Liebster Award

This has been such a great week in my nail polish world. My little blog has been nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award and now Miska at Lacquer or Leave Her has nominated me for the Liebster Award.

Mishka expressed her self perfectly and echoed my feelings of what a fabulous experience my entry into the 'nail world' has been, so of course I'm going to get all sappy over her blog post and copy her on this one :-).
 All of the ladies and gents on the Purple Fairy Crumpet Challenge, where I first started doing nail art,  have been so kind and supportive. I've become involved in the Adventures in Stamping, and now Polish-o-rama groups on Facebook since then and continue to find the same lovely people, along with new polish friends, to share our fascination of polish and nail art.
It doesn't matter what level you are or how long you've been doing it, you're welcomed with open polished nails for positive camaraderie, help with just about every polish/nail art question or problem you might have, and encouragement.

Ok, Ok, I'm done! On with questions answered and given to the other bloggers.

The rules are as following: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.

These were the questions that were posed to the nominees.

Here are the questions I have for the bloggers I've selected (many stolen from Dina and Becky!):
1) What is your favorite polish? Right now, China Glaze.

2) What is your favorite movie or book, and why?
Lately it's been Harry Potter. It sounds a bit juvenile, but I really like how his character changes, how he's always faced with tough choices and realizes that it would be much easier to just give in - yet he continues to struggle in what he believes is the right thing.

3) What is your guilty pleasure?
Chocolate or a While Chocolate Blackberry mocha with an extra shot of espresso.

4) What is your favorite manicure, and why? Link please. :)
 So far its the July 3rd Euro Football for Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge - I was really pleased with my free hand.

5) Pick one word to describe yourself. Loyal (to a fault)

6) List 5 things within arm's reach of where you sit.
My phone, my water, my orchid, my nail polish, paper towels,

7) Who is your favorite artist, and why? (not nail artist, but painter, sculptor, etc.)
Renoir - I love his paintings. He took such every day scenes and make them so expressive, and bold. I love the people in his paintings, especially the women, how robust and regular looking they are - yet me makes them so enchanting and sexy.

8) What should you be doing now, instead of blogging? Dishes, UGH!

9) Indoor or outdoor person? Winter, outdoor, summer indoor where it's cool.

10) Name one thing you have or would have on your bucket list.
 Go back to Australia to visit my family

11) List 3 things that make you happy, other than nail polish.
Cake decorating, reading, running/cycling.
