American Apparel Butter


American Apparel Butter (2 coats)

While in Seattle a few weeks ago I had an American Apparel on the same block as my hotel. So the day I arrived I had to scope out the polishes, right? They had some really nice colors and they were $6 each or 3 for $15 so I, of course, bought 3. I really like the bottle shape (they remind me of the old Massini bottles) since they are the skinny square ones. I'm going to start out the reviews by saying that I really do like their polishes, but I do not condone the practices of their owner (based on their ads, his attitude toward employees, etc.). Ok, that's all I'm going to say about that. On with the review! Up first is Butter which is aptly named because it looks (and applies!) like butter! It is a pale yellow creme that actually goes fine with my skintone. The formula on this one is fairly thick, but in a good way, I swear! Just make sure to use thin coats and you'll have no problem. For a yellow polish, I had no problem with streaking or anything like that. This is seriously the second time I've had a yellow polish apply well (the other one is from Jessica Cosmetics). Also, it is really opaque and only needed 2 coats.

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who finds their ads appalling. Anyways - I hate yellow as a color, but this looks like nice, thick polish for the price!
