AMG Another Award!

Before I start this, I just thought I'd show you all yesterday's mani with a matte coat. You all know I can never leave well enough alone, you really should have expected this :P Ignore my dry cuticles from swimming (yes, I totally splashed around all like "amg you guys I'm a mermaid look at mah nails!") and also the piece of cat fur. I shoo'd him off the window sill but the little furball wormed his way in there anyhow. Crafty felines *shakes fist*

Now on to the exciting news! Super sweet Hema at Rainbow Nails has tagged me for more awards! **super secret squirrel jump cut**

 I started this blog mainly as a way to force myself to take better care of my hands, so it really means a lot to me that people take the time to not just read but also leave such supportive and nice comments. You all are amazing and I can't thank you enough for being so sweet! Thank you again to Hema for tagging me for all three of these, on to the show!

The rules for this award are -
1- Thank the person who gave you the award; with their blog link in your post.
2- Answer the following 4 questions.
3- Give the blogger appreciation award to other bloggers.
4- Let the bloggers know you awarded them.

The Questions are -
1. How long have you been blogging?
I started this blog on March 30th, 2012 (Ha, two days after Hema)

2. What are the 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
To force myself to take better care of my hands/nails. I am drawn to all things creative so when I first saw nail art other than a plain coat of polish I was all over it.

3. What types of blogs do you like to follow/read?
Nail art blogs for sure but I am also kind of addicted to blogs about jewelry making.

4. What is one thing you would like to improve as a blogger/ on your blog?
My photography, big time. I have so many amazing photographer friends who would probably look at my photos and pretend they didn't know me :P

1- Post the link to who gave you the award.
2- Answer the questions.
3- Share 7 random things about yourself.  (I'm lazy, and I did it with the last one :P)
4- Pass it on to 10 bloggers and inform them.

The Questions are -

1. Favourite song?
Probably Twilight Tavern by Ensiferum. I freaking love viking rock, don't judge me.

2. Favourite Dessert?
Cheesecake! Anything cheesecake! Ugh, I said cheesecake and now I want some.

3. What drives me insane?
When my husband gets too close to other cars at stop lights. You're supposed to come to a full stop at least one full car length away and THEN gently roll up, stop giving me panic attacks!

4. When im mad?
I throw giant stuffed angry birds. For reals, for Christmas my husband got me a huuuuge stuffed angry bird that makes the noise for me to throw around because he was sick of me throwing the couch pillows/remote control. So far it has been the most useful present ever.

5. Favourite pet?
Man, I can't choose! I love all critters. We have two dogs and the cat monster but I also used to have pet rats that I completely adored.

6. Black or White?
Both with a nice gradient.

7. Biggest Fear?
Disappointing people, I have issues.
8. My daily attitude?
Oops, I hope that won't stain.

9. Whats perfect?
A number that is half the sum of all of its positive divisors (including itself).  /nerd

10. Guilty pleasure?
I have to pick just one?

Now onto the nominations, chosen to be awarded FOR ALL THREE (Appreciation, Kreativ and Liebster). 

1) Kat from Hooked On Polish : We share a lot of the same tastes, nail and otherwise, so I gotta give a shout out to mah homegirl. She is always trying something new so go look at the awesomeness. Do it. Now.

2) Linda from Copy That, Copy Cat : Nail art that flat out blows me away is usually hanging out on this blog. Chains, people. Metal on nails, I LOVE IT. Go see for yourself and get lost in the pretty!

I am now going to be a total loser and use two people Hema did because I really wanted to even before I saw she used them too. Less work for you guys haha.

3) Lydz from Sekhmet's Purple Castle : One of my first followers and always so sweet and supportive! This girl is a stamping queen and always picks some of my favorite color combos, so if you like stamping go check her blog out! You will not be disappointed!

4) Sue from Creative Nail Design by Sue : Creative is an understatement. Sue is always doing super fun things that make me smile (not to mention are great inspiration)! If you're looking for something fun and different this is the place to read!
