OPI Russian Navy Suede

Hi guys! Hope you're having a great weekend so far! I'm not doing much this weekend, I've managed to catch a cold that's been going around the office at work so I'll probably just relax and try to sleep away the sickness. Today I have an oldie but a goodie for ya, it's OPI Russian Navy Suede! I'm pretty sure this is long discontinued and probably not easy to find but it's one of my favorites so I hope you don't mind me posting it too much!

Back when I fish started getting into polish OPI was putting out their Suede collections. Suede's are shimmery matte shades, OPI made a few of their classic polishes into them. Back then I had no idea how awesome they were so I think this was the only one I got, I'm kicking myself for that now! I busted this beauty out a couple months ago when I couldn't decide what to wear and I keep forgetting to post it...until now! Pretty much everything except for the wear time (it sucks) is perfect. The color, formula etc. I used 2 coats for the photos below! Both are without top coat and in natural sunlight.

    This is so pretty! You should try putting topcoat over it and then another layer of colour if you want to keep it on longer, that's what I do with my matte/suede polishes.

  3. Any idea how close Avon Blue Royale from their suede collection is to this? I have that and its my in a hurry go-to when wearing jeans ( same issues with wear apparently though).

  5. This is such a gorgeous polish and I hope you'll manage to find other Suedes somehow. I was fortunate enough to find entire collection only last autumn at a severely reduced price, but I only got Russian Navy. I want to kick myself for failing to buy Lincoln Park After Dark. Others not so much.
    Get well soon.

  14. Aaaah your pictures are so perfect! I am proud to own all Suedes though I rarely ever wear them, and if I do I always topcoat them because of the wear time.
