Nail Trends: Autumn 2011 - Grey & Pelican Grey

Continuing with the Autumn 'Grey' trend we have BarryM's Grey and China Glaze's Pelican Grey. BarryM's Nail Paints are available in Boots & Superdrug stores across the UK and retail for £2.99, they're usually on offer though too! (2 for £5 or something) or you can buy them online at www.barrym.com. China Glaze is a US brand that is pretty hard to get a hold of in the shops in the UK, I know Sallys sell them at £6.49, but other than that I have no idea. I got most of mine from eBay for roughly £3 each. Bargain.
Grey is a dark grey creme polish, it sort of looks like wet cement. I've found in artificial light, it looks black. Like all dark colours it's extremely pigmented and it goes on so well (as most BarryM polishes do).
  • Application 10/10
  • Pigmentation 10/10
  • Coats 1 thick coat
Pelican Grey comes from the Anchors Away collection. It's a gorgeous cool toned grey with blue undertones and infused with subtle silver glitter. As it has a hidden shimmer to it, it creates a nice soft cloudy look to the colour. The pigmentation isn't the best in this shade, it requires a couple of coats to take effect.
  • Application 7/10
  • Pigmentation 6/10
  • Coats 3
What do you think of these colours? Do you own them or just want them?
