Essie Just Caught My Attention! And Then Let Me Down...

"One of these things is not like the other ones..."

Just got an Essie mailer about their Life's a Beach collection. I'll admit. I really pay next to zero attention to Essie but they sure had my attention when I saw Aruba Blue in their little swatch! But low and behold - my sudden excitement was much ado about nothing because apparently it's a standard shade. Not knowing Essie I did not know this. How depressing! The thing that got me excited was a permanent shade. And looking at swatches, it's not nearly as sparkly as that fake little swatch. Hmmm. Oh well. Back to being a little underwhelmed.
