Happy Thursday everyone!
I have been nominated for the Blog Your Heart Out Award by Katherine from the blog ProcrastiNails! Thank you so much Katherine!
I guess the way the award works is that you are given 5 questions to answer and then you are to nominate 5 other blogs you like that have under 100 followers. This award is designed to showcase amazing blogs that people might not know about yet, and help them gain more followers.
Here are the questions:
What/who encouraged you to start blogging?
What has encouraged me to start blogging in the first place is my love for everything nail polish! I really only started getting into nails about four months ago, and that was when I started trying to do nail designs. That last month of school this past year, I had many people start coming up to me to compliment my nails from my friends, to teachers, to random people at the store. Then, on Pinterest and Tumblr, I discovered that there were so many other people out there who liked nail polish as much as me, and I began reading/following many nail blogs (that I never knew existed before). I wanted to be part of that nail-blogging community, so that is why I started my blog! :)
How did you chose what topic(s) to blog about?
Well, I have always been taught to think outside the box and to always let your creativity run wild. At first though, I would search for nail designs for inspiration, but now I try to think up my own, original ideas. I do this by looking at everyday things and thinking that they'd make cool nail designs, or even looking at the clothes in my closet or window shopping at the mall and making them into nail designs as well.
3. What is something that most
people don't know about you?
I was a competitive swimmer for eight years, and swam on the National Team at my club swim team for 3 of those years. While on the National Team, I had the joy of going to double swim practices (which add up to 5 hours of training a day), plus additional weight-lifting and dryland. Swimming used to be my life until I had to quit because I just couldn't fit it in my schedule because it was an hour away, and I just didn't have the time to commit to it any more because high school is hard enough with classes and other activities without all the extra swimming pressure. The plus side though, is now I can paint my nails! When I was swimming, no matter if I got my nails done at a salon or did them myself, they ALWAYS chipped. So at least I can now enjoy my nails a little longer! :)
4. What three words
describe your style?
Creative, simple, and unique.
4. What do you like to do when you are not blogging?
I like hanging out with my friends, teaching swim lessons in the summer, reading, shopping, and cheering on my favorite sports teams: the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bears, the Chicago Blackhawks, and the Chicago Bulls (I guess you can say I'm a Chicago fan, lol).
So, thanks again to Katherine who nominated me! Here are my five nominees:
