This is your effective smb.conf (all commented and default lines removed):
dns proxy = no
path = /home/profiles
browseable = no
comment = arch_home_server
path = /mnt/hd/
valid users = sweetth
writable = yes
strict allocate = yes
Do you have the '[global]' heading ?
As you can see, '[homes]' has part of the '[profiles]' share.
You need to fix your smb.conf and as it looks like you want to Samba as
