Happy Hump Day Everyone! Today I have for you an older polish from China Glaze called Pelican Gray. Originally released in the Spring 2011 Anchors Away Collection, Pelican Gray is a medium grey polish with silver micro shimmer.
I wasn't too sure I would like a polish the same color as concrete on my nails, but I wanted a nice neutral grey in my collection. After all, you never know when you might need one! I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered I really liked wearing this! The shimmer saves it from being completely boring, even though it's very subtle, yet it still can be an everyday polish or a "pallet cleanser".
I'm sad to say that application was a bit of a mess with this one. It's a bit on the runny side and I had some issues with pooling at the cuticles. The first coat was pretty sheer, but it builds up nicely. Shown here is 2 coats without top coat. I probably could have used a 3rd coat but I was using this as a base for a glitter polish and wasn't too worried about VNL.

I do like that this dries to a nice, smooth, glossy finish. And I would wear this again, application issues and all. Although I do have my fingers crossed that if I mix up my bottle a little better next time I won't have as many. What do you think of Pelican Gray? Did anyone else have the same issues with the application? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
