Purple snow nails

One more holiday manicure. This

A little different as far as colors goes. I felt in a bit of a darker mood. Picture a Christmas night. A purply-blue background with silver snowflake (or because I'm not exactly a vituroso with a nail pen) a snowflake-like design. The two shades are from a Hot Designs kit. Unfortunately, I don't have the box anymore so the name of the colors escapes me.

 Oh well, anyway, I  hope you have fun with this and a merry Christmas.

Christmas nails

Another holiday inspired me to try another round of nail art. For my first set, last week, I started with basic stripes in Christmas colors.
The red, green, and silver work well together I think...

Then I realized, they do look very close to the Italian flag. Not a downside as I am from an Italian heritage, but I must say it wasn't exactly my original intent. And it was, I must confess, a bit of a mess. The tape tore off some of the polish and I had to fill in the gaps. Feh. Oh, well. I'm happy with the way it came out. This is Sephora by O.P.I in "A Color that Can't be Tamed" (the silver);  Sinful Colors in Gogo Girl; and the green is a mixture of a Sinful Colors shade of green, and Pure Ice in Saddle Me Up. That brand is one of my favorites.

 Are you doing any special nail art for the holiday?

Review: Journey of the Magi by Barbara Edwards

cover art by Debbie Taylor


Barbara Edwards

(Published by The Wild Rose Press)

My review copy purchased at Amazon

JOURNEY OF THE MAGI by Barbara Edwards tells a slightly different Christmas tale than you might be thinking, just on a glance at the title. In this story, widowed Noel Martin shows up in a Minnesota diner seeking shelter from a winter storm. The diner’s owner, Dan Longstreet, offers she and her children a meal and a place to sleep that night. Noel piques Dan’s interest and when she asks for a job, he gives her one.

Noel has promised to get her children home to Connecticut for Christmas, and so doesn’t plan on staying in town more than a week. But something about Dan warms the widow inside and she finds herself falling in love with him. When a snowplow driver wrecks her car, she has no choice but to stay longer. Christmas is nigh, will Noel decide to accept the gift of Dan’s love, or will she keep to her plan and head off for her home, as she planned?

In JOURNEY OF THE MAGI, Barbara Edwards has penned a short, sweet Christmas novella of family and romance that moves along at a nice clip. I think fans of holiday romances will enjoy it. I know I did.

If you’d like to add Journey of the Magi to your holiday reading list, it’s available for ebook readers at The Wild Rose Press, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Itunes, Kobo, and All Romance Ebooks.
