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.
