American Apparel Sheer Polish Collection: Manhattan Beach (and Dollish Polish Koopa King...sorta)



American Apparel Manhattan Beach (3 coats) (Dollish Polish Koopa King on middle finger)

Finally, a California beach I've actually been to! When I was in high school, my band played in the Rose Parade so I was able to go see Manhattan Beach while there. Since it was January, it was not really warm and it was pretty windy, but it was still fun. Have you been to any of the beaches named after the American Apparel sheer polishes? Manhattan Beach is a bright coral jelly with a jelly sandwich using Dollish Polish Koopa King on my middle finger. This jelly was pretty opaque, and you can't really see a lot of the golden glitter, just the black and dark green glitter from Koopa King. No worries, I'll have another post featuring Dollish Polish soon. I think this one may be my favorite of the three, likely because it is slightly more opaque while still having that squishy look to it. Overall, if you like jelly polishes, I would definitely pick one or 2 of these up. 

p.s. isn't it weird seeing my right hand posted instead of my left hand?

I really like the coral red squishy jelly look.

Love this one despite I have a couple of bottle that are close to this one. BTW I grew up in Manhattan Beach, CA!! We lived 2 blocks up from the beach on what was then a walk up street (meaning just that - no cars just sidewalk up the street between say our house and the folks 'across' the street. It was great for kid play to have that HUGE wide expanse of sidewalk. There was an ally behind the streets which were walk up streets that you got access to your garage off of. A # of the old walk up streets are switched over now days because it did create quite a bit of a parking problem for beachgoes and 'company' coming to your home alike.

Sooooo not a fan of the new captha 'soft dotted' lettering Blogger changed to. I don't need to be having to strain that hard to try and read it - guess I need a vision tune up. If it keeps going in this direction I am going to have to start to use the audio option!
