To me, this is a darkish gray that can look almost olive in some lights. It's a very unique color that is surprisingly flattering and while dark and rather severe, isn't too harsh looking on my hands. The gray makes it perfect for fall, yet that warm olive undertone looks amazing with tan summer skin. I agree that the formula is runny, but not to the point where it's not workable, and 2-3 thin coats give me the perfect glossy opaque finish. For some reason, Power Clutch is a nail polish that I *really* enjoy applying watching the transformation from 1 coat to 3 is very satisfying lol. This one lasts very well, is prone to tip wear vs. outright chipping, but I'm having a full-on love affair with Essie Gel Setter top coat, so it lasts a full week for me.
