Decided to go for a bit of a darker nail color this week. I tend to wear mostly pastel or brighter colors in the summer but for some reason I’ve had the urge to go darker. I was initially leaning towards a black polish but since I’m visiting my parents for the long weekend (and my mother hates black polish) this one would have to do. This is the re-formulated version of My Private Jet. I’ve heard that the original was much more holographic but had a terrible formulation. I don’t own the origional so unfortunately I can’t compare the two. This polish is smooth and easy to apply. I tend to apply 3 coats with all of my OPI polishes but you could probably get away with two
This is a shade that I half got for the name and half for the actual color. Although this polish is from the OPI Swiss collection of Fall 2010, the name makes me think of William Shakespeare; both in his literal name and the slight poetical whimsy of the of the polish moniker.
I bought this polish since it looked to be that similar dark eggplant shade of lacquers such as OPI’s Lincoln Park at Midnight but with a name I much preferred. The polish itself is a deep vampy purple, however I found it to lean more of a brown toned purple. The formulation was great and boy is this polish chip resistant! When paired with my favourite Revlon Colorstay top coat, my nails were still chip free an entire week later!
