I’ve never once graced an American Apparel. We have one locally, but I must admit, nothing has ever enticed me into a store. I wasn’t aware they did polish until I received one in a swap and they have a huge range online, including sheers, glitters and neons. It comes in a very tall and thing rectangular bottle with your average non curved brush.
Office is a minty green colour that we have seen a lot of in the nail world this year. Its more green than blue, and its a surprisingly wearable colour. Its not so in your face that it would look out of place in an office. What you see in the images below is three thin coats.
I did thin coats and pale, pastel colours can have a tendency to drag. This wasn’t too bad, formula was a tad on the runny side and so I needed to be careful not to overload the brush. But opacity built up really well and I’m pleased with the final colour. I used Seche Retain as my base coat and topped it off with a generous coating of Hong Kong Girl Top Coat.
This would be an excellent base for a glitter top coat or for any Nail Stamping you might want to do.
What other American Apparel shades should I seek out? I’d love to know what your favourites are so please leave me a comment below.
