It’s been a while hasn’t it? The past year has been whirlwind for me – hence the lack of updates. But of course, I always had the time to get some polish on my nails. Better late then never?
I shared the Madeline Poole American Apparel Sheer nail polish design previously, now here’s the tutorial:
The full set
I’ve been trying to get those polishes but unfortunately American Apparel doesn’t ship the polishes to sunny Singapore, where I am, but I finally managed to get them during my trip to London! Lacking all self-restraint, I got three colours at the first store and went back for one more at the second (not all stores had the full range).
I didn’t get all of them, but I did get a bunch of the different colours I particularly liked.
A little worn from several uses…
From top to bottom: Moonlight Beach (blue), Manhattan Beach (coral), Pacific Beach (green), Zuma Beach (lighter green – reminds me of wasabi!)
They’re all very fluid, and very sheer. That also makes them super easy to layer to create this watercoloured effect – which I ADORE.
You can play around with the colour combinations, but I would recommend going with the lighter colour below and then thin coats of the darker colour over, just so you can control how dark the shades go.
On the first try. This was a little dark with 4-5 coats.
Pardon the cuticles…
It was a sunny summer’s day out, hence the bright sunlight
Mixed reactions over this colour combination but I for one love it! Reminds me of summer and Snapple’s kiwi strawberry drink
With a layer of Seche Vite over these lasted me 1-2 weeks, pretty long wear I’d say. I’ve since done the blue/green combination several times on my finger and toe nails and I love how they give a sort of depth to what would otherwise be a boring solid colour.

What do you think? Would you try these sheer polishes out?
