I'm sorry I've gone so many days without posting. I thought that this week might be an easy one for several reasons, but it ended up kicking my ass anyway. I have a new American Apparel for you today. It's gorgeous, as is to be expected from AA.
This is African Violet. It's a nice mid-tone purple that leans just a tiny bit red. Normally I like to show you a picture in natural light as well as in artificial light (the two images above are artificial light) but the natural light here lately is utter crap. Also, these images came out surprisingly color accurate, so I figured we could just make do with them for now. My application of this was not great despite the superb formula. African Violet is everything that I expect an American Apparel creme to be: flawless. Easy to apply, two coats to opacity. I'm pretty smitten with this color, actually. If anyone is wondering, no, this is not a dupe for Rescue Beauty Lounge Mismas. Compared to African Violet Mismas leans blue.
Why did I choose to wear this polish? Because the other night my boyfriend came in bearing flowers. No one has ever gotten me flowers before! I was so delighted that I'm afraid that I didn't convey my delight to him accurately. It's amazing that one little thing can make me so happy. I feel warm and fuzzy inside when I look at them on my mantle. I didn't have a vase or anything, so they're currently housed in one of my Target tumblers. Because I'm classy.
Sweet Jesus, look at all of my freckles in that picture. Insane. Anyway, lookit how pretty they are! Orange and yellow! They brighten up my mood just a little bit every time I look at them. It was so sweet of him. He's the bestest.
That's all for today. How are you guys feeling about African Violet? I think if you're a fan of purple polish you should definitely go pick this one up. Also, any fun weekend plans? I'll be stuck reading piles of articles and historiography, so maybe I can live vicariously through you all.
