Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 572

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. Who takes care of your brows?

    To quote the great De La Soul, “It’s just me, myself and I.”

    2. If/when you incorporate an accent nail into your manicure, which finger do you typically use?

    I don’t do accent nails anymore (I prefer wearing all the same shade), but when I did, I’d always pick my ring finger, and I do it on both hands. To me it always seemed more balanced that way. I wonder if anyone out there did an accent middle finger. Or an accent thumb?

    3. YOU MUST CHOOSE: Would you rather 1) have to walk around with bare feet for a week (no shoes, no socks, no slippers — absolutely nothing. Just your plain ol’ bare feet on the ground), or 2) have to skip absolutely ALL teeth-related maintenance for a week (i.e. no brushing of any kind, no flossing, no mouthwash, NOTHING)? Note: “Neither” is not a valid option. You have to pick one.

    First of all, GROSS. Second, as much as it would kill me, because I’m such a stickler for oral hygiene, I’d go with option 2… I’d rather have a funky mouth than worry about stepping on a nail or broken glass.

    4. What’s a perfume you’ve worn for years and still love to this day?

    Estée Lauder Pleasures. My fave back in college!

    5. Last thing you said to someone?

    “Go back to sleep, lovie. It’s not time to wake up yet.”

Ya learn something new every day

In my case, the last tidbit of knowledge had to do with nail polish. My fingers are finally painted for the first time in two weeks, YAY! They’ve been bare for a spell because after I removed my last manicure, a peachy pastel by Sally Hansen, I told myself that I’d paint my nails in a few hours, but of course I got distracted, so the few hours turned into a few days, which turned into two weeks…

I course-corrected that on Friday and painted my nails a creamy mauve — Sally Hansen Mave-olous, one of the Miracle Gel Liners.

No chips so far! It held up well all weekend long, but I think I’m *almost* ready to shift gears into something other than a pastel… It feels like time for a change.

What’s the situation with your nails today? Are you wearing a fresh coat?

Have a good rest of your Monday, ‘k? 😊

3. Would you rather 1) have to walk around with bare feet outside for a week (no shoes, no socks, no slippers, absolutely no nothing, just your plain ol’ bare feet on the ground), or 2) have to skip absolutely ALL tooth maintenance for a week (so no tooth brushing, no brushing your teeth with toothpaste on a finger, no flossing, no mouthwash, NOTHING)? By the way, “neither” is not an answer, you have to pick one or the other.

4. What’s a perfume you’ve worn for years and still love to this day?

5. Last thing you said to someone?
