A2Z Series - Q is for Quirky

Well, it is Thursday again, and time for this week's A2Z challenge - the prompt is Q for Quirky.
I guess if I'd thought about it for long enough I'd have come up with something quirky but my first thought was that it would be the perfect opportunity to use a Quirk polish. Sadly, Kerry at Quirk does not make polishes any more, and I think Songbird was from one of her last collections.
I have actually worn it but never blogged it as I wanted to try it over a different base.
It is such a pretty polish made up of white opaque glitters and lots of pretty pastel iridescent glitters. I first wore this over a dark brown base but really wanted to try it over a nude or pastel base. At the time I couldn't decide which colour pastel to try, but now that I have the stamping bug I feel I have to use it over a multi-coloured stamped base.
I started with a base of Nails Inc Haymarket, a lovely pastel minty green.
I then used 3 Virtuous polishes, Deborah (ooh that's me!!!!), Miriam and Queen Ester and the camouflage pattern on Vivid Lacquer plate VL 010 to stamp a multi-coloured image onto my nails.
I then added a coat of Songbird and top coated it all.
I think this is pretty Quirky ? I am quite pleased with it, although the pastel glitters have got a little lost, I still need to re-use Songbird over a nude base I think.
