Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 613

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start.

1. Can you change a tire?

Probably not! I wish I could. It seems like one of those life skills everyone should learn in high school, but…ya know. I did not.

2. Liquid, pencil, gel or cake eyeliner?

Pencil, because smudgy lines and diffused edges 4 life, baby.

3. Summer, spring, winter or fall?

Spring, assuming there are allergy meds around, because apparently I’m allergic to life as we know it.

And my second favorite season is fall.

4. How many TVs are there in your house?

Just the one in our living room. El Hub has been lobbying for a second TV in our bedroom for years, but I’m not having it, LOL!

Of course, every phone and tablet screen substitutes for a TV nowadays, so I don’t know how much it matters.

5. Favorite color or colors?

I’ve always loved purple, but I’ve been drawn to pastel coral, pink, yellow and orange more than ever lately.

Essie Expressie Update

Hiya! I’m off to work at the bakery in just a few, so before I remove my nail polish and say g’bye to my pink Essie Expressie weekend mani, here’s what the polish looked like after two days…

The nails on my left hand, which is my usual swatch hand, survived Saturday and Sunday with minimal chips at the tips.

There were a few decent dents on my right hand, all of which showed up immediately after I was futzing with some Legos (#MOMLIFE) on Saturday morning. To the polish’s credit, the chips didn’t get bigger over time.

All in all, it held up pretty well, considering that I didn’t use a separate base coat or top coat. If you need to quickly paint your paws for an event, or if you’re like me and only need your nail polish to last a couple days at a time, these polishes do the trick quite nicely.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
