Color Club’s Element of Surprise

This color is simlar to China Glaze Pearl Jammin’ (of which I have several bottles.) But…I like Pearl Jammin’ much better. Element of Surprise is still not opaque after three coats! You can clearly see the nail line, and also those areas on my thumbnail where the polish fills in some near-permanent divots. (Those “dents” do eventually grow out, but it’s a months-long process.) The duotone is pretty strong, and looks either more pink or more copper, depending on the lighting and surroundings.
