Twinsie Tuesday: Hyped Up Polish

It's Tuesday! You know what that means! Twinsie Tuesday! This weeks edition: a hyped up polish.


Sorry for the late post, something was wrong with the router. Called the husband - and here I am!

It took me a while to choose what I wanted since I didn't have that many hyped up polishes. Originally, I was going to do the famous dupe for Bad Romance, but then I thought about the removal process, and I was like, nahhhhh. So here is what I decided on:




Sorry for the many pictures. I just could not capture the copper/brown super fine shimmer. It didn't really transfer well on the nails - which was disappointing. I used 2 coats and it looks perfect! It's super opaque. I could have gotten away with coat but I really wanted the copper shimmer to stand out in which it really didn't. But it's ok I guess.

I just purchased this MPJ recently and really wish I would've picked it up when it was first released back in 2007. Because the newer formulas are not the same as the first original one. As you can see:

Look at the big difference. That is so disappointing. I mean, it's still very pretty but I would have preferred the original formula. The new MPJ looks almost like the original one but without the holo. How sad is that? It's what made MPJ so awesome, wasn't it? Anywho, what do you think of this?

Do you own the original MPJ?

  1. I understand your disappointment. I have the newer MPJ also and I actually prefer it's dupe, Revvvolution, because the holo is so awesome in it.

  2. I only own the second version as well, I definitely know what you mean. I can't believe OPI would re-release this without changing the name!

  3. Oh wow, I guess I never realized there was such a difference between the old and new formula. I wonder why they wouldn't add the holo to the newer formula? The newer one is still a very pretty color, but the old one looks really unique... Too bad!

  5. I have the second version as well but I really like it as a charcoal brown holo. If you're looking for another dupe besides Revvvolution, try Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm.

    1. Its still really nice but I prefer the orginal MPJ. Too bad its no where to be found. Diamond Cosmetics? Never heard of that brand before.

  6. I've got the same version as yours. I really think they should just discontinue the color or release the new version under a different name. It's pretty but almost like false advertising now.

  7. I have the same version as you. I loved this polish and had to buy a back up bottle. Then, I saw the original MPJ and I haven't touched this polish since lol. I wish they would rerelease it!

  8. I thought about doing the dupe for Bad Romance too. I don't have either version of MPJ but I could understand why you would be disappointed.

  9. The holo one is gorgeous, I still like your version, but it is too bad that the shimmer didn't show up!
