American Apparel - Manila

APPLICATION: Streaky - like many yellows
COATS: 2 - I made the second one much thicker than the first and it settled/leveled well.
TOPCOAT?: No
SOURCE: American Apparel Online store (though there is a store within a mile of where I work - I just can't take the time in my work day to get to it!
COMMENTS: I've heard so much about the great formula on these polishes, so I was disappointed when this started out streaky. I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt though - since it's a yellow. It did clean up easily and the color is saturated, gorgeous, and shiny! Well worth it, I think. All photos taken in morning light outdoors. Have a beautiful day!






UP NEXT: Something green...

  3. I really like this! I have far too few yellows because I feel like most of them are not unique...but I've never seen something like this one before!

  4. I love this yellow. It'd be prettier is a little bit lighter, since I'm not a fan of dark, bright colors. If that makes sense. xD
