Hare Polish Return to Nature Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Return to Nature Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “beige/khaki crelly (creme-jelly) with a mixture of small gold and silver glitters, plus a dusting of small white squares pwith gold shimmer.” It’s a subtly warm-toned beige jelly finish with white, square-shaped glitters, gold and silver glitters–the gold glitter tends to look more subdued and yellowy within the base color. I couldn’t think of any dupes, and China Glaze Fast Track was the only glitter, plus beige, shade that came to mind.

It’s semi-opaque after two coats, as anticipated with the jelly finish, but very even and smooth. The glitter dispersed incredibly evenly across the nail without needing to be pulled into place at all. I loved the consistency on Return to Nature; not too thick or too thin, and very easy to manage–thinner to the average jelly polish–so there was no pooling along the edges or streakiness. I normally get a week of wear with Hare’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

Hare Polish Married to the Monarchy Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Married to the Monarchy Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blend of matte teal hexes and squares, rich red hexes and squares in varied sizes [with] silver shimmer.” It’s a mix of large, bright blue and red square and hexagon-shaped glitter with smaller silver shimmer in the background–and all suspended in a clear base.  It’s such a cheery mix of colors–and I think it could work over a lot of different base colors.

I applied two coats of the glitter top coat alone on my thumbnail so you can have a better idea of the density and composition of the top coat, and then one coat layered over Revlon Rose Gold. One coat (layered) has quite a bit of glitter, and the glitter distributed fairly evenly and easily despite the larger glitter pieces–I didn’t have to fish them out or anything–and I felt like there was a good balance of blue/red. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it didn’t pool along the edges.  I usually get a week of wear out of Hare’s formula with no chipping and minor tip wear.

P.S. — The brand will be restocking their shop with the spring range soon!

Hare Polish Hooky at the Hamlet Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Hooky at the Hamlet Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Hooky at the Hamlet Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright shamrock green jelly … with white glitter in different shapes, sizes, and textures, along … glowing-blue hexes and very subtle purple shimmer.” It’s a brightened bluish-teal with white square and hexagon-shaped large glitter pieces and then finer white glitter, blue hexagons, and bluish-purple shimmer. Zoya Zuza has a similar coloring but doesn’t have the white glitters. MAC Ocean Dip is cream (no glitter at all).

The consistency was a little thick–thicker than the average jelly finish–and it took a bit longer to dry down (I actually ended up squishing slightly into my pinky nail with my ring fingernail). The glitters dispersed mostly evenly, but some of them did pull towards the top of my nails on the second coat. It is semi-opaque, as a jelly finish is supposed to be, and if you wanted more opaque color, I’d go with three coats or use a teal base color. I typically get a week of wear out of Hare’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping. The brand should be restocking their spring range within the next week or so!

Hare Polish Let Them Eat… What? Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Let Them Eat… What? Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Let Them Eat… What? Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft white jelly with a blend of various shapes/sizes of hot orange, baby pink, white & gold glitter.” It’s a warm-toned, white jelly base with yellow/gold, pinky-red, white, and orange glitters that range from hexagon to square to circle in shape.

It has semi-opaque color after two coats, and the glitter distributed evenly for the most part, though a little tapping and pulling for a couple of areas would have improved the overall results. The base color was a bit streaky on the first coat, but a second coat covered the majority of that–and I noticed that where the glitter had more than one piece, it looked shadowy and gave a slight uneven appearance, even though the underlying base color was actually rather even. It kind of felt like an optical illusion. You’ll definitely want a thicker top coat with this one, because it is bumpy without.  I usually get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping with Hare’s polishes.

Fyrinnae Jade Ghost Eyeshadow

Fyrinnae Jade Ghost Eyeshadow
Fyrinnae Jade Ghost Eyeshadow

Fyrinnae Jade Ghost Eyeshadow ($8.25 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “slightly shimmery pale white-green … “an iridescent glow of light green shimmer and a touch of subdued sparkle.” It’s a pale, aqua green with a subtle golden shimmer-sheen. I don’t really have anything quite like this in my stash. Lancome Fashion Forward is the closest, but it is bluer and less golden. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #4 is greener, less aqua/pastel.

Jade Ghost has a very soft texture that really starts breaking away the moment your brush hits the surface, so be careful not to swirl your brush too much in it, as you won’t need to in order to get the powder onto your brush. It is slightly powdery as a result. When applied over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy, it loses all trace of powderiness, and the powder smooths out. Applied dry, it is ever-so-slightly powdery but still has good color payoff. It is prone to sheering out when used dry, though. I tried it without any base, and then I also wore it over Pixie Epoxy, and with no base, it lasted seven hours well but had some fading after eight hours, while over Pixie Epoxy, it lasted eight hours without creasing or fading. Pixie Epoxy is not a primer, but it is so commonly used with Fyrinnae’s eyeshadows that I felt it imperative to test it underneath the eyeshadow.

If you prefer your eyeshadows loose, this shade began its life as one, and you can purchase it in loose form as well. The pressed eyeshadows should be restocked soon, per Fyrinnae’s website.

Hare Polish Dauphine of Decadence Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Dauphine of Decadence Nail Lacquer
Hare Polish Dauphine of Decadence Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Dauphine of Decadence Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “mixture of gold glitter in several sizes of hex & square glitter, with a sprinkling of pale mint green hexes as a subtle accent [with] striking gold shimmer [in a clear base].” It is a mix of multi-sized bits and pieces of gold glitter, from hexagon to square to circular-shaped. Decadence is a very apt word to use in the name of this shade, because it’s right-on (and when I initially swatched it, I thought, “Opulence,” so I was on the right track!).

As it is designed to be used as a top coat, I layered one coat over Color Club Beyond, and then to show the look of the glitter itself, so you can think about other base colors to use it over, I applied two coats alone on my thumb nail. What I liked most about this was the small gold shimmer and glitter that helped to fill in the “background,” in a way. The smaller particles were very easy to spread across the nail without worrying about too much in one place. This top coat does need a little pulling and tugging to get some of the larger glitter pieces into place to ensure there are no parts of the nail that look bare. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it dried down fairly quickly. I typically get a week of wear out of Hare’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping. Hare will be restocking their shop soon with the spring collection!
