China Glaze’s Classic Camel

I didn't think I would like this color, so originally I didn't get it. Apparently, though, everyone else did think they'd like it, because it was the first color to sell out - and it sold out within about a week. I think that part of the attraction was seeing a color that hadn't been done much anywhere else. I'd seen bright yellows, pale yellows, browns and tans, but no tanned-gold / “brown mustard” colors like this one.

Two coats is nearly opaque, but not quite. I still had a little bit of VNL (you can see it best in the third photo.) I would love to find a straight creme in this base color, for use in nail stamping. I don't know that this one would work because of the microglitter and because the polish is just a little bit watery. Certainly it would be a problem with any fine-detail stamp design.

<p>I like this color because it's "work appropriate" (I may be getting a go-in-to-an-office type job - yikes!!) but it's not plain or straightforward. Even though the formula is a little thin, I am glad I got this color. Maybe over time it will thicken up just a little...? No? Ah, well, worse things have happened.</p>
