Orly Country Club Khaki Nail Polish – NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 17 - 2010

A very beautiful pale greige that I was sent a while ago by the lovely Liloo.

Shown here is 2 coats, and I think it probably needs 3… looked fine indoors but a touch patchy in direct sunlight.  Country Club Khaki is a gorgeously sophisticate creamy greige and definitely in my top 5.  If you’re into the trend, you need this polish in your life!

I find Orly’s brushes a touch on the narrow side, but the formula was completely forgiving and I didn’t have any issues to speak of.

Are you a fan of the trend? I personally love it.  There’s a great looking new Nails Inc shade aswell that I need to tell you about soon!

£6.99 from Beauty4Nails-Body.

  1. Beautiful shade! I admire that you have a little baby and yet always have a great mani x

    It looks like a really good dupe of that currently hot shade by Chanel, Particulaire?

  4. @Marina – There’s always time for a quick mani!

    @Jamilla – hmmm yeah, it’s quite cool toned… it could make darker skintones look a bitt dead!

    @Julia – No, I don’t think it’s a decent dupe… it’s too pale. I think OPI Over The Taupe is a better bet (although warmer than the Chanel)

    Greige?! that’s such a good word I’ve never heard it before, I am assuming it’s a grey/beige thing? I love this type of colour – never considered it for nails but wear eyeshadows in it.
    think we also painted our lounge wall in this kind of colour once- think it’s better on nails though…

    I am not a great fan of creme (is that the name of the finish) and I find it a bit flat. Lovely elegant shade nevertheless, and I can totally see the appeal.

    I have this colour! I love it, it really is a good dupe of Chanel Particuliere. However I find that it chips terribly after less than 24 hours wear. Maybe it’s just my application skills….?

  14. [...] Wear is a pale grey/beige which reminds me of Orly’s Country Club Khaki.  It’s a 3 coater and a little gloopy, possibly down to it’s age… I shall try [...]
