you may say i'm a dreamer,

(to quote Dinner for Schmucks)
but I'm not.
Because I found my life-long, impossible to find, super hardcore lemming!




OPI (original) My Private Jet
OMG, OMG, OMG! Am I the luckiest girl, or what? I found this is a small, super old beauty supply. I've been there before, with no findings, but this time.... it was a miracle. For those who don't know, My Private Jet has so many versions- this is the original, which OPI supposedly 'lost' the recipe for. The current MPJ is a poopy brownish gray with silver sparkle. Uh, no thanks. But this one? I'll take seconds!
This was 1 coat MPJ over 1 coat Orly matte Vinyl. I'm trying to ration!

I'm still in shock how lucky I got! Thanks for reading!

  1. Wow, this is absolutely a stunning colour!

    I didn't know there were different versions of MPJ, but "losing the recipe" for a polish seems odd :/

    Lucky find!

  12. Thanks so much everyone!!!
    Vanessa, I found it somewhere called LA Beauty Supply... no, they didn't have anymore. Being the selfish girl that I am, I would've bought up all they had!

  14. I'm so confused because it LOOKS like the original MPJ, but it is a green label, not a black label. So very, very strange.
