China Glaze Pelican Gray

This is a very pretty light gray. There is shimmer in it, believe it or not, but I have to look very closely to find it even in direct sunlight. So, pretty much a creme.

Both Zoya and China Glaze have just come out with light gray polishes, and I’m pretty sure that someone will be wondering if it is worth it to buy both. You can see they look pretty much the same in the bottle

On the nail they are very slightly different. Dove is a true cream, Pelican Gray just might as well be a cream since the shimmer is so subtle. There are very minor differences in shade, but this isn’t apparent in all lighting and unless you have decided that you must have every gray polish on the planet, I’d just go with whichever formula works best for you.

    Vonnie- You might want to check out the new Dior polishes, they're coming out with a set of 3. 1 is blue-greyed, 1 is a dark grey creme (so pretty!) and there's a grey shimmer that is exclusive to their NY store I think as well. I've just ordered the NY one on eBay… though it might be a few weeks before it comes. Regardless, those greys are darker and look amazing!
