Here's one of my dark favourites, OPI My Private Jet:
I like dark polishes but I find black ones too hard and way too dark for me and my girlish style. I'm so pale that they make me a little bit too gothic-like... That's why I like this color: dark enough but not black. Indoors (upper picture) MPJ looks almost brownish grey (with holographic shimmer), but outdoors (lower picture) there's no brown, it actually looks like dark, bluish grey (with holographic shimmer). And as you can see the holographic shimmer is awesome! I used three coats in this picture. With two coats the color was great, but the shimmery effect wasn't so obvious so I added one more coat.
MPJ doesn't overtake the overwhelming OPI's Brand New Skates or Lumene's Beyond the Dark (Pimeän taa in Finnish) but it's definitely better than Dior's Black Sequins or OPI's Baby It's "Coal" Outside. I do like this, but I'm not in love with this.
How do you like My Private Jet?
