Summer Challenge: Day 20 - Jungle Mani or Parrots

I can't wait to see what everyone came up with for today's challenge!  I am thinking that there are going to be some really awesome designs!
I had a couple different thoughts on how I wanted to complete this challenge.  In the end I decided to go with an abstract design.  I knew that I wouldn't be able to draw a parrot and I didn't want to do a jungle design.  In the end I decided to focus on the colors of the parrot and the feathers.  If you have ever Googled parrots, you would see all the amazing colors that they can have.  Some of the colors are simply stunning!

I started with 2 coats of Essence Nude It.  I was going to use a white polish, but I felt that I have been using white too much.  However, I do wish I had used the white base.  The colors would have had a better pop to them.

I used all of the following polishes, randomly, for the design.
Zoya Kimber, Zuza, Meg, Robyn, Dree, Pippa and Carly.

I randomly picked polish and added them 3 at a time to the feather stamp on BM214.

I coat of SV.

Zoya polishes are proving again and again to be great stamping polishes! Just look how clean the stamp is and how the color is so bright!  I really wanted off the wall colors for my parrot nails and I think I achieved that.  I think parrots would love to be glittery and purple!!! :)
