OPI - You Don't Know Jacques Suede


OPI You Don't Know Jacques Suede wasn't a polish I immediately liked. But it had more to do with the color than the finish. Taupe colored nail polish was something I'd never seen before a couple of years ago, but it became very popular over the years and now every brand and even drugstores have at least one taupe polish in their collection. Since I discovered the regular version of You Don't Know Jacques, I started to appreciate taupes and quickly began looking for the Suede version, I absolutely love the grainy surface! And here it is :) I used two coats. The formula was okay to work with, it dries fast, but not too fast in my opinion. So you don't have to hurry to apply it neatly and when you're done it's dry before you know it. What do you think about it?

  1. That's on my WL as well, the suede finish. The regular is more dupeable, I guess.

  2. I love these mattes. I just did lightning bolt nails inspired by your good self in OPI La-Pasitively Hot Matte and Wokka Wokka. They were okay for a first attempt and my right hand is better surprisingly but perhaps as I'd got the hang of it after the right one! Still not ecstatic by my work (little miss perfectionist moi) but practice makes perfect and I plan to do glitter lightning bolts on a friend tomorrow....

  3. I started out liking this in matte when it came out in that - but of late I have put clear top to shine it up - it's totally different than the same shade non matte - all these wonderful colors show up and gleam back at me when I use a clear topper over this matte as well as the couple other mattes I have.

  10. I love the Suede YDKJ but normally I'd like my taupes to be more purple leaning. The regular version of this one is too brown for my liking!

  14. Thank you everyone for sharing your thoughts :)

    @AmberdeBamber: Ja hè? ^^ Hij is alleen niet meer verkrijgbaar (in winkels) helaas. Je vindt 'm af en toe nog wel op Ebay vanaf ongeveer 10 euro uit m'n hoofd.
