Or really, WHO you blog about. Hautelook's most recent deal featuring Ginger + Liz nail polishes reminded me of an issue I'd heard about that I wanted to share with as many customers and fellow bloggers I could reach.
After a blogger wrote a post comparing G+L nail polishes to another company's (Diamond Cosmetics) G+L sent the blogger a cease and desist letter, threatening her with a $200,000 lawsuit for "product defamation."
Seriously? I said this on the Polish-Aholic's Anonymous forum on Facebook and I'll say it again: I find it to be petty and reprehensible business practice. If you can't handle a little criticism what are you doing in the retail business? I know I will certainly never be purchasing any G+L polishes and I urge others to do the same. Don't support a company that attacks it's customers!
If you want to read the letter she received, it can be found on her blog here. If you've never read Daily Polish before, I highly recommend it, there are tons of wonderful swatch pictures and nail care tips.
