American Apparel Nail Polishes…

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 8 - 2010

…only a teeny haul!

It was 3 for £12… and there were 3 further colours I was tempted by, but I’m not convinced of the quality so held off splurging further until I’d given these a try!

L-R: Mouse, Peacock, Factory Grey.

I wore Peacock to the Sleek event, and whilst I love the colour… I wasn’t too enamoured of the formula which was a bit gloopy.

I would have a NOTD for you but I fractured 2 of my nails whilst bowling (of course) so have given them all a much needed prune instead!

Have you tried the American Apparel polishes yet?

    I had no idea American Apparel did nail polishes! I love the look of Mouse, so I might have to check them out now :)

  2. They’re on my to do list! haha. I actually thought I ordered some a while ago, when I ordered a top from there, but I never added them to my basket, was just drooling obviously. I wasn’t happy when only my top arrived and even emailed them lmao… Im such a nob!

    mmmm love the shape of the bottle and the font/lettering, and the colour of peacock: very warm greige.

    ooh – like the grey – wonder if it looks as good on as it does in the bottle….?

    I love the AA nail polishes! SUCH beautiful colors! In fact, I just got another three today, and was JUST about to post about them 😀 The texture is okay to good, it’s just a matter of handling it well. I’ve seen reviews abt Office that don’t apply to my experience with its texture at all. Can’t wait to try out the new colors I got.

  6. I have Mouse and LOVE it. I think you might love it too and, at least for me, the formula is not gloopy at all (sorry about Peacock–it’s a lovely shade though). :)

    I’m concentrating on European brands and polishes available in shops. I’ve looked at these and nearly bought them. I love the packaging. I definitely would if I hadn’t made a policy decision to go local not global.

  9. Boo, Peacock looks so nice :(

    I didn’t know they did nail polishes actually! I really really love the look of all 3 of those shades, especially the greyish ones, they’re beautiful!
