Essie Raise Awareness

You may have noticed in my stash-carpet picture I don't own many baby pinks. That's because, frankly, I hate them on myself. LOL. DBF is in love with baby pink on me, for some insane reason, so he flipped when I bought this polish "for him". I also got him Essie French Affair, though I hate it on myself.

Anyway, I had read that the formula on Raise Awareness was good and it looked a little warmer in swatches, so I decided to give it a try.

Essie Raise Awareness - the formula is much better. It's almost jelly-ish, and not chalky at all. I think I used 2 coats here.

Comparison: Essie Raise Awareness and Essie French Affair - It's a tiny bit warmer than Essie French Affair. I like it better!

So what did DBF say when I showed him the two swatched side by side?

"I can't tell the difference... But you have to keep them both."

!!! MEN! Hahaha :)

I will probably purge French Affair later this year. He didn't notice when I purged OPI Panda-monium Pink or Mod About You, and he looooved those ones too :p


  1. I have French Affair, but I found the formula on all the polishes in that collection really chalky and difficult.  I had no intention of buying Raise Awareness, but all the bloggers talking about how great the formula is is making me think I should pick it up.  A true baby pink (or any pastel) with a great formula is a rare find.

  2. They look exactly the same to me! I don't think your BF will notice if French Affair goes missing.

  3. I really love this shade. It looks great on you! Good eye with the possible dupes :)

  4. I understand why your boyfriend wants to see you in pinks, this is lovely on you!

  5. It looks so-o-o pretty on you! Gorgeous!

  6. WOW those colours are extremely similar! However, I love them both and I agree that you should wear baby pinks because they look great on you

  7. Haha, he just likes pink in the bottle, I think!!

  8. hahaha, I think he likes the name more than anything else!

  9. The formula is really like those "jelly-cremes" that Essie has been pumping out lately. It's still not perfect, imo, but probably the best for a baby pink like this that I've tried so far. It's worth a try, in any case!

  10. These look fab on you!  Mmm, candy pink nails!  :D

  11. I have both! I'd say keep both because raise awareness is seasonal!!!

I'll ask incase there's a think tank of lacquer folk that you are a part of. Do you know where I can find a pink the same color as essie sugar daddy (more or less) that will be opaque in 3 coats or less? Last night it took me 6 or 8 coasts and that's crazy talk.
