We have yet another grey and rainy day here, so I thought Pelican Gray from the China Glaze Spring 2011 Anchors Away Collection was only fitting. This is a lovely dove grey creme with delicate hidden silvery shimmer. The formula on this shade was excellent, and I used two coats. This may be my favorite neutral grey shade!
I added a coat of China Glaze Latticed Lilac from the Crackle Metals Collection. This sparkly lilac glitter shade is actually quite subtle in color--I had hoped for a richer purple hue like it looks like in the bottle, but I do like the muted look that it has. The formula was easy to use and I did apply a top coat to add some shine to the otherwise matte finish.
Victoria Nail Supply did receive a limited amount of the China Glaze Crackle Metals yesterday. I don't see them up on their site yet, but if you're interested, just send Yen an eMail.
I don't know about your Summer, but ours has been filled with nothing but rain and clouds. If I didn't have my flowers to look at, I'd be seriously depressed by now. Here are some pictures I took this morning that I hope you enjoy, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some sun this weekend!
