Wicked Bells

It never ceases to amaze me how the nail polish world freaks out over little things.  The latest being the demise of Google Reader.  Now I admit, I use and love Reader and seriously am gonna hate to see it go.  It is the end of the world?  No but reading the posts out there you would think otherwise.

I did some research and it seems they've been trying to rid the world of Reader since 2010 and something always stops it from actually going away.  There are several petitions out there if you wish to sign up.  I have played around with two different options this morning and I think I like Feedly the best.  Seems the most similar to Reader to me.  I still have not figured out all the kinks, but I am not one to read everyday and I like that you can do oldest posts first.  That is my number one feature that I want.  I'm unclear on when it marks things as read.  So I am still playing.  I am still hoping that Reader will stick around.

The drama comes in where people have now linked Reader to the Google Friend Connect widget.  I have no idea who started this rumor, but I googled GFC and I cannot see where there are any immediate plans for it's demise.  It is NOT in any way connected to the Reader. All the Reader does is get it's info from who you follow on GFC.  They are two different entities.  There are a bunch of posts out there freaking out saying make sure you follow me via this or that.

Trust me, if people like your blog, they will find a way to follow you.  There is no need for begging people.  Why are we polish people a bunch of drama queens?

My other comment for today has to do with a comment I got the other day.  Someone actually misses my stamping.  I must admit, stamping for me is my passion and it's much quicker to get done!  I've been trying so hard to mix things up, that I haven't stamped at all in quite a while.  So this one's for you.  You know who you are!

Here is the silly bottle shot.


This is Rescue Beauty Lounge Grunge, Chick Polish Wicked and Bettina Jingle Bells. Get my title now?

I started with a layer of Grunge and a layer of Bells, since Bells was very sheer.  I did an accent of Wicked.  Wicked is a bronzey brown shimmer and to die for!  Here are the starting shots.

Never mind the dent in my accent nail!  I made a boo boo.  Next I grabbed plate SDP-N and stamped with the opposite color.  Here is that step.

Yes it's been a while since I stamped and wore brown!  This is my kind of mani!  I finished this off with my funky in the opposite color and voila.  Here are the results. Stupid me forgot my signature close up and macro shots. DUH.

I know this is not for everyone out there-but I kind of like this!  I almost added more sparkle but left it as is.

One last thought-you don't even need to use a Reader-if you go into your dashboard, the posts and blogs you follow is right there to peruse.

What are your thoughts on this drama? Have you too missed my signature stamping?

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
