American Apparel Army Jacket

Hi everyone!  I'm pleased to see the interest in my American Apparel Giveaway 2.0.  What's that?  You haven't heard about my giveaway?  Click here to for the chance to win your choice of three American Apparel polishes.  It's easy to enter.

I thought I'd whet your appetites a little bit with one of the new American Apparel polishes, Army Jacket.  It's the only new one I have (so far).  And you could win it if you waaaaanted to!

I am straight-up, 100% in love with this color.  OF COURSE.  It's MUTED OLIVE.  My FAVORITE. Ahem.  Anyway, this is Army Jacket.  It's kind of a combination of a muted olive and a sage green.  It's absolutely, phenomenally gorgeous.  I think it looks so chic.  I wore it yesterday with a little black dress, black tights, and black motorcycle boots and it complemented everything so nicely.  I've said it once and I'll say it again:  I think for some reason these ugly olive greens really work with my skintone.  

As with all American Apparel polishes, Army Jacket went on flawlessly with two easy coats.  I don't know what kind of voodoo AA works, but their creme formula is to die for.  Have I talked this one up enough?  I love, love, love it.

Upon first glance I thought this might be close to Rescue Beauty Lounge Diddy Mow.  Although I was dead wrong, the color is still in the same vein.

Diddy Mow, which I posted about here, is clearly a bit darker.  It also has kind of a hidden shimmer.  God, Diddy Mow is so pretty.  So is Army Jacket.  I just adore them both.

That's all for today.  If you haven't entered my AA Giveaway please do so.  Become a follower, tell a friend.  Hopefully I'll be able to post a festive manicure before Christmas...
