The responses to our Tipsy stickers are through the roof! Well…through the web.
I'm really excited about life right now. It's not always the best but there's a bright future ahead and I cannot believe how supportive everyone is. For the past 4 years I have questioned how to use my networks, and as soon as I found my niche it has all come together. This is definitely a blessing. My mom was like, stop claiming not having $ becz it's gonna come. so yeah….I believe that.
My bloggy inspirations have become friends. My friends have become family. It’s an honor to be able to travel, and I do not take any of this for granted. I’m going hard in the print for the painters of nails. See you at the top ♥
OH! And have another sneak peek at my handpicked inspirational photos for our first issue of Tipsy. You can take a guess on what will be coming soon!
I posted this photo of DJ Roxy Cottontail rocking her BLUE tribute manicure by Naomi Yasuda onto NailPorn via photographer Ian Reid awhile ago and now I strongly feel like it’s time to pull from the archives again. There have been one too many sources reporting inaccurate information. So LET’S GET TO THE POINT AGAIN! Those are not Beyonce’s hands. Why do these types of assumptions get tossed into the web? No research, no love. Revoke your nail card now!
Even if you’re not keeping up with the games, by now most of Tumblr has seen nailsdid on the athletes of this summer’s Olympics. Especially the work done by Sophy Robson’s NailPorn. Robson and her team of manicurists have been going hard in the paint literally at the forefront but unfortunately due to politics, cannot announce their lovely labor at this time. That’s the tricky part about this site, things can get lost in the Tumblr universe. But if you’ve been keeping up with the tweets and tumbles, you already know the difference between derivative and NailPorn official. If you don’t, revoke your nail card now! Just kidding! But it is important to be conscious of accuracy no matter who’s behind the design. People always want their proper credit so do the homework and shoutout the source.
Continue to show love and always know what’s up, thank you! x
