Dammit, I'm so irritated! I checked the weather yesterday before I decided to do this post and it was supposed to be sunny all day. I woke up and it's overcast. The forecast still says it's supposed to be sunny all day. Lies. Lies! Anyway, yesterday my buddy Ange-Marie did a nice post on her blog Scandalously Polished about the different versions of OPI My Private Jet. I knew there were different versions, but I didn't know there were four of them. I thought there were only two! Anyway, her post was great and it completely inspired me to pull out my bottle of My Private Jet. I did my best to capture this polish. I used natural light, which wasn't too helpful, and also flash, which was a bit more helpful.
Ugh, I just wish the stupid forecast hadn't LIED TO ME ABOUT THE SUN. So here's my version of My Private Jet. I've apparently got the holo version. Where did I stumble across this evidently rare gem? Ulta. Yes, that's right. One day I went into Ulta when they were restocking the nail polish so there were boxes everywhere. I, of course, started to dig through them. I found a little box full of four My Private Jets. I took them all to the window to check and see if any of them were holographic. One of them was, and you're lookin' at it. I was surprised to find it, but I snatched it up.
Its provenance...let's see...I think it was part of the 2007 Night Brights collection. The other polish that was really popular from Night Brights was Ink, which is now part of the permanent collection. Maybe I should bust that one out too, because it's really, really stunning. I believe that the holographic version, the one I'm wearing on my nails above, is the original version. There are apparently three other versions floating around out there (see Ange's post). They all look nice, but I would of course choose the holo over the other three...because it's a god damn holo, and holos are awesome. Right?
I guess there has been a big to-do because OPI has denied the existence of different versions of this polish. That's just rubbish. Not only are there two different versions, there are four. Why a company would actively deny this, I do not know. It just seems silly. Do you have My Private Jet? Which version? I'd be interested to see how many people have the "original" holo...
Also, I'm feeling completely lackluster today. I was up until 5:30 and then my body wouldn't allow me to sleep past 11. Don't you hate it when that happens? :(
