NOTD: American Apparel Summer Peach

Hey all - this is my first blog post for an absolute age and I'm going to be easing myself back into it with some nice n' easy NOTD posts. I'm a little bit obsessed with nail polish so you can expect these posts to be quite regular!



This polish is American Apparel's 'Summer Peach' and it's a lovely, very pale pastel peach . The colour in the photo above is fairly true to the colour in real life. It's a great one for summer as it would look lovely with a tan (speaking of which, please excuse the grubby fake tanned knuckles!). I added a bit of glitter to my ring finger with OPI's 'Bring on the Bling'.

I really like American Apparel's nail polishes in general. The formulation is great - thick but easy to apply. The darker shades I have tried tend to be opaque in one coat but I had to work a little harder with this one - it took three coats to get it completely opaque. Their staying power is also fairly good, despite my awful flaky nails.

American Apparel polishes are €9 or three for €21 from their Grafton Street store or online. I'll definitely be picking up one or two from their new neon collection. Neon red? Eh, yes please. I'm on the lookout for a new red polish for summer as all the reds I have are too deep, or sparkly - just generally too Christmassy, so I need something summery. I think this neon red could fit the bill. If you have any other recommendations, please let me know! Pin It
