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!
