Today I’m giving a quick swatch and review of my last polish from the goodie bag for a good cause I got last month. Awkwardly named Nicole for OPI My Jay or the Highway is from their Modern Family Collection. I’ve never seen the show – no cable, but I’d watch it on the merit of Ed O’Neil from Married with Children notoriety alone if I did have it.
My Jay or the Highway is a warmer leaning light taupe. I had some trouble capturing it accurately in the sun, but it shows fairly accurately in the shade. In indoor lighting under a flash it leans very green. If you have very steady hands, this will apply smoothly with opaque coverage at two coats but I went with three. Dry time was fairly quick. The formula was thin but not runny. Some photos in various lightings.
This taupe is a good formula and a neutral, subtle and classy enough shade for even a very conservative office. I do like it, but not as much as my other taupes which are slightly darker and cooler in tone. I think that this one leans warmer is what is making me not like it as much as others. If you have a warm skin tone and look great in sage green shades, this taupe would be for you. For me, I think it would be a good base for other nail art. So although this a great formula and a perfectly good work wear shade, it’s also boring as all get out so I stuck on some leopard stickers to convince me to keep it on long enough for the purpose of this review.
Have a good week!
