Liebster award January 2013

Anna from Anna's polish addiction nominated me for a Liebster award. So the rules are: I have to say 11 random things about myself, answer her 11 questions {below} and then nominate 11 other people (with less than 200 followers) and ask them 11 questions. A big thank you to Anna for nominating me, click here to check out her blog! And a MASSIVE apology for being so slow to posting this! It was hiding in my draft folder for weeks and weeks and weeks :s

1. How many polishes do you own?

I own around 85 bottles of nail polish plus a few extra that I have brought on sale and put aside for gifts. 

2. What's your fave nail art technique?

I love stamping and I have recently started doing 'dotticures' so they are a close second since I haven't quite perfected them yet!

3. What's your favourite brand of polish?

Sinful Colors 

4. How often do you paint your nails?

At the moment I am doing them everyday because of the 31 day challenge but I prefer to wear a nail polish for a minimum of two days before removing it (or adding another polish on top, great for hiding tip wear). 

5. Do you use a base coat?

Yes always! I have just stated using Sally Hansen's 'Diamond strength hardener'  as a base coat and jeez, it really does harden your nails! I am really happy with it, works great as a base coat. Sally Hansen also have a combined base and top coat that I have used. 

6. What's the most you'd spend on a polish?

I am ashamed to say I have spent AUD$20 two times on polish (Butter London's Fishwife and Siw by Make-Up Store) but normally I would limit myself to $6-$10 per bottle but usually only spend less than $5 on polish. There are lots of great brands that sell polish for under $5, for example Sinful Colors, Ulta3, Essence....etc

7. What's the best fancy dress outfit you've ever worn?

I have only worn one fancy dress outfit so I guess that's it! I wore my black formal dress which had a high-low hem with big chunky boots and a black wig (I was a goth if you didn't realise). 

8. What's your favourite film?

The movies I love watching are the Fast and the furious movies, Titanic and Just Like Heaven. I'm sure I have forgotten heaps of good ones......

9. Do you have any hobbies?

Reading, watching TV, blogging ('doh) and shopping. 

10. Do you have any tattoos?


11. Describe yourself with 3 words

Unique, Conscientiousness and random.

Eleven random things about me

  • Nickelback is my favourite brand.
  • Water is my favourite drink. 
  • I find cooking therapeutic (and doing the dishes too!).
  • I hate it when you are reading a book and the author had to go and ruin your favourite character's life because they can't live 'happily ever after'. 
  • Every time I see Supernatural's parody of CSI:MIAMI I am a blubbering mess because it is just so funny!
  • Before going all crazy with nail polish I was a crazy stationary collector. I literally have hundreds of pens.

  • Whenever I am highlighting my notes I end up highlighting everything, lol!
