NOTD: Essie Aruba Blue


I have to say I am really loving the ads Essie has had out the last little while. The one with the pink polish on the marshmallow totally made me buy Sugar Daddy (unfortunately, it's a sheer.) And, they ultimately got me to grab Aruba Blue as well. My mom saw the ad in Glow and asked if I had it. When I replied with a no she thought I should. Now, it's not like it takes much to sway me into a polish purchase, so of course the next time I was near an Essie display I picked this one up.


Aruba Blue is a deep (deeper in real life than in my photos) yet vivid blue with glowing slightly reflective glitter. What type of blue is it? Well... it is a cross between a navy and a bright cobalt. There is some shift to the tone depending on the lighting you are in. The colour is stunning on. I've been wearing it on my toes so I can see it all the time. I love it! It is reminiscent of deep gorgeous water.

I love blues and I don't think I'll ever stop looking for the next "best" thing. What blue shade is your fave?
