American Apparel: Poppy

One of my first American Apparel polishes! I also picked up Hunter at the same time, which I haven't gotten to use yet. 

I forgot my SD card at home, so you'll have to make do with my phone pictures.
Poppy - three coats + top coat

Application: The polish was a bit to the runnier side, but it wasn't bad at all because it made the application really smooth! The two coats were kinda streaky because I didn't do really thick coat, but it evened out by the third coat. They're advertised to be opaque with one coat, but I think that's only if you do a really thick coat (which I didn't do)

Color: Very bright and fun! I don't really know how to describe the color.. it's not quite red, orange, or coral. Maybe it's like a combination of all of them. But either way, I feel like Poppy is such a fitting name for it. It's definitely screams spring or summer though. 

Overall, I think I'm going to really like American Apparel polishes after this experience, but the main thing that bothers me is that the color separates too much in the bottle. I'm lucky to pick up two bottles that didn't have this problem (yet), but the rest of the ones in the store were so separated that it's kind of gross and shaking it doesn't really seem to help either. 


  1. WOW AMAZING COLOR! And you have an amazing nails! Mine are short so its hard for me to paint it x) Lol btw, I am following you I hope you can check my blog back! <3


    1. Thanks! My nails are actually a bit shorter than I would like, but I can't help it because it's been breaking a lot and the only way it'll grow is if I leave it alone :(

  2. The polish looks amazing. It's in the nicest color! So bright and thick. Fun colors I guess. :)
