China Glaze: Pelican Gray (Anchors Away Collection)

Good morning! It's an icky yucky rainy April day here in Connecticut. So it's only appropriate that I share a gray color today!  This is China Glaze's Pelican Gray from the Anchors Away spring 2011 collection.  It's a light creme gray color which we're seeing more and more of lately.   I like colors like this but I am not sure I need so many! I guess the only thing that makes this one stand out is the very very very slight hint of shimmer it contains. I called it a creme but I said there's shimmer in it? What's wrong with me?! But honestly, there's a slight shimmer in this but  you'd really see it more of a creme.  I am pretty sure you cannot even see the shimmer at all in any of the photos.

Formula was great, as always seems to be the case with China Glaze for me.  I achieved maximum opacity with two coats.  I had no issues with balding or streaking. 

Do you need this? Not if you have a few creme grays in your collection. I mean the shimmer makes it different but you can't even see it. If you have Lippmann's Waking Up in Vegas or Zoya's Dove (maybe slightly darker) you won't need this.  Of the three I'd say go for the formula you like best since the colors are so close it's not truly necessary to own all three.  Up to you really.

So what do you think of all the light grays coming on the scene lately? I dig them! I think they're great colors. When Lippman's Waking Up In Vegas came out it was something we hadn't seen much of before but now it's getting popular.
