I'm back in NYC after a week in Aruba! After a long cold winter and too many hours of work, Aruba was just what I needed to lift my spirits. The colors were so vivid and incredible - the sea and the sky were so blue and all the plants were so green.
I giggled when I saw this "MAC IS COMING" sign on a storefront in Oranjestad :)
What polishes did I choose for Aruba? On my toes I wore China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, and on my fingers I wore the incredibly long-lasting American Apparel Neon Red!!!

I have already raved about the lasting power of American Apparel Neon Red, one of three neons I won from April at Concrete and Nail Polish. A few weeks ago, I wore this color (4) days without any chips and knew this would be the perfect polish for Aruba!
Here's how American Apparel Neon Red looked (8) days after I applied it:
Pretty sweet, right? My left hand nails are more accurate of how my right hand should have looked had I not picked away at the tips on the airplane on the way home (the polish started to lift away in a few places enough to slide my nail under... it was too tempting to resist). I'm really impressed how well this polish holds up... eight days may be a new record for me :) Oh, and the base/top coat combo (aka magic recipe?) was Orly Ridgefiller and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.
