No Copius Gems and the Liebster Award

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I was supposed to put a little unboxing post of my new nail polish that I ordered from Copious, along with swatches and stuff, and then the Liebster Award. It's kind of hard when USPS decides to hold my package hostage.

It was supposed to be here yesterday, and it finally moved last night.It may be here tomorrow, but then again it may be here in a week. It's still expected to arrive on the 13th though!

The pictures were taken at a friends house =)

Ready for the Liebster Award?

Awww, the Liebster Award. The little "spread the love" award that makes its way around the internet. I was nominated by Packer Lacquer, AND Lisa's Nail Obsession. Go check them out! I must say, it's changed since the last time I received this award. Rather than doing two posts, I am going to merge them together. I will be answering two sets of questions, but I will only be nominating one set of bloggers (sorry!).

Here's a little bit about this award:

"This little award is all about discovering new blogs and helping those with less than 200 followers to get recognized."

Here are the rules:

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There's no tag backs.

Random things!
