My Private Jet

This is one of the shades in my collection that often gets forgotten about. 

It became one of OPI's most famous shades a few years ago after Kim Kardashian admitted that it's her favourite nail shade.

A little controversy in the bloggosphere followed after OPI changed the formula to include less holographic shimmer, making it one of the most talked-about, hyped-up nail colours around.

All the hype aside, it is actually a gorgeous and really rather unusual colour which is perfect for Autumn and Winter: A deep grey-brown with a hint of holographic shimmer, it's the subtle, grown-up answer to holographic polish. It gives a lovely illusion of texture to the nails.

The formulation i have is the new (less holographic) one, and it applies beautifully. It's opaque in three coats and lasts an average amount of time on my nails (4-5 days with a base and top coat)

What do you think of My Private Jet?

  4. When I saw 'My Private Jet' I thought Fleur's shopping has gotten really out of control...I'm glad it's only a nail polish and it's a very pretty one!

  87. It kind of reminds of a nailpolish I picked up at Topshop not too long ago; A multiglitter polish in a kind of grey-ish green-brown base. Except the O.P.I polish seems to have more of silver-y glitter in it? They look slightly similar, either way. But still absolutely beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I really like this colour. I have been favoring greys and browns this season and this colour is the perfect combination of the two. My all time favorite OPI colour however is "I'm not really a waitress".
