Berry Swirls

Such a shame that I haven't posted about American Apparel Berry up to now... I was not wearing it until recently either. Now I really feel bad after I realised what a jewel I've had in my stash all this time and I was not paying any attention to it. Intense and juicy burgundy colour (or berry, as you like), easy application, nice gloss, coverage in 1 coat (although 2 + TC on the photos), fairly long wearing time - all this you can get if you have Berry. Sometimes topped with compliments from other people : )







After a couple of days that I fully enjoyed the colour, I stamped it with AA Rose Bowl, which by itself doesn't really match my skin tone. Oh well, at least I made some use of it as a stamping polish:




One more note: although I have nothing to complain about on this particular polish, such shades - deep red, berry, burgundy etc. - are very demanding during the application. One wrong move and the polish is all around your cuticles (can be seen on my index finger), and there's nothing you can do - it just won't leave if you try to clean up. Or maybe some of you know any secrets of the universe i.e. how to avoid or correct it? : ) I'd be glad to know!

  1. This is one of my favourite shades to wear on nails, I think it's one of those passepartout colours :) Very nice, I truly love it on your long nails!

    1. Thanks! :) I just discovered my sympathy for such shades.. Will try to wear them more often! And my nails are rather short than long now *cough* but I like this length :)

  4. Amazing colour. Can't go wrong with a classic like that :D But those are a pain indeed to clean if we mess our cuticles... we just have to clean it as soon as we make the mess. That's what I do (but I rarely have the need to clean up after painting my nails). Or you can always remove the whole nail paint and paint again -_- not a big help, huh? :P

    1. Thanks! Absolutely true - this shade is for all occasions. I usually don't clean up much afterwards either (years of experience^^), but with all these reds I have a real phobia that they'll flow all over the cuticles.. and then yes, removing and painting again..))

    1. Оттенок шикарен, чего это я раньше такие не носила.. А секрет этот я знаю :) Когда красила ногти в этот раз, запортачила 2 ногтя и попросила рядом сидящего мч мне их стереть, чтоб остальные не смазать.. Получился армаггедон, у меня все пальцы и ладони были в этом Берри :) В след раз - только сама)

    1. Thank you :) The berry colour is very cool IRL, so deep but still not vampy :)
