When I was at American Apparel on Monday buying April her giveaway polishes I picked up Butter like four times but put it down each time. I kept thinking that it would look awful with my skin, that yellows apply terribly, that they're streaky, etc. Yesterday I ended up going back to AA with my friend Betsy because I wanted to show her the Hipster City that is Coventry. This meant, of course, that I had to buy three more AA polishes for myself.
Here's my little friend Butter. I finally bought it. The formula on this polish can only be described as EX-QUISITE. It was maybe a little thick, but this was still two easy coats. American Apparel, you are awesome. Butter is a nice, cool-toned yellow that doesn't look too awful on my skin. I like how it looks from far away, actually. Kind of mod-inspired, except yellow instead of pink or white, if that makes sense. This might be similar to that yellow Orly from the Sweet Collection or whatever it was for spring. I'm not sure. Either way, its formula kicks the sweet little ass of every other pastel yellow I've ever used. If you're a yellow fan (Ange-Marie!) then pick this little guy up.
I wanted to address a couple things that came up in the comments on the G + L post yesterday.
1. Ginger + Liz did not change their bottles, as far as I know. They still look the same. The bottles I posted yesterday were sample bottles that were sent to me.
2. I know a few of you wanted me to compare a Diamond Cosmetics polish to one of the G + L polishes. I do not own any Diamond Cosmetics polishes so I can't do that. I'm not ignoring your requests, I'm just unable to fulfill them.
I leave you with a picture of me ALREADY REGRETTING not purchasing a signed Bat Out of Hell record before I even left the record store.
And here are the signatures. I CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T FREAKING BUY THIS.
NON-BUYER'S REMORSE, PEOPLE. IS THERE ANYTHING WORSE? Well, yes. There are a lot of worse things. But just let me be dramatic for a second.
