American Apparel Sheer Nail Polish Collection: Moonlight Beach

American Apparel Moonlight Beach (3 coats)

American Apparel has been a bit controversial when it comes to their ads, but there's no denying they have some great polishes. Their newest collection features "sheer" polishes, A.K.A. jellies. I know jellies are a favorite among many, but it usually isn't my favorite finish. I love to have an opaque finish without having to apply 5 coats of lacquer. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised with these. Being an LA based company, they named their polishes after different Southern California Beaches. Up first is Moonlight Beach, which is a beach I've never heard of (Google tells me it's in Encinitas). It's a blue jelly with strong hints of purple. They were correct in stating these were sheer; I used three thick coats for the photo above, but if you want to see some nail line, you can use 2 or 3 thin coats. These are also going to be perfect for a jelly sandwich (putting a glitter polish between the jelly polishes). 

You can find these at your local American Apparel store, or you can purchase them online for $6 each. I see on their website that they will be releasing their own glitter polishes in the near future as well...

I still have no AA in my collection. I never see it sold anywhere I have been. Thus far, have not been compelled enough to go fishing for it on line. I do hear their cream formulas are outstanding typically and gosh I love a great cream! Good to hear these jellies are not super sheer as to need 5 coats and still have VERY VNL!
