So I have decided to do occasional posts called "Thoughts..." - probably most often on Sunday nights here in Denmark - just like this post!
And I will try to keep these posts shorter than this first post!
"Thoughts deep enough to make you put your paw under your chin and close your eyes" - quote by Findus in a philosophical moment, not to be confused with sleep!
Today I want to inform you of two changes on the blog - and share some random thoughts and ask a question or two :)
When I started the page Indies & Co in the top menu I was lazy, I copied all the polish names from my spreadsheet.
BUT the cell formatting moved with it making it impossible to write full lines with more info, just like I do on my Chanel swatches page.
SO the other day I removed the formatting, and I knew in advance that the effect of it would mean a lot of work.
I spent an entire day removing a lot of empty lines, marking the swatched polishes in bold and last but not least edit every single one of them back to "open in a new window" all over again.
Then I added collection names to all the polishes I could find collection names on, so now it looks like I originally intended - so I hope you sometimes use the Indies & Co page, it has a lot of useful information :)
Later - and not yet done patting my back - I remembered how often I get the question: "How many holos do you own?".
I had a such an energetic and geeky superwoman day, so I decided also to go through all posts going 1½ years back to add the "holo" tag to the relevant posts, and I did.
You can see the result in the right hand menu in the "A few tags" area just below the "Brands" section, at the moment 284 posts are holo posts - including nail art, Dance legend WOW Prism etc...
It was QUITE an eye opener to go back like that!
Among the most recent 100 posts going back to the end of November - approximately 75 needed the holo tag.
Among the next 100 approximately back to the middle of October 50-60 did - going further back to the end of August it was around 30 as far as I remember - and when I got back to winter 13/14 and spring only a few needed the holo tag.
So it's safe to say that the indie makers convinced me I could wear holos, they make beautiful holos that have a formula like normal shimmers and creams - and with my ridged nails I love that!
BUT OMG during last winter and spring, I really swatched a LOT of Chanel polishes - and I know a lot of my long time readers maybe didn't quite share that burning interest with me LOL - am I right?
So I really, really hope you don't mind me showing soooo many holos - because I really love them :) (not how I asked that question without actually doing so because I'm afraid of your reply :D)
I do however think that when spring gets closer I will dive into more shimmers and creams again, but for now there will be heading a lot of holo posts your way...
Thank you for reading - if you made it this far!
