Inside Kimmy's Mind » Yo :D

Yo :D

So I’ve become obsessed with marble nails. I have Pinterest to thank for that.

Now I haven’t gotten the hang of it quite yet, but I manged to get a pretty awesome pattern on my thumb nail. Of course when I tried again the next day the results weren’t as successful. -.- I don’t know what happened but they just kept coming out smeared but I will keep trying until I get the hang of it. So I was tagged twice, by Tina and then by S. Since I have already asked my own questions and answered the 11 facts here I wont bore you by doing it again. >.< However, I will answer the questions I was asked. Since Tina answered hers via vlog I thought I would do the same seeing as it has been way too long since my last vlog. It just takes such a long time to edit it. :/

Questions asked by S

1. How long have you been blogging, and why do you blog? I have been blogging since I was 15 back when greatestjournal was alive, but this blog was started in August of 08. I love blogging, and I love documenting my life.
2. Do you have an unusual skill or talent? Not really. And any skills I do have aren’t really unusual. They are pretty much average skills. :/
3. Where is the most beautiful place you have ever been? I haven’t been anywhere outside of Texas, believe it or not but there are some beautiful places in Texas. None come to mind at the moment, but I’m sure it’ll come to me sooner or late.
4. If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be? Wherever the shop Red Velvet is located. I want to meet the owners so bad.
5. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would buy for yourself? For myself? Well since I have permission to be selfish I will. I would buy myself a new laptop and then give the rest to my parents. 😀
6. What is the one book you think everyone should read? The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides.
7. If you could travel to another time period, when would it be, and why? Probably the 60’s because of the fashion. But I don’t think I would want to stay there for very long. Because I’m spoiled by the present day.
8. In a movie of your life, who would play you? I would either want Natalie Portman or Zooey Deschanel because they are both so adorable.
9. What is your favorite word? Or something you say too often? I think the word serendipity is fun to say. But I don’t get to say it very often. >.<
10. Which fictional character would you like to invite to dinner, at yours? Tom Hansen from the film (500) Days of Summer. I’m in love with that character and with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
11. What is the first website you check when you go online? My blog. 😀 I like looking at it. I just love the layout my sister made me.

Questions from Yishi

1. What would your dream house look like? Like this.
2. If you could have any magical power in the world, what would it be? Usually, I would say the power to absorb knowledge. But I now want the ability to freeze time. 😀
3. What makes you embarrassed? This list could go on forever!!! I’m embarrassed by almost everything. One thing that I encounter on a day to day basis, is tummy growls. My tummy growls uncontrollably loud during classes. And it just embarrasses the hell out of me. I know its not something I should really be embarrassed by. But it does.  XD
4. If you were given a coconut right now, how would you open it? I have no idea. Try to poke a hole in it? I mean that’s what Tom does in Tom and Jerry. I don’t like coconut so I wouldn’t open it, I would just give it to someone who does like it. >.<

Here is my meme post again.  And thanks to those who tagged me.

    Oooh that is such a pretty pretty nail! How did you achieve that effect?

    Ahh I used to be on Livejournal back when I was 14/15…totally miss those days! xD

    @Yishi, It’s a technique known as water marbling. You drop the nail polish into a cup of water and form a design, sort of like how a barista draws a picture in coffee, and then you basically dip your nail into the design. Sort of hard to accomplish, but so awesome when it works out.

    Found you on 20SB, nice blog. As for the marbled nails, are you using purified water at room temp? I find that works best. Also changing the water after a couple nails. It’s quite the process, but they look cool.

    @Nichole, Well hello, no I was just using water from the tap. Thanks for the tips. I’ll be sure to try that the next time I attempt it.

    Thanks for stopping by and reading/commenting. 😀

    I’d like to visit Texas and see some of the smaller towns (rather than the big tourist attractions).

    @Robin, Some small towns are nice. I love my home town. But now that I live in Houston, I’m actually enjoying it. It actually has a lot of hidden places that are worth the visit.

    Those nails just look impossible. Doesn’t Tinkerbell Cosmetics (is that brand still around?) make fake nails you can just glue on?

    @Shelly, I don’t like wearing fake nails. They just come off. I do like using the sticker nails, those work pretty well. But this is freaking amazing. It just takes skill and a lot of patience. Two things I’m working on. XD
