Welcome! So glad you stopped by my little bit of blogdom. Here I share my hobbies of nail polish, nail art and glue-on nails.

"Watch this space"

Watch this space. Watch THIS space. What this SPACE. 

Nailene tweets:
"Want the latest in artificial nail adhesives? Our new Nailene Ultra Tabs, only in the UK, will soon be Stateside! Watch this space for info!"

Ok. Or just, yanno, go to CVS in Costa Mesa CA. Because that's where I found them in August.

Why do they say ONLY in the UK?  I just don't get that. I mean, maybe they are in limited release in the US, but they are not ONLY in the UK any longer. Infact, they are manufactured in Lake Forest, CA. That's on the backside of the Nailene Ultra Tabs packages that I have.

So whaddua I do?

Do I tweet: Um, ok, then why do I have them in my possession here in the USA?

Do I just let it go?

My head is going to EXPLODE!

And while I'm on a rant...

There's a certain fake nail company, which I will not name right now, who allows people to post pics on their FB page, LIE that the pics are theirs, and the pics do NOT belong to them.  Yeah, they are stolen pics. Very easily researched online.  And I wrote to the nail company, told them what's going on, where to find the stolen and obviously professionally shot photo, and yet they do nothing. And FB does nothing.

I've had at least one of my own pics stolen from a FB posting and I guess that's just fine and dandy. After that happened, I started to put my logo into just about EVERY photo I posted on here, to the point of being obnoxious. 

I HATE thieves and despise lying!

What you think about stolen photos? Have you ever had a photo stolen? What did you do? Have you ever found someone else's photo that you knew was obviously stolen? What did you do about that?

Am I making too big of a deal about this?  Tell me what you think in the comments below...

I don't think you're making a big deal about the photos. What's yours is yours, and you should protect that! I totally understand. However, I don't know what to do about it. So I'm no good in that area. :P

Maybe the Nailene tabs are limited release in the US.I haven't seen them where Nailene is sold here in Texas.As for stolen photos,I totally understand why this would be upseting.I caught some stolen photos last year and e-mailed the two bloggers whose photos had been re-appropriated.They appreciated my feedback.I don't know what do about it if my pics get stolen,because I have no idea how to watermark photos,and even watermarking doesn't seem to stop theft.

Thanks Olivia--just burns me up yanno?

Thanks Thalie--I guess I was just lucky to spot the tabs when and where I did. People stealing pictures and calling them their own really suck!

That was great of you to alert the bloggers! And it's true, watermarking doesn't stop thieves.

Thanks for "listening" to me rant ladies!
