Award No. 2 ~ The Liebster Award

I received my second award this week! The lovely Caroline over at Caroline's Nails tagged me, so thank you very much Caroline! Caroline blogs nails and other beauty things, so go ahead and follow her, her blog is great!

This award has rules, just like all the others, so here they are:

  1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
  3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
  4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
  5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
  6. There's no tag backs.                                       


The Leibster Award is awarded to blogs with under 200 followers to help them gain followers and exposure to other blogs. Sounds like a great idea to me!

11 Things About Me

  1. I am starting university in 3 weeks to study Psychology and Biology.
  2. I am a big fan of baking.
  3. I like to read a lot.
  4. I spend a ridiculous amount of my life watching boxsets of TV shows.
  5. I am a massive Audrey Hepburn fan.
  6. My favourite colour is winey purple/red.
  7. My favourite animals are foxes and whales.
  8. I really want to visit Alaska (to see Chris McCandless' bus) and Iceland (to see the Aurora Borealis).
  9.  I love gangster movies and war movies.
  10. I have a list of places to visit before I die, it takes up two pages!
  11. And finally, I love Christmas time, best time of the year!

11 Questions from Caroline

  1. Why did you start your blog? I really love nail art and I had been reading a variety of nail blogs for about a year when I decided I wanted to have one too.
  2. Do you ever feel like you won't get more followers? Do you ever loose hope and think that blogging was a bad idea? Why? I didn't really make my blog with the aim of getting followers. It's more a blog for me to put my pictures somewhere and I can look back on them, having followers and people interested in my nails is just a bonus!
  3. What keeps you motivated to keep blogging? It kinda justifies the crazy amounts of nail polish I buy!
  4. What is your favorite brand of polish? Ooooh, I would saaaaay... Models Own.
  5. What is your favorite nail art trend? Probably gradients or stamping (does that count as a trend?)
  6. How do you wear your nails most of the time? Long, short, medium? Plain color? Crazy art? Stamping? I want to know! Normally medium length with an accent nail or stamping.
  7. What is your favorite manicure that you've ever done? Post a picture or link! My favourite would probably be my peacock nails. (Picture at the bottom of these questions)
  8. With nails, beauty, and blogging out of the way, what are your other hobbies or pastimes? I read and bake a lot. I also watch a lot of TV and I'm really into music.
  9. What is your favorite song? Ride by Cary Brothers, its been my favourite song since I was 16.
  10. Who is your favorite band/artist? This is hard!! Uhm... At the moment Ben Howard but I go through phases.
  11. What are your top 5 favorite blogs? Polished Pinay,
    Clothes, Cosmetics and Chat, Man Polish, Varnished Valkyrie and The PolishAholic
My 11 questions for the people I've tagged

  1. How long have you been blogging?
  2. What motivated you to start your blog?
  3. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
  4. Does your nail art get noticed by strangers in real life? Do you like this?
  5. How many nail polishes do you own?
  6. What is your favourite nail colour for the 4 different seasons? (One per season)
  7. Have you ever considered taking your hobby further? (i.e. nail/make up courses, working in a nail salon)
  8. Do you research swatches/reviews before you buy a polish or are you an impulse buyer?
  9.  Are their polishes you can't get in your country that you really want?
