Liebstered IN THE FACE
It's weird how these things always seem to come along like buses though isn't it-two nominations within five days of each other! This time it was the lovely Erika from The Polished Fangirl and Dil from I 'Art Nails (loving that name, by the way!) so I'm going to answer all their questions here.
1. If you were told you could only keep 10 polishes for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Gulp, that's a hard one! I'd probably have to choose some of my Barry M gellies because they give great coverage in one-two coats and they're really bright shiny colours that you can use for stamping and lots of other nail art effects quite well. Plus a silver holo because holos.
2. What is your favourite style of nail art?
On me I love silly things like my Monsters Uni nail art or my Doc Martens ones. Actual art on my nails! I love gradients though, and tape manis too-I've seen some fabulous ones on other people.
3. What hobbies do you have besides nail art?
I'm learning to play bass guitar, I'm also learning to swing dance and I LOVE to go on stage whenever I can. Also theatre, I want to see ALL the theatre.
4. What was your favourite vacation ever?
Ooh, that's a tricky one! I'd have to say either Rome last year (because it was amazing) or Slovenia the year before that because I laughed constantly for 4 days. Awesome people and awesome memories from both =)
5. Are you in a relationship? If so, what is he/she like?
I am in a relationship, albeit one that's only 3 months old! He's Australian, tall and skinny with blueish hair and he (like me) loves science and theatre. He makes me laugh a lot and he's just as soppy as I am which is kinda awesome really. (Don't tell him I said that though, haha)
6. What's your ideal comfort food?
I don't know really, while I may be a big girl I don't think I comfort eat-I tend to go off my food when bad things happen. Probably chocolate though, if I had to name one.
7. Do you have any equally (or even more) obsessed polish loving friends or are you alone in your dedication?
My best mate Rara (who regularly posts on this blog) is just as bad as I am and she's a terrible influence on me! She's definitely better than I am though, sigh!
8. What was the first polish you ever bought?
Honestly, I can't remember. Probably by free choice a Stargazer in bright green or bright orange I would guess.
9. Are you into make-up as well as polish? What are your favourite make-up products?
I'm really not into make-up at all, most days I don't even wear any! My most used product is my mascara-a Collection 2000 one. I've got quite long eyelashes so I just buy the cheapest one around for a bit of colour.
10. What's your favourite colour family?
Long time readers of this blog will know the answer to this-blues and greens!
11. If someone paid you a million dollars not to paint your nails for a week would you do it?
Are you mad? Of course I would! I may be an addict but I can cope for a week for that much dough! Hell I'd do it for a lot less to be honest, it's not a hardship to me!
1. If you had three wishes what would they be?
Probably exactly the same as I said last time-a job and a home in Sheffield and the ability to drive without having to learn! I'm willing to work for the rest, haha.
2. What beauty item(s) do you carry around in your bag?
A pot of Vaseline (or a stick of Nivea in the summer months) and that's it.
3. What song would be the soundtrack to your life?
Erm...just one??? I don't think I could pick one that would have been the soundtrack to my entire life, because I connect with song lyrics on an emotional level so songs that mean something are constantly changing. I can't choose!
4. If you could be any character in any book or film, who would you be?
Ooh, so many possibilities! OK...soo...I'd probably pick Agnes Nitt in Terry Pratchett's Discworld books (please tell me someone out there reading this knows who I mean?!) because I played her on stage once and she was fabulous. She was a stompy goth witch with a fabulous voice who wasn't afraid to speak her mind and had incredible hair. She was AMAZING. This picture is all Agnes and I LOVE it:
5. What is your favourite perfume/fragrance?
I don't really have a "signature scent" really. I've recently got back into a Body Shop perfume called Indian Night Jasmine, which is really lovely and lasts all day.
6. What has been your biggest beauty/fashion faux pas?
Probably when I was starting to try out make-up when I was 13 or so, I slathered it all over my face in a way that must have looked completely awful!
7. Natural or Acrylic nails?
Personally I prefer natural ones every time. I couldn't be dealing with acrylics and some of the ones I've seen on people are so long they're like scary talons!
8. If you could have a lifetime supply of make-up, what brand would you choose?
If this is including nail varnish probably Barry M! I don't own any of their make-up though...so I'd go with Clinique for that because it works well with my skin and is really nice quality.
9. If you could have a date with any celebrity, who would it be?
It depends what mood I was in really! If I wanted someone pretty to ogle then it'd be Chris Hemsworth (who plays Thor-Phwoar!) but if I wanted a really good intellectual/funny conversation I'd pick someone like Neil Gaiman or Sarah Millican, because I imagine we'd have a good old time and laugh far too loudly in public, haha.
10. If you could invite 5 people to a dinner party (dead or alive), who would it be?
Ahh, I hate these questions, I always feel pressured to answer them in a witty and funny way or something. Although as this question doesn't specify they have to be famous then I am going to say my boyfriend and my best friends because I know it'd be an evening I would enjoy without question, and we'd have lots to talk about and much laughter. Totally evaded the real question there =p
11. Why did you start blogging?
Originally I started blogging because I wanted a little corner of the internet where I could express myself-state my opinions and write about my life. I started nail blogging because I wanted somewhere to share my nail art and where I could meet people who were also interested in it and have some (virtual) nail art friends. I'm really glad I have both of my blogs though, I've "met" some really fabulous people through blogging and really love it!
OK, that's all for now, thanks again to the two ladies who nominated me!
