Hey everyone!

Been awhile since I have been able to post any polish so today I’ve got some fun new colors from American Apparel for summer 2010.

The formula on these is really, really great. They have their stuff down! All of these were only two coats for full opacity and one could have been just one coat. The lighter colors look like they will be a hot streaky mess, but they are actually very even. I was super impressed!

Read on for swatches!

Summer Peach

Summer Peach is a light peachy/nude. This was the first of these collection that I swatched and I truly thought it was going to be horrible, but I was so wrong. Even with just one coat, it was very opaque and smooth. It’s not my favorite color on me personally, but could see the appeal on those with a different skin tone.


Butter is a light, cool lemon yellow. I love this kind of yellow, with not much gold in it, and amazingly, there was barely a streak at all! This is probably the least streakiest yellow I have ever used.


L’Esprit is a light lavender pastel. This is a really pretty color and suits my skin nicely, though I do feel I have a lot of other colors like this.

Malibu Green

Malibu Green is a bright, teal green. This is a gorgeous color and the best of the bunch. This was so opaque I could have used just one coat, but I did two here.

Overall I think these colors are pretty great and the formula is outstanding. There are also a few other colors in this collection that I don’t have.

You can find these on American Apparel’s website now.

Whaddya think?
