I have Russian Navy and I LOVE. Can anyone tell me how Siberian Nights looks on nails?

Midnight in Moscow and Vodka & Caviar look divine as well. OPI has outdone itself!

Affair in Red Square is my favourite. It's replaced I'm Not Really A Waitress, as it is a more vibrant and true red compared to Waitress (which is more on the pink side). It applied beautifully with one coat, and an extra coat made even more fabulous. Added with a top coat, and I received so many compliments, from people describing it as the shade of a candy apple to "it looks like Christmas" My. Favourite.

I really want to give Russian Navy another chance but the application was so frustrating because I also experienced a gloopy polish.

Vodka and Caviar is a lovely color but looked a little bit orange on me sometimes. I suppose it was just my skin tone. Still very nice.

I'm also interested in trying Boris and Natasha and Catherine the Grape. Boris and Natasha looks similar to Lincoln Park After Dark. Can anybody offer suggestions to help distinguish the two?

^^I have both Boris & Natasha and Lincoln Park After Dark - Boris is more of an eggplant purple and Lincoln Park is a very dark burgundy...almost black.

Lincoln Park after Dark is actually a tad darker than Boris and Natasha, and a bit glossier. Boris and Natasha is more like a light creme version of LPAD <img>

I love Russian Navy- you must have gotten a bad one, because mine isn't gloopy at all but you can buy nail polish thinner to make it easier to apply

Thanks for the feedback iLoveCouture and nicky! I bought Boris and Natasha and Catherine the Grape today and can't wait to try them. I'm going to give my Russian Navy another chance and see if the application is any better. I am DETERMINED to love this color. It looks gorgeous in all the photos I have seen.

you're welcome! it's a very pretty colour, and has a lot of depth so don't give up on it.
i read that Poshe makes a great thinner, i found it online here for $6
http://www.haircareusa.com/poshe.htm

but you could probably pick up cheaper from a beauty supply store like Sally's and Walgreens in the US, not sure what's in Vancouver

I'm Wearing The Russian Navy Now!

I think the reason this is so hard to get is because it's similar to the Chanel navy that has a waiting list...already!

I finally got around to trying Serbian Nights (which a bought a couple of months ago) and I love it! Looks black in certain light and a beautiful purple in others.
