essie Aruba Blue The Daily Varnish

essie Aruba Blue The Daily VarnishFinally after years and years of admiring Aruba Blue from afar it has landed in my collection. After seeing it used in several shows this past NYFW I just had to have it. And I have to say it didn’t disappoint.

Essie describes this as paradise in a bottle and I’d have to agree!

Aruba Blue is a bright, frosty sapphire blue. This is one of those polishes that just glows on the nails. It is absolutely gorgeous.

The formula is a bit on the thin side but not difficult to work with. I used 3 coats in my swatches.

I’m so glad I finally picked this polish up. This is an all seasons color and is what I would call a new classic.

Aruba Blue is part of essie’s permanent collection so it’s easy to find at Nordstrom and on Amazon.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump!

    I just picked this one up last week. I too have been an admirer of this beauty. I haven’t swatched or worn this yet. But I’m thinking this will make a great start to the weekend.

    I have had this in my collection of blues forever. and I still go back to it, instead of reaching for my many untried blues! I like to pair this with Essie Barbados Blue for a summer mani-pedi that evokes a tropical beach. Glad you are enjoying this beauty- it looks gorgeous on you!

    This is just gorgeous. I’ll have to see if I can find it next time I’m at my pharmacy.
