China Glaze Knotty

Going back to the Anchors Away collection, the China Glaze Spring 2011 releases... today I have Knotty, a micro-particle beige shimmer.  I wasn't sure how much I'd like this since it seemed kind of frosty to me.  I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Knotty and a top coat of Seche Vite.  The formula was pretty nice on this one but the coverage?  Well...

So here in the sun, I definitely had some VNL, which I'm not a fan of.  Plus, I feel like this color makes my nails look yellowed.  :[

Here in the shade, it doesn't really look as bad as it did to me in sun, but I'm still not totally sold.  It kind of looks like sand though. 

And here's an indoors with flash - back to not being a fan again.  I'm sure this would look better over something like white or black.  Speaking of, I'm trying to find a white that's an opaque one coater - any suggestions?
