This is Adoree Harbour Blue compared with Essie Aruba Blue
HB is on the index and ring and AB is on middle and pinky. Can you tell the difference? There is one, but it's very, very slight. Aruba Blue has a bit more of a pearly finish, which lends itself to being a bit brushstroke-y. Also, going on, Harbour Blue has more of a blue-green base, but after 2 coats, it is the exact same shade as AB.
Now, I love AB, but I honestly have to say that I think I love HB more. However, I will probably keep AB as it's one of my dautghters favorite colors and the Essie brush is easier to use on her nails.
This is my first time using Adoree polishes and I really like them. The formula is very nice, and the brush is easy to use. I can't wait to swatch the other Adorees I picked up. Unfortunately, the sale is now off and the polishes have been raised in price again, to $6. According to Polish or Perish, Esther's Nail Center will sentd you brushstrock samples of polishes. You can also get a gift with purchase if you mention you are a PoP reader (check PoP for more info).
