I have a few gray polishes and I like this one the best. Application was really smooth and something about this gray was cool tone, and not dreary. I paired this with a pink maxi dress and got so many compliments on my polish and several workers at ulta asked what color I was wearing. If you look really closely, once polish is applied, there are these dark little speckles(they are not very noticeable but are a nice touch). I am glad I splurged on this shade. Its the only gray I own that is cool toned enough to wear in the summer time as well as the winter.
