The Liebster Award

This morning I had a fun surprise to wake up to. I have been lucky enough to be nominated for the Liebster Award.... Three times! Kyoti's Nails, I Feel Polished, and Crazy Nail Lady all nominated me.  Here's a bit about the 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.

11 Things About Me:

1. I work at Rite Aid
2. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs
3. I love tacky fashion
4. I tried to dye my hair lavender once
5. I bought a bracelet from some boy scouts yesterday
6. I am fairly flexible
7. When I move away from  my hometown, it will probably be to northern Oregon.
8. I love the internet
9. I have misophonia. Pretty much that means that I cannot tolerate eating noises. I rage.
10. I get super grumpy in warm weather
11. I hate all sports, they are boring

Now it's time to answer questions. Since 3 different people wrote questions for me, I'll answer my favorite 11 of the 33 given.

1. Where is one place you would go if money weren't an object?
London. :) I wanna see cool things and hear cool accents.

2. How did you choose the name of your blog?
Apple Lacquer. When thinking of a name, I looked around for inspiration, and saw an apple on the kitchen table. My plan was to hold an apple for each of  my pics. So far I haven't done that once. :)

3. If you could design your own polish line what would it be called and what would be the first collection you would create?
Probably would be called Apple Lacquer, and my first collection would probably be inspired by fashion/my closet.

4. What is your go to color?
Lilac/lavender. Every time.

5. Do you own any indie polishes? If so, what kind? If not, what is the first one you would buy?
Yes. So many probably around 55. All different kinds but mostly glitter topcoats.

6. What is your dream polish (an actual one or one you've dreamt up)?
A slightly black tinted clear base with lavender holo and gunmetal holo glitters in chunky sizes, every shape except bar. (including butterflies, stars, etc)

7. What was your biggest polish fail?
 Need I say more?

8. How big is your collection? (pics please!)
Around 200? Maybe 220? IDK.

 This was like 50 polishes ago.

9. What movie or show could you re-watch every week/month for the rest of your life?
Gentlemen Broncos. It's by the makers of Napoleon Dynamite, except its plot is based around a teenage sci-fi novel writer. So funny!!!

10. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A DJ. Lol!

11. What was your first pet?
My black lab Emma. I love her still to this day, though she's passed a few years ago. Best dog ever. We could wrestle and she'd show me her big shiny white teeth and growl while still wagging her tail. Then we could hug and she would know rough-housing time was over. I hand-made her a lace collar and sewed pearls on individually. We slept side by side every night on my bed. I love my baby Emma.

My questions for my tagged 11 :)

1. How did you get started with blogging?

2. What is the landscape like where you live?

3. What is your favorite type of pants?

4. What are your pet's names?

5. What do is your dream job?

6. What is your absolute least favorite polish?

7. What is your dream date?

8. What is your least favorite TV show?

9. What was your biggest nail polish fail?

10. What was your first boyfriend or girlfriend like?
11. What's your favorite color for toe nail polish?
