Epilepsy Awareness: Day 2 & ABC Challenge Week 1

So today I bring you Day 2 of my 7 Days of Purple Manicures to show support of Epilepsy Awareness.  And as coincident would have it, I also decided to participate in Erica's Nails and More Challenge.  In this challenge we are to post a manicure starting with that day's letter of the alphabet.  26 letters for 26 weeks. So starting today, the letter is "A". And I needed to find either a brand, a color, or a nail art technique that starts with "A".  So adding to that challenge, I needed to find a purple polish that fits those criteria. Luckily, I have a fairly substantial polish collection and I am anal-retentive enough to have all my polishes in a spreadsheet, LOL! So I went through my spreadsheet and found that polish that fit all the criteria.
Today I am sharing with you a polish I purchased while on a trip to Atlanta. I had been wanting to try some of the American Apparel polishes but there weren't any in my local area. While on a church trip to Atlanta, when I had some time to visit the Lenox Mall (luckily my time was limited, because I could have gotten into a lot trouble in that place, LOL!) Anyway, across the parking lot from Lenox Mall was an American Apparel store.  I ran in and purchased the 3 polishes I had been wanting.  So today, I'm sharing American Apparel African Violet. (The brand starts with "A", the color starts with "A", and most important, it's purple).

American Apparel African Violet is a beautiful mid-tone violet cream purple. It is a true purple. While very pretty worn alone, African Violet would also be a great base for several of the glitter top coats on the market.  Out of habit, I applied 2 coats, but if done properly, you could get a fully opaque finish with one coat.

Have you tried any of the American Apparel polishes? Which are your favorites?  

Also, if you are interested in participating in Erica's Challenge, click through the above link for all the information. I look forward to seeing your posts.

REVIEW: If memory serves me correctly, when I purchased these American Apparel polishes they were 3 for $10.
Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
