Clambake is an orange-red nail polish with a lovely jelly formula. Essentially this means that this colour will apply sheer you will be able to see your nail line through it at two coats but will dry to an incredibly shiny finish, just like a real life jelly! If seeing your nail line is a pet peeve for you, you may not enjoy Clambake or other jelly polishes. However, this polish is gorgeous in my mind, I wear it all year round and it definitely brightens up your day. It is bright, warm and eye catching, but is still suitable for everyday wear. It looks amazing on both cool and warm skin tones, and flatters both dark and light skins. I find it to be a universally flattering shade. It applies easily, the formula does not run or apply streakily or patchily. Two coats is all you need. The polish has good staying power, lasting for around 5 days which I find to be typical for Essie's line of nail polishes. Clambake is a beauty and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves bright and cheerful nail polish shades. I promise this baby will make you happy!
