Nail Art For Oddballs

Making your nails look cool can be hard. Designs that look good on one hand, tend to look a little sketchy on your dominant hand.

You can get them done professionally, sure, but that can get pricy, and when that first chip happens?

So, you’ll be happy to hear that we have some awesome solutions to your bland nail problems!


They’re called Nailed It!, and they’re amazing. Various styles perfect for every day, or cosplay, they’re super easy to apply, they stay on, chip free, for a good long time, and then they’re just as easy to get off!

Perfect for long, and short nails alike, grab ’em before they’re gone!

Stickers are a problem

So, here’s the thing about stickers. They’re awesome! You see a cool sticker, you just HAVE to have it, right? You buy it, you get all excited, and then, if you’re like me, you put it in a drawer. That’s it. You can’t use it, because once you use it, it’s gone! It’s over for that sticker, and then you never have it again! This is my eternal sticker quandary.

The 80’s were a great time for stickers, because it was perfectly normal to carry around your sticker book. You’d keep them all in the book, show them off, trade them. But they stayed alive! You never had to commit to putting your sticker ON anything permanently. But, time has moved on, and now, stickers aren’t for the faint of heart. Sure, some of you are brave, you’ll put them on your laptops and monitors, cars and lockers, you’ll even put them right on your fridge! You’ll do things with them, share them and show the world your beloved stickers! Unless you’re like me. Then, you just have a great big drawer of stickers that you love, and cherish, and no one gets to see.

Speaking of stickers, The Attic has a crazy number of super awesome stickers that you might wanna take a look at. And maybe buy. And stick in a drawer? Well, that’s up to you.

We’ve been working overtime to try to GET YOU THESE COLORS and now, it’s GOING TO HAPPEN! As always, backorders will ship in the order they were received and ALL backorders WILL be getting the same goodies and treats as due to new orders placed this month, because you people are AMAZING and you have waited SO long. We THANK YOU SO MUCH for your patience. The vast majority of you have been AWESOME about this. We also thank you for shopping in the Attic overall. There’s a lot of stores out there, and we’re just little guys, but we do our best to give you what you want and we thank you SO much for supporting our efforts this past decade!!!

There’s Good News And Bad News

OMG you guys, seriously.

So, we’re back from our inventory/vacation extravaganza. It was excellent. There were fish and horses and all sorts of tropical wonders.

Media Luna

But now we’re back. We’re packing orders and shipping stuff out. And here’s where the badness starts. After yet ANOTHER call to the Special Effects supplier, the new update is that we’ll be getting our order “in about a week.” We know, this is a nightmare. Trust us when we say that we’re not happy about it either. This is becoming one of those long national nightmares that makes everyone’s hair equally hideous. You see, the way Special Effects works is they don’t have a constant manufacturing process. Every couple of months, they pump out a few colors that have a limited shelf life. Because of this, there are times where the system gets backed up and everyone is doomed to pale streaky locks. It sucks. So what can we do? Well, we’ve decided that because this issue happens at LEAST once a year, if not more often, something has to be done. To help you all out, we’re now stocking some Manic Panic shades and those ship IMMEDIATELY. Which shades? The ones that correspond to the worst hit of the Special Effects line. So you pinky pinks and turquoise kids won’t have to live in pale misery. If you currently have an outstanding order for Special Effects, and you’d like to switch it to MP brand, just let us know. We’ll ship out the Manic Panic version and you won’t be charged the additional fee (MP is $1 more.) No, it won’t be EXACTLY the same shade. However, Hot Hot Pink is a VERY close match to Atomic Pink, and Vampire Red works well for Blood Red. Here’s some examples:

Oh yeah!

Hot Hot Pink

Blood Red

Sonic Green

Atomic Turquoise

So, there you go, not an EXACT match, but close enough for horseshoes and hand grenades, no? And the best part is, that we can stock these colors ALL year, without fail. We’ll still be carrying Special Effects, but because we don’t want you guys to have to deal with this kind of wait, we’re going to stock Manic Panic too. These are the Manic Panic Amplified colors, so they DO last longer than standard Manic Panic and they come in the bottles you’re used to, for easier application. You use them the exact same way and you can even use our application tutorial for the best results. So, there you have it. The good and the bad. We’re only doing the even exchange deal until the Special Effects arrive, and once they do, we’ll ship that out immediately. So live fast, and dye your hair, now, with no waiting!

We’re Back! A Note From The Attic

Guys, holy cats. We had no power FOREVER. Hurricane Irene turned out to be less of a danger and more of a tremendous pain in the ass.


No, I won't destroy your kitchen so you can get an awesome insurance claim AND you have to clean me up! Ha HA!

We’re still in the midst of cleanup, but orders are going out pretty regularly now and we’ll be back up and running with custom work shortly! Thanks for being so patient and for all of the inquiries about how we’ve been making out in the mess. To thank you for all of the customer awesomeness, we’re extending our free shipping deal! All orders of $75 and up get FREE U.S. shipping! In addition, use code FALL10 and you’ll get 10% off ANY order no matter where you live! We’re working on adding our full line of fall merchandise to the shop, so be sure to check in often! And the next blog update, we promise, will be back to your regularly scheduled amusement.
