Candy Crush Nails


Candy Crush — the game that you probably just looked away from to read this article — is getting creative with advertising.

Apparently, extreme nails are a popular form of advertising in Japan — so Candy Crush recruited a known human billboard named Harutamu, and gave her a candy-laden set of nails.

Although, it doesn’t appear that Candy Crush needs any more advertising than what shows up unwarranted in your Facebook feed. Either way, you can go back to playing now, and thanks for listening.

The Conversation Heart Piñata Cake

Brought to us by Beth Jackson from Hungry Happenings, the Conversation Heart Piñata Cake is a giant request to “Be Mine.” And, it’s filled with little hearts that’ll help keep the conversation going all night long. Amirite?

This Photo of M&Ms Does Not Use Photoshop


Adobe Photoshop is an indispensable creative tool. But the digital manipulation software, when in the wrong hands, can be used for pure evil — such as for blackmailing purposes, or to make a celebrity or model look like they’re completely made from plastic.

So, it’s good to see someone bypass Photoshop completely — instead using good old-fashioned photo technique and creativity. Take this photo of M&Ms by Patrick on Flickr. It would be easy to pass the image off as an abuse of the rubber stamp tool and various filters. However, it’s nothing more than a bowl of candies under a glass covered in water droplets.
