Glitter in Their Veins Badge

I came across this tag scrolling through one of my new found time wasters, Pinterest, and thought of all the lovely ladies I know who totally embody this message (see below).

And then it occurred to me that I could theoretically create a badge (or semi-award?) to give out to girls and they in turn could put this on their blog and pass it on.  Those award-y things have to start somewhere, right?

So here's what I'm calling the Glitter in Their Veins Badge:

This is awarded to those bloggers who have mastered the art of glitter (a battle I have yet to win, so I will not be posting this badge on my own blog).

Here are my Glitterati:

Alexandra from Alexandra RC
Amanda from Fashion Footing
Chelsea from Nailed Blog
Heather from The Polished Panda
Holly from Holly and Polish
Katherine from Haul of Fame
Sarah from See Sarah Swatch

I'm sure there are more of you out there, but these are the few that I've noticed with a penchant for glitter.  Here are the "rules":

- Acknowledge receipt of this award: I don't need credit, this is more about just posting this badge/tag.

- Post a swatch of your favorite glitter polish: To prove you're deserving, of course :)

- Pass this on to 4 more Glitterati: I know I started with 10, but I always think it's more special when you have to really narrow down who deserves it.  And be sure not to forget to inform your honorees you passed this on to them!

Congratulations, ladies!

Minor note: while typing up this post, I Googled this quote to make sure it wasn't copyrighted.  It is, in fact, something Paris Hilton said.  While I am in no way, shape, or form a fan of this person, I'm choosing to ignore its origins and focus on how it relates to nail polish.  I ask (hope!) you girls do the same.
