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.
Barbie pink, bubblegum pink..doesn't matter, I just love every pink colored polish!!ResponderEliminar
And this one really stands out :) btw I think I would cheat too when it comes to this letter ;)
Hahaha, well that's one very pretty Barbie Pink in my opinion! :) Love it and it looks great on you! I've been giving in to a few pinks myself, warm pinks to be specific. If I do get pale pinks, they have to seriously pale. lol!ResponderEliminar
Omgosh! I so know what you mean! See polish, think polish, dream polish and see more polish everywhere! I've even had a dream when I stood at a beauty shop staring for hours at all the polishes deciding which to buy cause they were all so cheap! Hah! Then I woke up. *darn!*
That is a super cute shade of pink. And I love how you worked the Q in. =DResponderEliminar
It's such an awesome pink!!ResponderEliminar
such a lovely pink!ResponderEliminar
Wow the pink is such a nice shade! Love it!!ResponderEliminar
LOVE the color! Your nails look beautiful!ResponderEliminar
I don't think this is a cheat!! At least Illamansqua at least has a Q in it. (ok, I backed you up, now you have to back me up for X week!!)ResponderEliminar
And I think the pink looks good on you>
LOL - you talked about "Q" in your post, so that's good enough for me. And like Dionne said, at least there is a Q in the brand name. Sometimes you gotta stretch.ResponderEliminar
And I love that shade of pink. I wore a bubblegum pink last week, and I forgot how much I like the color...does that sound weird?
I've found myself buying a lot of pinks lately, too. I think it's because I avoided them for so long that it's the only color that wasn't well-represented in my collection lol This is a gorgeous color and cheat, schmeat! You got a mani up and that's what counts!ResponderEliminar
I won't judge you. :D Last year I organized an ABC Challenge with a few italian friends and blogger and I used Kiko #407 for letter Q, since 407 in italian is "quattrocentosette". :DResponderEliminar
Anyway, love this polish, it's in my wishlist but I don't think I will buy it in the future, shipping costs from UK are too expensive now (thank you Royal Mail, thank you! :/ ).
What a great shade of pink!ResponderEliminar
If you're going to wear bubblegum pink, it's definitely a great shade! And I think it looks great on your nail shape/length. :-)ResponderEliminar
LOLOL I love your writing! If I had any time to rad this during work day, it would brighten it up completely. I just finished it with one of those wide smeared all over the face smiles.ResponderEliminar
I'd let you go with the cheat. I do have a couple of Q polishes both by name and brand but I love your Ingenuity and just for that you get 12 points from me ;-)
Oh and... ya, this is a pretty polish. Like it a lot!
and even I wear pink today :-P
This is awesome! I dream about nail stuff too haha. Such a pretty shade of pink :)ResponderEliminar
IllamasQua... yeah, you've got the Q! ;) Very pretty pink!!ResponderEliminar
Beautiful! Love them!!ResponderEliminar
Come by soon
Se te ve genial! Yo también pensé en hacer un mani 'quick' o 'quiet' pero finalmente me decidí por las acolchadas!!!ResponderEliminar
Very pretty, classic and feminine!!! Love it, love you!ResponderEliminar
So you must fill me in on what's the difference between a quick cheat and a slow cheat?!? Bahahahaha! Good color choice, looks great on you!ResponderEliminar
Your quick cheat works for me! :)ResponderEliminar
wonderfull. Waiting for you to visit my blogResponderEliminar
Cuánto tiempo hacía que no pasaba por aquí, qué mal... Siempre es genial ver tu blog y tus cuidadas manicuras. Cómo vas con el diseño?
Este rosa es una preciosidad, yo siempre seré fan del rosa Barbie (adoraba esa muñeca)
Loella is a very pretty girl :)ResponderEliminar
Haha!! I love your "quick cheat" idea! That's a very pretty shade and it looks great on you :)ResponderEliminar
I love pink nails. They are classy yet naughty at the same time. They make a bold yet beautiful statement. I think that pink nails says that you are confident in yourself and care free. Thanks for sharing the pics and tips :)ResponderEliminar
