hours for sure. Today I will sharing another polish I received from OPI as part of the PreenMeVIP program!
Here we have 2 coats of Russian Navy which is a deep shimmery navy with a hint of purple. If you are a fan of dark polishes yet your don't want something super dark like pure black this may be a good answer! Formula wise it was perfect and I had no issues what so ever! I was very impressed with the formula.
If you missed yesterdays post here is my explanation about this polish being different compared to your "regular polish".
In the world of polish right now there are 3 types of polishes that you hear about. Regular polish, gel polish and hybrid polish. Now you may be think hybrid polish? Whaaaattt? Well it's a real thing I promise. It's basically regular nail polish how ever they come more as a "system" with a specific base and top, and you use them all within the same company. Most companies advertise that the manicure will last with no chips up to 10-14 days. The day number depends on the brand. Now you may be wondering where do I find these hybrid polishes and how come I haven't seen them. The answer to that is you probably have seen them and you can find them everywhere! The reason you probably have realized it is that every brand seems to have a different name for them. China Glaze has Ever Glaze, Essie has Gel Couture, OPI is Infinite Shine and so on. They like to compare them to gels saying they last like gels. Now if you are like me and you don't care for gels these hybrids may be a good answer. They are supposed to be long lasting, and they are applied just like regular polish and removed like regular polish, you just have to follow that brands "system"! That in my opinion seems like a do able thing if you want a longer lasting mani and if it truly is long lasting!
I have heard from a few others that they experienced staining issues with this color. I have not yet. That being said I am currently wearing it and do plan on removing it tonight so I will let you all know then. Its a dark color and ones like this usually do. They are are just more likely. I had no issues with yesterdays pink so I am hoping for the best. The pink removed WONDERFULLY! I was very impressed.
Overall I am very impressed with this polish and am pleased with it. Its very dark so not much of a nail art base for anything I have in mind so thats why there isn't any today! Thinking tomorrow I will swatch Bubble Bath! :) I have some art in mind for it. ;) On yesterdays swatch I mentioned I had drying issues... This one hasn't had any issues. It did pick up on the bristles of the top coat though. Not when going over just the nail but when I try to wrap the tips. So just something to remember/know. Well that's it for today! Hope y'all have enjoyed this post and maybe even learned something! I will see y'all back here tomorrow with another color.
