So, last Friday I went to ULTA and did not find the OPI Alice In Wonderland collection there. I did find the Orly Bloom collection and made a few selections, as well as the Essie Art of Spring (see my Neo Whimsical and Van d'Go posts). When browsing the regular shelves, I caught a glimpse of the most beautiful, metallic, dark cobalt blue: Essie Aruba Blue.
Wow!! It is kind of similar to Mesmerize but it's a metallic version of cobalt. I tried it this past weekend during my brief swatching session and snapped an indoor pic. It's luscious! It's divine! WOW!
I am not sure why it's called 'Aruba' Blue. Maybe inspired by a blue hole dive spot or something? That's why the dark blue?
For some reason, I have been craving blues. Are they suddenly popular and seeping into my subconscious mind?? At any rate, I hadn't seen Essie Aruba Blue before, and I don't know where it came from, but yay! I can't wear to wear this beauty.
