Essie "Your Hut or Mine" gets Literal in Aruba
Essie "Your Hut or Mine" is a perfectly appropriate polish to finish what has turned out to be Aruba week :) One of the great features about the beaches in Aruba (after the turquoise water and white sand, of course) is that picturesque huts offer shady relief from the tropical sun. I know I was able to enjoy the beach a lot more because I was able to take breaks from the sun :)
"Your Hut or Mine" is from Essie's 2011 Resort Collection. This peachy-pink polish is unlike any of the other pinks in my collection - it's muted without being dull or "old" looking. And the subtle splash of warm shimmer adds a lively touch to this chic shade.
I picked up this polish at Cosmetic Market on 37th between 5th and Madison, which is another store I can thank reader bigiyedfish on MUA for informing me of (pssst: it's now listed on the Gotham Polish map!) Cosmetic Market deserves it's own dedicated post... but briefly, random Essie polishes are $3.50. I noticed after I got home that this polish bottle is without the signature raised "Essie" text - it's completely bare on all four sides! The cap still has the salon-version "e".... oh well, perhaps this is why it was $3.50 :)
I hope you've enjoyed some pictures from my recent trip to Aruba!
