Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a fabulous Monday!!
Today I'm going to be talking about something that seems to be a touchy subject to most. Curling of teh glitters!! Gasp! I know, I know very touchy!!
Anyway, I was looking through some swatches of different glitter polishes and noticed a couple that were extremely curly, like OMG taco city! So I did a google search for more swatches of this polish and every single one was curly :(
Now, I'm sure you all think I'm talking about an Indie polish but guess what??? I'm not!! I am talking about several pretty big companies.Yes I said several.
The first one is Color Club Sugar Plum Yum.I don't own this one but you can see what I am talking about by clicking here. I'm sorry I don't have any picture's for you to view but I would rather just link to the site I saw them at.
The second one is Color Club Very Merry Berry which is also here.
The third one I found is Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday and you can see it here.
And finally there is Wet n Wild Spoiled Shuffle The Deck and Trust Fund Baby which you can see here.
I am sure there is more but I don't feel like looking!!
So, by now your probably wondering why the heck I'm talking about this and I will tell you.
Why is there a double standard when it comes to Indie brand vs Major brand's?
If people buy an Indie polish and the glitters sink or curl you are demanding a refund or a replacement and if that doesn't happen they are slandering them all over the internet. BUT if they buy a Color Club it's ok and nothing gets said about it?!?!
One would think that it would be more upsetting if a major brand put out a less then adequate product with the amount of resource's they have available to them.
It just doesn't make any sense to me!!
I understand that there are some people out there that have seen the Indie craze and thought to themselves "Wow all I have to do is put some glitter in some clear polish and I can make a ton of money" and then sell them to poor unsuspecting buyer's and then get mad because their polish was crap!!
I looked at about 30 different reviews on these and not 1 of them said anything about the curling or tacoing of the glitters, but if you look for reviews of any Indie brand you will see that it is brought up at least once. :(
Is it just me or is it just a brand thing?
I dunno, but I can tell you that I think it's wrong.
Sorry if I offended anyone, but I felt this needed to be said!!
