Liebster Award!! Thank you to Muffin Nails!!

I was nominated for a Liebster Award from Muffin Nails.  Thanks, Muffin!!

Since more than one person nominated me, I just chose my favorite questions from each one. 

These 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. 

11 fun facts about Lacey - My Boyfriend Hates Makeup:
1. My favorite nail colors are pinks, lilacs, pastels.
2. I cannot stamp for the life of me. You'll prob never see that here. Instead, you'll be subjected to my 3rd grade line drawing skills.
3. My children are my pets! I have two Shiba Inus and one Siamese. All are rescued!!!!  I firmly believe in rescue. Shelby has a FB page if you want to see picks of my babies: Shelby Roberson!! 
4. My real life occupations are history Professor at a community college and online marketing for a CD company.
5. I only stopped biting my nails in 2010, this is a new hobby!!
6. I wish I was better at consistency - blogging more, exercising more, doing anything longer than a week!
7. One day I will visit Fiji!!
8. I wish I was a professional singer. I sing constantly in my car. But never in front of others and I'd never ever do karaoke!
9. I have three tattoos, 2 hidden on my back and one on my wrist. My next one will be a world map.
10. I went skydiving for my 18th birthday and it was still one of the coolest things I've ever done!
11. My boyfriend really does hate makeup. There's never a moment where I dont hear "why are your hands slimy?" "do you have to put that on your face?" "you bought another polish?" "i'm pretty sure you have that color" UGH!!!

My answers:
1. If you could only buy three more polishes for the rest of your life, what would they be?
The first would have to be Connect The Dots by Lynnderella!  It is such an awesome black/white topcoat with a fine silver shimmer.  There are hexs, big and small, bar glitters, and her formula is pretty perfect.  I wont buy another polish at the new $20 and up eBay price, but let's ignore that for now!

The second would be a lilac purple, like Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac, for obvious reasons ;)

The third would probably be a pale mint color, like Orly Ancient Jade.  Soo pretty!

2. How often do your paint your nails?
Pretty much every 2-3 days!  I dont mean to do it as much but if they chip, I will bite them which is baaaad.  I am an ex-biter so they've got to be looking pretty much perfect for me to leave them alone.  
Plus, since I teach, I try to keep my makeup neutral so my nails get to be wild!

3. What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
When I was 13, I traveled to Austria with my aunt, her boyfriend at the time, and his niece.  I ordered a salmon and pesto pizza on flatbread (no marinara sauce).  It was amazing but odd!

4. What’s your favorite nail trend?
Pastels! I love soft spring-time looks.

5. Least favorite?
Tactile manicures like the microbeads and now the velvet manicure.  The cutest version I've seen was an "Astroturf" mani w/little football players, LOL.  I can't do the tactile stuff, I would just be picking at it or touching it and I'd never ever get anything done.

6. Zombies or unicorns?
Unicorns all the way.  Soft, fuzzy, happy, pastel, ponies. My Little Pony's were my favorite thing ever - I'm a child of the 1980's!!

7. What’s your favorite nail polish brand?
For mainstream brands, I vote China Glaze and I've recently come to this conclusion.  I love the coverage and colors.

For indie brands, I'd say Rainbow Honey.  I only have two now (with two from the Sakura Collection on the way!!) and I love the uniqueness.  Pahlish is a close second!

8. What is the most you’ve ever paid for a bottle of polish?

9. What’s the nail design you’re most proud of?
I am not much of an artist! :)

10. What nail design did you try out that totally flopped?
I tried a galaxy manicure with a pink base which totally ruined the point! LOL.

11. What do you like to do other than blogging and nail polish?
I don't have time for much else b/c of school!  I work, I teach history, I research history, I play with my dogs, spend time with my boyfriend, I love traveling especially to see my family in Connecticut, I love photography.

YOUR Questions:
1. How do you organize your stash? 
2. If there was a fire, and your family was all safe, what 5 polishes are you rescuing?
3. When did you start loving makeup/polish/beauty products?
4. Describe your personal style.
5. One word that people that know you well would use to describe you.
6. Where is the weirdest place you ever polished your nails?
7. Do you have any other hobbies besides nail polish?
8. What is your favorite wild animal?
9. When and why did you start blogging?
10. How many bottles of polish do you own?
11. What do your friends / family think of your hobby?
