Hi everyone! Maybe you’ve seen this floating around tumblr via the American Apparel blog. They took an image from my nail art blog and are using it as an ad for their nail lacquer line. I’ve been attempting to communicate with them privately, but have gotten little response other than a form e-mail telling me they’re looking into it and they’ll get back to me. Right.
It’s okay - I have no problem pursuing other avenues of contact.
If the concept of a large corporation taking an artist’s image for their own gain without the artist’s permission doesn’t bother you, maybe the fact that none of these nail polishes were from AA will. I used 12 different colors from Wet N Wild, Revlon, Confetti, CQ, Sinful Colors, Spoiled, and Maybelline. I have never used/owned AA polishes.
It’s like AA made me a sandwich where the bread is made out of false advertising and the lunchmeat is made out of copyright infringement. It tastes bad.
Special thanks to my friends and to the wonderful folks over at Reddit Laqueristas for all the support!
