Essie’s Aruba Blue

PhotoGrid_1361503188270I absolutely love Essie nail polish! It is by far the best brand of polish I’ve used, and  I am no professional by any means, hence the shoddy job I did. Essie nail polish consistency is really thick, and two coats will always do the job. I chose Aruba Blue because blue is my favorite color. The moment I saw it, I fell in love. I was a bit hesitant because I wasn’t sure how it would look against my skin complexion, but I was pleased with how it turned out. Aruba Blue is a very pigmented color, as are all of the Essie nail polishes that I’ve tried. This brand is on the more expensive side, but it’s definitely worth it. It’s long-lasting, the colors turn out amazing, and there is such a variety to choose from. It’s obvious that I’d recommend this brand, but I’d also recommend trying this color. I believe that this shade of blue can be worn year-round. So, give it a shot; I think you may fall in love with it, too.

I have really become quite the fan of maxi dresses and skirts, but I can’t seem to find a maxi dress that I truly like. Some of the maxi dresses I’ve tried on are too thin and show just about everything I own. Others weren’t flattering, or had ugly designs. However, I seem to have luck finding nice maxi skirts. The one below is definitely one of my favorites. It’s very festive, and paired quite nicely with the blue blouse. Since the skirt possesses so much spunk, I chose a black bag, belt and sandals. I picked these earrings because the design on them reminded me of the design on my skirt.
