Just Another Mani Monday #2


OPIxPeanuts Good Grief! As nice a yellow polish as I've ever seen, not to mention I'm a big fan of Charlie Brown and the whole gang. I picked this up in the miniatures collection they produced, but I'd love to pick up a full size of this truly enjoyable yellow. I used three coats, which is a bit much, but as far as yellow polish goes, I found this to be the easiest apply of any I've tried in recent memory. Now if only I could figure out where this is on sale! Good Grief!

Winter is Coming

It's getting cold here. I'll admit that I'm a fall girl, but I'll also admit that my style devolves with every degree below 40. In an effort to keep it up as long as possible, here are some slammin' fall options, for however much longer fall decides to last. People still say slammin', right? If not, then I choose lustable. I know that's not a word.

Just Another Mani Monday

Hey hey hey everyone.  I have had a really crazy few months, if I'm being perfectly honest. But I'm starting to pull myself back together, and I have a lot of little bits and bobs I've collected over the past few months to share with you! To start off, I'm going to be featuring a recent manicure every Monday. If I don't do a regular post, I'll never get through my whole collection, and if I can't do that, I probably shouldn't be adding to it :/ Here we go!


Top: Julep Avni, Sinful Colors Cauldron Couture Cauldron strikes me as an odd word. Yeah. But I'm digging this green and black irregular glitter topper over Julep's Northwestern purple with a slight pink duochrome. Go 'Cats. No, I do not want to talk about this weekend's game.

Middle: Kiss Nail Dress 62179/HKDS14 Great name, right? Seriously, though, I could never do this to my own nails and for $2, I don't feel bad only wearing these for two days crap out on me. Perfect for this month! Snagged mine at Walgreens about a week ago, but I haven't seen them in any other Walgreens, so if you see 'em, get 'em. They're real fun.

Bottom: OPI WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!?, random glitter from Michael's So that's  name I can totally get behind. The black is from the OPIxPeanuts collection for Halloween, and it's a good solid black. I was having a hard time finding the exact right Halloween colored glitter, so obviously I just went and bought a bunch of glitter. Obviously.

Where the Hell Did August Go?

Konichiwa, bitches.

I just felt like saying that. Big apologies for my absence, my parents and little sister visited the first weekend of August to see my show, then I finished up at one job the next week, and started another the week after that. Here we are a week later, and I am rather unpleasantly ill. Curse my affinity for working in childcare. Those babies are just so stinkin' cute!

I was wondering, though, if you, beloved readers, might have any suggestions as to what you'd like to see here on Stranded in Chicago as we move inexorably toward fall? Any thoughts you have would be greatly appreciated, and I'll compose some posts based on whatever y'all's awesome ideas might be. In the meantime, I'll try to be better about posting, but I tell ya, the sick does tend to get you down.

Peace, love, and Thursday.
