This polish applied okay, nothing special. The brush is very long, which takes some getting used to. I do very much like the color. I get what American Apparel are trying to do with the names, but at the same time, I don't really get it. They already have a gazillion shades that they have had to name for their t-shirts - why didn't they just use those colors? Then I'll know whether my Slate tee is going to match my slate varnish. Or is that just me?
