Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 548

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Good question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll. 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 gazillion years (more than 10!). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a great start. 👍

1. Velcro or buttons?

Buttons.

That is all. I don’t have anything else to add.

2. Taylor Swift or Joan Jett?

Hmm… If we’re only talking about music I’m most likely to listen to on the treadmill, then Taylor Swift. But if I were picking one of them to draw strength from as a lifeforce, then Joan Jett for sure.

3. How much do you value the reviews on Sephora and Ulta?

I check ’em. Mostly, I skin through them to see if I can detect any themes that keep popping up over and over again, and I’ll keep them in mind when I’m thinking about purchasing a product, but I don’t comb through each and every single one because I know that some people leave 5-star reviews because a product is new and they think it’s cool.

It’s like anything. You have to take them with a grain of salt.

4. What leftovers are in your fridge right now?

All sorts of gluten-free nonsense, none of which I want to eat. We’ve got some pad Thai (wasn’t very good; there was only one potato, which to me is a travesty), yellow chicken curry and some leftover cold, soggy French fries.

Except for the tacos El Hub made last night, it was not a weekend of culinary delights.

5. What’s the best nail polish top coat?

I really like Smith and Cult Above It All. It keeps my mani shiny for longer than other top coats.

I also like Seche Vite, which I’ve been using off and on since the Triassic Period (apparently, I’m not the only one who likes it either).

The only thing I don’t like about Seche Vite is that it gets really goopy, really fast, so the bottles never last too long.

Deep thoughts on a Monday morning… How do you feel about frosting?

So we’ve gone to a couple of festive parties lately, and I’ve noticed something interesting to me that I would like to get your opinion on.

Frosting.

Kids will do anything for frosting. They lose their damn mind, and from what I’ve gathered, for kids, frosting is the main event. It’s more important than the actual cake or cupcake.

Like at a recent 3-year-old’s birthday party we went to, the second one boy’s mom wasn’t looking, he leaned over the table with his spoon and scraped off a huge chunk of frosting from the birthday girl’s cake, and even when Connor eats cupcakes, she’s all about the frosting. She eats the frosting first, and then may or may not eat the cupcake or the cake as a secondary afterthought.

For me, frosting is an accompaniment to the main event, but I don’t know if I’m in the majority. What about you? What’s your take on frosting?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
