OPI Nail Lacquer in My Private Jet

May 15, 2010
By

I love this nail lacquer so much that I finished one and bought another. More complex than Mad As A Hatter and less glittery, the holographic shimmer is a rainbow in a bottle. The black-brown base is quite special too, offsetting the beautiful prismatic sparkles.

A second version of it was produced after the first run but somehow the later batch never matched the original. The Polish Addict has a great My Private Jet comparison post regarding this.

I’m no nail lacquer connoisseur but My Private Jet is probably the most beautiful nail varnish OPI has ever produced. This holo nail polish is truly ♥ x ♥!

    Hi Mag
    I lurve my private jet too, and it’s one of the few nail polish among my huge stash I had repurchased. It is not stark harsh black, not crazy glittery and just so interesting and unique.

    Hey Jessy, I felt exactly the same way about the subsequent batch of My Private Jet! I was so upset that they changed the formula. In fact these days it’s so hard to find beautiful holographic polishes. There are some other brands that have also changed there formula after the first batch. In fact the whole range from the OPI designer series is no longer the same.

      Hi Esther,

      It happens with cosmetics too, unfortunately. I have two pieces of certain eyeshadows but they look different because they come from different batches. I wonder why the formula can’t be consistent…

    Yes I know. It’s either that, or they’ll remove a fantastic product from the market completely. Well, at least you have the original My Private Jet. I really regretted not getting a bottle after the formula changed. Anyway here’s to more beautiful products and better formulas that cosmetic and nail polish companies would come up with in the future. Hopfully.

      Hi Esther,

      Exactly! I’m thinking of MAC Blot Powder (Loose) as I type. It’s an excellent loose powder and many makeup artists love it. I don’t know why they’d discontinue such a great product. You could try eBay for the original MPJ? :)

    Yes! It’s my favorite product too, I only have a tiny amount left. Glad people understand how I feel. Unfortunately cosmetic companies don’t seem to :/

    Perhaps the one from the studio fix range can be a good alternative. I haven’t tried it personally yet though. Have you?

      Hi Esther,

      I’m currently trying out a few loose powders from other brands; some are gossamer-soft, while some are excellent over foundations. I still miss Blot Powder Loose, though, because it works so well with many base products. Thankfully, I have a back-up! :D

      Oh, do you mean the Select Sheer range? It’s functional but I don’t like it as much as Blot Powder Loose. :P
