Favorite New Polish: My Private Jet
Prior to FNO last Friday, I hopped into my car to get to a local salon to get my nails all gussied up for the event. The place I had originally wanted to go was literally down the street from my in-law’s house. When I got there, I discovered that they relocated, so I drove up Rainbow (a Las Vegas street) in a mad search for any available salon. I finally found a place and pulled an Elle from “Legally Blonde” (for those who have not seen the movie, she nearly causes an accident after locating a salon for a nail “emergency”, which ironically this was). Simplicity Salon is the name of my new favorite local Las Vegas salon. All the gals there were great and my nail technician, Trista, was particularly cool.
While there, I felt that I needed something sparkly yet understated. I also felt my inner-goth needed to be satisfied with something dark. I found something that actually combined the two in the best way possible. The color is called “My Private Jet” by OPI, a glittery metallic grey that looks even better on than in the bottle. I later discovered that there was some controversy with the color because it had undergone several incarnations (up to four different versions). From what I’ve seen and read, the original versions were brighter and had a holographic sheen to it. The later versions appear to be a little more toned down, which I happen to really like.
I also found out that Kim Kardashian asked for this color by name on her reality show. Well, that’s gotta count for something, right?
