If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you’ve probably seen me complaining about the heat and/or sun. I crave perfectly crisp, overcast days and chilly, stormy nights, but I live in Southern California, where lately we barely get a week of rain per year. This weekend, however, I got my perfectly overcast, rainy day, and I decided to do a complementary manicure.
I recently used another light gray, Zoya’s Dove, but Pelican Gray is a bit of a deeper gray, and it also has barely perceptible microshimmer. So…basically, they’re not total dupes, which means it’s definitely justifiable to have them both, obvs. (#polishaddictprobs) Pelican Gray’s formula is a little thin, so I used three coats here just to make 100% sure any streakiness is was covered.
I really love Nostalgia. I think I got this at CVS (it was a few years ago and they had a bunch of colors, I got a green, purple, and maybe a gold from this same line?) but Nostalgia has the most beautiful reflective quality, and is the only one of the glitters from this group that doesn’t apply sparsely. I adore the way it looks on top of Pelican Gray – it definitely evokes a rainy feel with the twinkly pale blue glitter atop the moody light gray. Ugh love, love, love this combo.
Thanks for reading, y’all! The weather forecast shows there might be some rain this weekend, too, so wish me luck! :) See you next time – A x
