China Glaze’s Awaken

There's more cool steel grey than blue in this shade - and the spreadability is kind of bad. The polish shows brushstrokes fairly prominently. For all-over manicures I'll stick with Zoya's Freja, which is about the same color. This will work quite well for nail stamping, though.
