OPI... Russian Navy With MASH Stamping... Indy Polish Shop Links

You may have noticed that I updated the look of my banner and background to my blog. If anything looks out of whack please let me know...making changes to existing sites can be tricky sometimes. Thanks.

I also added a page to my blog menu titled "Indy Polish Shop Links". In my research I ran across a blog with a list and I ran with it on my blog too...I need the quick reference for when I feel like shopping! :D

If you have an Indie shop that is not listed please let me know and I will be happy to add it to the page. So on with today's mani...

I have been wanting to do a navy mani lately and since spring is here I figured I need to do it now before I get bit by all the new spring colors coming out.  So for today I used OPI Russian Navy and then added a couple accent nail by stamping with Sinful Color Snow Me White.

When I was researching for the best Navy color I can across several reviews that said this color was one of the best and I do love this color, but it absolutely shows some purple to it. I wanted a true navy and least the bottle I not it! I will continue to look for a true navy

Do you guys have a favorite Navy Polish?

For this manicure I applied the following:
  • Milani Smoothe Base Coat
  • OPI Russian Navy...2 coats
  • Sache Vite Top Coat...1 coat
  • Sinful Colors Snow Me White (For Stamping Color) 
  • Nail Plates Mash 41 & Mash 42
  • Sache Vite Top Coat...2 coats

Have a great weekend! : )


  1. I love the stamping, and Russian Navy looks fab on you!

    1. Thanks...I loving stamping. I did want to only do a couple accent nails so the navy stands out a bit more. Gland you like it! :)

  3. This is really good! I've never tried stamping, would you recommend the Mash plates? I've only really heard/seen in shops the Konad plates but cannot wait to start experimenting with stamping plates after I graduate :)

    1. Thank you... glad you like it! I love stamping! The beginning can be frustrating, but don't give up. It take a little practice to get good at it. You will love it!

      Yes, I would recommend Mash plates. I have tons of plates by different makers... Mash, Red Angel, Bundle Monster and Konad and have not had a problem with any of them. I get most of them from I think it is important to get down the technique before giving up on a brand of plates. Often times the problem is the technique... having said that it is possible to get a bad plate too!
