Jordana Purple Glam--My Nail Polish Pet Peeve

I've come to the conclusion that I have a nail polish pet peeve. There are few things about polishes that irritate me.... too thin formula, too thick formula, long drying time, and etc. That's part of the game, so I can manage, but colors like the following really tick me off. They seem like cop outs.

Jordana Purple Glam
Purple Glam is a purple frosty shimmer with holographic glitter and holographic bar glitter.

This is probably very picky, but this formula is crap. It's patchy and inconsistent, but what I hate most is they've taken an already ugly color (thanks to the frosty finish) and loaded it with glitter as if that makes it look better. No, fail. This is a gritty ugly mess. You cannot save ugly frosty colors by adding glitter. I believe some Sally Hansen Xtreme Wears this past fall attempted to do the same thing. It just looks like they got lazy and couldn't figure out how to save a color, so they threw some glitter in it.

I know you're thinking, why did you buy this then? Well, in the bottle I just saw glitter. Glitter has some power of me, so I'm drawn to it. As that famous saying goes "all that glitters is not gold". I think this is the situation here. Oh well.

Before I go..you must feast your eyes on this insane amount of cuteness!
I saw this picture online last night, and I've become obsessed with how freaking cute it is. If you're having a bad day this picture brings instant happiness!

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I haven't really been happy with Jordana polishes lately. Bought a few glitter one and the application and how many coats I have to put and yet not one look decent. But on the side note lol that is one super cute puppy. AWW!

  2. Eek! I don't know if this polish could have been more of a fail. :(

    That IS a stinkin' cute photo!!!

  3. This whole post made me smile. Your reaction to the polish is priceless and I am glad you honestly documented it for us. I have been there before with polish. And thanks for countering it with cuteness at the end :)

  4. I beleive I" have this, either that or I have one just like it from another brand (I'm too lazy to go check) and the application was absolutely horrendous! It was soooo gritty I even put two coat of top coat on top and it still felt disgusting. I didn't find the color to be that ugly but I had to take it off immediately, it was a real let down.

  5. It doesn't look like a fail from your photos!

  6. I think it looks lovely. Where did you get your Jordana's some place in Orlando? email me nailsbeautiqued (at)yahoo (dot)com Thanks :)
