2 coats provided great coverage. My only issue is that it came out darker than my tester pot

Looks fantastic!

I’d been looking for something different as an accent colour in my living room. Saw overtly olive in my local store and decided to give it a try. The paint is thick and goes onto the wall very well with excellent coverage. I’ve had lots of positive compliments from guests and even one saying ‘I don’t usually like the greens but that shade is gorgeous’. I’m really pleased with this purchase and would definitely recommend! 5 stars from me!

Great colour

Paint covered very well on my textured wallpaper. Lovely rich creamy colour.

Disappointed - much lighter than advertised!

I found this dried down into something much more akin to a sage or even mint colour rather than an olive. I painted over a dark-ish brown taupe so it's not the colour underneath causing that. On the upside, it only really needed one coat so the quality is good.

Great colour!

Was fed up of gray so wanted a cosy green colour. Initially wanted tranquil dawn, but after reading the reviews and not selling as a 5L tin I chose this one. Light when it first goes on but after drying it’s the perfect shade of green. Still have loads left too so a little goes a long way!
