Love, Angeline Frolic Swatch & Review

Hi guys! Today I have a polish from Love, Angeline to share with you! I had heard of this brand a while back but after a #NailGlossip chat about under rated indies in April I decided to finally order since the brand was brought up a few times. I ended up getting 3 polishes and some of the Nail Shields (nail vinyls) Love, Angeline makes. To see a mani I did with the Nail Shields check out my Instagram here.

I have to say before I get into the review of the polish, I was pretty disappointed with this brands very slow shipping. When I placed my order the shipping turn around time said 5-10 business days, which was fine. After 13 business days and no tracking info I emailed the maker on her website and through Facebook checking to see what the status was. When I got a response I was told it would be mailed out the next day...awesome! A shipping label was created the next day but it wasn't actually dropped off at the post office until 6 days later. After the delay I got my order a couple days short of a month after I placed it. I do like the polishes and vinyls but if I decide to buy from Love, Angeline again it will probably be through a stockist. A month between placing an order and getting it is longer than I'd like to wait unless I am fully aware that is how long it will take when I purchase. Like I said, I do enjoy the polishes I bought and the vinyls, I just want to share my experience since that is really the whole point of having a blog haha :P

Onto the polish! Frolic is a magenta base with a subtle linear holo and iridescent flakies! The flakies don't show much in the photos but in person you could see them very well! The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had a nice consistency and opacity. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.

  2. Wow that is a really long time to wait. Thanks for being honest about your experience with all of us! also I know a lot goes into making polishes and ingredients can be expensive from suppliers but $15 seems a bit high?

  3. She has a lot of others that are cheaper, I think this one was on the more expensive side because of everything that was in it

  4. Hi Jen! Thanks so much for the review and photos featuring Frolic! I love this colors so, so much!

    I very much appreciate your candidness and honest experience with my brand. It is imperative for my business to be able to hear any and all feedback! I definitely had a major lull in processing orders the last two months, which I take full responsibility for. However, I have since hired help and have been able to put some things in place behind the scenes that is now allowing a much quicker turn around time. Thank goodness, there is nothing more stressful than being behind! Again, I appreciate your honesty. I hope that you choose to shop with me again so that I can have another opportunity to make up for your less than stellar experience. If I can do anything for you, please let me know. :)
