NOTD: American Apparel 'Mouse'

I have been lusting after this polish for quite some time but never managed to get hold of it.
The lovely Stacey finally came to my rescue recently when she held a blog sale (still going on, bargain hunters) and was selling Mouse. One beauty blogger's junk is another's treasure!
I have also since realised that some American Apparel polishes are sold on Asos.com - mouse is one of them if you fancy picking this one up.
Here it is in all it's rodent-y goodness...

Mouse is a gorgeously creamy grey-taupe. I have been searching for the perfect cool greige that leans more grey than beige and Mouse fits the bill. Most of my greige/taupe polishes are much warmer than this.
I love that this polish looks different in almost every light - sometimes leaning more grey, then beige and sometimes it even shows a touch of lilac.

The above is Mouse after just one coat. Opacity is excellent, however I added two coats out of habit...

I will update this in the future with regards to longevity/chipping etc as I removed this (accidentally) whilst removing polish from my toes.

American Apparel polishes retail at £9 (though strangely- £7 on asos?!) and for a big 3-free polish with this consistency I think that is a great price. I would certainly purchase more colours if they were more easily accessible.

  1. Woo! I'm glad you love it :) I liked it a lot too but unfortunately had to purge. I really like the formula of AA polishes in general - the only one I have left is Office xx
