An ode to my favorite blue

I've always been against using frosted colors simply because I was traumatized by those pearl frost that chip after the first day. Yes, those pearl frosts that make darker skin tones look ashy after the second or third day. For some unexplainable reason I was feeling especially adventurous when I picked up Aruba Blue. Let me just tell you since that first manicure with this frosty- yes frosty- blue, I have since purchased three more bottles. I have golden skin thanks to my mixes ethnicity and I was scared this color wold make my cuticles and knuckles dark but no it did no such things. It radiates off of my nails like the deep ocean. I kid you not, this color can never be captured in a photo because it will most likely break the lens from its luminous brilliance. Ladies Aruba Blue is a color you must have in your arsenal no matter what color pudding you are. Vanilla, butterscotch, or dark chocolate can all benefit from this underestimated blue. Take it from me, Essie nail'D it with this one!!!!

This is one of my absolute favorites of my Essie collection!!! I am SO glad that I got this color. The blue is such an irreplaceable, extraordinary, moonlit shade. And most brands I buy that are shimmery like this are hard to get off, but all Essie nail polish comes off very well. One coat isn't quite enough to make it last, but two coats does it fine. I didn't know it would be so shimmery when I bought it, but now I love it! Thanks for the great unique blue, Essie!

When I went and picked out my first bottle of Essie I was bit skeptical. But as a woman who has tried multiple brands and types of polishes I must say that Essie wins every time! Ballet slipper is a favorite and I would highly recommend it as it goes so well with every skin type. I chose this shade (Turquoise & Caicos) to write my review on because it was the first bottle I purchased. But honestly I recommend all of there polish and here are some of the reasons why: Essie provides a wide range and variety of classy colors that any girly girl or not so girly girl could desire. The bottles are shaped for easy storage and come filled with the perfect amount of polish! The polish itself is creamy, dries well and is long lasting leaving your glossy "in-home" manicure looking professional, lacking nothing. I recommend this product! You should try it, you will feel the same way!

This is the best nail polish I have ever used. At the age of 69 I have tried them all I have long nails and the first time I used the Essie polish I expected 3 days of wear but it lasted 8 days.

I got this for my birthday a couple months ago, and I absolutely love it. The formula is perfect, it looks beautiful with 2 coats. It's kind of a muted turquoise so it's not too bright. It lasted a long time too, I'm a swimmer and it lasted for 2 weeks without chipping even with being in water for a long time every day. This is my favourite nail polish.

After purchasing mint candy apple and being extremely happy with it, I decided to give this one a try because of the reviews. It was love at first sight! This looks even prettier than it does in the photos, and I loved the way it covered my nails. It is long-lasting and gives the perfect coat. I loved it because of the shimmer and the beautiful pure blue color. When I picked it up, I literally jumped for joy! This pairs really well with mint candy apple (right now I am using Mint Candy Apple as a base and the Aruba Blue dotted on top) and can be used for any occasion. The shade also goes really nicely with almost every color of clothing, so that is never a problem. Essie is a quality brand with polishes definitely worth your money and I will be buying many more!

This is my absolute favorite Essie color EVER. The photo on the site does not do the color justice. It's a creamy turquoise with blue undertones, not quite the green shown here and on other sites. The upside is that Turquoise & Caicos is perfect for every season- it pairs well with spring florals, it's an obvious choice for the beach, it can be mixed with yellows, burgundies and golds for fall and used along with reds and whites for the winter. It's also very flattering on most skin tones. I use it and I have fair skin with pinkish tones, a friend of mine who is Latina has gorgeous tan skin and it looks amazing on her, and another friend has an olive complexion but it works great for her, too! I recommend it to everyone and I always gets compliments on my nail color when I wear it.

Just your basic black nail polish- no big deal. In terms of quality, I will say that it goes on a lot smoother than other cheaper nail polishes out there, and has a lot of shine so for that I’ll give you four stars. Also pairs well with just about any other color (my favorites are the reds and pinks for a nice contrast) or on its own.

I bought this polish because I was dying to wear a darker color, even though it was the summer months. Since black is chic all-year long, I thought it would be a great new polish. I was not disappointed! This has to be one of my absolute favorite polishes of all! Even though the website describes this color as a dark grey, but it definitely looks black on the nails. However, this has an extra element of chic by having subtle, silver micro-shimmer/flecks. When you put a top coat over this, it is glossy perfection! I normally change polish colors between two to three days, but I wore this for five days before I wanted to change it! If you are wanting a black polish, this is the PERFECT choice!

Normally I'm not one to choose black nail polish I love having bright colors on my nails, but there is just something different about this and all I need was one coat which makes everything always better since I'm not a fan of painting my nails and am very impatient so if a nail polish needs to many coats I'm over it and take it off. Also the time it took for these to dry was awesome. So Essie thanks for having such awesome nail polishs I think I will be painting my nails more now and going back to buy more very soon.

I have found that this is a great polish that gives good coverage with surprising depth in only a couple of coats. There is just a hint of a shimmer to the polish, distinguishing it from similar matte or flat polishes, which gives it a more dynamic look than I was expecting. Paired with a good top coat, it makes for a solid, long lasting color that is appropriate for both the office and the bar. I like to pair it up with my boots and leather jacket when I am heading out.

I have been searching for a brand of nail polish that doesn't come of with my everyday wear and tear and this is it! This nail polish not only stays on, but it looks great and dries fast! This is the perfect nail polish for moms that doing dishes daily on top of bathing their kids!

My ex boyfriend bought me this nail polish color about two years ago (when we were dating obviously) and I was really surprised because he has always seen me with more modest shades (not sparkly at all!). Anyways, I was very sketchy about this shade until last week when I decided to give it a try, it's not as if it's permanent or anything.. aaaand I really liked it! the color is dramatic yet fun and eye-catching, it was really easy to apply it since it's very flowy, non-sticky, non-gooey (thank God!)...I see a lot of women with this color also, day or night, although for me preferably wear it at night, for clubbing or what not :)

I was searching for the perfect "Jasmine" color and came across this! It's a lot greener than a lot of swatch photos suggest, but I love it all the same! The jelly finish is also adorable, even though it takes 3-4 coats to become opaque (i use really thin first coats though). I absolutely love this polish--in fact I'm going to do a pedi with it now :)) this also looks wonderful with hot coral! I also think this works with most (if not all) skintones..I'm light/medium with yellow/warm undertones :3 Hope this helps! <3

I'm on my second bottle and really love this color. The polish is easy to apply when new (not too thin or thick), but like all polishes, it gets gunky with age. Mine didn't last much more than a year before needing to be replaced. Hope Essie continues to make this color -- no one else has one that's close to it.
