Normally I don't blog about something like this, but it really bothers me so I just have to do this. You know I entered the Challenge Show us your country on Parokeets. I had a lot of fun making that creation, but my joy is totally gone now.
Some people are saying in the comment that they are really disappointed with my entry because I used decals and the free hand painting isn't appreciated anymore. It kind of makes me angry because by saying that they suggest I don't appreciate that by entering with a decal and Konad creation instead of free hand painting. But I respect them all and everyone did their best. It wasn't in the rules that it has to be hand painted :(
Here you can see the rest, read the comment and vote in the poll at the right:
This is what I wrote in the comments there:
Sorry if I did something wrong I thought the challenge was to show your country with a mani or/and make up. Never knew it had to be hand painted. I carefully picked out some images that show you my country and made my own water decals of it and used Konad. Thought it was a nice way of showing my country (and t it would be fun to learn more about different country’s) guess some readers here don’t appreciate that. I takes time to make your own decals and on request of some people I blogged about it, why are people interest in how I make them if they can only criticize the use of it?
But I found it no need to talk about free hand isn’t appreciated, now you made it look like I don’t appreciate them but I love all their creations and respect them. Everyone did their best, what happend to respect and leave people for what they are?
Didn’t want to make such a fuss with my creation, guess I should withdraw myself?
Maybe nextime you can say in the rules that decals and Konad isn’t allowed and it is for only free hand painting? Instead the readers take it out on someone :(
Sorry that this had to be on your blog Parokeet ladies, it’s clear to me that my kind of nail art isn’t welcome so I know not the enter anymore.
But I’m really disappointed that people can’t have respect even if you don’t like what you see.
I started this blog because I love doing my nails and wanted to share it with others (also outside the Netherlands) I love stamping and making and using my self made water decals. But I guess it really isn't appreciated in "blog country" and only really free hand artists deserve respect for what they're doing. I do respect them I respect them a lot and found it amazing what they can paint. But I also respect people who use stamping, stickers, decals etc.
Everyone loves what they are doing if it's by hand or stamping so why don't respect the love they have for it. There is nothing wrong with some criticism, but I think especially in a challenge or contest just don't say anything if you can't say something nice. Everyone does their best in what they like and want to do....just respect that even if you don't like what you see!
