OPI You Don't Know Jacques!

The weeks are just flying by, aren't they? I can't believe October is almost over, and I don't even remember it starting. The leaves have changed colors and are starting to fall, but the weather in Colorado isn't yet cold enough for daily coat use. It gets pretty chilly in the morning but warms up significantly in the afternoon, and I can't wait for it to be cold all the time. I absolutely love fall, sweaters, scarves and pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks (it's the only time I buy them) :D

OPI's You Don't Know Jacques! is a great fall color. It's a dark brown/greige/taupe/mushroom (by the by, I hate the word "greige". It sounds weird.) BUT the color is great. I'm actually a big fan of this, and the formula was wonderfully creamy and consistent.

You really have to look around to find the right taupe/mushroom tones for your skin color. That Essence polish that I tried out here just didn't do anything for me. But this definitely does. I can't say exactly why I'm a fan, but something about the deeper color and maybe the onset of fall has me going. I don't know.

If this post makes absolutely no sense, it's because I got absolutely no sleep last night, and am exhausted. I really need to start nailing (ha, no pun intended) down a true schedule and sticking to it, because at the moment I dont' even have one. I just sleep when it's gotten too late, and my homework is always finished last minute. You would think that a 4th year university student would have learned to properly manage her time, but that's a big fat no.

So what are your thoughts on You Don't Know Jacques! ? I know it's a pretty popular color, or used to be...
