YOU DONT KNOW JACQUES

I finally stopped looking at everyone else's pics of this and ordered me a bottle. My first thought as soon as I put it on - this is it??? So I painted my toe nails, and the color has grown on me. Today I decided to paint my nails and see how I like it on my hands now that the color has grown on me. It's taking a little bit of getting used to. The color is unique, for sure, but it really isn't a "pretty" color, am I the only one who thinks this? Plus it seems to bring the "red" tones out in my skin, which I don't think looks really good with this color. I think this one might go on my toes alone, and skip putting it on my fingers. I think my mom is gonna like this one alot! I'm curious to see what she thinks about it, and to see how it looks on another person in person.

OPI - YOU DON'T KNOW JACQUES
So please tell me, am I the only one a little disappointed with this? Does anyone else think this color, despite it's uniqueness, is really sort of ugly?

Awww, sorry you don't like it!! This is one of my all time favorites, probably because it is so different and unique I guess.

I have to agree with you. I don't really like it either.

KATEE - Not that I don't like it, just don't think it looks really great on my hands, I like it on my feet though!

NESSA - I think color might be suited to darker skin tones. Thanks for the comment!

I hav YDKJ and i love it big time, it is a unique and elegant color but it is also a rather unusual color so it might take time to get used to it.

OLGA - I have left this on my fingers for almost a full 24 hours. It is growing on me, but I still think I will use this on my toes instead of my fingers. Of course I'm a glitter freak and this color has got to be the abosolute OPPOSITE of anything GLitter!! lol

i have a darker skin tone and i still disliked it. i tried it on today at a store to see if i'd change my mind; still didn't work. maybe i'm just a freak, i'm not big on the whole gray and green trend...except maybe for light dove grays and ChG Emerald Sparkle :D

THE ASIAN GIRL - I think it is just one of those weird colors, either love it or hate it. I just recently painted my moms finger nails with it, and it looked great on her. She was still a little undecided about it though :)
