There's much to like about the new shades, particularly L'Esprit ($6), a very pretty blue-tinged white, and Malibu Green ($6). AA has been expanding its range lately from the horribly unflattering leotards of yore, and it seems like it's moving toward a slightly more inclusive product lineup. So here's my question for those of you who need more arch support than a pair of Chucks can provide and have never listened to Ra Ra Riot: do you think you'll be into these shades, or is the taint of Dov Charney just too much?
Even if you're not into wearing jeggings and discussing the relative merits of Mark Knopfler lyrics, this is good news. American Apparel released an 18-shade collection of nail polish a few months back to rave reviews (and a short recall, though the issues have since been fixed). The initial line was also chock-full of good dupes — Mouse ($6) is thisclose to Chanel Particuliere ($23). We are seriously coveting some of the new colors, so to check the new shades out, just keep reading.
