A summary of 2012

In Cactus blog I found this list, in swedish though. But I decided to translate it and edit it some too..Some questions I didn't feel like answering so then I didn't. Hope you'll enjoy, if you're not in to this text stuff, check out my gradient nail art of today instead.

Have you done something this year that you haven't done before?
Nail polish: This year I really treated my self with nail polish as ever before. Other years I've been holding my money more tight. This year I bought polishes I wanted from other years as well.
Personal: I've probably done something new, but nothing spectacular.
What countries did you visit?
Nail polish: Nail polishes arrived from the US, Brazil, UK and places in Asia. And Sweden of cause!
Personal: I visited no countries during 2012, but I wish that I had, would have been fun.
Did you miss something 2012 that you wish for in 2013?
Nail polish: Hm, maybe a colorful holo collection..oh, guess what? Something like China Glaze's 2013 holo collection perhaps. ;)
Personal: Maybe to motivate my self better for important things. A job?
What's the best things that happened to you during the year?
Nail polish: I started my blog during the summer, that was fun! :) I also bought a lot of Floam's and that was quite awesome nail polish wise. Oh, and I started using Seche Vite which made my nail polish experiences even better.
Personal: I've had a wonderful year with my boyfriend and dog. Otherwise nothing special.
What was your biggest mistake during the year?
Nail polish: I can't remember any nail polish mistake. Something silly perhaps, dropping bottles in the floor so they broke and buying duplicates of a polish by mistake?
Personal: Not starting to do important school stuff in time.
What was your best purchase during 2012?
Nail polish: Hm, my Floam polishes perhaps? I must give credit to all the Kleancolor polishes as well, good basic colors, perfect for nail art!
Personal: I haven't bought so many personal stuff during 2012..Nothing expensive at least, more like small but cute jewelries from ebay.
What did you spend the most money on?
Probably food and rent. And then probably nail polish combined with clothes and jewelries.
What made you happy this year?
Nail polish: All people commenting and reading my blog. Thank you! :)
Personal: My boyfriend.
Did you feel better or worse during 2012?
Much better, 2012 was a much better year than the majority 2011. I met my boyfriend in the end of 2011.
Is there anything you wish you would have spent more time doing?
Nail polish: Not really something special. Maybe finding more awesome nail art blogs? :)
Personal: Studying and improving things I wish I now was better at doing.
Did you get in love?
Nail polish: My many floams and my new black and white glitter polishes. They are awesome in my eyes. :)
Personal: I didn't get in love but I'm still in love with my boyfriend. :)
What was the best television program?
I don't watch so much TV, but lately I've watched The Mentalist a lot. I've seen some Criminal minds and Sons of Anarchy, and the favorite; Dexter.
Do you hate someone you didn't hate before?
No, still hating the same people as much as before. Yes, I'm a hater.
Did you wish for something and got it?
Nail polish: Well, I've bought a lot of polishes, and nail art decorations that I wanted to have.
Personal: I got a beautiful winter jacket from my boy friend that I wanted but I thought it was too expensive so I didn't buy it. At Christmas I got it.
Did you wish for something and didn't get it?
Nail polish: As always, the discontinued polishes or the ones too expensive and hard to get. I would like OPI - Black spotted and China Glaze - OMG collection. And so on.
Personal: It's too soon to say but it seems like I'm not getting the diploma thesis that I wished to have.. (x-jobb in swedish) Now, I'll have to get something, anything..Fun spending 400 hours on something I'm not that interested in. But it's my own fault, it's always possible to be faster, better, wiser etc. And maybe I can still get something at least not boring for diploma thesis. If any one is in need of a fabulous industrial design student wishing to give your company 400 hours of pure work in product development and refinement, then please comment. It starts at the end of April. wink wink. ;)
Which movie was the best of the year?
Nail polish: Ehm, I'm interpreting, but best youtube nail art maker is still LOVE4NAILS. She has inspired me a lot this year.
Personal: All the ones my boyfriend has showed me during the year. A lot of great ones that I hadn't seen before.
Which where the best people you met during 2012?
Nail polish: The newest acquaintance was Kleancolor which I really liked. 
Personal: Haven't seen any new people, not any ones qualifying to be the "best".
How would you describe your style and style of clothing?
Nail polish: Everything, literally everything. I'm varying from nude to neon, from rock to cute nail arts, from advanced nail arts to just one nail polish on the whole nail. But I must say that some are my favorites. I will make a special post for that! :) However in general I like pastels extra in the spring, neons and holo in the sunny summers, dark and vampy shimmers in the autumn and glitter vomits i gold, red and silver in winter (christmas)time.
Personal: I love dark clothing and what ever that's on top must be in a long model (I hate hate hate short t-shirts and shirts). I tend to wear puffy and large pants and skinnier upper thingy. If I don't wear my large pants I wear pantyhose of a thicker model combined with shorts or a skirt. I really love studs, corset details and checked pattern on clothing and shoes. Sometime I like wearing more girly clothes and sometime more masculine clothes. I never wear pastel colored clothes or tight jeans. My boyfriend once said that I got a weird style of clothing.
What made you feel good this year?
My boyfriend, our dog. And my family.
What/who did you miss this year?
Nail polish: Not something I can think about.
Personal: I missed my parents and brother some since they live a long way from where I live.
Which month was the best this year?
Normally I like the summer best but this summer sucked in the sense that I hadn't a job and it was cold and rainy all the time.
Is there anything you could have done better?
Of cause a lot of things, mainly studying harder and more effective. 
How will 2013 differ from 2012?
Nail polish: Less polishes I assume due to the fact that I probably can't afford it. Maybe more time to make nail art if I'm unemployed. Maybe less nail art if I get depressed of not getting a job. We'll see.
Personal: It will be a large change this year. The largest one in many year. I will graduate from university receiving my bachelor in Industrial Design. However I have a hard time seeing my self getting my dream job, the competition is extremely hard and it sadly feels unlikely for tiny little me of getting it. There are a lot of talented people out there. I will try but I still have to search other, less wanted jobs and not in the area of my education. I'm crossing my fingers that I at least have the chance of working with something creative. Fingers crossed, right?!


