Liebster Award!

I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Jade @ Beauty Kitten! I'm pretty excited and I really appreciate it!
The Liebster Award is given to blogs you love under 200 followers. It's a great way to discover smaller awesome blogs! The rules are fairly simple:

1. Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
2. Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award onto and link them in your post.
3. Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
6. No tag-backs!

Here are my answers to Jade's questions:

1. What makeup product do you have a weakness for? (Ex. blush, lipsticks, mascaras)
Definitely blush! I've got a ton on my wishlist but I've got way too many as it is.
2. What's your favorite season?
Spring! I don't like the heat of summer or the coldness of winter and I love how everything feels new and bright and full of promise in the spring.
3. What's your favorite song right now?
I couldn't pick just one! Mama's Broken Heart by Miranda Lambert and Merry Go Round by Kacey Musgraves.
4. If you had to go on a reality show, which would it be?
Maybe Big Brother? I would hate to be on a reality show!
5. What's your favorite movie genre?
Is historical a genre? I love The Young Victoria, My Week With Marilyn, and The Queen. I'm most looking forward to The Great Gatsby.
6. What's the last book you read?
The last book I finished was Lemony Snicket's Who Could That Be At This Hour?. It's definitely aimed at kids but I've been reading Lemony Snicket books since The Bad Beginning. I'm currently working on A Game Of Thrones by George R.R. Martin.
7. Are you a cat person or a dog person?
I like dogs but I'm definitely a cat person.
8. What's one food that you hate?
Olives. There are a lot of things I can overlook when they are mixed in with everything else (onions, mushrooms) but I can't eat olives.
9. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
I love alliteration. So I just thought of lots of nail polish words and tried to match them up with words that felt very personal to me at the time. My son was still quite small and almost everyone mentioned his monkey toes when they saw him.
10. Do you have any pets?
Together, my boyfriend and I have three cats.
11. Do you make a lot of impulse purchases?
As far as beauty products, yes. I don't often go in with a set idea of what I'm getting but about half of what I end up with I had seen reviews/swatches of before hand.

11 Random Facts About Me:
1. I'm a twin (and that's my default answer for when someone asks for an interesting/random fact about me).
2. I wanted to go to school for pharmacy when I was in high school. I don't regret not doing it, life led me down a different path.
3. I love the scent of Tide and clean laundry. Like I want my whole house to smell like that all the time.
4. My boyfriend and I made our New Year's resolution to eat more pie. So far, so good.
5. Turtles are my favorite animal. Always have been, always will be.
6. I find it really offensive when people "joke" about gingers not having souls.
7. Sir Roger Moore is my favorite Bond but I think Ralph Fiennes will be my favorite M.
8. My sister and I did a carpet commercial in the 5th grade. It was...weird.
9. My favorite restaurant is Olive Garden.
10. I have never broken a bone.
11. I keep lists for everything. Like seriously, everything.
