A few weeks ago (notice how my purchases take so long to be posted? Lol) I had a discount code for American Apparel so....I succumbed to the temptation and picked up a few things :D
Got a 3 pack of bandeaus, a 3 pack of nailpolish, and their long sleeve criss cross dress in navy.
From left to right the polishes are: L'esprit, Malibu Green, and Butter, all from their summer collection.
So far I've tried L'esprit and Butter, which are quite pigmented and have a thick consistency. I only needed 2 thick coats for L'esprit. I used Butter on my toes and it is a little more streaky, so I had to use 3 coats in the end. Still, only two would be needed if you are careful.
I haven't tried Malibu Green yet, but I do wish I could exchange it for another colour, since Temptalia said Malibu Green stains quite a bit even with a base coat.
Here's a look at L'esprit:
I thought it looked a bit boring so I had a misguided idea to use a holo polish on top - but it turned out rather lame and maybe a bit childish looking:
This definitely does not do either polish justice - I hope to redeem that in a week or two when my nails have recovered. They seem to be rather dry at the moment...a combination of frequent polish removal and dishwashing sans gloves.
