Happy Thanksgiving, USA!
Today’s Throwback Thursday was released in American Apparel’s 2010 Summer collection, shortly after this line of polish launched in Winter 2009. I have my thoughts on this line of polish, and about the company itself, in my post about another shade, Dynasty.
Butter lives up to its name. It’s a pale, whitened yellow cream. There is a very slightest hint of dustiness to the color.
For a pale, pastel yellow cream, this is surprisingly nice. I don’t think I’ve tried a better one, actually. That said, I haven’t tried too many brands of such a color! A similar shade would be China Glaze Lemon Fizz, which I believe is still available, but I didn’t like it at all.
American Apparel Nail Lacquer retailed for US$6 (3-packs were available for $15) and were 0.5 US fl oz / 15 mL. It was free of toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), but did contain camphor. They were made in the USA.
American Apparel was founded in Los Angeles, CA, USA by Canadian entrepreneur Dov Charney in 1989. It is a designer, manufacturer, and retailer of the American Apparel line of clothing, and is one of the largest apparel manufacturers in North America. The company remains based in Los Angeles.
