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
