I wish Essie would update its formula - the colors are beautiful! It's always a disappointment to be unable to actually get the same color onto my nail, and even worse to watch it get ruined in a matter of hours.
I think this color is PERFECT for the fall! I'm normally a warm-toned nail polish wearer, but I think this looks absolutely beautiful on the nails.
Essie's polish formula is a hit or miss at times, but this polish is definitely a hit. Goes on super smooth, not streaky, opaque in two coats, and wears great ! I use Health Hoof Lacquer Top Coat atop this nail polish and it holds up just the same as other polishes. That's good considering I pick at my nails, am always drying them out with hand sanitizer, wash my hands frequently, and don't really care to "preserve" my manicure.
All in all, DEFINITELY pick up this nail polish if you're looking for a grey/blueish toned polish :) I'll be wearing this color all year around when I want to give myself a change from my normal nude colors.
The price is medium range: I paid $6 for mine.
BALLET SLIPPERS is lovely light pink, delicate, and very feminine. It's perfect for young girls, bridesmaids, brides, appropriate for Church and formal gatherings.
My skin toe is more olive and I always loved blue polish on other people. Have purchased at least 6 different shades of blue in the past (Opi or Essie) but after one try gave them to my daughter who’s skin tone is peaches and cream. But Aruba blue works perfectly with my olive skin tone.
I typically have a harder time applying Essie because of the thinner brush for my manicures. But I have to say that it a very easy and accurate toe nail application.
My home done pedicure lasted just over two weeks
Update. One of my dear friends simply adored my Aruba Blue pedi. So I gave her my bottle. I am now wearing my go to summer color - opi Cajun Shrimp but....I already miss my Aruba Blue toes. I’ll have to pick up another bottle
