Update 1/28/10: American Apparel's nail polishes were recently recalled due to an issue with broken bottles. The retailer will offer a $10 gift card to anyone who brings back a bottle from the original run or a receipt confirming purchase.
I managed to get my hands on the new nail polish from American Apparel's just launched, 18-shade line which began rolling out worldwide recently.
I was instantly attracted to this pale violet shade, called Dynasty (Joan Collins anyone?). It's a medium/thin formula which was creamy and applied smoothly.
The shade is matte with no shimmer and is very pretty when you want a pastel and something that's not your typical pink. It takes a full two coats to get close to the shade in the bottle, but with one coat you could also experiment with a french manicure too. The polish has good lasting power, with minimal chipping (at $5 each that's nice!) - RLB
The line is sold exclusively at American Apparel stores.
Price: $6 per bottle or $15 for a 3-pack.
