Ms. Sparkle "Amaura" - Polish Pickup January 2019

Hello lovelies!

Tomorrow is the start of another Polish Pickup weekend - from Friday to Monday you can go nuts on an endless collection of polishes by numerous brands, this month inspired by mythology. Ms. Sparkle came up with this beautiful polish inspired by recent mythology, Pokémon, and specifically "Amaura":

"Amaura is a calm creature that lived long ago in a cold land without violent predators. It is a quadruped, dinosaurian Pokémon similar to sauropods. It has a long neck and a short, stubby tail. Above its large, deep blue eyes are two sail structures, which are yellow at the bottom fading into pink towards the tips. These sails have an iridescent appearance. Additionally, the sails change colors to reflect Amaura's mood (green when happy, blue when sad, and red when angry), as seen in Pokémon-Amie. It has a light blue body with a white belly. A single dark blue crystal adorns each side of its body; these crystals permanently remain at freezing cold temperatures, as demonstrated in Pokémon-Amie, where the crystal freezes the hand that touches it. While its forelegs lack claws or digits, the hind legs each have a single white nail. As shown in the anime, Amaura have the ability to create auroras. Despite its restoration, it is not expected to live long in the heat of current climates."(source: Bulbapedia)

"Amaura" is a pretty ice blue crelly with aurora pigments, hilites and holo sparkles. The pigments sparkle a golden orange, which contrasts the blue perfectly. It is opaque in two coats and applies very easily. Shown here with glossy top coat.

The shimmer invited some mattification, hence:

Ahhh look at the beauty! I didn't have time to do nail art with it, but I am thinking a Frozen-inspired manicure is a must here.

This beauty is available for pre-order Friday 4th through Monday 6th for a $11.00 in The Polish Pickup's webshop. If you're a fan of light blue, this is a must-have!
