Birchbox Review - OPI Mini Nail Lacquer in Russian Navy



How beautiful is this OPI Nail Lacquer which I received in my Birchbox a few days ago?! I am completely mesmerised by it. I can't figure out how it looks so purple in the bottle and so blue on the nails. I almost considered the fact that they'd put the wrong nail polish in a purple coloured bottle. Completely flummoxed!

Regardless, it a really pretty navy with some purple shimmer undertones too it. The first coat you apply is a translucent light navy colour. After you've applied the second coat, it looks more like what is represented in the bottle. I couldn't quite believe the transformation.

As per usual, the polish is super glossy and an absolute joy to apply. I really can't praise it enough. I know that there were some variations between boxes and other bloggers received a red polish. Personally I am overjoyed that I got this shade as it is something completely new to add to my collection. Plus it's a handy travel size for doing touch-ups (if necessary) on the go!
