Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head…

…Just like the man whose feet are too big for his bed, nothing seems to fit… 🎶🎵

When I was a child of about five or six years, my father would sing this song to me. And for some reason unfathomable to him at the time, and later on, to me as well, it would annoy me to no end! I would get furious when he sang this, so of course he sang it everytime I entered the room. To this day, I cannot listen to this song without remembering the irritation I felt at the time!

This month, I joined in the Magnetic Magic collaboration on Instagram (#magneticmagicnail). Basically, each month we have a theme for nail art using magnetic polish. This month, the theme was rain. (I thought that was such a lovely theme!)

The base is two coats of the lovely Masura Mountain Azurite (904-171), a deep navy blue polish with light blue magnetic particles. On the second coat, I held my neodymium bar magnet vertically along my nail to get a strip of the liight blue along the nail. I’m not sure that comes across in the photos.

For the images, I reverse-stamped using two Creative Shop plates (24 and 60) and Moyra black stamping polish. I filled in the rain drops and puddles with NeverMind Polish Siren Song, the clouds with Blush Lacquers Santorini, and the umbrella with Picture Polish Pooh.

I wanted to wear this mani forever! I love how delicate Siren Song is – it has a ethereal, translucent quality to it that seemed perfect for an image of water. Santorini is a very pale white-blue with strong red-green shimmer and seemed a good choice for the clouds. The whole manicure just appeared to glow, and I could not have been happier with how this one worked out! Beginner’s luck? Possibly, but I’m not complaining!

I’m just beginning to play around more with my various magnets and trying to learn how to get different patterns and manipulate the magnetic shimmers. I only just got into magnetic polish a few months ago, but I’m deeply enthralled by them. Do you use and love magnetic polish? What are some of your favourite magnets to use? Let me know in the comments below, and until the next post, sing this with me!
