China Glaze Pelican Grey

More neutral non glittery polish today :) I chose China Glaze Pelican Grey also from the Anchors Away collection. Pelican Grey is a medium grey (shock!) with a subtle shimmer.

I used one coat of Sally Hansen Triple Strong bofr my base and then two coats of Pelican Grey. No problems with application. I topped it off with a coat of Revlon Colorstay top coat. I have to point out that this polish dries darker than the bottle and when you first apply. Also once it's dry the gorgeous silver shimmer mostly disappears.

Picures, pictures, pictures! None in direct light unfortunately :( I swear my timing is terrible!

I really wish I had some daylight shots because I want to show the gorgeous silver shimmer in this. You can faintly see the shimmer at my tips in the photos above. I don't usually wear grey shades but I really like this colour. Overall I prefer the grey/blue shades like Sea Spray which I was wearing previously.

  1. Heh, I bought this one specifically because I love Sea Spray so much--can't wait to wear it! Looks like a nice medium (not too pale or too dark), and the little shimmer really adds a lot. ;)

    1. It is pretty isn't it! When I would get little spots of sunshine I could still see the shimmer but most of the other time it disappeared :(
