Liebster Award

Hannah from Tooth and Nails nominated me for a Liebster Award in a comment a couple of days ago. Clicking on Hannah's blog, I learned that someone else had previously nominated her, gave her 11 questions to answer and asked that she share 11 random facts about herself. She in turn would nominate other bloggers that have less than 200 followers, ask them 11 questions and have them share 11 random facts. I think the idea is more like a chain mail letter than anything else but it sounded like fun and a nice way to spread some some among lesser-known bloggers, so here is my contribution:

Eleven Random Facts about Me:

1) I used to play the piano for a long time (about 10 years) but no longer do.
2) I have a whey allergy and am lactose intolerant which means I cannot eat cheese or dairy without gastro consequences. But that doesn't always stop me from indulging.
3) I am taller than both of my parents.
4) I wear bright blue eyeglasses.
5) I have a very large collection of t-shirts.
6) I read a lot, right now mostly paranormal urban fantasy.
7) When asked for favorites, I can never just pick one, I have to give a least a few favorites.
8) I am the first one of my family to be born in the US (both my parents are from Iran).
9) I can be shy with new people but once I feel comfortable with someone, I will talk their ear off. When I was younger I would get in trouble with teachers for chatting too much in class.
10) I am a comedy nerd, from my love of comedy podcasts, to going to see comedians live and watching TV comedies.
11) I collect vintage glassware.

Questions from Tooth and Nails:

1) What's your favorite non-nail polish beauty brand? I don't really have a favorite brand, more favorite beauty products: YSL Glossy Stains, Illamasqua blushes, Makeup Forever Face & Body Foundation, Eyeko mascara, and Jo Malone perfumes.
2) What got you into nail polish? I have always had an interest in nail polish since I was a teen but I was never quite as into it as I am now. I saw a picture of a holographic nail polish and wanted to know more, starting looking a blogs, and down the rabbit hole I went.
3) Is there a certain color of polish that you always seem to buy? Blue, I can never say no to a good blue nail polish.
4) How do you feel about indie nail polish? I am a big supporter of indie nail polish sellers. I like the originality and thought that can go into the colors and that the sellers are just as passionate as nail polish as I am. Overall I have had positive experiences and though there have been a few not so great purchases, that can be said for most type of products.
5) If you could create your perfect nail polish color, what would it be? I love blue but a close second is orange and I would love to have a bright orange nail polish with purple shimmer. I don't know how to do this   though, so for now, it's just a fantasy.
6) What do your friends think of your polish collection? They are okay with it, I don't know if they realize just how much polish I have.
7) What's your favorite color combo? A couple that I like are mint and gold & purple and orange.
8) Do you have an overall obsession with makeup or just polish? Overall I love beauty products, but besides polish, I am obsessed with blush and lip stains.
9) What's the most expensive polish you own? Chanel Kaleidoscope
10) How do you store your collection? Within a overflowing Helmer.
11) Besides nail polish, what's another one of your loves? My two cats.

My Questions:

1) Do you have a favorite perfume or scent and if so, what is it?
2) What is the last polish that you bought?
3) What is your favorite nail polish finish?
4) How often do you change your nail polish?
5) What is an easy to find lemming that you haven't fulfilled?
6) What is your favorite commercial nail polish brand?
7) What color do you find yourself buying the most?
8) Do you have anyone in real life that shares your polish obsession?
9) In what number range is your polish collection?
10) What is a future polish release that you are excited about?
11) Do you collect anything else besides nail polish?
