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.

Great colour... I normally wear Blue Satin from Chanel when I wear blue but this is a nice option too - it's more fresh than the other one, but I'm just very conservative when it comes to nails. I prefer them in balck, navy, red or french manicured which is why I don't rate this higher...

Great color. Very happy with this purchase. Now, I'm in my mid thirties and still wear all the fun and crazy colors on my nails. I think as long as the nails are short, anyone can get away with fun colors! Aruba Blue is a vibrant deep jewel toned blue with a very slight sheen of pearl in it. For some reason, this blue seems to look somewhat sophisticated and the shade is very easy to pull off. I really love the formula of this np. The color went on very even with no streaks. The pigment in the np is outstanding. I got true to the bottle color with 2 coats. The np itself is glossy and you could get away without a topcoat if you are in a rush.

Yowza, this is a beautiful colour. Sapphire blue with a shot of metallic sheen running through it. I used to think blue nails were kind of tacky, but now I love it. I always get compliments when I wear this- looks best on shorter nails, IMO.

I was looking for an electric, shocking blue that I saw in a clothing ad. And though I'm not sure if this was the color, it's still a keeper! It's a gorgeous blue that reflects in the light. It's SO pretty! You can get it at Target, which is very convenient.
Chipping is not an issue for me. I've had it on my toes for a really long time (lazy lol) and it's only starting to chip.

Really intense sapphire blue, easy to apply, opaque in one coat w/out any streaking. Lasted on my toes for 2 wks!
