I love this nail polish. It is my go to pedicure color. It is extremely classy looking and makes my toes look clean, elegant, and polished. I can wear it with just about any sandals or open toe shoes. The color is a warm light gray, and that's it, no shimmer, no flatness, no duochrome. Just a simple, clean gray. The formula is great, thick enough to be opaque in two coats, and doesn't …Read more

I LOVE this shade! It's the perfect light dove gray cream. I wear it through every season and it always works. I love it this summer with other neutrals like white, cream, and brown. The consistency isn't awesome, but it's not horrible either; 2 coats look great. I don't find it similar at all to moon over mumbai. That shade is much sheerer and has blue shimmer.

in the bottle this color is a very pale gray with some subtle shimmer. when first applied, it comes off very very sheer almost translucent white. i actually really like this. the color is buildable. you can stick with the sheer grayish white, which looks natural; or you can apply 2 more coats to achieve an opaque(very chic looking) pale shiny gray. this is one of the many reasons i love essie …Read more

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 over Mumbai, but I they do seem very similar.

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 a tinge of grey in it so that it is wearable and not chalk white.

I had the worst time getting this to apply evenly. No matter how careful I was or how many coats I did not ever …

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 applied 3 coats to get it completely opaque, and I don't see streaks or crazy pooling around the edges, plus it dries rather quickly. Love it :)

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. It's a universally flattering light grey creme with a lavender tint and subtle shimmer in some lights.

I am now convinced that product consistency changes from bottle to bottle. The first one I got was missing the little shaker ball. It went on reasonably well for a sheer polish. I switched out the bottle today. What a nightmare the new bottle was. It was a streaky mess and was fairly thick. I thinned it out but the application was still a nightmare.

The color is really 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 GE is an exact dupe of OPI's Moon Over Mumbai, so if you like either color, you might as well buy Essie's version since Essies generally cost less than OPIs and apply much better.

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. It is great on fair skin, both warm- and cool-toned. Very flattering - and it wears well. Definitely office-appropriate and higly recommended.
