Essie Aruba Blue

The verdict is in: my wisdom teeth are coming out tomorrow. Blech. This is my first surgery, if you can even call it that, so in order to lighten the mood, I wanted to test a fun color for today. Cue Essie Aruba Blue.

Ba-Zing! Whatever that means. I really like this blue; I've only ever worn it on my toes, but today I tried it on my fingers. It's a frosty shimmer, and not metallic, but in some lights it appears to be. My only gripe is that the formula is a little streaky, and leaves some brushstrokes.

Above is indoors with no top coat, below is outdoors in the sun with a coat of Seche Vite.

Pretty, right? Aruba Blue is from the Essie Island in the Sun Collection, but I'm not sure when it was released.


  1. Good luck with your surgery!! You'll be fine. I had all four of mine out at the same time too. I just slept a lot, and the pain wasn't so bad. After the first couple of days I felt normal again.

    I LOVE this polish. It looks great on you. It's been on my list to get since it came out!

  2. Very pretty ! This polish was in my wish list for a while, but now I have some new ones....LOL
    It's beautiful on you !

  3. Very pretty! Good luck with your surgery; I hope all goes well!
