This is the infamous MPJ, although it's the new version. The old version was more of a charcoal color and a linear holo, this is more brown with a scattered holo although it looks black in most indoor lighting, and there is also a blue flash version; all with the same name! Regardless of the holo, I love this color. The TraceFace Philes has a great comparison on the different formulas of this color.
If you follow my blog you may remember I posted about my all time lemming (here). I got my nails done in my normal salon 3.5 years ago and still remember this gorgeous color, but I wasn't into polish as much as now so I never knew the name. All I have of it are a few pictures from that time that you can barely see my nails in. I thought I had found the color in Finger Paints Sketch-y until I got it on, photographed it and found more old pictures of my nails and realized it was no where close. Ladies; I fully believe MPJ is that color. Check out the comparison pictures below, bottom left is probably the best picture. I'm positive this is it!

This is 2 coats MPJ, it dries a little satin but clear coat glossed it right up. Accent nail is one coat MPJ, China Glaze For Audrey, & Orly Nite Owl. Clear coat is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. Next time I think I will try a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust for some extra holo sparkle, I wanted a simpler look today. This is what I call a fishtail chevron because a chevron is generally straight not curved but a fishtail is also referred to as this, which I'm calling a fishtail braid. Here is a tutorial from Chalkboard Nails for this design :)
