You Don't Know Jacques!

Happy Saturday! It's a rainy day here in Ottawa, so I hope that wherever you are, you have a bit better weather than I'm having! I have the perfect fall polish to go with this rainy weather, OPI's You Don't Know Jacques! I know that this is a much loved polish by many, many people, but this was the first time I've worn it. You Don't Know Jacques! was released as a part of OPI's La Collection de France in Fall 2008. My favourite polish from that collection would have to be Parlez-Vous OPI?, which I wore the other day.


You Don't Know Jacques! is a beautiful brown polish with purple and grey undertones. I think that this is a perfect Fall/Winter colour. The formula on this polish was okay, I found it a bit thin. I used three coats for an opaque finish. I would have liked to have seen a thicker, creamier formula.


I've really been loving darker shades like this lately. I never used to match my polishes to the seasons, but this Autumn I've totally given into the trend. You Don't Know Jacques! is a great neutral shade, you can pair this with any outfit or makeup look. Some people might find this shade boring, but I quite liked it. Sometimes you just want to wear a neutral creme polish, no shimmer, no glitter, no metallic finish. This polish is work appropriate, and I think it's a great shade to paint on when you don't know what to wear!


You Don't Know Jacques! has become a part of OPI's permanent collection, and is one of their best sellers. I feel like this shade is one that you either love or hate. Let me know your thoughts on it, and whether or not you already own it! :)
