Hey everyone! Thanks to Allie over at Muffin Nails I have been nominated for the Liebster Award. I’m not really sure what this is, but what I get from it is that it helps to promote new blogs to help them gain followers. I’m glad for this nomination as I would love to have more followers 😀
Here are the rules:
- Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
- They must also answer the 11 questions the ‘tagger’ has set for them.
- They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
- They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
- These lucky bloggers must then be told.
- There’s no tag backs.
11 Fun Facts about me (Erica):
- I treat Owen (mine and Tyler’s dog) like my child, I call him my baby and myself his mommy. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
- I have been self-diagnosed with OCD.
- My fiancé thinks I’m crazy for starting this blog… oh well! 😀
- I own a 2008 Dodge Charger — her name is Petunia 😀
- My favourite TV show is Big Bang Theory. I wish I had friends like Sheldon, Leonard, Raj and Howard 😉
- I am a Twi-hard.
- My favourite colour is purple.
- I have to read before I go to bed or I can’t sleep. I have a Kobo and have logged over 300 hours on it in about a year.
- I want to build a shelf unit for my nail polish collection, but a) I have to wait till I have a house, and b) Tyler just shakes his head and tells me to stop buying polish so I wouldn’t have to build said shelf, lol!
- I have a slight obsession with Bath and Body Works candles.
- I have had mono but didn’t know I had it because my doctor told me that it was the “weakest case of mono he’s ever seen”. He said it might have something to do with the fact that I need to have about 10 hours of sleep every night (9pm-7am).
What Allie wants to know about me:
- If you could only buy 3 more polishes for the rest of your life, what would they be? Julep Morgan, China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Avon Aqua Fantasy
- How often do you paint your nails? Every day *blush* sometimes I even want to repaint them a couple hours after finishing a manicure.
- What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? I’m a very conservative eater, I don’t eat anything that I think I’m not going to like. For me, going out with sushi with my best friend was a big deal for me because I’m not a fish person.
- What’s your favourite nail trend? I really like matte polishes and holos right now even thought I only order 1 matte finish polish, 1 matte finish top coat and have 2 holos currently on order that I haven’t tried yet.
- Least favourite? Stiletto nails…
- Zombies or unicorns? Uhm… unicorns. I’m too much of a girly-girl to like zombies.
- What’s your favourite nail polish brand? I’m not overly “versed” in different nail polish brands, but honestly, out of my selection I have I think I prefer Essie (I only have 1 colour, 2 topcoats and a Luxe Effect topcoat).
- What’s the most you’ve ever paid for a nail polish? I try to find the best deals, and I can’t bring myself to spend a lot on polish — I have yet to receive it, but the most expensive I have paid for is Girly Bits’ Roger That $12.50, but $5.00 of that goes to a great cause 😀
- What’s the nail design you’re most proud of? I’m going to have to say my tie-dye nails, even though it was so easy 🙂
- What nail design did you try that totally flopped? The first time I tried half-moons, I thought it was a complete fail because I painted the half-moons by hand rather than using tape/nail guides. And it didn’t turn out the way I envisioned.
- What do you like to do other than blogging and nail polish? I spend my free time reading, sleeping, and spending as much time as I can with Tyler and Owen 😀
Now to come up with some questions…
- What is your most memorable nail polish colour?
- What is our least favourite colour in your nail polish collection?
- What is your favourite nail effect?
- What is your favourite time of day to paint your nails?
- Is there anything that you would give up in order to buy that new “must have” polish?
- What would you be doing if you didn’t have a nail painting addiction?
- What gave you that “push” to start your nail blog?
- What is your favourite thing to do outside of painting your nails?
- What nail art design are you most proud of?
- What nail art design was your very first leap into the nail art world?
- How many polishes do you currently own (approx if you don’t have an exact number)?
