Bug Description

**Just to clarify, I already fixed this, I'm just posting it so others can solve this issue. **

So, I just installed Freya, and pretty much immediately downloaded Elementary Tweaks. I switched over to the Dark theme, because I find it prettier. And I noticed that the text in the notifications area is still black, and black text on a dark gray background sucks to read. So, I started poking around the Elementary-Dev IRC channel and eventually found out what was wrong.

doing 'sudo nano /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/apps.css' allows you to edit the functionality of the theme.

In the Gala section, I was able to use this stub to fix my issue and set the text to a more readable color. White, in my case.

 .gala-notification GtkLabel {
    color: #fff;
