    It looks splash to me. Shouldn't it be blue though. It looks like there is barring coming in on the tail feathers.

    Well, The only solution I can think of for this is that your polish are carrying Ressesive White. Where did you get them?

    Any chance your black is very dark blue instead?

    Quote:That was what I was going to say. You can have a black that came from blues, that can actually be a very dark blue that appears to be black. So you take one of those and put it with a splash and you would likely get some splash
     
  7. Hi! In the pic, her tail feathers look blue. Are they blue in person?
