Norwegian term or phrase: skjørt
I tillegg til å være funksjonell, skal kapselen ha en farge på skjørt/lokk som gjør at produktet ikke lar seg forveksle med andre produkter i uetikettert tilstand.

Is it like a shell

English translation:skirt
Explanation:
It seems as if the instructions are suggesting that the capsule has to have a skirt/lid in distinctive colors. The direct translation might actually be the correct one as skirt is usually the Norwegian reference for bottoms, there might be appropriate American terms for capsule tops and bottoms, but Norwegians would totally use skirt for bottoms.
Good to see you again btw.
