American Apparel – Mouse NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 21 - 2011

I bought this last summer at the same time as picking up a few of their other shades.  I was so unimpressed with the gloopy formula that I found with Peacock (a teal shade), that it’s taken me until now to try one of the others!

Silly me eh?

Mouse is quite, quite lovely.  It’s a softened greige… I defy you to liken this to shit fingers you ‘orrible greige hating lot (you know who you are!)

Very sophisticated-looking (if I do say so myself) but it needs 3 coats.  The above photo shows two coats and I can see a bit of transparency on my ring finger that I didn’t spot until looking at the photo above.

Longevity is slightly less than average, tip wear was noticeable after a day so I’d steer clear if polish peels off your tips quicker than you can paint it on.

American Apparel nail polishes are available instore or online priced at £7 each.

    My dislike for you grows with each nail post. HOW!! can you apply every polish in a way so that it looks so decent?

    I have trouble with even the best of them, you should do a “how I paint my nails” post because I guarantee you that I’ll be poring over the pics for a lonnnng time.

    Love these shades but they have to be right for your skin tone to prevent boiled beef hands, this one is perfect on you.

    This is such a lovely colour – a perfect spring greige!

    I’m tiring of taupe, I must say. £7 seems quite a lot. I now want shimmer or glitter or something in my greige. And AA only do cremes. Now why IS that?

  7. Rae says:

    Ooh! I’m not loving the sound of the formula (tip wear + three coats?) but the colour does look lovely!

    Lovely colour! 🙂

    I would buy it, I love all greige, gruple colours and will be wearing them forever. Do not like the font on the front though the angularity of the “nail lacquer” grates. Jan x

    Look at you with your elegant long nails and lovely greigey colour while I sit here, tapping away with my stumpy tips (although painted in a rather lovely indigo). Miffed. But seriously, lovely colour! xx

    I tried the Hunter green last year and while I adored the color the wear time and over-all lack luster finish left me cold. I never did try the other two colors I picked up so perhaps I should. You’ve inspired me!

  14. Lovely color, but it sucks that it doesn’t last! 🙁 x
