Liebster Award :)

16 Sep

I got a very excited email while I was out today- Me and JD’s Nail Art nominated me for a Liebster Award! 😀

I’ll admit, I had no idea what this award was until I looked it up. Apparently Liebster means “most favorite” or “dearest” in German. The award is “given” to new bloggers that have less than 200 followers.

Here are the rules:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

2. They must answer the 11 questions giving the award has set for them.

3. Create 11 questions for the people you will be giving the award to.

4. Choose 11 people to award and send them a link to your post.

5.  Go to their page and tell them.

6. No tag backs

Okay so let’s start this thing! 11 facts about me:

1. I live in Indiana, but my 2 favorite places are Ocean City, Maryland and Rome, Italy.

2. My first name is Cecelia, and yes, I am named after the Simon and Garfunkel song

3. I’m a huge nerd. I play a ton of video games (borderlands 2 comes out on Monday! :D) and have more hours invested in Left4Dead2 than I’d like to admit, but thank you Steam, for counting.

4. I like Apple products, a lot. In my lifetime, I’ve owned or still currently own 3 ipods, an ipad, an iphone, and a MacBook Air.

5. I’m a total gym junkie. I go to the gym every single day and if I’m forced to skip a day for some reason, I get a little upset.

6. As of today, I own 210 nail polishes, including base and top coats.

7. I’m slightly addicted to Pintrest. I don’t understand people who don’t like Pintrest to be honest 🙂 I even got my mom hooked on Pintrest.

8. I didn’t get involved in nail art or even nail polish really until probably February of this year. I’m pretty sure at least some of my love of nail polish was fueled by Pintrest though 🙂

9. I have the worst handwriting like… ever. Have you ever heard how girls have “girl handwriting” and boys have “boy handwriting” because usually girls have cute, neat handwriting and boys just don’t care? Yeah well I have been told many times that I have boy handwriting…

10. My favorite color is purple!

11. I read a lot. There’s nothing better than laying down after a long day and curling up with a good book.

11 Questions From Me and JD’s Nail Art:

1. Money no issue, what’s one thing you’d like to do?  I hope to do this someday either way but I really would love to live in Italy. I love cities and Rome has so much history and the people are so nice. Outside of Rome, the country side is beautiful. It’s the perfect place to be.

2. Most embarrassing story?  Haha, what a fun question… Well, I won’t go too much into detail but basically, I was in Kindergarden and we were “graduating” and we had to learn some song and perform it on stage. So, like 5 minutes before we were going on stage, I asked the teacher if I could use the bathroom and she said no. So long story short, I peed myself on stage in front of about 100 people…

3. Best Memory? Well, it’s hard to narrow it down to just one, but I spent a week in Ocean City, Maryland this summer and it’s the perfect vacation spot. You wake up and lay on the beach all morning and then walk the boardwalk all day and night. It was a pretty amazing week, it’s always so hard to leave.

4. If you were a superhero, what would your super power be? Is it good or evil? Hmm… I think it would be awesome to be able to manipulate time. You could stop time or go back in time. I guess it could be used for good or evil, I’d probably use it for both.

5. Favorite Holiday/Season? My favorite holiday is Halloween for sure. It’s so much fun dressing up in costumes and getting candy! Plus, Fall is when some of my favorite polishes are released 🙂

6. Do you have any addictions? Oh man, of course I do! Just to name a few: The fallout games, MIO, nail polish, Tobuscus videos, Candles, Hot Pockets, Pretty Little Liars, Tumblr, and Sarah Dessen books. I’m sure there’s much more, but I will not list them all.

7. If you had to live with only 1 piece of makeup for the rest of your life (in as many colors as you like) what would it be and why? Probably OPI nail polish. They have super cute colors and the brush is the perfect size. Plus they’ve been around for a long time so they have more colors available 🙂

8. What’s your poison? I actually don’t drink alcohol so.. Oh! But non-alcoholic Pina Coladas are awesome 🙂

9. Top 5 celebs you’d like too ‘meet up with’? John Mayer, Hayley Williams, Johnny Depp, Jason Segel, and Mila Kunis.

10. Favorite thing to relax to? It depends on my mood. Usually I play video games or read something. Or just listen to music and surf the web.

11. What made you decide blogging was for you and why this topic? I really love nail polish and nail art, it’s something I want to do as a career. And I wanted to share that with a lot of people, not just my friends or family.

1.If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you’d buy?

The Man with the Golden Gun

2 Aug

If you’re a total nail junkie like I am and you have a facebook, I recommend that you log on right now and go like the OPI page, if you haven’t already. I’ve been checking out their posts for a while now and a few days ago, OPI posted this picture:

Yep, that’s right. OPI has announced that with their James Bond collection, which is set to come out in October, they’re releasing a beautiful gold top coat. Real 18 karat gold top coat. Also, as you can see, it comes in a limited edition collectible golden bottle. Wouldn’t that be a beautiful addition to anyone’s polish collection?

Needless to say, I’m very excited for this top coat. It will retail for $30, and I just may be the first in line to buy it. What do you guys think? 🙂

Olympic Nail Art

1 Aug

Since the Olypmics started a few days ago in London, I’ve been watching it just about every night! I’ve been noticing that a few of the female athletes have some very patriotic nail art! It’s nice to see that I’m not the only one that doesn’t let her nails be bare.

See all of the athlete’s great manis here:
