With a lovely range of flirty summery-vibe pigments that instantly enchant and with a sheer, high quality DBP and toluene free formula that delivers fast drying and long lasting results, the brand's Sheer collection will dare you to resist its beauty.

American Apparel proposes to make the best out of all its sheer nail polishes by creating a fun and colorful ombre nail art design. To achieve this look apply a few drops of your fav nail polish on a non-absorbent piece of paper and dab the color with a piece of sponge prior to press the sponge to your bare nail, close to your cuticle. Coat all the desired nails before switching to a different nail polish hue. Apply the second color slightly over the first one to achieve a cool transition nuance that will leave your nail polish design looking fabulous. Continue with all the shades until you've achieved the desired multi-chromatic effect.
American Apparel Sheer nail polishes retail for $6 each, so grab on to your favorite hues and mash-up the colors to suit your personality and style!
