The formula turned out pretty great (goes on smoothly, enough coverage with 2 coats) but it's just SO DARK it looks black! I guess if I had done my research I would have been aware.. 123
I spotted this colour when it came out and had never been able to find it in a retail store. I'm extremely happy with my purchase. It is the perfect dark navy blue. Looks great on its own, with a matte top coat and in several other different nail art techniques. 123
Thought it was going to be more blue as in the pictures, but it is more black. I still love the color and would recommend Essie to everyone. 123
I didn't expect it to be as dark as it was. The swatches are accurate, but I didn't take in to account the lighting.
I found that in normal lighting (home / office) it looked almost black and I'd have been hard pressed to say it is a dark navy.
However - I used Aruba Blue as the first coat and After School Boy Blazer as the second coat it made a huge difference. Even in normal home lighting I could tell it was not black.
I think any dark-ish blue as a first coat would work.
Total disclosure: I read this tip some place else and can't recall where. 123
