An Award For My Tiny Blog


As I stated when I first started this blog, my intention was to just sort of document my NOTDs (nail of the days) because sometimes I spent a lot of time on my polish. The other reason was in case someone was searching for swatches that might not be found elsewhere.

A wonderful blogger, Charlotte Sparkle from In the Pink Fog has followed my blog just about since the beginning. And I currently only have 4 followers!! (Edit: I had 4 followers when I started typing this post, I currently have 18!!) I thought it was so sweet that they thought of me to pass this award to. I'm unsure of the origin of this award, but thanks to the generosity of Charlotte Sparkle, I figure I might as well pass it on as well.

I've read that the intent of the award is to help out smaller blogs. After some Googling, I came across this:

"Some time (in the recent past), somewhere (rumor has it that it might be Germany), someone (I guessing he/she was named Liebster) decided to do something nice for a whole lot of bloggers and started the Liebster Blog Award.

It's an award you receive, but it is also an award that you give. If you receive a Liebster Blog Award you are asked to choose 3 other bloggers and send them one as well.

The criteria for giving the awards are simple. They go to bloggers who have fewer than 300 followers and who deserve recognition for a blog well done."

It seems sweet and innocent enough, and if someone thought of me, I figure why not pass it on? I love that it involves giving the award to smaller blogs, instead of those that have thousands of followers and are probably already super well known. I don't currently have intentions of posting other awards, especially if they involve answering questions or doing things other than passing it on. Please do not take that offensively if you choose to pass an award on to me. With that, if you've received this award from me, please please please know that you do NOT have to pass this on, and I am not in the least bit offended if you choose not to. It won't make be unfollow your blog or stop reading it. I understand this isn't everyones thing. But with that, I'd at least like to post about three two blogs that I think are amazing and should receive more credit!

Loodie Loodie Loodie from... Loodie Loodie Loodie (lol)
Why I chose her?
I came across her blog when someone posted it on the Nail Boards on MUA after I had asked questions about some products for my nails. Ironically, she also joined in to post on my question. (MUA does not allow you to post your own blog, so it was just by coincidence that someone led me to her blog AND she actually answered my question directly). I've been fascinated with her blog ever since. She is an incredibly smart lady with gorgeous nails!! If you ever have any questions about nail care, seriously go to her blog. Thanks to her, I started using Nail Tek II and my nails have been in amazing shape ever since. I never thought it was possible, and I have to credit her for the condition of my nails now, and she has no idea how much her blog posts and advice have helped me!!
You can see her posts on this specifically by clicking the link over in my side bar thing. I added it recently because I think it's an AMAZING resource.

KattiePL from... Nails by KattiePL
Why I chose her?
I don't remember how I came across her, but I love her. Just recently she started posting more frequently. Yay!! I chose her because she has some of the most gorgeous nails I've ever seen. She does these simple nail designs in terms of the execution, but she makes them look so regal and beautiful. She also has just plain swatches and comparisons, but there's something about her nail shape and neatness that is so alluring. Even though she doesn't have a ton of content, what she has is definitely quality, and I love going back over the same posts!! This is one of my favorite posts by her, I'm dying to try it!!
I should also mention her blog is written in both English and Polish.

For now, I'm only posting these two blogs. This is the reason I hadn't posted this sooner. I couldn't choose a third. Loodie was a shoe in because she's so awesome, and then KattiePL came along. I don't know who the third will be, but I'll edit this when I find him/her :)
I figured I'd post this because it's been so gosh darn long since I was awarded this, and because Loodie is creepin' up on 300 followers!! (Yay Loodie!!)
