Haul, Review & Gradient Swatch: "Love, Charlotte" Polish

A few days ago I got these really awesome nail polishes at a store called Charlotte Russe.
It was very unexpected because Charlotte Russe is known for reasonably priced trendy clothing & shoes.  
I don't shop there, but my friends wanted to see what they had.
I'm glad we stopped in there because I never knew they had their own brand of polish called "Love, Charlotte"!

I was a little hesitant at first, because I figured they would have a really bad formula, but I tested all of them in the store and the application was great and not streaky at all.

The colors don't have names on the bottle but I got a light pink which was "Pastel POP" brand, hot pink, purple, fine silver hologram glitter, large silver holo glitter & a large mixed light & dark purple and silver holo from the "Love, Charlotte" brand.
I decided to do a sponge gradient (click here for a mini-tutorial on sponge gradients)
I used the light pink, dark pink & purple and topped it off with the fine silver holo glitter!
 The sun finally came back out so I got a shot in the sunlight too!

If you live near a Charlotte Russe store, I would totally recommend stopping in to check it out!
They do have some polishes on their website, but there was definitely a better color selection in-store.
They were also on sale in the store but not online!
They were 2 for $3 and I also got an extra 10% off my purchase for giving them my email address, so I got all 6 polishes for around $18. 

Have a wonderful Sunday :)
