I meant to post this yesterday, but some idiot (me) spilled water all over my keyboard and mouse. One trip to the Apple store later, I'm good to go.
When I originally went to American Apparel to buy their nail lacquer, the bottles had been recalled. I waited until they restocked to go back. I bought four bottles: Passport Blue (navy), Office (mint green), Mouse (gray/taupe), and Pinto (brick red). The Passport Blue and Office were gifts for a friend, so I only tried on Mouse and Pinto. I might go back and get the Passport Blue and Office for myself too though, along with a few other colors. Since I've only bought something like four bottles of nail polish since high school, I can totally justify the cost!
First of all, I'll say that I love the colors. You can view all of them here. However, I had a really hard time applying this stuff to my nails without making it look like a drunk hobo did it for me! I'll be the first to admit that I'm not great at painting my nails, but I'd say this particular polish made it much harder than normal. It's very thick and pretty much dries right away, so you have to get it right immediately. You can't push it around on your nail until it looks good. That said, I've read reviews online that say it's good quality stuff. I won't dispute that, but I just think it's hard to use. I don't mind taking it to a manicurist though. Cheap manicures are one great perk of living in New York.
