China Glaze Anchors Away - Pelican Gray

Today I have to show you Pelican Gray from China Glaze Anchors Away collection.  Now I admit, when I first saw it I thought, well, urgh its grey, then I saw some swatches and it kind of grew on me to the point where I thought well, I'm going to buy it, and if I don't like it I'm sure it will make a good base colour for some stamping and nail art.  (Please excuse my middle finger cuticle in the pics, dog tooth related incident!)

Well, it arrived, and I tried it, and I'm rather pleased to say, I like it :)  The formula is good and it went on smooth with no bubbles (which are a pain!  I always seem to get them no matter how careful I am and never shake the bottle.)  I wasn't sure I would like it, after all, its grey, a dull bland boring colour, the colour of concrete.  It shouldn't work, but it does.  It has a lovely subtle shimmer in it that stops it from being a flat creme colour, and I did keep looking at my nails when I had it on.  It is quite classy looking and I will definitely be wearing it again, I had nothing else like it in my collection and I'm so glad I have it now :)
