American Apparel Army Jacket

I just received the four new American Apparel shades I ordered and naturally, I'm in the middle of 3 projects I need to have finished up in an hour so I don't have time to swatch them all! My curiosity will have to wait on the other three, but I just had to see what Army Jacket looked like. The three photos below were all taken outside, the first under cloudy skies, then partly cloudy skies, and the last one is under full sun.



Below: Here's a quick bottle comparison with Essie Sew Psyched. Similar shades, but in no way dupes.

My order arrived quicker than I expected and they were all packed very well. As with the majority of American Apparel polishes, this one applied very nicely and I used 2 coats. Actually, I think it applied even better than previous ones I've swatched. I would describe Army Jacket as a muted dusty celery with a touch of olive. What do you think of this shade? As a lover of green polishes, you know I'm loving it!
edited: misscarley asked how it compares to Chanel Khaki Vert and I apologize, I should've thought to include the Chanel in my photo! I just looked and the Chanel is darker and greyer. In my opinion, Khaki Vert is more similar to the Essie.
