A navy for all seasons - Orly La Playa

My delving into Orly continues! This time with La Playa - a dark blue creme that manages to never look black - a feat if there ever was one!

Somehow works in summer - sort of nautical themed? - as well as in winter thanks to the deep, bold colour. Since the weather can't seem to decide whether it's summer or not right now, this seems rather apropos! I'm very happy to add this to my collection. I do love a good navy polish.

What's your favourite navy? Mine is probably Essie Midnight Cami.

Is this new? I can never keep track of Orly collections. Navy is one of my favorite polish colors overall, so I have a few favorites.

China Glaze Calypso Blue is my favorite navy creme - super dark and saturated, but never black, doesn't pull too purple or green.

I love Color Club Naughty-cal Navy - it's a gorgeous deep blue jelly, and one of the few Color Club polishes I've bought that I haven't regretted.

OPI Roadhouse Blues wins in the "dusty navy" category.

RBL Piu Mosso is a standout for me, with that amazing copper flash. IMO, RBLs aren't always worth the $, but that one is truly special.

And now I really MUST unearth Midnight Cami from my untried bin (or Midnight Tango, as mine is labeled). That and Russian Navy can compete for my favorite in the "navy shimmer" category :)

I am SO in love with this color!!! I must add it to my collection! It's a great "Transition" color and you did a wonder job showing it off! Thank you!

i just got china glaze 'man hunt' from the safari collection. it's a little on the thick side, but the color is awesome. :)

Beautiful! The closest thing to navy that I have is Essie No More Film (more of a dark blurple)...this is beautiful, though! Need to make another foray to Sally to see if they have it...I did just pick up a Nina Ultra Pro in Cobalt there that is STUNNING, though! Love me some blue polish! <3

@Grace - Definitely not new...but I can't honestly remember what collection it is from! Thanks for all of your recs! I love seeing what you love :) (and Midnight Cami and Russian Navy are my two fav navy shimmers as well!)

@Arlyn - Exactly! Transition colour :)

@jkeentch - That looks beautiful!

@Dennis/Stephanie - Aww I thought I had a fancy male doctor follower! lol! I love No More Film as is completely gorgeous!

@FedoraHarp - I'm not a Doctor Who fan, but you are so right!!

@Polished Marvels - So glad you like it!! Seems like Roadhouse Blues is a fav...maybe I should have kept that one....
