American Apparel - Mouse

Grey/taupe creme

I know, another taupe. What can I say, I love 'em...

Mouse from American Apparel leans grey and doesn't have much purple.  It also changes a lot with the light, looking much warmer, more mushroom toned in sunlight and cooler out of the sun.

It's also quite a soft, light taupe compared with something like OPI's You Don't Know Jacques!

Swatches are 2 coats, no top coat - the polish has a wonderful shine of its own.

American Apparel made quite a splash when they launched their polishes back in 2010, whatever you think of the company and their practices (pretty dodgy is my view) they certainly picked the right supplier for their polishes.  Almost all were highly pigmented with great application and the first couple of colour collections were fabulous.  I personally love the enamel-like feel of the polish.


  1. It looks quite grey in the first photo!

    1. Yeah, if you google pics some look really brown, weird!
