Friday Favorite with a Flair! OPI You Don't Know Jacques/Model City Polish Dipping Chocolate

Happy Friday!  I'm home with my 6 year old...she has pink eye :(  The good thing is, it's nice and sunny out and now I have the day off!

For this Friday Favorites with a Flair, I chose OPI You Don't Know Jacques (Fav) with Model City Polish Dipping Chocolate (Flair).

Dipping Chocolate is a chocolate brown base with holographic glitter.  I only used one coat over two coats of OPI You Don't Know Jacques for this look. 
I really like this look.  Recently, I saw swatches of You Don't Know Jacques Suede and immediately fell in love.  I thought this would look similar to it and it really does, minus the suede finish.  I think I'm going to throw a matte top coat on this and see what happens.

The holographic glitter in Dipping Chocolate is very apparent in real life.  I love how it looks with the brown - so unique.  I would also like to note that Dipping Chocolate is very shiny.  I do have a layer of Revlon Colorstay Top Coat over it; but sometimes certain glitters can be a little rough and not as shiny, even with a top coat.  This one is an exception.

Crazy, I just looked back to see when I first showed You Don't Know Jacques on my blog and it was almost exactly a year ago.  I wore it on May 26, 2012.  I cringe at those swatches...eeek...what in the heck was going on with the tips of my nails in the second photo?? LOL.  And that is exactly why I like doing Friday Favorites with a Flair. I can bring back polishes that I may have already shown on my blog and possibly provide a better picture.  You Don't Know Jacques is such an awesome brown - opaque in two coats.  I highly recommend it.

...update!...I added Butter London's Matte Top Coat.  It looks more like OPI You Don't Know Jacques Suede!  Yippeee:)
