Orly Royal Navy

Amazing, AMAZING color. Just wow. it blows me away when I look at it. I've gotten tons of compliments on my nails since I've had it on, from females AND males. It distracts me at work, in class, while I'm driving...

Royal Navy is a blue almost-jelly with teal microshimmer. The shimmer is a nice surprise and really makes this color glow from within. It must have some neon pigment in it because it dries slightly matte. In the shade/indoors this looks navy. I really like that, it gives you more than one look. I used this with Nubar Foundation Base Coat and Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat. I've had it on for about a week and only have minor tipwear. Nothing noticeable if you aren't looking for it. Formula was good, a little on the thin side but nothing unmanageable. I used three coats, since it's more on the jelly side than a cream. You can kind of see my VNL in the pictures but it's really only noticeable in direct sunlight.

Overall, I'd say YOU NEED THIS POLISH!
