She is a violet grey opaline. Her base colour is probably cobalt.

The cheek patches show her colour"
If they were blue or light grey she would be a grey
If they were vivid purple she would be violet
If they were Violet she would be a mauve
As they are a dark greyish purple she must be a violet grey

Grey & violet are both colour adding factors and the under-lying colour is often visible, especially during a moult. When a bird is both violet & grey the shade may vary from one season to another
