Essie - Aruba Blue

Today I have another stunning polish to show you.

Aruba Blue is vibrant cobalt blue shimmer polish from Essie's core collection. It's gorgeous and looks so great in both low light and sunlight.

The formula is good and application was easy. It was almost opaque in 1 coat, but I gave it a second one for full opacity. Drying time was not that impressive though, but a fast drying top coat fixed that.

Here it is with 1 layer of top coat in natural light.

And in sunlight.

At some point I saw someone who had stamped on a dark blue polish with silver and it looked really good, so I wanted to try that and fortunately I just got some new stamping plates from MoYou London.

I stamped with a silver stamping polish from Dashica and MoYou plate Pro Collection 05.

Here it is with top coat in natural light.

And in sunlight.

I really think it looks great!
