This nail polish is reminds me of sexy, victoria's secret, royal blue, satin lingerie. That sounds insanely creepy, but that's what my brain came up with. Sorry if that offended you, but don't let me deter you away from this polish. It is GORGEOUS. It is opaque in 1 coat, but I like to add a second because I feel like if I don't, it won't be right. Two coats is generally good for all good quality nail polishes. Essie polishes aren't the best at chip-prevention, but hey, you're not buying this for wear and tear, you're wearing this for a statement. Be warned, people will notice your nails (in a good way of course!). Go check this out if you're a lover of blues and being noticed.

A beautiful navy blue with tiny specs of blue and purple sparkle (on the nails it just looks like a sheeny finish). Nice application and lasting power. I've only worn this color once and I got compliments on it, so it must be good, right? ; )

Such a fab color!! I find Essie nail polishes a hit and miss in terms of formula and how easy application is. This one is a hit.

What a gorgeous colour. It really is something that will give your nails some attention. Very glamorous royal blue with the most beautiful metallic shine! As soon as I saw this alongside the other essie polishes it immediately caught my eye, and I just had to get it. Really nice, very beautiful, quick drying, generally quite a nice product. :-)

I love the color but only as a color I would use for a pedicure.

gorgeous royal blue with shimmer and a lot of dimension. stands out wonderfully and makes a real statement. such an uplifting colour! reminds me of that really rich blue you see in the sky sometimes at night.
this only needs 2 coats as well and staying power is good.

i bought it for my toes, and on my toes is where it stays. i'm a guitar player, so i don't ever paint my fingernails. But it looks awesome on my feet! :D

Love this classy royal blue color! I will upload a picture (mine is with one nail on each hand being silver/glittery). My boyfriend bought me this today and I fell in love immediately. The pigmentation is great! Such a deep, opaque, rich royal blue that would look great for this upcoming summer season. I would highly recommend grabbing it.

Beautiful. The colour is sensational -bright and shimmery, it applies wonderfully and lasts longer than some of my other essie polishes. My favourite royal blue by far.

Well, I got Aruba Blue by Essie because it was on sale for $7 at the drugstore and this color was the only one standing out from the bunch. I own a few of this brand and really love it. I displayed this shiny mettalic cobalt blue for about a full day's worth, but all in all I do prefer the tamed version in matte finish for sure. The image above is quite true to what I have on my nails.
I also own "Co-Bolt" blue by Sally Hansen which is identical to Aruba Blue, but I like Essie's formula better and it didn't take me too long to get the touch ups done.
It dried quick, the color usually would last about 5 days to a week, with base/top coats. I've seen it in all types of skin tones and it really looks edgy,fresh and fun. I find that this color actually attracts chatty people and thanks goodness banishes those tedious people away from you. *laughs. I love it!!! I even dare to say Aruba Blue is one of the top 10 must haves colors, but I personally I would keep my nails short and use matte top coat.
Trivia: Glee fans know about Tina (played by Jenna Ushkowitz) loving this color.
