Liebster Award!

I was so flattered to have nominated for two Liebster Awards in a single week!
Let me say thank you to Emily of - if you have not checked out her blog, give it a look! She recently did a great job covering some indie polishes...
I was also nominated by Kristi of - her awesome blog covers nail polish and more. She seems like a lovely lady!
So, here are the rules:
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.

The questions from Emily
1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
I had a little extra free time when I went back to school, and wanted to share my love of polish with more than my immediate circle of friends.

I think purple or blue. I have trouke saying no to a good purple.

Depends on the weather and where I am- if I can see the ocean, sea food, if it's winter, pho, if it's summer, sushi, and I always love GOOD Italian, which is hard to find.
9. What trends do you love?
I do like the geek chick, because I've always been a geek, so no it's just more socially acceptable ;)

I was painting my nails with a navy Wet'n'Wild polish, my dad came in my room and complained it smelled like paint thinner in my room. Haha!
