Colors by Llarowe - Amy with Emily de Molly Queen of the Sea

Green and blue colour shifting flakie polishes always make me think of peacocks or mermaids.  This time I went with Peacocks.

I started with a base of Emily de Molly Queen of the Sea which is a bright turquoise with a gold shimmer.  I then put two layers of Colors by Llarowe Amy on top.  Amy has green to blue colour shifting flakies as well as small holographic glitter.

I stamped the full nail image of peacock feather from EDM 04 plate using black polish.  On my middle finger, I stamped the single peacock feather design from the same plate using white polish. I then coloured in over the top of it using green, brown and blue polishes.  The end result actually look very hand painted, although you can see the sharper lines around to top feather edges that I couldn't achieve unless I had stamped.

Here is a swatch of Emily de Molly Queen of the Sea which I remembered to get because I covered it with the flakies.  I actually think that the golden shimmer might be a colour changer and shifts to green at acute angles, but I wasn't able to pick it up in my photos. 

Polish provided for consideration.
