Grey is one of my all time favorite colors to wear as a nail polish. I am very fair with a cool undertone and most greys seem to work on me. So of coarse I was interested in Pelican Gray when the Anchor's Away collection came out. This color reminds me a lot of Zoya Harley, my HG shimmery light grey polish. PG is not quite as cool toned. On my skintone this color actually translates to more …Read more

I absolutely love this polish. When I realized it had shimmer, I thought, "oh no", but on the nails, it translates to a beautiful glow. It doesn't look frosty or even "shimmery", just a lovely diffused glow that makes it stand out more than a typical pale grey. You don't see shimmer particles unless you hold it right up to your eyeball, haha. The color is very …Read more

Absolutely beautiful grey shade. But I had to apply three coats to (barely) reach opacity, and that is one coat too much in my world. ETA: This looks stunning with two coats of Revlon Whimsical + one coat Seche Vite over it. Like blue clay with pink and blue glitter sprinkle. Love, and one more lippie!

China Glaze makes gorgeous polishes, and as much as I wanted to love Pelican, I just couldn't get on board (pun unintended).

I have olive, warm toned skin, and the grey in this colour really becomes more like a slate blue against my complexion. Pelican wasn't quite the gorgeous grey I was looking for, but I found it in CG Concrete. I think Pelican would would be lovely on …

Bought at hair salon on sale on a whim as it was on sale. Very low price. Have never tried China Glaze before and I was very impressed. Colour was lovely, light grey with the smallest hint of shimmer. Looked great on my nails. Used 2 coats + silver glitter topcoat and it looked great though I think it looks better w/out glitter. Dried nicely and did not chip. Very pleased and this has encouraged …Read more

I am new to the China Glaze brand - I was looking for a taupe-y mushroom gray at Sally's the other day and instead was drawn to this. This is not taup-y at all, it's got blueish undertones. I feel like the color should have been called "wet cement" or "raincloud" because I feel like that more accuratly describes the color. Or putty, or clay, etc...

That …

Lately I feel pretty sure China Glaze has become my favorite brand of nail polish, for its color selection, smooth and lasting formula, and its price. This polish applied smoother than any new polish that I had tried in months, dried quickly, and lasted about 5 days on my natural nails without chipping (which is an accomplishment on a nurse, let me tell you).

The color is a cool, steel …

I like this color but some things are not working for me. It's a pure, 100% cool toned gray, nothing warm about it, so it's not as flattering as some other (warmer) grays on me, but that's due to skintone. And while I like the subtle shimmer it has, applications is somewhat problematic, formula is thick and with a narrow brush and thick formula it's not easy to apply it neatly …Read more

Normally I tend to shy away from "shimmer" nail polishes. Something about them makes me think about my stepmother in the early 90's. Her signature polish was always some type of frosted horrid light pink and my loathing of her transferred to shimmer polishes. But I really like this particular color, the shimmer is ssshh secret. My elephant eared color nail polish is magically …Read more

Too thick to apply evenly. the colour was gorgeous but its too thick. If it was thin enough, its too streaky, if its thick enough, it comes on in clumps. Takes a while to dry.
