Sunshine Award

This is my type of award. No rules. Thank you to Kiss My Acetone for giving me this award! Check out her blog if you're not already following her. I'll admit, I first followed her for the cute blog name but I stayed because her blog is amazing. 

“The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and
creativity inspire others in the blogging world.
The Sunshine Award is given by bloggers to bloggers
 as a way to spread the bloggy love.” 

I'm giving this award to these blogs: 


Stylish Blogger Award

I never get tired of blog awards, I love getting them, receiving them and doing them.

Thank you to the lovely Power Femme for this award. I finally got around to doing it. However, I feel like I'm missing someone. If you gave me this award as well, please let me know!
1. Link back to the person who gave it to you.
2. List 7 things about yourself that you haven't mentioned before
3. Tag 7 people and let them know you've done so!

Now, I've already received this award so I'll skip the tag part but I do appreciate the award itself. I am always excited to get one! To me, it's like a congrats for having a great blog.

As always, I'd like to give this award to all my followers and readers. Don't be afraid to do this tag!

Top 10 Award

I was given this award by Liquid Jelly and Sugar Stars! Make sure you check these ladies out, they both do amazing nail art and great swatches!

My Top Ten: I'm not a big makeup girl so I'll just do top ten nail products/polishes. (Not in any particular order)

  1. Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat. This stuff dries so fast! At first I didn't believe it when someone said it'd be at least 90% dry in 5-8 minutes, but it's true. I've never seen anything like it.
  2. Ulta Pinata Yada Yada. I love all the different glitters!
  3. Zoya Zara. A new favorite, this is the prettiest Zoya polish I own, so gorgeous!
  4. Toothpicks. No seriously, cheapest dotting tool ever.
  5. Orly Space Cadet. I'll own this beauty someday.
  6. China Glaze White Cap. Layered, this polish can make any color 10x prettier!
  7. Zoya Breezi. The perfect blue, not too dark, not too light.
  8. OPI Silver Shatter. Shiny and crackle? How could I not love it?
  9. Kleancolor Chunky Holo Bluebell. I recently posted swatches of this nail polish, it's such an incredible effect on your nails.

Stylish Blogger Award!

I was given this award by the amazing Monique over at Forever'92! Thank you! Check out her blog if it's new to you. She posts swatches, nail art and everything in between. She's also having a giveaway right now!

Now the rules are that I must tell 7 random facts about myself and tag 7 bloggers. Well, I'm breaking the rules (again).

I'll tell a few random facts because I can't think of anything else at the moment. 

1. Chinese food is my favorite. Followed closely by Italian and my mom's.

2. In honor of LGBT, month, I've said it before and I will say it again, I 100% support gay rights and everything LGBT related. I'll also be doing a manicure for LGBT month later on.

3. I'm a dog person, can't stand cats.

As for the tagging part...I'm passing this to all my readers who have blogs!


Stylish Blogger Award

I love the idea of blog awards. It just a great feeling to be awarded one. I want to thank Allison from I am Definitely Addicted for giving me this award. This is my first Stylish Blogger Award and no matter how weird it sounds, I'm really excited about this one!
Here are the rules:
Thank and link back to the person who sent you the award.
Share seven things about yourself.
Spread the love. Award seven recently discovered bloggers.
Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.
1. My favorite food is shrimp. I can sit down and eat bucket fulls and never get tired of the taste. 
2. One of my nail polish pet peeves is when people paint their nails and let it chip off instead of removing it once there are chips. I understand if you are busy and don't have the time, but when it's been two weeks and they still look a mess--there is no excuse! 
3. I strongly dislike Ke$ha, and any other attention whore. 
4. I'm incredibly indecisive. Sometimes I'll stand by the thrash can for a good minute or so debating on whether or not to spit out my gum.
5. I'm right-handed.
6. I have a fear of pain. I think you call that Agliophobia
7. I am addicted to Sour Patch Kids. They're so cute too!

