American Apparel isn't a store that I normally shop at, but I decided to pop in one day and check out their line of polish. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality.
My friend and I tried on a few of their creams and these were the colors I ended up with: Passport Blue and Lopez Canyon. My favorite thing about these is that they are true one-coaters! My second favorite thing is how rich these two colors are. I especially like the orange because it's a less prominent polish color. The blue is just a dream too. The formula is amazing.
Here's the completed manicure that I did with them. It's based off one I saw on Chalkboard Nails. I'm pretty addicted to dots, so when I saw it, I knew I'd be doing some variation of it!
Here's a swatch of Lopez Canyon, one coat with no top coat.
Look how shiny it is on its own! I just love this color on me.
Passport blue is a little more sheer than Lopez Canyon. I still only needed one coat when I wore it before, but it had to be a tiny bit thicker. Here I sponged it on and it worked really well.
Winter here is drying my hands out! Ahh! I immediately reached for my OPI Avoplex hand cream after I edited these pictures. I'm going to be using it and some lotion I picked up from Trader Joe's pretty constantly now!
I definitely wouldn't pass up a few more bottles of this polish. I've got my eye on their greens!
Thanks for reading!
