One of the many incarnations of OPI My Private Jet


As many of you already know, there are about fifty thousand versions of OPI My Private Jet roaming the aisles of beauty stores and salons. I bought the original one way back when it was first released so I'm reasonably sure I got "The Good One": it's more sheer than anyone would want it to be, charcoal and has holo glitter. But I recently found "A Bad One" at a local beauty supply chain and I think I may like it better than The Good One. Apparently, the one I got has a shimmery charcoal base, scattered holo and teal flash. The teal flash is what wins me over. I really don't have another polish like this.

OPI My Private Jet (holo, teal flash version)




I tried hard to capture the teal flash in these photos but it's only really apparent in the bottle in the last picture. Really, this polish applied very smoothly (three coats are shown, could've passed with two) and all in all, I think it's more attractive and interesting to look at than the original MPJ which I think is just much too sheer.

...so I think I see the teal flash but that might just be sky in this video.

Can you please show a swatch of the original MPJ? I've been lemming it but evil-bay doesn't sell it anymore or the prices are ridiculously high

I think I have the teal version too. I personally like the teal, its gorgeous!

I think I have the best grey holo there is. And it's a third of OPI prices. Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm. It is fascinating. Excellent quality too. You really don't need MPJ. It's just a glitter polish....

I don't like this good vs bad version thing. I think The origional has it's good points to it but so do all of the later versions. Personally I prefer my CC Revvvolution. :)

I would've liked to seen them together. That way I could see the difference.

I wish I had MPJ orginal :( I LOVE holos...and sadly I don't own any yet...this is a lovely polish, but, it's not the Orignial. I will have to check out Diamond Cosmetics someone mentioned above!
I love your site btw! :)
