Love is in the air!

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!
