My Private Jet?

Pictured here is my all-time favorite polish... and the picture DOES NOT do this polish justice! This polish is actually a charcoal grey polish with tiny pink speckles in it and it's called My Private Jet by OPI. It actually looks like pink gunmetal... I LOVE this polish more than any other. But the other day, while viewing one of my favorite blogs, I notice that someone else's My Private Jet is a holo... WTH!!!

First of all, let me just note here that I DO, in fact, have a holo on my nails here. You can clearly see that the Konad image I stamped on my nails (image plate M7) is a holo while the backdrop of My Private Jet is just speckled. BTW, I did the Konadicure with China Glazes OMG... THE most fabulous holo EVER made and PERFECT for Konadicures!!! But this polish is NOT a holo. And while I certainly love my holos (as much as the next polish addict), the My Private Jet that I own IS NOT one of them and I adore this color above all other colors. Now, my dilemma: Which color is the accurate color? Is it the yummy pink speckled gun metal that I adore, or is it the dark holo that I saw blogged HERE? Either color is honestly unique, but my pink gun metal will be soooooo missed if it turns out the holo is the accurate color and I somehow got a fluke. WHY didn't I buy multiples when I had the chance!!!???!!! Seriously folks, this is a "sound the torpedoes" kind of moment for me!!!

I got the paper from Stampin Up. It has been retired now. I'm so sad because I love it! I bought 2 packs and I treasure it!

there are at least 4 versions known (or even more)

a dark chorcoral holo, a black holo, a brown with green/teal shimmer and a dull black one with only hints of holographic shimmer

yours seems to be another version, shame on you opi for making this confsion about this

Ok, here's the scoop on MPJ... MPJ was release as a LE in 2007 as a charcoal holo. It has since been re-released in about 60 billion other forms. There is a scattered "holo" (pssssh so not a real holo) a brownish based one, one with a teal flash, and apparently now you've discovered this one. (Which I must have now btw) I have the original, the brown w/ scattered holo bits, and I'm still hunting the teal flash one and now apparently this one... Finding the original holo is like finding a leprechaun and you'll pay thru the nose on ebay for it...

Amused Polish and Scandalous: I WISH I would have bought more than one bottle when I had the chance. I had no idea and I love MY version... DANG IT TWICE!!! Scandalous... if I find it (and now I'm definitely going to look) I'll let you know! :(
