NOTD: American Apparel Nail Lacquer Dance

Two coats of American Apparel Nail Polish in Dance. Nude Creme.

Nude nail colors that don't give you the dreaded mannequin hands are hard to come by, so when I spotted Dance during my last AA crop top-buying spree, I figured I would give it a shot. P.S. Total score.

For me, Dance is one of those perfect nude colors, as it has a subtle, peach-leaning undertone that brings just enough life to your nails, while still giving you that elongated look.

This was my first encounter with American Apparel Nail Polish {and it won't be my last}. The formula is excellent - non-streaking, fast-drying, and buildable. I used two coats here, but I could have used three as there is a bit of VNL {not the formula's fault - simply the light color}. This is an awesome shade if you're looking for a classy nail color, or simply need a break from brights.


What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?

This looks like a go to color for sure! Love it! I will confess I've gone Bright with MegaLast's Tulip season.

Truly a nailpolish I'd love to get! Still, a rose my lady by Millani is my favorite for everyday.

I love that nude peachy color Erika! So pretty! I just got a mani/pedi with bright pink so I'm into that at the moment, but will probably swing back to lighter in a few weeks :)

Ooh Erika, this is literally my perfect nail colour, LOVE! I am all about the nudes and blush pinks, just divine. Thanks for the heads up on this polish, have never tried this one before...

OneCraftyFox said...

Oh, I LUVS it!! Your mani looks fab ;) Great staple piece, Erika... thanks for sharing!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I didn't even know nude nail color existed. This looks great on you, but I can definitely understand how that particular shade is a rare find. Most nudes probably give you stub tips right? Eek!
