OPI You Don’t Know Jacques!
Here’s yet another OPI from my last haul, from the France collection again: OPI You Don’t Know Jacques!.
When I first saw swatches of this one, I didn’t like it at all. A dishwater-brown creme? Ugh. But then I started liking cremes more and more, and now it’s one of my favorite finishes. And then I realized how cool and complex this color actually is. I’ve seen it described as mushroom, taupe, greyish brown, and I think that it also leans a bit purple in some lights.
I think it’s really beautiful, and also work appropriate for those of you who need that. These types of dusty, muddy, greyed-out colors are also really in fashion right now, just look at one of Chanel’s new colors for spring 2010, Particulière.
The formula is every bit as wonderful as Parlez-Vous OPI?, so I’ll just leave it at that. I’m wearing two thin coats.
Do you like Jacques, or do you still think it’s dishwater?
