My Answers
  1. Aside from your nail polish, what's the one item you could not live without? My flat iron.
  2. What's the most recent book you've read? OR if you don't enjoy reading, what's 1 more activity you enjoy other than polish and blogging? I am just starting to read Fifty Shades of Grey.  The last book that I finished reading was One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell.
  3. What's your favorite holiday? Christmas!
  4. Story time! I want to hear a funny story from your childhood :D I don`t know if this is so much funny or if it`s just gross but it`s literally all I can think of.  I was about 12 years old and I was on a family vacation with my parents and little brother (he would have been about 5 at this time).  We were on our way to Las Vegas from Disneyland I believe.  We were driving and we were crossing the corner of Arizona during the late morning or early afternoon I think.  It was soooooooooooooooo hot and muggy.  Dad stopped to fill up the vehicle with gas and treated us all to slurpees.  I was sooooooooooo overheated and I LOVE slurpees so much that I totally downed mine in a few minutes flat (and it was a large one).  We were back on the road and it had not even been 15 minutes later I don't think.  Having cooled my body temp down so fast and drastically by chugging my slurpee combated with the extreme heat and mugginess of the climate in Arizona, I practically went into sudden convulsions that no one could have anticipated, and before I could warn dad in any way to pull over I got super sick and my mom was twisted around half out of her passenger seat in the front reaching into the back trying to find anything at all for me to be sick into.  Even my brother was scrambling to try and help.  Turns out I filled a bunch of empty plastic bags and then promptly passed out!  I didn`t hear or see a thing until the late hours of the evening when we were just pulling into the surrounding area of Las Vegas and I remember thinking ``where the hell are we?" as I saw nothing but dark and dessert surrounding a sea of the brightest lights I had ever seen.  Needless to say, I have never chugged a slurpee since!  But it did not swear me off of slurpees, I don't think anything could make me give up slurpees LOL.
  5. What's your favorite color? Red or Pink
  6. If you could have any animal, alive, fictional or extinct, as a pet what would you pick? Definitely a white tiger!!!
  7. Favorite and least favorite beauty products, doesn't have to be polish! Fave beauty product would probably be eos lip balm.  I use it like 50 times a day and I have them all over the house.  I have one at my desk, one in the living room, one on my nightstand in my bedroom and one in my purse.  Plus I have about 3 to 4 backups at any given time.  Least fave is probably deodorant.  It's necessary for obvious reasons but I don't like using the deodorants with aluminum in them and there are very few to choose from that don't contain aluminum and the ones that do exist don't really have the greatest scents and there aren't any that are unscented.
  8. If you love to cook, what is one of your favorite things to make? If not, just tell me what your favorite food is! I do love to cook.  Not as much as I used to mind you as I find it hard to find the time to cook a really fabulous meal between the toddler and the baby and the husband and everything that needs to be done around the house.  But my fave thing to cook is lasagna.  A big pan of lasagna will feed us all for 2 to 3 days so it alleviates the cooking duties for a bit LOL.  When I make lasagna the middle layer is so densely full of rich, creamy cheese mixed with spinach.  And I love to put a super thick layer of mozza over the top of the lasagna and I bake it until the corners get nice and brown and a little crispy.  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
  9. Since polish and candy seem to go hand in hand, what's your favorite candy? Salt water taffy (drool)
  10. Favorite place to buy polish? an online store
  11. If you had to sell all of your polish and never buy any ever again, which 5 would you keep? Includes base and top coats because I'm a jerk like that :P China Glaze Calcium Gel Fortifier, Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, Color Club Halo-graphic, OPI DS Extravagance, Rainbow Honey Pinkie Promise.
My Questions for My Nominees
  1. What got you started into blogging?
  2. Would you change your name, and if so, what would you change it to? (just thinking of that episode of Friends where Phoebe changes her name to Princes Consuela Banana Hammock and her husband Mike threatens to change his to Crap Bag LMAO!)
  3. What is your favorite live concert you've ever been to?  If you have never been to a concert, just tell me your favorite album to listen to.

  1. omg that childhood story! that's just crazy.. I didn't know that could happen.. I mean I knew about getting brain freeze from slurpees but wow. Don't blame you for never chugging another one. I don't like heights, but I think part of my problem is a fear of falling, also. I HATE bridges for that reason. Agreed, love white tigers (sorry you're allergic to cats.. that sucks!) and lasagne simply is one of the best foods :)
