I really like this colour it a dark brown with a slight taupe undertone. It's a great colour for the cooler months or a good alternative to black nail polish. All you need is two coats. or three to really bring out the colour. I can see why this is such a popular colour. It goes great with my yellow skin tone. I will definitely repurchase when I run out.

Have been looking for a dark, but not too dark, unique and opaque color. This really fit the bill. Its a pretty combo of purple, gray, brown...
HG color for me and my skin tone. LOVE LOVE LOVE

You Don't Know Jacques! is from the French Collection. The formula is creme base. The color is brown with strong grey undertone. It's kind of mocca color. The 1st application looks rather thin. But then, once I applied the 2nd coat, it gives a complete coverage.

I can understand why so many people like this color. It's a very unusual color. This color doesn't look vampy at all but it's more like an elegant color. It suits well either go to work or a nice evening out. OPI has a similar version called Over The Taupe. But that color has more brown in it, not as elegant as this color. If you like an elegant color with lots of compliments, this is the one to go. I give it a 5 because it's unusual and it's very French. I will see that I will wear this color a lot in fall/winter days.

This was a shade that I was drawn to for the unique shade, quickly returned, and then swapped to re-acquire later. Finally tried it on tips last week, and absolutely hated it. Then .... I stepped out into daylight and fell in love instantly! On my MMM skintone, this is unique, different, and amazingly beautiful against my skintone. What I adore about this (aside the fact that it's one of the few mani shades I've gotten compliments on!!) is that in some lighting, it appears more beigey .. in other lighting, it appears more greyish/beigey .. so it completely changes. It's a cream, and the lack of shimmer is what really brings sophistication to this shade for me. I felt totally bad-a$$ wearing this, chic, stylish .. Nothing but love and a NOW permanent place in my insane stash!

Not a particularly successful polish compared to the other choices that are out there, so I don't think it's that great.

Unusual colour, for sure. But also can look like poo brown in certain lights.

Chips and scratches very easily and quickly (on the first day of application), and once this happens, it looks tacky and childish, not good for around the office.

On the plus side, it dries very quickly, even before I've fixed up the stroke lines on one half of the nail!

I would not buy this again, nor recommend it, now I have Essie - Matte About You, I could just buy a nice brown colour and matte it sometimes.

PS - I don't believe in buying Matte polishes now I have found Essie Matte About You. Most especially because of the chips & scratches which come from the matte OPI polishes.

After lemming YDKJ for months and reading such rave reviews for it, I was finally able to swap for it. Unfortunately, I am in the minority as this color doesn't quite work on my skin tone. I thought it would be a bit more gray but it ended up being more of a chocolate brown and darker than I imagined. It just looked too muddy on me :( The first coat was also very streaky. It is a cool color, just not one that I can pull off. Sais la vie!

This is my favorite nail polish by far. I had to buy the bottle. It matches with anything and I get so many compliments.

This is my favorite Nail polish. I always buy the same colors : pink coral red....and I wasn't really sure about this one but on the nails I was veruy impressed and this is a very wearable color ! I love dark nail polishes like black or dark green but I find them hard to wear everyday. But this one is perfect it's a creamy taupe color with a hint of gray. It's beautiful! i will buy it again!

Love this - and I constantly get compliments on this color! I tried Sephora OPI Metro Chic prior to this and found it too light and purple. YDKJ is browner and darker, but it suits my nc42 skintone. I work in an office setting and I feel that it is the perfect balance between professional and fashion-forward.

My go to color is dark plummy color like Lincoln Park After Dark and Siberian Nights, I probably have 5 or more nail polishes all similar to these colors. So I decided to try out this grey taupe polish, I love it! I put 2 coats on and it lasted good 10 days without any chipping. Is it really LE? I saw similar colors from Sally Hansen and Rimmel so gonna try those out and compare. But I'm definitely getting backup of this.
