Hare Polish Rococo Grandeur Nail Lacquer
Hare Polish Rococo Grandeur Nail Lacquer

Hare Polish Rococo Grandeur Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “baby blue jelly with soft pink glitter in several shapes and sizes, with gold accents [with blue shimmer].” It’s a grayish, pale blue creamy jelly with small, pale gold glitter and then larger pink glitter in circular, hexagonal, and square shapes. I don’t have a dupe for this, and the only shade that it reminded me of was China Glaze It’s a Trap-eze which has a much whiter base color, more glitter, and very bright/colorful glitter at that.

I had some trouble getting this shade to apply evenly–the base color just looked patchy and uneven no matter how many attempts I made to get everything to play nicely together. I applied two coats of the polish alone, and it had semi-opaque color coverage with good glitter content that spread fairly evenly. It was just that bluish base color that didn’t want to cooperate. The consistency didn’t seem too thick or too thin either (a little thicker than the average polish but as thick as most jelly finishes are), but the problem persisted. Hare’s formula wears a week on me with minor tip wear but no chipping.

P.S. — They will be restocking their Etsy shop soon!

B-
The concept was interesting, but I couldn't get the application to work well--the underlying base color looked streaky, patchy, and uneven. The glitter distributed evenly, and the color was just what a jelly finish would have.

    I like the way it looks, but then, I can’t ignore the application issue you’ve mentioned. :(

  2. Very Spring-y! I love this color! I wish the rating was higher haha.

  3. Sarah

    Wow, I don’t think the name could be more perfect!

  4. I wanted this one badly, but something about the blogger photos made me think twice. I see it looks similarly goopy weird on your nails too. A thick coat of Gelous on top might fix that a bit, but it still looks like a tricky one to apply. Pass for me.

    Looks like it could use a base colour to layer over and it’d be fine. :)

  6. I love the color combo of this, too bad it doesn’t apply as well as some of the others. I’d never have expected that I’d consider buying a chunky glitter polish like this but after seeing all them here, I’m really wanting that beige one

    It’s beautiful at a glance… up close it’s a mess :(

  8. Fay

    Is that a new wedding ring? :)

    KB Shimmer does a fabulous version of this called Farrah.

  10. Look it perfect ! I agree with Sarah that need to modify name. :)
