GLITTERFISTS nominated me for the Liebster Award! I'm so excited! This seriously made my Monday it really means a lot when others admire your work and want to learn more about you! I was given 11 questions and i'm here to answer them now!
1. What, or who, got you into blogging? Was it a gradual process or did you just decide one day to start blogging?I started sharing photos of my manicures on my facebook page back in 2009/2010. My friends and family really loved my photos! They all told me I should start a blog showcasing my work but I always felt a bit of resistance. Back in February I logged on to blogger and started toying with the idea then sorta just forgot about it. This summer a lot changed and I decided that I wanted to blog so my little ole' blog was born.
2. How do you store your polish? Bins, drawers, boxes?I have two Melmers stacked on top of each other that I put together all by myself and love dearly.
Hmmmmm, although purple is my favorite color I probably own more blue polishes!
3. What color of polish do you own most of?
4. Have you ever thought of making your own polish brand?I have actually and still possibly considering my own brand of polish. Some of my favorite and most admired polishes come from the hands of everyday ladies with a passion for nails like me and I may join their ranks some day.
5. If you work, what do you do for your job? Do you enjoy it? If no, what would you like to do? If you're a student, what are you going to school for?I work in the legal field for a great firm. I'm also fortunate enough to work at a firm that is very laid back (jeans everyday and neon leopard print nails if I want to!) I enjoy law and the uniqueness of it, I never get bored! I will be returning to school soon though.
6. Do you have any pets? If so, what kinds and what are their names?I have a little black lab named Carly. She was a gift for my daughter on Christmas Eve almost two years ago and is seriously like a second child to our family.
7. What is your favorite TV show? What about movie?I can't just pick one! My current favorites are Scandal, Nashville, Greys Anatomy, Orange Is The New Black, and The Following. My favorite movie ever is Beauty and The Beast.
8. What is your favorite thing about blogging? Least favorite?Sharing with others! There is so much that I have learned because others have been generous enough to share their time and photos with others. There are things that I would never have known if it weren't for bloggers.
My least favorite thing is getting behind!It really does take time and dedication to swatch polishes, get the perfect lighting, the perfect photo, upload, edit, posting, formatting, etc. But the end product is always worth it.
9. If you could collaborate with any brand, indie or mainstream, who would it be?KBShimmer! I absolutely love KBShimmer they have some of the most beautiful and unique polishes! I recently purchased three and will be purchasing the fall collection and many more!
10. Chocolate or vanilla?Both! A hot fudgy brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top? Yeah buddy!
11. Do you watch any YouTube Nail Gurus? If you do, who are they?Just a few, cutepolish, madamluck, dandynails, freakynailsvids, Theesammersaurus, Julie Ventura, rainkeroro, and mayparis
