OPI: Russian Navy, La Paz-itively Hot and Elephantastic Pink

I've been after these 3 shades for a while now (Elephantastic Pink, Russian Navy and La Paz-itively Hot) when I saw them for cheap (9.50 for Russian Navy and 10.50 for the other by OPI standards) on whilst I was picking up shampoo (25% off Kerastase..sweet). It would have been crazy to leave these behind! Elephantastic pink is kind of the perfect bright creme pink, Russian Navy is a shimmery Navy bluey/purple and La Paz-itively Hot is (unsurprisingly) a hot pink with a shot of lilac shimmer running through it. The pinks look similar here but are actually completely different:

Ya see?! These apply really well, no streaking and fast drying. They're also pretty much opaque in one coat but with two coats they're nicely glossy. I can't tell you how chip resistant these are because I'm still on my irritating OPI Nail Envy buzz (curse you, Everlasting polish) but I did a quick swatch of each (which I then had to remove and replace with the Nail Envy again. Sigh). Anyway, here they are:

Lovely. I think La Paz-itively Hot will be a great toenail shade, Russian Navy is a great Autumn/Winter colour, while Elephantastic Pink is a nice pop of brightness but is still wearable enough to compliment most outfits. And that's my justification for buying more nail polish all sorted :-)
