Orly Country Club Khaki, Revlon Gray Suede, OPI Tickle My France-y swatches

I received Orly's Country Club Khaki (CCK) in the mail yesterday together with a few others that I bought online recently (yeah I had trouble resisting). I'll probably be doing a nail polish haul entry this weekend/coming week after collecting my TD and OPI loots from Gwen and Kim/Pris respectively. Yes to more polishes! I'm amassing more than I can ever finish using, but these small bottles of colour are addictive and I'm happy to have them.

Anyway, for this entry, I wanted to compare CCK with a couple of similar colours from my current stash: Revlon Gray Suede (recently bought from JL's 20% off sale) and OPI Tickle My France-y (bought second-hand). Oh, I added Orly Coffee Break as a fourth colour just cos I wanted to paint one more finger, not really as a means of comparison. So you can ignore that one if you'd like. LOL. Here we go!

Orly CCK is the darkest amongst them, almost kinda taupish. This was one thick coat, I can't remember if I painted a second coat. Nah I don't think I did.

Revlon Gray Suede, which is nowhere near gray, has a pink tone to it and contains subtle shimmers. That was 2 coats.

OPI TMF is the lightest shade of them all, but considered as one of the best nudes around. Two coats.

Here's how they look like under different lighting conditions:

Best colour match

Which one's your favourite nude?

i like the revlon one! actually like nude shoes, i think theres something sexy bout nude nail colors.

anyway lillgoddess, you are not alone when it comes to wanting to resist buying nail colors. i told myself i need to stop but it is easily forgotten the moment i chanced upon a color (i think i do not have but not exactly it.....lol) or a brand i have yet to try... sigh. a nail devil is living in me. :-)
