OPI You Don't Know Jacques! is from the 2008 La De France collection. It was the favourite from this collection back in 2008 and continues to be the best selling OPI polish with Tickle My France-Y in a close second. This is probably due to its unique color which is a grey, mousy-brown.Polish Name: You Don't Know Jacques!

Greige at it's finest.
This is hands-down the best dark colour out there (pun intended). I would call it Greige (a grey beige). Its got warm undertones. It looks good on long or short nails. It can be dressed up or casual. I almost wear it exclusively from Sept-Feb. Its just such a great colour. I would be devastated if OPI ever discontinued it.
Best color ever!
This dark neutral brown mauve grey color is my absolute favorite color!
Taupe? Grey? Both????
This is by far my most favorite classic neutral colours I turn to when I do not want to wear a bright colour. It applies for me in two coats when using OPI base and I use seche vite top coat
A bit streaky
I first used YDKJ with a generic base coat and it was super streaky - took 3 coats to achieve even coverage. I did try it with the Orly Bonder as a base coat and it went on smooth as butter - 2 coats achieved a nice deep tone in the coverage. That said, this colour actually does not go well with my skin tone (olivey undertones) so I've been using it as a foundation coat to lend more dimension to other colours that I place overtop. I did come across an awesome web tutorial for nail art and I'm excited to use YDKJ as a complementary colour in the nail art. May also try it with a delicate sparkle over top on my toes.
