I love wearing dark colors on my finger nails, and I’ve tried every shade of deep berry on the market. But this summer I was feeling like I needed a bit of a change. The dark reds were looking a little dull, and possibly dated, and it seems that all the 20 and 30 something girls are wearing them, too. I needed something new and grown up. I tried some of the new lavender and taupe shades and I like them on my toes but not my fingers.
Then I stumbled on OPI’s My Private Jet. It looks like a graphite hue in the bottle—with a slight undertone of burgundy or chocolate brown. Best of all it has a dusting of teeny tiny silver sparkle in it, which gives it a lively, glossy look once it’s on (if you’re doing dark for summer, at least make sure it’s shiny, I say!). I’m in love with this shade, so much so that I went out last night and bought four bottles to send to my four best girl friends.
