OPI - You Don't Know Jacques


Hi everyone :) For today I have a swatch of OPI You Don't Know Jacques. A typical taupe that has been so popular in the past year. This fall you still come across taupes in many fall collections, though the attention goes more to the dusty greens and purples now. Nonetheless I wanted to show you You Don't Know Jacques. I bought it as one of my first taupes, or 'dirty colors' as I would've called them back then, haha. It was when I was just starting to get into 'nailworld' and I wasn't used to unusual colors like taupes yet. But they've grown on me and now I like them :)
You Don't Know Jacques is a darker, cool-toned kind of taupe, a very calm en elegant color. I wish the formula could've been more opaque, so I wouldn't have to apply three coats for full covergage, but the application was pretty okay so in the end it wasn't that bad. Thanks for reading!
