Swatch - OPI's My Private Jet

Yes ladies... My Private Jet... HOLO! *angels singing*

I never thought I would have this polish in my collection. Most of us already know the controversy regarding this color. If not, here is a brief recap: The original My Private Jet was a holographic. OPI discontinued the color but then brought it back... but they never made it like the original and that is why there are 3 or 4 versions of My Private Jet rolling around the earth.

The Lacquerista had a giveaway a while back for the original/holo version of My Private Jet. Of course I entered the giveaway right away! I seriously never thought I would win. So many other people had entered too. What were the odds... but then I got an email telling me I won. I was like a kid on Christmas morning! Imagine me when it actually arrived in the mail. My poor mailman... I stalked him for days waiting for it to arrive. Thank you Lacquerista!

My Private Jet is a jelly-like smokey black full of holographic glitter. It's like a rainbow over a black sky. (How awesome would that be in real like? Yeah, I'm a little twisted.) The only downside to this amazing polish is how sheer it is. It took 4 coats for full coverage. Other bloggers have suggested putting a black base coat first and then My Private Jet over it so you don't waste so much of it. I haven't tried that yet. This swatch was done without a base coat and without a top coat. I think this is one of those colors that you have to see in person to truly appreciate how awesome it is. You can see the holo in my pictures but I still think that it doesn't fully capture how amazing it is.


On a side note, Blogger has been driving us crazy! Has anyone else had problems scheduling posts? That option hasn't been very reliable for us lately. Posts have been appearing out of schedule or not appearing at all. I had a post prepared and scheduled for yesterday morning and it never appeared!

Anyways... Happy Polishing!

The first bottle of MPJ I grabbed a year or so ago ended up being the brown version with subtle holo. I actually LOVE that color. Within a month of buying that one I was digging through the rack at the same store and saw one last bottle of MPJ and I swear it glowed, there were angels singing, trumpets blaring, I think it had a halo even. I don't know how I managed to stumble across the holo version but I was super happy to add it to the collection :)

I just picked up the regular My Private Jet version at Ulta. I then proceeded to Sally Beauty to purchase Northern Lights Hologram Topcoat and viola! OPI MPJ Holo!! I love this topcoat!! Plus the fact that I can use it with other polishes.
