American Apparel Swatches

So. I'm here. And you're still here. I hope. I didn't have a nice break if that's what you're wondering. I was at the vet yesterday, but not with Aishila. This time I went with our little chihuahua - Car. I found out that he has a very weak heart and the heat is almost killing him. And about my little squirrel monkey: she's on the Medrol pills (you might know Medrol for being chemotherapy drugs and they have serious side effects). I can just hope everything will work out.

I missed blogging. Far more than you missed my posts. Since China Glaze interrupted my ''dramatic'' absence I said ''what the hell'' and here I am.

IceRozie from MUA surprised me with the kindest gift - two American Apparel nail polishes. And the pretty ones too: Mount Royal and L'Esprit. Now I have a total of 4 AA polishes.

Color drops are back too!

From L to R:
* Office, 3 coats
* Peacock, 2 coats
* L'Esprit, 2 coats
* Mount Royal, 2 coats

And in reversed order:

And another thing. Do you remember my theory about Color Club and Family Guy conspiracy? For those of you who are following FG cartoon, you might know that Cleveland got his own show - The Cleveland Show. And I think he's working with the American Apparel.
Check out the pants! Hmmmm...

Thanks for looking!


  1. Great color theory. It'd be great if someone working on The Cleveland show either loved nail polish themselves, or had a spouse who had their own "little" collection. It's funny and fun to think about, either way. :)

    Glad to see you back. And I hope you feel better. :) Love and hugs from my part of the U.S.

  2. Lovely comparison with family guy! :P
    Nice colours :)

  3. Aww poor puppy :( I hope he feels all better soon.

    LOL about Family Guy!! I love that show.
    And even though I own these polishes I love seeing them on you! ;)

  4. They're all so pretty; I especially want Office. It's good to see you back, and I hope everything works out for you.

  5. I missed your posts! Glad to see you back, I hope your pets get better.

  6. All are so pretty! I don't think I have Mount Royal...may need to get it :)

  7. lmao at the Cleveland comparison

  8. And I do believe Butter and Cotton are the AA colors of the shirts... Haha, love the color theory!

  9. Thank you ladies!

    @GetNailed: Great observation skills! =D

  10. Hahaha, I love you honey! Those pants are dead on. ;D I'm not fond of pastels, but I think I might have to get Mount Royal. My fave is missing in your bunch - Hunter. :) On the other hand that one is identical to Orly Enchanted Forest...

  11. Oh L'Esprit is lovely :)

    Glad to see you back as well, and I'm sorry to hear about your pets, hope they get well soon!

  12. Glad you are back hun, sorry to hear about your pets. Hope they get well soon.

    Great colours, and what a great theory about the colours and show lol xxx

  13. Great to have you back! Hope your pets get well soon

  14. Good to know you're back!
    Hope you feel a little bit better now!
    I'm sorry to hear about Aishila, but is Medrol really for chemotherapy? I thought it was Prednisolone and being so it's not so serious it will only make her a bit drowsy :)
    Anyways, I wish you nothing but the best with her and your doggy :)

    I like Peacock and Mount Royal , how goes clean up for the last one?

  15. Cool colors I'm going to try them. Thank you


  16. So pretty, and I'm loving your Cleveland show comparison.

    Am sending good thoughts to you and your fur babies.

  17. I hope everything goes well with Aishila and Car!

  18. Well Hello! I don't have access to American Apparel polishes so I don't know anything about them, but my heart is with you and your puppy! We had an electrical storm Friday night and my modem blew up and I only got the Internet back this afternoon. As usual, though, your nails are gorgeous.


  19. I have never try aa... I think i should get at least one of them.. They are amazing color!! Btw love cleveland!!
    Thanks Nihrida =)

  20. Happy to see you back, and Mount Royal is soooo pretty!

  21. Your nails are so pretty. I love the polishes. Office is my favorite. Glad your blogging again. So sorry your animals are having such an awful time.

  22. Sorry to hear about your animals lovey.
    I hope they get well soon.
    I am in love with L'Esprit!


  23. I've got three of those four, all but peacock. I haven't used Mount Royal yet, but I have to say the first time I saw L'Espirit on someone's nails I almost died because it was so gorgeous!! it looks strictly lavender in the bottle but almost periwinkle on the nail!! **SWOON** I do find their formula is inconsistent though, my bottle of L'Espirit is really thick, while office is terribly watery...is it the same for you?

  24. American Apparel polish is made by Forythe who also makes Color Club, Funky Fingers, and Massini (Studio M), among others. Therefore it must be Forsythe working with FG.

    Pretty nails!

  25. @Feline: I have EF, so I don't think I need Hunter just yet. =) And yes, you NEED Mount Royal. It's freaking gorgeous!

    @Sarah B.: Thank you! Yes, Medrol is THE drug. Used for many things as well for cancer patients. Google it, you might find something...
    What do you mean with the clean up? I didn't have to do any aditional cleaning up after applying it. But if you mean removal, then I had no problems. =)

    @Ariana: I found my bottles of Office and L'Esprit the same as you. Office is more watery and L'Esprit is kind of thick and chalky.

    @The Nail Narc: Now that's a great detective work! =)

    Thank you for all your kind words! I really appreciate it! <3

  26. I love l´esprit! How much did shipping the AA polishes cost?

  27. I bought the first two via Megan Chair... so the shipping was calculated by weight. I can't remember anymore.
