American Apparel Nail Lacquer: Neon Yellow




Yellow is my all time favourite colour and right now I'll pretty much buy anything that's yellow and/or neon. I've got my blazer, H&M jumper and have just bought a skater skirt from Missguided, the only thing missing was a nail polish. I was reading Zoe's blog the other day and my eyes lit up when I came across this amazing AA nail polish - exactly the colour I was looking for! Yesterday while I was in town I popped in to American Apparel to pick one up.

This is my first AA nail polish even though I've had my eye on them for quite a while. I could have went crazy, there were so many colours that I wanted but I was sensible and just stuck to this one. A tip I read on Zoe's blog was to put a base coat on to make the colour really pop, so I went for Rimmel Lemon drop which is a really pale, almost white yellow. Once that dried, I put on two coats of the Neon Yellow which dried matte so I used a top coat to give it a glossy finish.

I'm really impressed with how bright this is, I've found that with a lot of neon polishes the quality isn't great. This is now a new favourite for Spring/Summer and a subtle way to work this seasons Neon trend. I know neon's not for everyone but I personally love it. AA nail polishes cost £7 and I'll definitely be buying more!

Have you tried any of the American Apparel nail lacquers?

  14. I'm really into neon at the moment, which is pretty surprising for me considering I'm not normally a yellow polish fan :)