  1. Roligt att du ville vara med och svara på listan! Kul att läsa svaren :)
    Det kommer säkert ordna sig, med ex-jobb och jobb och allting, saker har en konstig förmåga att lösa sig i slutet trots allt :) Jag trodde aldrig att jag skulle få ett vettigt jobb när jag var färdig, jag som inte kunde nått ^^ Men sen ramlade drömjobbet över mig i form av en liten annons på arbetsförmedlingens hemsida...

    Jag hade gärna låtit dig designa flaskor och loggor åt mina frankenlack men jag tror inte det skulle ta 400 timmar, knappast ens 4 ;)

    1. Tack för ditt fina svar. Och visst, på ett eller annat sätt måste det ju lösa sig med xjobb och jobb. Det gäller väl att inte ge upp i första taget utan att kämpa lite, man kan ju inte bara få saker man önskar kastade till sig. ;)

      haha..och du är för söt..jag hade nog lagt minst 8 timmar och gjort taggiga men ergonomiska flaskor och flashiga loggor. ;)

  2. Fun to know more about you Gelic'! :D
    Don't worry! Most things turn out for the best in the end!
    I'm glad I found you here this year! It so fun seeing what you do nailwise and I always look forward to your comment on my blog! :D

    1. Thank you so much! and yes I hope things will solve them selves nicely with some hard work, help and luck. :) I'm glad I found your blog too, it's so inspiring and fun reading your blog. I never knew that bloging could be so fun and especially social! :D


I love when you comment my posts even if it's just a simple hello. To simplify I will answer the comments in the post you wrote them in. I'll answer all comments so please check back if you want. :) Have a nice day!
