OMG, WTF! And Carol's Daughter Mold.... again.

Ah, now I know why China Glaze called it the OMG collection... Because when you put it on, you're like, "OMG THIS IS CHIPPED ALREADY!!!"

Maybe they should release a color called WTF. Seriously. This stuff chipped within the hour! I did my usual Nailtek II, two coats of polish, Seche Vite and Qtica Half Time, which usually gets me 4-7 days of wear if I can wait that long... But, no. This chipped immediately. I didn't have any oil on my nails. I always clean with acetone or Seche Erase or Creative (Sorry, CND) ScrubFresh or NailFresh... I don't want my polish chipping before I'm ready to take it off.

Oh well.

I know this is something I've said many times before, but I will say it again. LUSH has the WORST customer service. Ever.

Moving on... I've been getting a lot of hits on "Carol's Daughter mold" and I think I can understand your frustration. It seems to be one of those natural companies that use no parabens. Now, while there is a lot of speculation on the safety of parabens, personally, I have never seen any definite proof or evidence enough for me to stop using products with parabens. In fact, I have a hard time using products without them. Why? You need parabens. They keep your products from getting moldy and growing all sorts of stuff that you can't see that can give you a wicked skin condition or infection.

I only own one Carol's Daughter product, and that's the Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner, and as far as I can tell it's still fine, but I might give it a test to make sure. Yes, you can actually test your products for bacteria and fungus. Very CSI, right?
