China Glaze’s Café Mystique

This polish was thinner than many China Glaze colors, but I really like the color! It's such a soft pale rose-nude. I don't know if I have anything close to this shade from any other polish vendor. From online photos, I expected it to be a little cooler, a little darker, a little more brown. Two coats was nearly opaque coverage (85%), so I'm guessing that three would be absolutely solid.

The only detraction here is that this seems to be a classic “frost” finish. It shows brushstrokes fairly well.
