I’m a nail polish junkie. Every weekend, I have my sacred “me time” routine of watching a movie or something and painting my nails. This week, I’m wearing Essie’s Aruba Blue on my nails. Its a gorgeous deep blue with greenish navy undertones. It also has blue microshimmer. Its not royal blue or electric blue like China Glaze Frostbite; more towards navy. Its quite opaque. But you do need 2 coats. It’s has a nice sheen to it, even without a topcoat. Adding one just makes it super glossy. It lasts for atleast 5 days without chipping. The consistency is somewhere in between, not too creamy.
I’m biased towards blue and purple nail polishes. I love this! I wear it atleast once a month. It was my first Essie polish as well. It looks really bright in sunlight.
As you can see in the last pic, its much darker indoors.
