Mini Rant: Crème

For those that know me, know that I'm bilingual. And if you've heard me speak with my family, you'll often here some "frenglish" or "franglais" (occasionally through in an english word in a french sentence and vice versa).

Now, if we're describing something (in English) that is cream in colour or texture, we don't go calling it "crème". Seriously, what is wrong with these companies that go throwing that word around? It honestly irritates me. You see this a lot with nail polish. "Bright violet crème". Seriously? You can't just say Bright violet cream? You don't sound any fancier throwing a french word in there.

It just annoys me.  /end rant
