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!

B+
It's not as easy to apply as the average polish or even a lot of the Hare shades I've worked. The consistency is on the thicker end of the spectrum.

    I love this color! I am NCGhost so this color *pops* on me. Since I have very short nails, the sheerness isn’t as obvious. This polish makes me think of Lucky Charms for some reason and I get quite cheerful. Thank you so much for introducing me to this brand!

  4. Freaking laughing reading this thread.. 18thcenturyfox has a way with words

  5. I love this! It makes me yearn for summertime! I think I’m going to order this one.

  6. Cute :-) It has so much depth and dimension, very cool.

  7. Gerri

    That’s the longest nail polish name I have ever seen! It’s pretty though.

  8. Beautiful! I think it would look great layered over China Glaze’s For Audrey or a similar shade.

  9. VickyM

    Cute color, even though out of the three it´s my least favorite. I really like the gold one, but I don´t know if they would deliver it to my country…

  10. Lola

    It reminds me of toothpaste!

  11. This is so cool! I love the whole effect of this polish.

  12. Kali

    I don’t even care if it’s thick. It’s SO cute.

  13. Kat
