Essie - Aruba Blue

Happy Saturday everyone!

The nail polish I have for you today has been around for a while but I only discovered it recently and fell in love with it from the minute I painted the first coat onto my nails. I am talking about Essie Aruba Blue. This is an amazing cobalt blue with intense shimmer.


I found this beauty while browsing the new Essie rack in my local DM drugstore. Initially I had only planned to buy Navigate Her from their recent Spring collection but when I saw this vibrant blue I just had to take it with me since blue is one of my favorite nail polish colors. And I don't regret it! Aruba Blue applied like a dream and was completely opaque with two coats. The only little letdown was the new wide brush, which I like in general but this one is almost a bit too wide for my pinkie nail. Well, I am not sure how new this brush really is as I do not own many Essies but the ones I own have a small round brush. Apart from this I am absolutely in love with this intense shimmery blue! The photos above were taken in my lightbox and as much as I love it, the indirect lighting swallows a lot of the shimmer in polishes so I got me a third lamp that I use for direct lighting. This really brings out the shimmer in Aruba Blue very nicely.

Now that Essie finally teamed up with a big German drugstore I might be getting more of their polishes. In the past I never paid much attention to their products as they were rather pricey and the shades didn't really tempt me. Recently they seem to have released quite a few pretty polishes though so Aruba Blue won't be the last Essie that will make it to my stash ;)

Now I will go out and enjoy the sun as it is a beautiful sunny Spring day over here. 
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
