Last week I told you that I just needed to have that OPI polish that Michelle Willaims was wearing for Essence magazine. Many of you identified the color as You Don’t Know Jacques from the OPI French collection. So I knew that I would go right to my main nail polish spot. If there is a new OPI color, this guy has is but he DIDN'T have "You don’t know Jacques". He told me he hasn’t been able to get his hands on it, so the little "You don't know Jacques section was all labeled but completely empty. My heart sank as i pounded the pavement in search of other stores that sell OPI but to no avail. Then I went to this new Duane Read that opened and they had Brucci nail polish on sale for .74 (select shades only). I found a taupe color named Taupe Matters (picutred on right) and that was as close as I got to the color in the picture. I also purchased the brucci color Christopher Street (pictured below) this polish is nothing like the OPI color, I have no idea what I was thinking.
Then I decided to go to Sephora to check out the Sephora OPI nail polish and I got Metro Chic. This poslish cost $9.00. I thought it was a match for You don't know Jaques but once I put the pictures up side by side I see they don't look alike at all..lol I guess I still need jaques even though it seems to be sold out in every store. I will have to buy it online I guess.
The Essence online website came up with two series that I absolutely love. The first is called 30 Dates in 30 days which they have not done since season one and the other is Will You Marry Me. Yesterday the third installment of Will You Marry Me was uploaded on the Essence website. You watch all of the proposals and vote for the couple that you want to win the dream honeymoon. I always watch each video carefully and then think long and hard before casting my vote. I don't know why I take this so seriously firstly,you can technically vote as many times as you want and secondly, I don’t even know these people. lol Anyway if you watched who did you vote for? I still didn't vote- I'm still deliberating ..lol
