Some items in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

It’s already time for April’s Polish Pickup! This month’s theme is famous works of art, and there are so many good polishes for the theme! Today I have one to share with you from Aurora nail lacquer.

This month, Aurora has brought us a gorgeous flakie topper called For the Quill of the Cock. I was excited to see that after I had liked last month’s flakie topper so much. This one was completely different, but no less gorgeous!

The Quill of the Cock is based on “Girl with Peacock Earrings” by artist Yulia Brodskaya. I hadn’t heard of this artwork before, but it is so gorgeous! Check it out, she has some other amazing artworks as well.

The artwork is so colourful, and that comes through in this topper as well. I can’t even list all the colours I am seeing – from cool blues, greens and purples, to yellows and oranges. Here I am showing just one coat of The Quill of the Cock over a black base (Sinful Colors Black on Black).

So many colours! I wanted to see how it would look with even MORE flakes, so I took a macro with three coats over a black base:

It’s even more colourful! It makes me think of a kaleidoscope. This would be a really fun topper to use for some spacey nail art!

I was really in the mood for some bright, summery colours as I’m willing the warmer weather to get here, so I decided to try this topper over a vibrant orangey coral.

Here I am showing one coat of The Quill of the Cock over OPI Hot & Spicy.

This is a really fun combination, especially when you see it close up! I think I liked it better over the black base, but this was also cool! There are so many colour combinations to try.
