Kester Black- Parrot [Swatch]

Hey guys! Today I've got a polish from a new-to-me brand to share with you, Kester Black- Parrot! Kester Black is an Australian company, so it's harder to get in the US, but I received this shade in a nail polish Secret Santa!

I've seen a lot of gorgeous Kester Black polishes, but haven't tried one until now. Let's take a look!

Parrot is a vibrant, slightly blue-leaning green creme.

Artificial light, two coats:

Okay, so this particular shade of green translates to digital photos really poorly. It's a shame because it's very unique! It's got a lot of blue in it, and just looks really creamy and vibrant- I don't know how to describe it!

I did have to color correct these photos, and while they are fairly close, I don't think they do justice to the real thing. *Sigh*

Window-filtered daylight:

Outside, shade:

Formula: It's on the thicker side, pigmented, and very creamy! It self-levels and has a little bit of a crelly feel. Opaque in two coats! If all Kester Black cremes are like this, then I definitely need some more!

What do you think?
