Meanwhile in the lives of those who have nothing better to do….

I’ve been manually cleaning up a hack on Nailblog for a few hours now. Please excuse the construction, mess and temporary new layout!

Part of me maniacally laughs in satisfaction and gratitude at having the knowledge and experience to so easily contain and clean up such a hack, however; the other half of me rages at the people who have nothing better to do than be scummy.

Obviously there are sites out there with more important world issues at hand than nailblog however at my last job I’ve actually talked to those individuals and {literally} listened to them as they sobbed at the realization that their entire year(s) work being lost. Sometimes personal such as a site dedicated to new moms while other times animal, philanthropy and true to the heart causes. I can recall stories of people who lost irreplaceable photos and while some people who say it’s “their fault for not having backups” I disagree as it is the cyber-criminal’s fault. SHAME ON YOU WHILE I SHAKE MY FISTS – NOBODY WANTS YOUR PAYDAY LOANS!

I digress… stay tuned!2rdd9

 

Indie Thursdays! Borough Babe Made

Borough Babe

Borough Babe “Fish Scales”

A polish I drooled over from afar for at least 6 months. I never dove in and tried it because I felt like it was one of those polishes that would be heavily disappointing and all I had to go off of was the bottle. I wont lie; the low amount of sales also made me think “there must be some reason people aren’t buying”. Which is 100% against my usual way of thinking and personal philosophies but nevertheless it was what it was and I stalked it from afar…

Well I finally broke down and decided I needed to try it.

Serum No 5 & I’m in heaven!

Serum No 5 Nail Polish

Today I am super, super excited to present some Serum No5

I have a huge, crippling soft spot for Indie lacquer. So much so that I started to get a little… used to and a little.. tired of glitter bombs 24/7. Shocking, I know.

Only to then receive a box full of goodies and I was truly. blown. away.

Glitz Bitz n' piecesChina Glaze Grafitti Glitter

An older collection from January/February 2013 so not new news however a bit of a rundown on performance -

Chunky. Not terribly so, but the positive of that means good coverage. Mainstream lacquer companies seem to have such a hard time getting their glitter to give good! While I love this collection, I do also wonder why mainstream lacquer companies feel the urge to put bar glitter in 3/4 of their “unusual” glitter polishes. Curious..

While Sallys are typically independent and their variety, let alone clearance, varies it’s a good reminder to check it whenever you stop by!

Score!
