This is my first Essie nail polish, I simply adore OPI and Chanel. Forgot to bring nail polish on a sleep over and went to a drug store and Essie was the only quality brand they had. Aruba Blue is a gorgeous blue which really stands out due to the brightness of it. I can see this working on all skin tones. It's a happy, royal and charming colour. Every time I wear it I receive a compliment. The Essie brush is quite wide which makes for an easy application. You could get away with one coat but I love two coats. It has a high sheen so you don't have to use a top coat if you use top coat for sheen. I'm very pleased with the purchase and wear it often.

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. :-)

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.
definitely repurchasing!

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.
