Hello polish lovlies, hope this day finds you well. I have for you today Hare polish illuminated fall collection. Ever since i saw these babies on Hares facebook page i knew they were going to be mine and as soon as they were released on Llarowes website i was on it like a car bonnet....only to fail at the first hurdle, they sold out in minutes!! So me being the trooper i am i stayed awake until 2 am and bagged myself the entire collection! I have waited patiently and when the dropped through my letterbox yesterday i swear to god i was squealing with delight...oooohing and ahhhhing at the beautifulness of them all.
I have been chomping at the bit to swatch these...yes i know its only a day but thats like 20 polish years isn't it?? So story over, lets get down to business. Ohhhh.....firstly let me tell you i am a HUGE Hare polish fan, i have acquired THE most stunning polishes from previous hare collections and as you may have guessed i was beyond excited to get these, so i am dying to tell you these were all faultless like every other hare i have. Sadly i cant do that. I will start with my Nemesis of this collection.
Electric flame..ahhhh i could cry at this because the colour is STUNNING...the glitter in this is STUNNING....everything about it screams beautifulness in the bottle. For me this polish had one of the most difficult applications i have had for a while. It was really thick and very streaky and left my nails looking quite bumpy. Now i am going to try this again with a touch of thinner in it so i will report back when i have tried it...i would also wear a base colour with this as even with 3 thick coats it wasn't opaque enough. As i said the colour and glitter were awesome, in the flesh the colour of this is a light coral peach colour with cool purple and blue fine glass flecks. This had all the makings to be a super polish, it is pretty and feminine and it beaks my heart not to give this a better review.
Now on to bury the hatchetfish. This is the one that caught my eye straight away...i love a brown polish and i love glitter so we were onto a winner straight away. This one was better application although another that is in definite need of some thinner as again it was very thick. Aside from the thickness this is a stunning polish. It is a light brown jelly base packed with blue glass flecks. This is super super stunning and a sure winner if you like a good brown like me! I layered this over Glitter gal suede.
Awwww now we have medusa luminosa. Now i have stacks of purple and for that reason i wasn't as enthusiastic about this one...not because i didn't see the stunning beauty of it even on the screen because i did, its just simply because i thought i would have one similar. Nope i don't, and let me tell you after not really being blown away by the previous two due to the application issues this was the saver....Hare quality had indeed been restored...oh my!!! It is a stunner....this made me smile again indeed. Filled with pink, blue and gold glass flecks packed into a super bright and pretty purple base this gave me renewed hope for the collection!! I adore it. application was brilliant, just the right consistency. I think any purple fan should own this one, take it from me you will need it in your collection!
now here we have atolla. Gasp at the beauty of this one...another that restores my faith...and as a pink polish lover i definitely don't own one like this! This is one of the prettiest pinks i own and really does glow It is a girly fuchsia colour, again like the others it is packed with blue glass flecks which truely do illuminate the whole look of this. Once again application was beautiful on this. I cant say how much i loved this polish...once again any pink polish fan should own this as a matter of urgency as it really is a stack more prettier in the flesh....and i can't believe this is still in stock on Llarowe??! after the rest sold out so spectacularly this one was the winner of the collection for me!
So now you guys have it, the whole collection has been done for your viewing pleasure...what do you think?? i would be really interested to know if any of you guys have this collection and if you had any application issues....especially with electric flame. I wish i could have given this whole collection a whole 5 stars, electric flame really disheartened me......bury the hatchetfish almost had me back but the medusa luminosa and atolla were without doubt the stand out of the collection and despite my disappointment with electric flame i am still a huge hare fan!
