You Don't Know Jacques

You Don't Know Jacques was a bit of a suprise to me when I put it on ... I was expecting a lighter tauper. YDKJ is actually a pretty dark chocolate-y taupe-y color. It's pretty hot too. :) You'll notice that my index finger is hiding in this picture ... that is because my Seche Vite died on me (really truly died this time ... no thinner will ever make it come back to life) in the middle of application. But new Seche has been bought and so rest assured that all four fingers will be flaunting their lovely polish in my next post. :)
YDKJ is from OPI's French collection of last Fall. I used 3 coats as it was a bit streaky. My brush was also a teeny bit wonky ... a couple of hairs were sticking out crazily on the sides, making application a little difficult. But it wasn't a huge deal. My Seche dying was a huge deal. haha! It's very traumatic for your holy grail top coat to just die on you like that in the middle of application! Ok, I'm rambling. I'm going to stop typing now!
p.s. Speaking of OPI, who's excited for their Fall 2009 collection? Have y'all seen the previews? There is a dark green! NOW I'm really going to stop typing. :)


  1. This is in my top ten of all time - love this colour and can't wait til it gets to the autumn again here in the UK so I can get it out again.

    Such a shame about the Seche - glad you've restocked! I couldn't live without mine!

  2. This is also a favorite of mine. Looks nice on you. I've been thinning my Seche Vite each time I use it. You have to use their brand of thinner. Otherwise it just doesn't thin out. I have a bottle of Poshe to try next.

  3. I'm super stoked for that dark green OPI! It's about freakin' time!

  4. Helen - It IS is very very cool color. I don't discriminate about seasons though ... if I feel like wearing a dark color in the summer, I'll wear it, and vice versa. ;)
    Lucy - That's an interesting idea, to thin it every time you use it. I'll have to try that!
    Asian Girl - I know! I'm very sick of OPI's usual boring colors.
