For as long as I can remember, I've been giving myself at-home manicures and pedicures. While at first, it was out of necessity...a broke college student, away from home but still wanting to look clean and presentable, it quickly became a weekly ritual and part of my me-time. Now, I've been doing this for years, used many nail polish brands both high end and drugstore, tried the gel manicure and I also get the occasional salon mani and pedi, so you can imagine that in this time I've developed some nail polish favorites.
Cue the under-rated, never spoken of American Apparel nail polish. These polishes have been one of my favorites for years and I rarely hear them mentioned. This range has a wide variety of beautiful colors, which are long lasting and BONUS they are cruelty free and DBP(dibutyl phthalate), toluene and formaldehyde free..that was a mouthful. Try picking one up next time you plan to get a mani/pedi...below are the awesome colors I own and love.
1) L'Esprit, 2) Neon Violet, 3) Parakeet, 4) Pink Ladies, 5) Office, 6) Mount Royal, 7) Violet Panache, 8) Neon Orange, 9) Mouse , 10)Dance, 11)Imperial Purple, 12)Mannequin, 13)Meteor Shower, 14)Manila, 15)Poppy
If you try these polishes, let me know what you think!
