I don't know why I keep thinking about this, but since I am I figured I would vent a little. There is this blog I follow and I have been following it since almost it's inception. I'm not sure how I found it, but it seemed like a good blog. It had a nice mix to it and I seemed to like the blogger. But now I find this blogger just gets under my skin. I feel like when you meet someone new and they are really nice and you think you might have a lot in common with the person and you might become friends and then you get to know them and learn, they are kind of a loser. That is how I feel. This blogger seems to hide a lot of insecurities in mean comments. It is a bit infuriating at times. They are almost always baseless if you really read them. Like: "This polish looks terrible with my skin tone, I don't understand what they were thinking when they created a color that would look so horrible on everyone. This company needs to really get it together." Now this is not a direct quote - it is just an example of the type of writing on the blog. Maybe I am more sensitive now that I have my own line. But my issue is this, this blogger seems to kiss the butt of a lot of polish companies on Twitter, like sickeningly so -n just out there for all of us to see, and then the posts for those companies that she gets free polish from are glowing and the those she doesn't get free polish from are like the example above. I mean really just because something doesn't work for you, doesn't mean the polish is bad. It just means it didn't work for your skin tone. You can dislike the color, heck hate the color, but don't dog out the company because it doesn't work for you! Dog the company for formula, customer service, lack of uniqueness or something valid, not because you personally did not like the color! Now with that being said, I think it is good when a blogger writes why they don't like a color, because if my skin tone is similar, then it is a color I probably want to stay away from, but it doesn't mean the company is at issue here. Am I wrong? (By the way these are not posts about Cult Nails polish - so this is not a personal to me thing - it is another company I saw her kiss ass too on Twitter and then turn around and dog on her blog which seems it's because she did not get free product from the company. Just from my personal viewing of the situation of the ass kissing that didn't work) But she dogs out the company or the polish and then as if she feels bad, says something like, "But it is still one of my favorite brands". I'm sorry that is like talking behind your friends back all the time and then to her face telling her - you're my best friend. Ugh! I can only imagine what this girl is like in real life! I'm glad I'm not her friend!
Anyway even though these posts have nothing to do with Cult Nails, I am noticing a trend with this blogger. I used to like her blog, now find myself wishing her blog would just go away. I thought about unfollowng her, (seems obvious, stop following the blog if you don't like it! DUH!) but then I think she would probably really dog out Cult Nails because she is upset that I stopped following her and not because there's a real issue. So I stopped reading her blog for a while and then like an idiot I got sucked in cause I wanted to see a swatch she had on there (even though I have already seen it like 15 times on other blogs!). And of course there she is dogging out the polish company again for something that is so baseless and personal and nothing to do with the actual polish! AAAHHH! Why did I get sucked in? It has been days and I am still kicking myself for reading the post! But seriously - enough venting, I need to finish organizing my closet, put my laundry away, bathe the dogs, clean up and then if I am good with my chores, I will finally get to do my nails and get everything ready for the pre-sale in hopes that this one blogger buys my polish and dogs me personally on her blog! Then I'll know I made it! HA! OK now I'm just being mean. Hope you all have a great Sunday!
