Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

A very long time ago there was only one way to get music in your car, through a radio on an AM channel.  I actually remember when FM radio came to be in the 70's.   It was really exciting to hear Led Zepellin coming out of the car radio.  Anyway there was this really kind of silly song called "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" by BJ Thomas.  They always seemed to play it when  it rained and as I swatched my nails with this polish this song was just in my head. 
Yes, I was so excited to score both the blue and pink Illamasqua Raindrops.  I really like these polishes.  I don't know which one I like better but they do seem to have a different formula and I have no idea why.  The pink one was a little thicker but I think the reason for this is that the blue one has more of a jelly feel and the pink one has more of a cream feel.  I did need three coats for the blue and only two for the pink.  That is the only difference I could tell.  Come to think of it the blue is a jelly it did take a little longer to dry in between coats but not to the point where I was ready to throw it against the wall and when it did dry it was a firm dry not one of those gooie ones. NOtice the small white flakes in the bottle shots.   I got these at Sephora.  I just made sure that when they sent me a notice that they were back in stock I bought them right away.  Right, now Sephora has a special offer that you pay $25.00 for a year worth of free shipping.  I decided I am going to go ahead and purchase.  Even though, my Sephora is about two miles from where I live they don't always have what I want in the store so ordering is just easier and less disappointing.  I do order on line because I hate going to a store and they don't have what I want and I have to go home and order anyway.  I will give you all the code and post it on facebook as soon as I go through my email and find it.  Now for the swatches.  Enjoy.



And now the pink one.


Which is your favorite.  I don't know.  I just know that the pink is very lady like and the blue makes me feel like a baby.  Either way.   I am glad I was able to purchase these.
Ciao for now,
