I just want to break out and sing God Bless America when I think of this name. :D Actually, I don't just want to break and sing, I do break out and sing, b/c that's what I do. Not a shy person by any means! Plus, once you've been in choir 7 yrs, you don't really care who you sing in front of. ;)
Anywho, about the polish. America is from the La-Di-Da collection, and is a true tomato red. It's a bit bluer than the picture shows. Not a terribly unique color, but my stash of reds is sadly underdeveloped, so I don't really have any color like this besides Rimmel Passion, and that is a good deal oranger than this.
Application was bea-uuuuu-tiful, perfection in 2 coats. I wore it to my piano recital, I like red nails with the black and white piano. :) My sister wore China Glaze Wagon Trail ... she always refuses to wear 'normal' colors, she only liked the dirtier, funkier colors, like Wagon Trail and Lincoln Park After Dark and Essie Sag Harber. :)
Oo boy, got off on a tangent. I do that a lot. haha.
I know I said this before when I posted about OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress, but I just love red nail polish. Some people think that it looks overdone or cheap or whatever, but red nails make me think of sexy confidence. Plus they make me feel like a femme fatale. This particular red reminds me of Marilyn Monroe, whom I looove.
