NOTD: China Glaze Awaken

It’s fun to go through the untrieds pile, but sometimes I just have to go back to some old favorites. Like this one, China Glaze Awaken from the Romantique collection.

I got this from Kicks this summer, and it was an instant favorite. It’s a rich, deep charcoal metallic, but the color is not just grey. In some lights, it almost looks blue or purple, and it reminds me of a pigeon’s feathers. Lovely.

Application is good, just like the other Romantiques it covers excellently. You don’t need more than one coat, but if you have unsteady hands like me, you’d probably want to even things out with a second coat. It’s extremely proned to streaking, so if you’re a perfectionist, forget about it. ;)
