Hi Everyone! I did a really awesome mani and after I was done I thought oooh hey this looks Harlequin-ey which made me think of the time I bought my very first Harlequin Romance! The book was called Moon Tide, by Rebecca Stratton. Back then I believe it was 75 cents and I rode my bike a couple of miles down the street--okay it was probably like 5--to buy it at the Piggly Wiggly. I was 12 years old. Yep I started reading the "hardcore" stuff at 12 and quickly moved from contemporary romances to the bodice rippers. No "tween" stuff for me--no teen fiction stuff for me ever.
Despite all I've read and how I'm even more hardcore now, I never found it appealing in any way shape or form to read books or watch a television series where the "kids" were in high school "doing" it! I can't believe how many adults watch this stuff either--I guess I'm still a prude at heart lol!
To do my nails I did a lovely tape mani with Sinful Beah Khaki and OPI Casino Royale and then I stamped with Awaken and DRK-B
I love the color combination of Casino Royale and Beau Khaki together!
And I just love this almost barbed wire image from DRK-B
I feel "redeemed" after a couple of let down mani's I've done lately
Do you see the Harlequin look or is it just me????
Another winter storm is bearing down! Winter Storm Q is headed East--I hope if any of you are in it's path you stay safe!
Thanks for stopping by--I hope you all have a fantastic day!
