First and foremost: I need to confess that this post is a total and complete cheat. I hope I'll benefit from some highly extenuating circumstance when the time comes, ya'll know, the one I'll magically pull out of my lawyerly sleeve [please note the irony].
I had not a single Q named brand or polish, and had not even thought about a quilted mani. I was quite worried, and I actually came up with this title [Quick cheat manicure] while I was asleep and dreaming. Honest. That's how obsessive I am. I am glad I remembered my
genius last resort idea... at work. Sometimes my brain worries me...
I hope you will be able to forgive the lack of a true Q-related nail item. Meanwhile, let me introduce you my current NOTW (nail of the week, 'cuz I am busy like that): Illamasqua Loella.
Two coats of the true Barbie pink / bubblegum pink, amiright? Well, I have been avoiding those since forever, but recently caved in and bought me three similar shades. If you cave in, cave in for good, I say!
I am so glad I surrendered... With my skintone, the color does really pop out while being a classic shade. I wouldn't wear it on longer nails, but that's a particular taste of mine. I also have to admit I'd rather wear this on somewhat shorter nails but hey, I am not chopping my nails because of that.
