Indie: HARE The Illuminated Life Collection swatches
Here's more HARE spam from my huge HARE haul last month!
The first three pictures are with flash and really accentuate the glowy disco glitters (these polishes are PACKED with them). For the most part, I found these to look more subtle IRL, as you can hopefully tell in the fourth and fifth pictures of each set (both taken without flash). The fifth pic is taken with my dinky ol' P&S camera.
I found the formula to be a little tricky because of all the glitter in there, but overall it's not too difficult.
My favourite is Atolla because the blue flash is a little more apparent against the base colour as compared to the others. I like the other three, but they are not particularly flattering on my skin tone.
You can get these at either Nikole's Etsy shop or at Llarowe.
Electric Flame - 3 coats on its own
Bury the Hatchetfish - 3 coats on its own
Bury the Hatchetfish (1 coat) over Nina Never Glum Plum - in the flash pictures, this looks awesome, but IRL I didn't really like how this looked layered.
Medusa Luminosa - 3 coats on its own
Atolla - 3 coats on its own
Hope these swatches help!
It's close to American Thanksgiving!!! I am looking forward to my 4 day weekend so much! We are also getting our Christmas tree this weekend from Home Depot :D Since we go back to Canada for Christmas and New Years, we miss out on the last two weeks of "Piney-time" (we name our tree Piney the first, second, third, etc.), so we think it's ok to get him a little early :)
