My Private Jet-- OPI Night Brights Collection 2007 (Blue Version)

As you may or may not know, there is a bit of controversy surrounding My Private Jet. In fact, this was the very first nail polish I ever bought with my own money way back in 2007. The original is my favorite polish I have ever owned, and so MPJ holds a special place in my heart.

But, I lost the poor thing! I moved 3 times and somewhere in the hustle and bussle I lost my bottle! I searched and searched for another but to no avail.

Then, 2 years later I found a bottle and bought it. When I got home, I noticed the color wasn't as bright as I had remembered, or as glittery.

In fact, OPI changed it's formula! (If you're looking for a dupe of the original, Color Club's Revvvolution is a good alternative). So today I present you with the bluish version. I have the brownish version, too, and soon I'll have the original. Oh, and sorry for the tipwear. It was finals when I swatched this so it took me a day or two before I took the photos.

Even though in the bottle this version looks blue, on the hand it looks brown. In fact, while out the dinner my friend asked me where I found such a fab brown. She couldn't even see the glitter.


Even better, that same friend is a pretty successful attorney and she said that she was going to pick up a bottle and wear it to work! So I'm declaring it work friendly and definitely un-gothy.


The formula was fine, this took three coats and left no VNL. It's just the right amount of thin but I have to admit, I miss the holo version.


Anyway, that's all I have for today! HAGS.
