Here’s another Stranger Things-inspired mani to add to…oh wow, six other manicures I’ve done in honour of my favourite television show. You’re living under a rock if you don’t know that season 3 of the hit Netflix show just dropped, which is really where I should be if I want to avoid spoilers. So not only can I NOT talk, because I am busy watching season 3 – just two episodes in; I really want to parcel them out this season instead of just gulping them back – but I literally CANNOT talk, because I can’t talk to anyone until I’ve finished watching it and/or they’ve also watched it so we can (not) talk about it together.
This super simple, striping tape-enabled mani reminds me of Stranger Things’ opening credit graphics, which are NOT simple – that’s why I did this inspired-by manicure instead of attempting to do the title lettering. No way was that one going to turn out on my tiny nails!
For this manicure, I used a base coat of Different Dimension’s cherry red holo, Naughty, under a bit of artfully arranged striping tape and two coats of Lilypad Lacquer’s black holo, Rainbows in Space. This is one of those manicures that I actually prefer in the shade, but you can’t deny that bonkers holo effect out in the sun, even if technically, it’s nothing the Upside Down ever sees.

Same. Sing it, sister. I picked the wrong month to follow David Harbour on insta bc he’s like a little kid who wont stop talking about it! He keeps posting FEELINGS and allusions and I’m all, shut up man! We haven’t binged it all yet.
That dude is such an enigma (wrapped in a lot of flop sweat) – he looks like a beast and behaves like a child. And that’s kind of Hopper’s whole vibe this season (and I’m enjoying it very much.) Four episodes in and it’s GOOD. Binge and enjoy it soon so we can talk about it!
