I Love Nail Polish Charmingly Purple Swatch And Review

Well, if you forgot that yesterday was April Fool's Day like I did, you would have realized that the GlitterDaze news was actually a joke.  I didn't catch on until I saw a post from one of my favorite readers gave me a heads up and later an Instagram post by GlitterDaze apologizing for the hoax.  Apparently some of the buyers were saying that the joke was made in poor taste, because some they felt pressured into buying the last of the stock when that wasn't really the case.  She is offering refunds in the event you feel that way, but hopefully you'll take the joke in stride and accept that you were able to score some of her polishes for 15% off.  Personally, I'm glad to hear that she's not actually closing down because that was worse news for me!

Today's polish is an exquisite lavender purple holo calling Charmingly Purple by I Love Nail Polish.  It's a straightforward pastel purple with medium strong holo flare, and application was a breeze.  I didn't experience any balding or streaking and the formula was thin and easy to control.  I used three coats here with no topcoat.  Look at that wonderful shine!

Isn't that a charming purple holo?  This is purple shade that I don't have in my arsenal of holos and I'm glad to have picked this one up.  I have to also advise that Barbra is a marvelous owner because she easily corrected a shipping mistake that I made when I entered in the wrong address.  The errant package was getting returned by the time I realized my error and when I notified her, she quickly shipped out a replacement package to me.  Talk about amazing customer service!  I'm definitely a huge fan of her and her polishes, and I can see myself being a loyal follower, especially after that minor fiasco.  Who can deny a brand that goes above and beyond for their customers?

    1. Thanks for the heads up! I wanted to smack myself for falling for that prank... I'm always falling for April Fool's Jokes.

  2. Great color I got on preorder and wore immediately and loved, and I've had similar awesome customer service from the brand. I don't know why they can do it when others can't, but I'm glad they do. :)

    1. I totally agree. She's amazing, and that type of service will only help increase her fan base. I hope she keeps up the amazing business strategy! And polishes too!
