Taupe anyone?

So I'm in the office kitchen and one of my co-workers walks by with a really nice taupe colored sweater, I said "That's a nice sweater...I like the color...I have a nail polish that color"....Classic statement from me, everyone knows I have a nail polish "issue"...although I seem to be the only one who does not think it is an "issue"...LOL!

Anyway, after thinking about the color,  I realized that I have enough taupe's to do a comparison, so here it is....

Color Clubs "High Society"

OPI "Over the taupe"
OPI "You don't know Jacques"

Left to right (on the finger) Color club, Over the Taupe, High Society, and You don't know Jacques
Left to Right (bottles) High Society, Over the Taupe, You don't know Jacques.

I really like them all, "High Society" is a more dusty taupe, "Over the taupe" is a brighter more "hot cocoa" taupe, and Y.D.K.J is more of a darker mushroom taupe.  Who knew there were so many versions of taupe's?

Oh and by the way my co-workers sweater was closer to "You don't know Jacques" :) 
Pin It!
