Awards and caramel corn

Busy busy busy. That pretty much summed up my whole week. So busy I've been wearing my nails au naturale for the whole week (eek!). Soooo, I've decided that I'm gonna try my best to catch up with backdated posts and make sure I do an update every few days even if it's just sharing a random picture I find online

That said, the lovely I Bleed Polish has given me two awards (thanks love! and sorry I took so long). I feel so honoured because I'm such a newbie at blogging and such surprises give me additional motivation to keep on blogging, don't stop blogging... I'm so random haha. That's Y&T if anyone didn't know that already.

Anyway, the first is:

The rules are: 
1. Link back to the person you got it from 
2. Tell seven things about yourself
3. Give the award to ten bloggers

7 Things about myself (non-polish related):
- My favourite colors are aqua, blue and black. 
- I'm skinny as a rake. Been trying to put on some weight for close to eight years which might not sound like a problem to you guys but I'm too skinny for my own good. I've had random strangers give me money and tell me to buy food. It's beyond embarrassing. :/
- I'd rather bake than cook. There is no such thing as too much desserts :) 
- I have a thing about dirt, which makes working in the lab great because I'm in gloves half the time. 
- My fingers and wrists are too small to wear most production-sized rings and bracelets so I have resorted to making my own. Will post pictures of some for you guys to have a look soon 
- I love korean food (I'm not korean). I could eat kimchi and korean bbq meat everyday mmmm.. 
- I have a weakness for shoes, especially the weirder looking ones.

And I tag:

The second is:

The rules are: 
1. Link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Answer the following questions
3. Award to other bloggers and let them know

The questions: 
1. What's your favourite song? 
I have too many favourites to pick just one. An all-time favourite would have to be I'll Be by Edwin McCain. But at the moment, I have Untitled by Mumford and Sons on replay. Love Mumford and Sons, please please please come to Melbourne!! 

2. What's your favourite dessert? 
Froyo, gelato, anything coffee flavoured! 

3. What's your favourite pet? 
Don't have one but I would want a corgi, siberian husky or a hedgehog.

4. Black or White?
Black most definitely. 

5. What's your biggest fear? 
A Zombie apocalypse. I kid, I hate needles and heights and if I were to have a biggest fear it would be the people I love leaving me. 

6. What's your best feature?
My.. hair? 

7. What's your everyday attitude? 
'When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.' A cliche quote I know, but I try to get one step closer to fulfilling my dreams each day. And if you haven't already seen this
 video, watch it. It's good stuff.   

8. What is perfection?
Travelling the world with someone I love and not having to care about time or money.

9. What is your guilty pleasure?

And I tag everyone in the previous award! Btw, who likes salted caramel corn? Cos I do! Made some over the weekend. Try some if you haven't already, it's mega yums!

Love you all!

NOTD: Static Funk

LA Girl's Disco Brites in Disco Ball

Another quick post today. I wanted to recreate the effect of television static on my nails but with a pop of color.  For this mani, I used a white base (two coats) and neon colored glitter sand, sprinkling randomly over the nail before the second coat of white fully dried. Finally, end off with two coats of Seche Vite to cover up the grainy-ness (is there even such a word!) of the sand. I like how the overall effect turned out, kinda reminds me of happy, fizzy candy powder. Mmmmm fizzy candy. Maybe I'll go grab some later. :) Cheers!

NOTD: Celeb City

Sally Hansen's Celeb City, Essence's Underwater, ArtDeco Black and White striper polish 

Just a quick abstract french mani using a base of good old Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Extreme Wear in Celeb City. Wasn't very happy that the black bled out when I applied top coat, but oh well, things happen when you rush through a manicure. OK. Off to watch 'One day' with my girlies. I hope I don't bawl. The last thing I need is puffy eyes at lab tomorrow.

 Ta! :)
