Orly Royal Navy (3 Ways!)

I've been on a blue kick lately. I just LOVE a good blue polish, and Orly Royal Navy fits that bill. It came out last summer (right?) and I had to have it. Royal blue jelly shot through with metallic green shimmer? Yes please! I pull this out pretty often. If you've never seen a swatch of this before (although I find it hard to believe, at this late date) you can click on my picture to enlarge it, the shimmer shows up quite nicely. I'm pleased that the color showed up accurately in my photos - lately blues haven't been faring as nicely but purples have done well, which is usually not the case.
Well, after I did this mani, I decided to slap some amazing flakies on it - bring in the second half! I used Nubar 2010 - I actually have both that AND Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure. They're close enough to be dupes for me, but I'm sure glad to have an extra bottle of flaky goodness. It looks amazing over Royal Navy.
What's better than flakies and royal blue jelly? MATTE flakies and royal blue jelly. I topped it all off with China Glaze Matte Magic.
Obviously, all photos in order of my descriptions.

Holy. That last photo just makes me want to do it all over again! Yup, I love this.
Weekends are just a nightmare for me lately, so I hadn't been able to post anything for a few days. In case anyone (hi, new followers!) were curious where I'd been for the last few days.
I did, however, see some really neat stuff. I saw a girl walking into a bar wearing an all black and white outfit, with white tights - and day glow yellow stripper heels. I LOVED it. Then I saw a guy in a Rite Aid parking lot carrying around a big, old school boom box. He was blasting P!nk's "Pretty". Yep. I was transported back in time!
Anyway, it's my day off, so I'm going to try to schedule some posts for the rest of the week. Hope everyone has a great night!


  1. Awesome! I love them all! Flakies look so great under a matte topcoat. :)
