Ah, Sunday. I have a love/hate relationship with Sundays. I love them because I'm home, and I hate them because they mean I have to go to bed before 1 a.m. (or at least try to) and then it's back to work on Monday.

There's a twisted little part of me way deep on the inside that wishes it was last year. I may have been in some pretty major pain, but it was the start of 4 months off work. Of course it was also the beginning of the end for my work life as I knew it. If I had never had that damn surgery, my job never would have been turned into a part-time, you now earn less than half of what you did but basically do the exact same amount of work kind of thing. It makes me kind of hate having to go there now, but unfortunately I still need to work and certainly don't want to work anywhere else. The one bright spot of that job is the fact that I really do love my bossman 99% of the time. I know that not everybody can say that about the person that writes their paychecks.

Last night I decided to do a mani that I've actually wanted to do for probably over a year. It was pretty much copied from one that I saw on Pinterest that came from Lucysstash. She did her stripes wider than I did and is more perfect than what I managed, but I still think it's pretty.
OPI Did you Ear About Van Gogh, Unnamed Color Club Brown, Julep Rachel, Frederick's of Hollywood Starlet, striping tape
I don't own any of the polishes she used, so I started with OPI Did You Ear About Van Gogh. For the stripes I used striping tape with a dark brown Color Club that has no name, Julep Rachel and Starlet, which is a polish I got from Frederick's of Hollywood for 50 cents.

I only had time to do one hand last night, and now I'm sitting here wondering if I want to do the other hand today or just take it off and do something else.  It's still early so I'll decide later.

I see I left the attractive hanger laying on the cupboard for my pic. I'm hanging onto it for when Kev gets home so he can break off the pinchy ends for me. Those things make great chip clips! It's not something I had ever thought of, but my friend that watches our dogs when we're out of town had one on something she had brought here. Genius!

There ya' not only got a mani, you got a handy little kitchen tip.

You're welcome.


  1. Well, those are MY colors! I love that mani!!!! I wondered about the hanger, you just know I would have asked! hahahaha

    1. LOL....I figured I'd better mention the hanger.
