Shine on, sweet friend!

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. 🌻

The Nail Polish Edition!

1. Matte or glitter finish?

Glitter finish…but I DO NOT look forward to taking it off, since glitter is such a pain to remove, ugh! I have no patience for it.

2. Cream or shimmer?

Cream, please.

3. Would you rather…skip your base coat or skip your top coat?

Skip the base coat. Top coat, at least for me, makes more of a difference in wear time.

4. Nail polish color(s) you wear the most?

Jade and pastel greens, baby blues, teals, purples (all shades!), and nude shades of peach, rosy taupe, pink and beige.

5. Nail polish color(s) you wear the least?

Black, red and orange.

6. When was the last time you had a manicure or a pedicure?

Honestly, I can’t remember. I think it might’ve been the Gel Manicure Incident from 2018?

Geez, that was a while ago!

7. Which fingernails do you usually paint first — the ones on your left, or right hand?

I always use my left hand to paint my right hand nails first, because when I was a teenager I read an article in a magazine (remember those?!) that said you should always start by painting the nails on your non-dominant hand first.

I don’t remember the logic behind it, but I think it had something to do about lessening your chances for smudging.

8. Accent nails — yea or nay?

I used to be a “yea,” but now I’m a “nay.”

9. Have you ever worn press-on/stick-on fake nails?

Actually, I have! They come in handy if you have an event or something to go to and you run out of time to paint your nails.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

P.P.S. Hope you’re having a nice day so far. 🤗 How was your Fourth? Camping at Clear Lake was fun. I watched a family of deer foraging wild blackberries by our campsite yesterday morning, and it very nearly brought me to tears.
