Hi ladies! Did my title scare you? Sorry. I apologize. The blog post IS going to be mainly polish, I just feel crappy. Ick. And I want to touch quickly on something that has been bugging me lately. So, I'll do that first.
Blogger has been having a lot of issues lately. It's been an absolutely constant battle to get things to work right. Or, the way I think they should work. First (and the biggest problem I have), I had to delete intense debate because I couldn't get it to work with the new blogger format. That seriously bugged me. I LOVED knowing that when I replied directly to a comment, it was going to notify the person that I had done so. I seriously appreciate every comment I get, and I like to let you all know that I read them. Honestly, that's why I have to approve comments. It ensures that I read each and every one and that I don't miss any. I know I say I'm going to reply to them, but how many of you (unless you ask a direct question) actually remember to check to see if there are replies? It doesn't happen. You read the post (or even just look at the pics. I'm guilty of that too, and I'm okay with you doing it!), leave a comment and go about your day. So, you can imagine my absolute giddiness when I heard there were direct replies on blogger!
Then that feeling went away. Direct comments don't really mean crap. They are threaded now (yay for organization!), but you still have to check to see if your comment has been replied to. It's crap. If you are going to improve upon something, do it right. I guess it's a step in the right direction, but they could have taken it all the way. After all, that is what they get paid to do. (Which makes me wonder why the blogroll issue hasn't been fixed yet......)
I guess what I'm getting at here is this: Do you guys mind that I don't reply if you know I read them? Do you check back for them? If I found a way to email you replies, would you like me to do that? I want your thoughts. I feel really crappy when I don't answer comments, but I've seriously never held a conversation on these threads. When I do comment, I feel like it goes unnoticed. That's discouraging. Plus, I want you to feel like I AM reading them, and I AM listening. So, tell me what I can do!
Now, onto what you all come here for! I went a little crazy around Christmas and bought 8 Cult polishes. At the time, I felt like they were the remainder of what I NEEDED (which of course, now includes Toxic Seaweed *fingers crossed*). Today I am showing you Mind Control.
I gasped when I pulled this polish out of it's wrapping! It's gorgeous. I don't think I had seen good swatches of it yet and I was WOW'd. Check it out:
Mind Control is an extremely greyed-out purple with tons and tons of pink/fuchsia micro glitter. It is an absolute stunner! I feel mysterious when I wear it. I know that sounds strange, that a polish can make me feel that way, but trust me. It does. I also can't stop staring at it! If you get one Cult Nails polish, please do yourself a favor and make it this one!
Finally, I don't think my baby makes the blog often enough. I came across this picture while I was hunting down the Cult photos:
It was already edited and looked super cute, so I put it in the post. Wrigley says HI! lol
So, let me know what you think about the commenting situation, eh? I love you guys! Thanks for reading :)
