Polish Pick: American Apparel Army Jacket

American Apparel Army Jacket, one of the latest shades to hit the shelves, is a… well Army Green Creme. Reminds me of split pea soup but not in a gross kind of way. This was my first time purchasing American Apparel nail lacquers and I was kind of wary as they looked old, like they had been on the rack for years. I had to shake it for a few minutes to get it to the correct consistency. I went out on a whim and picked up Cameo Blue which is also new, Manila and Army Jacket.

I didn’t really have any application issues. It applied smooth over my Orly Bonder base coat and only took two coats. Without a top coat, the finish is a bit dull but nothing that a glossy top coat like Seche Vite can’t handle. I really like the shade. It fits in perfectly with the military trend going on these days.

Have you tried American Apparel Nail Lacquers?


When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    I've never tried American Apparel polishes. The colour for this one is quite unusual. The name is so appropriate!

    I hope your Christmas weekend is going well! Happy holidays! 🙂

      It is definitely unusual, probably why I love it so much.

      My holiday weekend has been wonderful though, thank you. Happy Holidays hon! 🙂
