Liebster Award and some LOLCATs

I have been lucky enough to be nominated for the Liebster award!!  It’s such a joy to share my nails with you all, and to know that you view my blog and actually LIKE IT!  Ya never know when you start a blog how it will work out.  Especially since most of the people in my life couldn’t give two hoots about my fingernails.  So, I start a blog and expect complete strangers to give a hoot??  Well, it turns out– many hoots have been given!  Over 11,000 hoots (views) to be exact!  And those ‘complete strangers’ are no longer strangers… you’re all like my online friends now!  It’s so cool to pull up wordpress and check in with you all everyday !

I had several Liebster nominations piling up…why did it take me so long to write this post?  Not sure,  maybe because it feels like bragging?  Anyone else know what I’m talking about? lol  Well, I got over it, and the time has finally come for me to shout a big THANKS to the following bloggers who nominated me.  There’s some gems here so check ’em out:

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT BRIJIT ASKED ME:

  1. What made you start blogging? — That I was always painting my nails and wanted to talk about them… but no one really cared.   So I decided to widen my audience!
  2. Do your ‘real life’ friends and family know about your blog? Do they follow? –Yeah my friends and family know but most don’t read my blog regularly.  Well, maybe more people read it than I think?  But they don’t hit the ‘follow’ button so I shall never know.
  3. How many blogs do you follow? –I follow 296 blogs in wordpress.  A few more from outside of wordpress too.
  4. Are they all beauty blogs? –Nope.  Most are about nails, crafts, cooking and diet/nutrition.
  5. What is your must-have nail polish right now? –Zoya Ali.  I got it for free a few months back as part of my Zoya order around valentines day.  I only tried it a few wks ago and it’s hot pink and I love how bright it is!  I can’t wait to wear it this summer when I’m rocking a nice tan.  Would look great on my toes too!
  6. Your favorite nail art technique?  –Chevron French Manicures.  They make your nails look long and strong and if you use nail guide stickers they are super easy.
  7. Do you take part in nail art challenges?  I’m participating in my first one right now.  Lotsa fun!
  8. Are you more of a summer or winter person?  –Both.  I really love them both.  Spring and autumn are just blah for me.  I like the extremes: snowy white winter… or sunny and hot!
  9. How do you store your nail polish?  –I have a built-in floor to ceiling corner shelf in the main living area of my house.  I sort by brand…and they’re all pretty on display.  I also have a lot of boxes/containers that I store my not-so- faves in.  That helps keep everything consolidated.
  10. Do you prefer cats or dogs? —I love all animals!  I have two cats but I really want a dog too.
  11. If you were a biscuit, what type of biscuit would you be? –In the U.S. a biscuit is a roll that you eat with dinner.  But biscuit may also mean a COOKIE, right?  I guess I would be an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie. Good and bad all at once..but nice and sweet!

Thank you for reading my blog!  If you made it all the way through- then you deserve a prize.  Here’s a LOLCAT just for you….

  1. I love your reason for starting a blog!! That’s exactly why I’ve started mine!!! I always get excited when I get an email telling me someone has liked my post, most of my friends just roll their eyes and my boyfriend likens it to painting AirFix models!!!

  2. I enjoy watching what you do with your nails because my nails just do not grow well so I just do not have pretty nails. It is fun seeing what you come up with , I have never seen nail art like yours before, it really is an art form !! I am glad you got nominated, you deserve it !! It is a lot of work to do your nails so often and then to take the pictures, I am glad you got recognized for all your hard work !!
