NOTD: American Apparel in Manila

When I saw the name of this shade, I was like,"wow", I want that! The name of my city on a US brand of polish! Even if I'm not sure if it really pertains to "our Manila". Never mind too, that yellow isn't one of my favorite colors. I must get that. And I did. 








Application is a bit streaky but manageable. I also love how vibrant the color is. I used Nail Tech foundation as a based and China Glaze Fast Freeze as topcoat.

Decided to use this today in time for the inauguration of the newly elected President of the Philippines, Benigno Simeon "Noynoy" Cojuangco Aquino III.





Wasn't able to watch the inauguration program as I have work today while the rest of the Filipinos are on a holiday to witness this historical event. I just thought of celebrating it with the Filipino nation, by wearing P-Noy's (and his mother's) color. 

Looking forward to a better future, hope he delivers, if not all, at least most of his promises during the campaign period.

Hehe, I think the name "Manila" comes from manila folders for the color of those folders. It's not a bright yellow like that but rather, a very mellow yellow color.
