Logic Problem: Nails Nails Nails

The scientists at Persephone labs are releasing a set of nail polish colors. From the included clues, can you identify the product name (one is called “Squirt”), the color of each shade (one is purple), the type of polish (one is matte), and who invented each one? 

1. April did not invent the nail polishes named “Oxford Comma” or “Database Error;” Crystal did not invent the glitter polish.

2. The inventor who made the gel polish, which wasn’t orange, created “Squirt.”

3. The inventor who created the purple polish, which wasn’t the glitter or the flocked polish, named it “Database Error.” “Oxford Comma.”

4. Dormouse, who did not make glitter polish, made a gray polish, which she named “Unicorn Horde.”
