A beautiful dove gray in the bottle. I apply this over a coat of white to better show off the subtle gray tones. It's streaky as mentioned below, but worth it. Haven't compared it yet to Moon...

I wish I could say wonderful things about Great Expectations but I can't! The color looks lovely in the bottle. It is slightly shimmery but in a really subtle way. I like how it looks white with...

I really like the finish of this nail polish-shiny and smooth. It's a pale, almost whitish-gray with just a hint* of shimmer (you can barely see it, but it's not just a flat shade in my opinion). I...

This was a hot streaky mess. The color was great, but it took 3 coats of color and 1 coat of Seche Vite to not be sheer. It was thin and messy to apply, but once I cleaned it up it looked nice....

I saw this color on clearance at my BSS and instantly fell in love. This is an interesting color: a light gray creme with just a hint of silver shimmer. I definitely agree with the fact that...

Like Schmiddy says, it is a very near dupe of OPI's Moon Over Mumbai, which is in my all time top 20 np colors. It's a great alternative neutral when you don't want off-whites, pinks or beiges....