Now I tag:

I know this award has been around for some time now so if you've already received this award, or just don't do awards, I won't get offended if I don't see a post. (:


Diamond Cosmetics Decadence + Liebster Award

I have already received this award but its great to receive another one! Thank you so much Carla for nominating me for it!

"The Liebster Award is designed to bring well deserved additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 300 followers. If you receive the award, link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate 3 more blogs."

I'm breaking the rules and giving this award to any of my readers that own a blog with under 300 followers. Any blog owner knows that owning and running a blog is a lot harder than it looks so I think you all deserve it. (:
Now for today's manicure...
Brown is a color I have been wanting to try on my nails for a really long time. I wasn't too sure if I'd like it against my skin but Decadence proved me wrong. I haven't tried any other Diamond Cosmetics polishes before but I'm glad I have this beauty.

Diamond Cosmetics Decadence is a beautiful brown shimmer. Maybe it's just me but I see a bit of a red shimmer in it. Decadence applied like a dream! 2 thin, opaque coats and I was ready to go. It also dried quickly and was so shiny on it's own. The pictures above are with no top coat.

What is another pretty brown polish that you know of? I'm dying to add more to my collection!


Liebster Award

Thank you so much Forever '92 for giving me this award! I'm so happy to be receiving it. This is only my second blog award and I'm really happy to see people who enjoy reading my blog. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for my amazing followers. (:

The Liebster Award is designed to bring well deserved additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 300 followers. If you receive the award you link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate 3 more blogs.

I'm choosing these three blogs:

Please, if you get the chance, check out these fabulous ladies and Forever '92. Their blogs are great!


Kreativ Blogger Award

Thank you for giving me this award! It's crazy, I was just reading her blog and she just recently got this award as her very first blogger award. This is my very first one too! The whole time I was reading her post I kept thinking "Man, I wish I could earn a blogger award..." How crazy is that?
Anyway, let's get on with it. Here are the rules:

Write 10 facts about yourself.
Pass the award to 10 bloggers and tell them about the award.

10 facts? Hm, I think I'll be random with these...

1. My first kiss was in first grade. All my friends always have these cute or funny stories about their first kiss in junior high and mine was just with some boy in the first grade. But hey! He wasn't a bad kisser for his age. I still remember thinking "Isn't this supposed to be gross?" the whole time it was happening.

2. My name is Shaina. Pronounced shay-nuh for some that may not know.

3. When I was 12, I ran up my cell phone bill to $3000 dollars! I thought I had unlimited everything, but apparently not. My parents refused to buy me a cell phone after that. 

4. I am bilingual, I speak Creole and English. My first language is of course English, but I learned to speak Creole as I grew up. (My parents were born in Haiti where Creole is the language they speak.)

5. One of my biggest pet peeves, that everyone thinks is strange, is that I hate when people touch me. And I don't mean "Let's hop in bed and get freaky", I mean, I hate when people touch my neck, or legs. Even if it's just an accident. It's really annoying.

6. I have an enormous crush on Bradley Cooper! He is easily one of the sexiest guys in Hollywood. Not even gonna' lie.

7. I am ALL FOR gay rights. 100%, no question about it. I may not be bisexual or a lesbian but I truly believe in gay rights.

8. I do not like doors or windows being opened. They must be closed at all times, especially when I am sleeping. I guess you could call that another strange pet peeve.

9. My favorite song at the moment is Rolling In The Deep by Adele. I'm just throwing that out there since I'm running out of random, semi-interesting facts about myself.

10. I have a small gap in my teeth. The rest of my teeth are straight and everything but I do have a gap that I love. Most people would try to close theirs up as soon as they could but I want mine to stay. It's not huge or anything so I plan on keeping it. (:

There you go! I hope I didn't bore anyone. Now I tag...

I was supposed to tag 10 but I love reading so many different blogs that I just went crazy and tagged 16. If your blog is not listed, don't worry. If I could list all the blogs that I follow, I would, but unfortunately that is not in the rules.
