2 coats of American Apparel nail lacquer in 'Office'

I tend to steer well away from green nail polishes, as I don't think they suit my skin tone, however I have a soft spot for minty green shades. I found the formula of this very runny, which was a little bit annoying as I managed to drip a few splodges on my hand. I noticed that the colour can be opaque with one coat. But due to the formula, I found it difficult to get the right amount on the brush so settled on two coats and ended up with a lovely streak-free opaque colour. It dried quickly, which is great and dried to a glossy, but matte-esque finish. I don't think that description makes sense, as glossy and matte are complete opposites, but hopefully you can kind of get an idea of what I mean from the picture...? Without a topcoat, this chipped on me within 2-3 days :(

Have you ever tried AA nail polish? What colours would you recommend?

  1. This is such a gorgeous colour! It's a shame it was so horrible to apply and chipped quickly though!

  2. Lovely colour! Rimmel do quite a similar colour called Mint Choc Chip, and their formulas are normally really good, as are the brushes, so maybe after this one is finished you could try that one?
