Here's a swatch of two coats of Parrot Polish Blue Macaw with HK Girl top coat. Isn't it gorgeous? It's just like the color of a tropical sea. And the golden shimmer in it gives it a almost-duochrome look. Since it is pretty metallic, it does show some brushstrokes but, as usual, those look more prominent in photos than in real life.
The blue color also reminded me of the color of the tail feathers of an old pet I had for 10 years. He (or she...I never knew but I always thought of him as a boy) was a lovebird so I used MoYou London Tropical-06 to make a lovebird stamping decal with Mundo de Unas Black and Reddish, filled in with Rica Summer Mint and Mundo de Unas White. My decal got a bit wrinkled but I still liked it.
Then I stamped a feather-like image, also from MoYou London Tropical-06 using Rica Summer Mint and finished it off with HK Girl top coat.
And just because I miss my little guy, he's a photo of Bird many Christmases ago just chilling on the tree. Isn't he cute? And aren't his under feathers the exact color of this polish? Everyone was scared of him (including my Nana's dogs when I lived with her) but he was my buddy. When I decided I wanted a bird the salesperson told me that if you get two they bond with each other but if you get one they'll bond with their owner and I think that's true because he didn't bite at me like he did everyone else. That's not to say he actually listened when I would try to get him back in his cage. He was stubborn. Maybe that's why I always thought of him as a boy, haha!
'Til next time...
