Patchwork and awards!

Hi guys!

It's time for little awarding!
Altough it takes me so much time to do award posts, I really like receiving one because I know there are bloggers out there who like my blog enough to give it an award. So thank you for that!

But, first I must show you what I did with yesterday's nail polish. According to many of your comments, you really liked that one. But I wouldn't be what I am if I didn't add something on it.
This simple nail art was inspired by Kayla Shevonne who made na excellent tutorial on patchwork.

I'm sorry for not so good photos this time, but the weather was cloudy and I couldn't help it, since I don't have a light box and this is the best that my low quality camera can do. That's why my hands look like dead man's... :(

Now on to the awards!
I got two of them :)

First, Top 10 award

The Top 10 award rules:

- Thank the person who tagged you and link to their blog.
- Put the Top 10 Award logo on your blog.
- List your top 10 cosmetics.
- Choose 10 bloggers to tag, link to their blogs, and let them know.

Thanks to MorePolishPlz who tagged me for this one. She's rather new in blog world so I send her my support to keep the good work.

10 cosmetics:

I must say that, except for nail polishes, I'm not really a cosmetics person, as you will see from my list.

1.Nail polish -  all of them, from cheapest to most expensive ones, I can't really make a choise of one, because I love all that I own
2.Lip balm - I can't live without it, my lips tend to get dry and I constantly have at least two or three with me
3.Essence Eyebrow set - I like my brows big and thick
4.Hair spray - any brand (except Garnier) will do
5.Black eye pencil
6.Green Line corrector in stick
7.88 eyeshadow palette from Coastal Scents with metallic finish
8.Refan hand creams - they all smell so good and do their job great
9.Garnier pure toner with zinc
10.Catrice lipstick - they all act like lip balm: keep your lips moisturized instead of drying them out like most lipsticks do

That was hard, I had no more inspiration after number 7! :)
I will tag blogs in the end of post, as I have to tag more blogs for the other award.

Second award is Best Blog Award

The rules for this one are are:

- Link back to the person who passed you the award
- Complete the form below
- Share 7 random things about yourself
- Award 10 blogs
- Drop them a line and tell them about it

Thank you D.I.A.N.A. for tagging me! 
Name your favorite color: It's complicated, in nail polish it would be green and blue, and as my symbol  and color that suits me best I choose red
Name your favorite song:  Again, it's complicated, I have the best sad song, best 'story' song, best lifting song... I would rather name the band that made most of my favourite songs: Bon Jovi
Name your favorite dessert: Fruit cake that I don't have to do by myself :)
What makes you mad?  Human greed, amorality and rudeness
When you’re upset you… :  Sing
Your favorite pet? My dog Timmy, now 17 years old, sort of a part of our family
Black or white? Black, it can be combined with anything
Your biggest fear is? Living a boring life
Your best feature is? I'm always right! :)  I organize things pretty good.
Everyday attitude: I must seize the day!
What is perfection? Perfection is a thing they try to get you believe in so you could spend your days looking for it instead of living your life
Guilty Pleasure: As all nail bloggers, I suppose: buying something from a wishlist and then craving for the next thing on the list and forgeting about the thing I just bought!

I already said 7 random things about myself for some other award so I don't feel like saying it again, I have no more inspiration! :)
