Liebster Blog Award!

Hey girls.

I was nominated by Stefanie from Fairly Charming.  Thanks again for nominating me sweetheart! She nominated me April 30th and I'm just now getting this post up lol. Anyhow this is an award to show appreciation and love to blogs with under 200 followers. I did a little research and  found out "Liebster" is beloved in German. So without further ado on to the rules.

The Rules

  1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you (Fairly Charming)
  2. Write 11 facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the 11 question from the blogger who nominated you.
  4. Nominate blogger with less than 200 followers
  5. Create an additional 11 questions for the nominee's to answer.
11 Facts About Me
  1. I have several nicknames. My momma calls me donut which I don’t like very much because when I was little I was VERY dark .She has recently started calling me cokey which is another weird one lol. My daddy calls me chocolate drop or co ca mo or baby-girl. My sisters call me coco. My favorite cousin Brittany calls me Tah.
  2. I love Jamaican music.
  3. My favorite color is bright pink.
  4. I’m studying to become an Art teacher. I’m currently stuck on math. Math is so difficult for me it’s not even funny.
  5. I’m very short 4’11 and a half but I use 5 feet for my height because it makes me feel taller.
  6. When I was about 13 I used all my momma’s nail polish remover up and she made me walk to the store all by myself to get her a new bottle. So I’ve been into polish for a long, long time.
  7. I’m a daddy’s girl and grandma’s baby!
  8. I have an almost phobia of pit bulls. They creep me the EFF out. When I see one that's not on a chain , I freak out. I go into a trance and start breathing heavily and crying. Sigh.
  9. My favorite season is summer.
  10. Besides polish I’m very into ancestry. I find it so fascinating. I've taken a DNA ancestry test from I am 77.7% African, 20.8% European,0.4% Asian, and 1.5% unassigned. I do know that I am Irish, German, West, and East African.
  11. I wear a size 10 in shoes. People tell me all the time that my feet shouldn't be so big because I’m so short. As if.
11 Questions From Fairly Charming

1.How many polishes do you have in your stash?
Approximately 510 polish babies.

2.What are your current lemmings/polishes you are dying to have?
I really want Lights of Emerald City by OPI. Cherry Pie, Strawberry Fields, and White cap are some of my top China Glaze polishes I want.

3.What is your fave type of polish to wear (e.g. glitter, creme, holo, jelly, glass flecked, etc.)?
I love a good glass fleck. I've fallen in love with Running In Circles by China Glaze.

4.What is your favorite nail art technique to do?
I love doing gradients.

5.How long have you been painting nails/into nail polish?
My obsession with nail polish really took off in middle school. I would always paint my toes different colors each week. I never really paid that much attention to my nails. I was annoyed that I couldn't paint my right hand without it being messy so I’d just leave them with out polish. Then in 2011 I cut all my relaxed hair off and was left with this little afro. I absolutely hated my hair that short. So I got into painting my nails again and learning how to paint my right hand. It boosted my self-esteem and made me feel better about my hair.

6.What are some of your favorite blogs to follow?

7.Which Summer polishes are you most looking forward to purchasing?
I want the entire China Glaze Sunsational summer neon collection. I adore neons. Orly always comes out with good summer colors so i'll be picking a few of those up.

8.What is a popular fashion trend that you with would disappear into oblivion?
Cut out leggings and sheer dresses. They look so trashy in my opinion.

9.What's your favorite TV show?
Gosh this is a hard one. If I had to pick I’d say Sex & The City. I started watching after they series went off. I fell in love.

10.What's your favorite movie?
Pretty woman . I love,love,love this movie. I can watch it over and over.

11.Do you hate me for nominating you because you'll now have to go thru this time-consuming process yourself??  :P
Nope. I’m glad you did. I find it very sweet that little ol me was chosen :) I’m glad I was able to get my post up in a timely manner because I can procrastinate like no other.
