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...

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...

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 +...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
