A few quick notes:

Firstly, you may have noticed my REALLY long blog roll, complete with pictures. I use this instead of following blogs to keep track of blogs I like reading. If you blog isn't on there, let me know! I do try to limit my blog roll to blogs I actually really like. There are some qualifications that aren't super important, I like nails that I like, not too long, not bitten down past the quick. It's not that I won't follow you if you're not a recovering nail biter, but seeing nice nails that are (relatively, I know it's challenging) nicely manicured makes me happy. Also, I'd prefer blogs to feature polishes I can get, otherwise I lemm and lemm and just end up heart broken. And, lastly, the blogs have to be updated at least once every month. Otherwise they are taking up valuable space on my blog roll! Exceptions for this would be if the blogger is going through a hard time or on vacation and the absence is not normal for them.
Basically, I like seeing pretty polish on pretty nails pretty frequently. If you have nails that you polish and then blog about, let me know and I'll add you to the blog roll!

Next, I have 308 followers. This is amazing/fantastic/unbelievable. Now, where are you all? I have over 300 followers that visit my blog (I have a counter ^-^) and I get one, maybe two comments a post? I know bloggers that have fewer followers but loads more comments. It just makes me feel like I'm talking to myself, you know? I know there are some stand-out posts (Galaxy Nails) that garner attention, but it'd be nice to see a little love even when I don't spend an hour on my nails. I don't think I'll be doing a giveaway soon because of this, I think most of my followers followed just for the chance of free stuff (shame, shame) and now don't read my blog anymore. I don't want more followers just out to earn stuff, so I don't think a giveaway will be coming in the near future.

Lastly, I'm sorry for this rant. I know y'all are here to see polish, not listen to me list why I'm a bit upset. So, polish!
$OPI Bare to Be Different. Because I like sheers.

  1. just wanted to say, i read/look at about 25-30 nail blogs a day, and i might make one to three comments a month. i usually only comment if the author is looking for a suggestion or has a question i have the answer to. otherwise i mostly just admire. so just because people don't comment doesn't mean they don't care :)

  2. Hey there! I stumbled upon your blog, and I have to say that I was totally bowled over by your Galaxy post - that i one amazing job! :) That said, don't be too disheartened by the comments (or lack of) on your blog...It's just part and parcel of blogging...I don't get a lot of comments per post either relative to the number of followers, but I think people just tend to read and not comment, unless there is really something they feel they absolutely have to say. So I wouldn't worry too much about it :) I know personally, I read lots of blogs but comment a lot less, so I imagine it must be like that for lots of people.

    And congrats on your 300+ followers :) That's amazing :)

  3. i love how upfront you are! i love comments but only having 17 followers means theyre far and few between. i comment a lot to try and get views but i never say anything i dont mean, like, i dont blow smoke, i make comments or give compliments as theyre deemed appropriate lol. anyways - just started following your blog and i will be sure to comment as i always do (=

  4. I can relate! A bit after I started my blog, I got a random comment asking me when I was going to start doing give-aways. I was completely taken aback! I had barely dipped my toes into the waters of the blogging world and already a complete stranger was hitting me up for freebies! Sheesh.

    In any case, I don't happen to comment too often on others' blogs, but I do still follow and read often. Just so you know...if I'm quiet - I'm probably still out there admiring your lovely pictures and laughing at your ponderings. :)

  5. Yeah, don't do giveaways unless you really feel like dealing with people who only want free stuff. I say keep your money & buy yourself something pretty =)

    Side note: Your nails look gorgeous in the picture! Like porcelain.
