Blogger Awards

Hey all!

Today I'll be sharing with you some blogger awards I got by way of Hillary at Chipped Nail Blog and Kelly (?) from Nailpocalypse (I totally keep writing Nailpocalybse, maybe I'm an upside-down dyslexic?)

This is going to be a bit of a wall 'o text so it's going to be under a jump cut!

Hillary is a new blogger like me with very clean swatch pictures and some nail art. I really like the layout of her blog too for some reason. Anyway, she tagged me for the Versatile Blogger award and the instructions are:
  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. 
  •  Include a link to their blog. 
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. 
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
  •  Share 7 things about yourself.

7 random things:
- I have 3 pets: a golden retriever, a cat and a stray dog that's a teensy bit cray-cray.

- I've recently realized I prefer my nails a bit shorter than they are now, but I can't bring myself to file them down because I'm worried they won't grow again. Stupid? Yes.

- I can make sushi

- My boyfriend's mom makes beautiful glass jewelry and decorations

- I have very straight hair, everyone around me envies it because I don't have to do anything to it, but I wish it had more body and could hold curls

- I'm a dork. I hadn't really noticed how big of a dork until I got together with my boyfriend, who allows my dorkiness tho shine through.

- I ran out of stuff to say. For now.

I also got nominated by the weird mastermind behind Nailpocalypse. For all we comment on each other's blogs and the budding bromance (I hope) we've got going on, I don't really know her name. I just know her as KawaiiKagura, which makes me think of her as a ninja.

I got tagged for three awards: the Kreativ Blogger award, Liebster and Appreciation Award.

The rules for this award are:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award; with their blog link in your post.
  • Answer the following 4 questions.
  • Give the blogger appreciation award to other bloggers.
  • Let the bloggers know you awarded them.

The Questions are -
1. How long have you been blogging?
My first post was on January 24,2012. Though I didn't post a mani I liked until February 16.

2. What are the 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
I needed something to do I think. Something that added some structure to my life. I had also gotten hooked on all the pretty nails and wanted mine to grow out.

3. What types of blogs do you like to follow/read?
I mostly read nail related blogs. Be it a swatching blog, nail art or stamping, I like 'em all! I tend to prefer blogs where I can get a sense of the person writing. ThePolishaholic and Nailpocalypse are those kinds blogs that are fun to read.

4. What is one thing you would like to improve as a blogger/ on your blog?
My picture-taking capabilities :D. That and I really need to practice my stamping skills again.

The rules for this award are:
  • Post the link to who gave you the award.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Share 7 random things about yourself (See above :D) 
  • Pass it on to 10 bloggers and inform them.

The Questions are -

1. Favourite song?
I have very many too many. Right now I'm digging Erase Me by Kid Cudi ft. Kanye West. Adele can do no wrong though, so she'll always count.

2. Favourite Dessert?
Anything chocolatey, cheesecakes or pastries I guess. I bake quite a lot, but don't eat most of the things I make. I don't wanna get fat.

3. What drives me insane?
When I KNOW something is going to happen and I tell my boyfriend, who ignores me. Then everything happens like I thought it would and it's even more maddening!

4. When I'm mad?
I get really quiet. Eventually people notice and ask what's wrong and I say nothing. Unless it's my mom, then I just unload.

5. Favourite pet?
For years I swore I was a cat person, but my golden has completely changed my mind about dogs! I'd also REALLY LOVE a pony.

6. Black or White?

7. Biggest Fear?
Disappointing people, I have issues. (Didn't have to change this one, just ditto)
8. My daily attitude? that my fault? Welp, too late now!

9. Whats perfect?
A rainy day by myself at my house just watching movies with no one bugging me. I'm a bit of a couch potato.

10. Guilty pleasure?

I don't really know what to do with this one.

Now for the nominations, I have a couple of blogs bookmarked that are starting too so I'd like to tag them soon as I find the links :S. 

Once again, thanks to these ladies for tagging me on these awards! It's still shocking that at least some people care about what I do so I'm very appreciative to you guys. See you tomorrow with new nails!


  1. Love sushi. I want to do sushi nails sometime.

    1. That sounds like a good idea! I'll leave it to you to glue some rice on your nails or something :D

  2. You and me could write a rad bromance. You had it right, I am indeed a Kelly. Also it is now entirely your fault that I will be stalking around the house all night pretending I'm a ninja :P

    1. That could be nominated for one of the best comments EVAR. I regret nothing, if your husband should have something to say about your ninja antics just throw your bird at him. But do it NINJALY...(that's a word).


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I really cherish each and every piece of feedback I might get.
