Liebster Award - Again! :D

Hi everyone! I was nominated for the Liebster Award again! This time by Lauren from tales about nails! She has very high quality and consistent photos. I love her macros! She mixes things up by posting both swatches and nail art. Check her out!

11 Questions for the people I tag:

1.What nail polish can you not live without?
Hmm, there isn't one actually. I can live without any of my polishes. Don't get me wrong. I do like my polishes, but I just don't think nail polish is something you should kill yourself over. 

2. How did your love for nail polish start?
It first started when I was little, but then I went through a "tomboy" phase in middle school. It started again in my last two years of high school. I came across a picture of a mani of Essie Mint Candy Apple. Really, who can resist such a pretty color? (Although I don't even have it in my collection...) 

3. To glitter or not to glitter?
To glitter, that is my answer! I do it whenever I'm down or want something fun on my nails. Glitters are great picker-upers. :)

4. One food you could spend the rest of your life eating.
Wow, this is hard. There's SO MUCH good food out there... I don't know. On the spur of the moment, I guess sticky rice and Chinese sausage? I love to see it on the table when I come home from college during the holidays. Though lamb gyros, In-n-Out cheeseburger and fries, takoyaki, green tea ice cream, chili cheese fries, smoky ribs, bacon, s'mores, good mac and cheese, and zucchini fries are great too... Actually, this list can go on forever. I'll just stop now before I make myself hungry.

5. What do your family/friends think about your nail polish obsessions?
"You have too much/more than enough nail polish." "Stop buying nail polish." Am I going to listen to my parents? Probably not... Though I should stop for a while. (Which I've been good at doing so far.)

6. If you could have the wardrobe of one celebrity, who would it be?
I guess I'd like Taylor Swift's. I really like vintage, classy, chic. From what I've seen, her closet fits the bill.

7. One song you are so over and never want to hear ever again.
Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and Adele "Rolling in the Deep". You guys have great voices and the songs are nice, but I'm tired of hearing those songs of yours EVERYWHERE. (Well, "Rolling in the Deep" back in high school. We had a senior talent show and I swear people sang that song back-to-back! And then my friends and I went to the mall afterwards and the radio played it! Argh!)

8. What do you love about the nail blogging community?
I LOVE how everyone is so nice, supportive, and tight-knit with each other! :D Makes me think the world is nicer than it actually is.

9. What are your pet peeves?
Since I'm picky and a perfectionist, I have a lot. But the thing I truly cannot stand, and will glare at you until you stop and run away for, is inconsiderate jerks being loud or obnoxious in any way when I'm in the library or dorm basement to study! If you're going to play your music loudly and drawing on the table surfaces loudly (and can't hear me when I politely tell you to lower the volume) or talk about your private parts or tell your friends about that one time you were drunk (and underage) and made out with a girl who you thought was ugly, then don't bother being in the study areas! Jerks! (Yes, all are true stories. And to think they will be future pharmacists and dentists...) Sorry for the rant...

10. Signature dance move?
Um, does the antisocial-girl-over-there-in-the-corner (or most-likely-in-her-dorm-room) count? XD

11. What is your favourite nail polish brands and why?
For drugstore, Sally Hansen. For salon/higher end, OPI. I'm always impressed with their quality and range of colors. (I mean, did you SEE OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest from OPI's upcoming Germany collection?!)

Well, that's it! I did everything already in my other post.

See you guys on the other side of the day!



  1. Haha great answers!! And you're right about the new OPI colour... seriously *drool*

  2. The OPI Germany collection is incredible! I want the whole set. I don't wear OPI because the parent company Coty isn't cruelty free.... I am so sad about it. I'm going to cave in.

  3. I agree I also I can live without any of my polishes. I would be sad but still would live :)
