5 Gorgeous Navy Blue Nail Lacquers

Reader Minh Vy asked for more “5 Ways” posts for polishes (by color), and I thought we’d do one on navy blues.

What’s your favorite navy blue polish?

  3. Hi Christine, since you’ve done this awesome 5 nail lacquers post. Can I request for 5 “mint” colored nail lacquers? I like Essie Turquoise & Caicos and wondering if there are other similar options. Thank you in advance :))

  4. That Lippmann polish just made my list! <3

  5. Scientific Housewife

    My fav is OPI Russian Navy

  6. These are beautiful, especially the Deborah Lippman one!

    One of my favourite Navy polishes is OPI’s Russian Navy. It’s perfect!

    Mmmm, Across the Universe is totally the favorite in my collection. So gorgeous.

  8. These are all gorgeous. I actually don’t own any of these in particular, but several near dups that I love. OPI: Yoga-Ta Get This Blue, Misa: A Sin Worth Committing, ChG: Up all Night, and Bermuda Breakaway are just a few of the Navy Blue polishes I own and love.

    Haha – awesome!! I was in the mood for navy blue today and I’m sitting here with night sparkle drying!

  12. Nice! I just bought CG First Mate but have yet to use it. I’m not sure how well I’ll like it. I tend to go for more metallic, deep blues. Like RBL Under the Stars! It will be mine depending on which polishes Ji brings back – if it’s one I want, I’ll be placing an order & RBL Under the Stars will somehow make her way in my cart too (as well as a back-up of Iconoclast!). :D Speaking of blue polishes, I just ordered LMdB in Nobile Passion (I know there are name discrepancies, but the one I ordered is the deep blue shade).

    My fave navy blue is Dior Bond Street. I have yet to come across a navy blue I don’t like. It’s my BF’s favorite color!

    Across the Universe is so gorgeous I got a backup bottle. I recently purchased one of the drugstore Essie’s in a shade called Dive Bar. Lovely dark blue. Have to be honest, I have the RBL and it doesn’t look nearly as shimmery on me, like I have to put my nails to someone’s face so they can see it.

  22. Lyss

    MAC’s WW Spirit of Truth is also a great navy blue nail polish.

  23. Kendra

    Just found your site and love it. If you don’t mind my asking, though, why don’t you paint your entire nail?

  24. Debbie

    I love Estee Lauder Blue Dahlia polish!

  25. My favorite is Phalic from Ilamasqua

  26. z

    how do you get such nice and smooth finish! what top coat is that that you used?

  27. Saffy

    I need #2. That is gorgeous!

  28. I loooooooove love love love love navy blue, shimmery polishes. Always have. One of my first polish obsessions. Right now I’m digging Zoya’s Ibiza, although the staining requires me to apply a white polish afterward. @_@
