Color Club Object of...trickery?

Alright, I feel tricked. This is a swatch of Color Club Object of Envy. So, how come my bottle is 9,000 times less opaque than anyone elses?

This is FIVE coats. FIVE. FREAKING. COATS.
After the 3rd coat I realized this was a joke, this was never going to be the gorgeous opaque green glitter I'd seen on so many other blogs.

After I did this swatch I googled, yes, I ordered the right polish I was thinking of. But no one else has a swatch that looks like mine. Now I would claim bad bottle but this isn't the first time I've gotten a bottle of CC from Transdesign that looks completely different from every other swatch (I'm looking at you Rebel Débutante). So I would really like to know WTH is going on, is it an issue with consistency from Color Club or something fishy going on with Transdesign?
Has anyone else had similar problems?

That really sucks! If it were to work though it would be really pretty.

I have this polish sitting in my untrieds. I will have to bring it out and see if mine is the same.

I can't believe that is five coats! That really sucks...

The issue with Rebel Debutante was addressed by colour club. I think the labels got mixed up so bottles of the colour Twiggie and Rebel Debutante were getting mixed up. You can read about it here: http://thenailphile.blogspot.com/2010/06/color-club-rebel-debutante-mystery.html

I can't believe you actually took the time to put on 5 coats. I hope you figure out what happened

Wtf. 5 Coats? Send an email to them, I've seen swatches about the nailpolish and that's not a nail polish, it's a top coat, glitter, whatever...
Hope you can fix it, or THEY fix it :\ *
Good luck
