American Apparel~Mouse & Hassid

American Apparel recently launched their new Nail Lacquer line of 18 shades that retail for $6 a bottle.  I was sent 2 polishes from their line for review.  They sent me Mouse and Hassid.  I am so happy they sent me Mouse.  I have been on the hunt for that perfect gray for my skin tone and guess what-it's Mouse!  Mouse is a gray creme with a tiny hint of pink to it.

Both pics are 2 coats, no top coat, inside with a flash(still no sun in 'sunny' California)

Hassid is a black creme.  This is 2 coats, no top coat.  I think 1 coat would have worked just fine.  **Bonus points-it works for Konad!!!  You'll have to take my work, I am out of acetone and did a quicky :)

All in all, I am thoroughly impressed with American Apparel Nail Lacquer.  I can't wait to order some!  You can find them here.

**Disclaimer** The kind people at American Apparel sent me these sample nail lacquers for review.

I am soooo excited about Mouse and I always forget how much I love black polish until I have it on.

Are you suggesting you did no cleanup with us "having to make due" I wish my manicures looked this great AFTER cleanup. What is your secret!?

I try to take my time and I use an orangewood stick(my BFF) dipped in remover to remove mistakes. I also do the "3 line" method from cuticle area to nail tip. This is my routine that works for me :)

With reference to the Konad-you should only use acetone to clean the plate and stamper and I am out. But Hassid does work for stamping :)
Thanks!

Mouse is a great color! I just ordered a few others and I can't wait to get them. American Apparel hit a homerun with this collection!
