The color in this picture is pretty accurate; it's a soft, dusty teal cream with a lot of grey to it, giving it that muted look. A slightly less vibrant version of OPI Ski Teal We Drop. They are actually pretty similar, and I kinda wish that I hadn't bought both, but this one is a mini, so it won't be hard to use up. I actually only bought this one for the name, and for the dorkiest reason possible. You won't be able to guess, it's that bad. Okay *sigh*... There's a Pokemon episode called School of Hard Knocks, because a lot of Pokemon episodes are based off of other sayings, and the like. Yes. I'm a nerd. And proud of it! Erm, little bit of a tangent there. This color is nice, completely opaque in 2 or 3 coats, don't remember, though. It's a little bit watery, but not bad, and it does benefit from a topcoat. But I do like the color, and it's a little bit of a chameleon too, changing from greyish to blueish to greenish. Really gorgeous, but not super unique.
