Rainbow Favorites Challenge - Purple!

American Apparel Factory Grey

American Apparel Factory Grey
Yipppee! It's "Purple Day" in the Rainbow Challenge. Purple has been my favorite color since day 1.  I always had a purple room growing up, purple clothes, purple husband just gave me an Amethyst necklace for Mother's Day.  It's also my birthstone - perfect!  
Like yesterday's blue (Butter London Lady Muck), this isn't a bright and exciting shade.  I have realized that although I love all the bright and flashy colors; when it comes down to it, my favorites are pastels.  I think they look better on me and I am just drawn to them.  
This was my first American Apparel polish.  It's called "Factory Grey".  I have 2 American Apparel polishes and both of them are so creamy and opaque.  They apply perfectly.  I really do want to pick up more, I just have to wait until I get to Mall of America again.
Factory Grey is the perfect purple/grey tone.  Purple/Grey/Beige/Taupe nail polish is probably my signature polish.  I love Sephora by OPI Metro Chic, Rimmel Steel Grey, Sally Hansen Concrete, etc....there are tons of dupes out there. Below are some of the other purples I considered...

Check out the rest of the crews' purples!  Have a happy Friday!


  1. Way to be true to yourself. :) This is a lovely, soft shade.

  2. I love how it's purple but neutral at the same time!

  3. That's a lovely color. I think purple is an oddly neutral color. I wear Dannii by Zoya as a neutral; it's my favorite purple. :)

  4. That's pretty! It's such a lovely and soft purple. :-)
