I swatched all 14 shades of American Apparel nail polishes that I have in my stash and today I’m going to show them to you. There’s a lot of photos in this article, so please be patient while the article loads the photos. Thank you!

Formula on these is on the runny side. The brush is nice, though it’s a bit long and I can never get just the right amount of polish on it. I always get either too much on the brush or too little. All the shades that I have are very well pigmented. And what I love about American Apparel polishes is, they dry very fast.

What do you think about the American Apparel polishes? Do you like them? Which color is your favorite?

  1. Berry, Hunter, Mouse in Dynasty so mi taki srčkani odtenki :wub: Obožujem vse po vrsti.
    Army Jacket ti res lepo sede na ten kože. Dobra izbira :thumb:

  2. Prekrasni odtenki! :biggrin:
    Ne bi se branila Army Jacket, Dynasty, Hunter…
    seveda ob tvoji pomoči… :cute:

  3. Mount Royal, Rose Bowl, Peacock me najbolj pritegnejo da bi jih jaz nosila, mi je pa Mac Arthur Park tudi zelo všeč samo žal ne bi šel na moj ten kože. Nimam še nobenega AA laka, si mi pa zdaj naredila velike ‘lušte’ po njih… :ccc:

  4. :w00t: :w00t: :w00t: Kakšne barve, kakšni odtenki :w00t: Kdo bi rekel, da gredo v skupino AA? :haha: :haha:

    Težko se odločim kdo je moj favorit ampak Hunter, Berry in Mount Royal definitivno zmagajo. Drugače so pa vsi krasni. Res lepo, da si naredila swatche in nam bralkam naredila lušte in podaljšala sezname :wub:

  5. Mislim, da je tu zajeta moja praktično komplet American Apparel WL. Tam kraljuje Army Jacket, seveda, vedela sem, da bo popoln na tvojih nohtih. :wub: Pa Dynasty, Peacock, Hunter, me je pa Factory Grey presenetil, zelo mi je všeč! Super zbirko AA imaš!

  6. I like Rose bowl, Peacock and Mouse the most. Manila is also nice, and they all seem very pretty. Thank you for the swatches, now I want them all :)

  7. Oh my I am in love with the Peacock one so much. I really like the Dynasty one too! I hope I can find these. :)

  9. That camel colour is really great, love it! I also like the yellow “Manila”, it’s a great tone of yellow. It looks similar to Deborah Pret-A-Porter Yellow Fiz, maybe a bit darker. All in all I love all your picks!
