OPI My Private Jet Comparison!

So how many OPI My Private Jet versions ARE there anyways? I have 3 in my stash, but I hear there are actually four or maybe even five?

I received some requests to do a comparison, so here is what I came up with...
(remember all photos are clickable to view larger!)
Holo version on left, Blue Flash in middle, Yuk Brown on right.

Holo, Blue Flash, Yuk Brown

Holo and Blue Flash (with flash)

Holo and Blue Flash (no flash)

Blue Flash and Yuk Brown

As far as the formulas go, Holo is much more thin and runny compared to the other two. It is more sheer and needs almost 3 coats to look opaque. The other two are thicker and cover easier. Blue flash looks like a lighter brown compared to the Yuk Brown when dry. It also looks smoother than Yuk Brown. Although its kinda hard to tell a difference here in these photos. I do see a slight scattered holo in the Blue Flash version. The Yuk Brown just has silver flecks that seem to be a tad holo under certain light.

What did you think of this comparison post? Do you have any of these 3 in your stash? Or perhaps do you have another version of MPJ??

I had what I thought to be the original but it's def the blue flash :( It is still a pretty color even though it's not as holo-y.

I have also seen a brown holo on a blog before. Wish I could remember which one. It wasn't as gorgeous as the black holo, but it was really nice!

I have the Yuk Brown one! I'm pretty sure anyways.. That's crazy that they have so many different ones! Why don't they just give them different names? Or bring back the Holo one:(!

I have one, but I really can't tell which it is. I know it's not the holo one though.

I kind of like the blue one.

I have the blue flash and totally love it, I think it is so pretty that it should have its own name instead of living in the MPJ shadow :)

Aradia said...

I want my private jet so bad! but i want the holo one and its not safe to buy it online beacause i can get the yuck brown.

Here in my city i can't find it :(

The holo is the beat (haha!! but so true!!) and then the blue.
I didn't know there were 3 versions of this polish. I tought there were only 2 versions...

The holo version is still my favourite, but sadly I don't own any of these. Nice comparison :)

Minty said...

LOL, "yuk brown"! I love the blue flash one, it's probably my favorite.

I still can't believe I have an original version of this--bought when it first came out and I STILL haven't worn it! Yikes I better get on it! Personally I see no difference in blue flash and the brown, but my eyes are old lol!

Swååfie said...

I have the Yuck brown and I LOVE it!

Martje said...

I have the yuck brown one...and Im not very happy with it I have to admit :S

mgiandzi said...

i have the blue flash one! Atleast its not the worst one out there, but sadly not the best LOL!

I picked up the holo charcoal version in a dusty (!), but I don't like it very much. Ducks and covers.

I just don't like black/blackish polish!

ScarsLikeLace said...

I'm not really a fan of any of the MPJs. I prefer brown cremes. If I had to pick, though, I'd say the original with the linear holo is the best, though! ^.^

nina@themissadventuresofnina said...

yes, I so have another version than these!

Kami Dumis said...

I was going thru a box of "stuff" tonight and guess what I found? An original bottle of My Private Jet! I almost pee'd myself! LOL. Just put it on, havent done any cleanup or anything yet but I am so happy. I used to regularly buy new OPI collections that far back even before I became the polish junkie I am now!
