American Apparel L'Esprit

So, yesterday I got part of my American Apparel nail polish haul. Most of it was out of stock sadly. But here's what UPS brought yesterday:

I have to say, I love the bottles more than anything! I was a bit confused by one box though. It said Massini on it! I know Massini is also a nail polish brand...maybe they share bottle manufacturers? I don't know. I don't own any Massini polishes (not available to me) so I can't compare them side by side.

So, I was tempted to try out Malibu Green first. But I let my middle child choose a color and he chose L'Esprit. This is my first time using an American Apparel polish and I have to agree with every other review I've read on these polishes, it's AWESOME! It wasn't thick, goopy or runny and it was completely opaque in one coat! If I were more careful I would have left it at one, but I"m very messy when I put np on. So I had to do a second coat to make it look somewhat presentable. Here's two thin coats with SV on top.

My only complaint with these polishes would be the brush. Well, not really the brush, but the stick on the brush. It's super long. Which makes sense if you think of the bottle shape. But I found it hard to take the excess polish of the stick without dipping the brush into more polish. Perhaps I'm just physically disabled this way. But I'm sure it'll get easier with practice :) That's it from me for now. Thanks for looking and hope you guys are all ready for the weekend!


  1. Wow I love it! It's really really pretty on you! I think I'll have to run out and get this one ASAP! :D

  2. Yeah they must be the same bottle cause I'm comparing my Massini to your photo here and they look exactly the same.

  3. Thank you Wan, I hope you do get it and love it!

    Arrianne, thank you very much for your input! I've never seen a Massini bottle in real life, so it's nice to know from someone who does have one that this would explain why I got a box labeled Massini from American Apparel :D
