The Next Best Thing To My Private Jet?

Hi all!

Today I have one of the polishes for you that is said to be a dupe/replacement of OPI's My Private Jet. I'm talking about the brown holo version. I don't own MPJ myself, so if you have it, please let me know if it comes close to the polish I'm about to show you.

The polish I'm talking about is Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm. I bought this one when I didn't even like holo's and I didn't understand all the fuss about holographic polishes. I started to like them more and more, so when the sun came out, so did this polish out of my helmer!

Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm, three coats in daylight/sunlight. The first picture is taken without direct (sun)light hitting the nail, so you can see the color of the polish itself without the holograpic effect. Chainmail Charm is a brown based holographic polish, that is a bit shy in soft daylight but shines in full sun. It was quite hard to capture all the holo and I have to say that I couldn't capture it all, so please note that Chainmail Charm is more holographic than shown in my pics.

Application on this one was fine, I had no problems. Drying time was good. The polish dries glossy and relatively smooth.

After taking those pics (and like a gazillion others), I went outside to take pics in full sun.

Ain't that cute? One of our cats came to check out my nail polish - and camera, obviously. Normally she stays away from my nails because she finds it smelly, but not this time :)

What do you think of Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm? Do you think it comes close to OPI's My Private Jet? Let me know, I want to find out!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Normally, browns don't look very good on me but I think this would be the one exception. I love me some holos!
    Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I like the polish and I love the picture with te Curious Cat in it :-D

  3. Very nice color! And a really cute kitty!

  4. I don't have the original MPJ, but I've seen lots of swatches,and have read that Chainmail Charm does come very close to a good dupe!

  5. I have MPJ, and I think it's a little darker and less brownish. Also, I think the glitter is a little grittier in MPJ.

    Is MPJ a holo btw? I have only swatched once on a decidedly cloudy day and didn't see anything of the sort. Here's a picture in daylight btw.

  6. I love this colours. I'll never own MPJ so this one is at the top of my wish list.

  7. Stunning! So I can just stop the hunt for MPJ in the holo version and be happy to get chainmail charm now :-)

  8. Gorgeous polish! I love holo's!
