NOTD: American Apparel - Mount Royal

Well, these are the nails of yesterday, actually, I'm just about to take this off and put on something else but I thought I'd share because I love the colour!

American Apparel - Mount Royal
(Barry M clear base coat, two coats of colour & Sally Hansen Mega Shine top coat)

I really like these American Apparel polishes since picking one up on a whim when buying overpriced basics in the store. They are £7 each in the UK and you can get them on the American Apparel site and in stores. I think all the shades available have cream finishes which suits me prefectly! I did two coats of this but I could have gotten away with one if I had to. I also find they dry pretty quickly on their own too. I love the colour of this, it's not a true royal blue, there's a bit of 'dusty-ness' to it which makes it look a bit purple sometimes. I used to think I'd never wear blue nail polish but I seem to own quite a few now! This is one of my favorites though as it's less garish than a lot of other blues. 

The only gripe I have with this polish is that it chipped on me within a day. I find that most of my polishes last at least three days without chipping so this is disappointing. It doesn't bother me massively though as I tend to change my polishes at least every two days anyway (what can I say? I find it relaxing! I also have far too much nail polish so need to justify my collection by using it constantly!).

Have you tried any of these polishes? What do you think of them?
