Mischo Beauty Extra: "You Dont' Know Jacques!" Nail Polish by OPI










I am deeply in love with OPI's "You Don't Know Jacques!". The pictures aren't the best this week because I took these while on the train heading back to DC from NYC last Friday. And yes, these are some of the pictures I uploaded to Twitter.

Some of you may remember the color I wore to Fashion Week- which I loved, but after touring the Creative Nail Design Studio and falling in love with their #6, from the upcoming Spring 2009 collection, I was on a mission to find a chic gray for my nails. "You Don't Know Jacques!", part of OPI's fall/winter 2008 collection, is actually a taupe (grayish-brown) and to my surprise looks very chic on my nails.

I fell in love with it instantly! My friend Andrea introduced me to Essie's "Good To Go" top coat- and seriously- it is the FASTEST drying top coat I've ever used! I tested it out in cab, while at Fashion Week heading to a show, and it dried instantly with incredible shine- no smudges! Where has this top coat been all my life?

I love the color and I'm a huge fan of the top coat! I'm also loving Sephora's OPI color in "Metro Chic" that's just 1/2shade lighter than "You Don't Know Jacques!" with just a smidge more of a purple tint to it.

I tried that color on at Ulta on me and it looked like murky pond water with my skin color.

But Diva-Love you are rocking it! lol!

To "Confessions of a Makeup Whore and Product": Oh- I just checked out "Metro Chic" and it's the only color sold out from the Sephora OPI collection. I must try it. Thanks for that! :)

To "Jamie @ Rural Glamour": Sorry to hear that!!! And thank you. :)

I'd probably return that Essie top coat- it definitely shouldn't be sticking like that!
