Now that it’s November, I’m switching to a more autumnal palette. American Apparel Army Jacket (Fall 2010) is an asparagus green creme:
Picture taken in natural light. This applied well in two coats. American Apparel polishes can be runny, but it’s not a problem if you don’t load the long brush/handle with polish. This one isn’t actually one of the very runny ones; it went on smoothly and easily. When I hear “Army Jacket” I was expecting more of a browned, khaki-like green. I guess I could picture this on a camouflage jacket, as one of the brighter shades of green. But it’s quite an interesting color. I was looking for the best word to describe it and asparagus fit the bill. The shade has an element of dustiness and was made for a fall/winter collection, but I could actually see this work in the spring as well, maybe because it’s a light shade. I paired this with Barielle Get Mauve-ing on my toes.
