Essie Aruba Blue Nail Polish Review and Comparisons

*PR Product- Essie very kindly gifted me this nail polish

Essie Aruba Blue is part of the permanent collection. I did have a search around to see if I could find any information on what collection this was originally released in, but couldn’t find anything.

Essie describes this shade as a frosty sapphire blue with metallic shimmer effect. This is such a vibrant blue shade and the metallic shimmer really catches the light. This nail polish is a great shade for wearing during the winter months.

Essie Aruba Blue is a very different blue colour to what I would usually go for. I’m really happy I have this shade in my collection, as I really like it and it’s so different to what I already have. Before I wore this nail polish, I wasn’t sure if it would suit my light skin tone, but I was pleasantly surprised it does work. 

This has a lovely formula, which applies really well. It gets fully opaque in two coats. As this nail polish has lots of the metallic shimmer running through it, you don’t have to worry about trying to make sure it evenly distributes.

I don’t have other blue nail polishes like this one in my collection. So I am comparing it to two other Essie blue nail polishes I have in my collection, so you can see the different kinds of blues they are. As you can see they are all quite different blue colours.

This is available to buy from Boots UKLookfantastic UKFeelunique £7.99.

Leave me a comment below. What do you think to this shade? Have you got this one in your collection?
