Indie: HARE The First Collection: Reformulated swatches
These are the last bottles of HARE I ordered in October. The formula on these is so, so smooth. I did have to be a little careful letting the first coat dry before applying the second, though, because a glitter might scrape the first jelly layer a bit making it appear streaky. I really hope Archipelago comes back soon!!
You can get these at either Nikole's Etsy shop or at Llarowe.
Pegasus - 2 coats on its own
Pegasus - 1 coat over Essie Bangle Jangle
Edited to add: I received a few comments about the appearance of curling glitters in Bisbee. The bottle that I have (and PURCHASED myself) does not have curling glitters on the nail at all, but photographs that way (i.e., reflective curling). I always wear a coat of QDTC over my manis, often 2 coats for very glitter heavy polishes, so I would tell you if any polishes had glitter that were taco-ing and sticking out out of the surface (because that would drive me CRAZY. I cannot stand anything other than a perfectly smooth mani). I obviously can only speak for my own bottle, but if you are concerned about possible tacos in your polishes, please always contact the indie creator or vendor you purchased from. Thank you. I created a follow-up post here showing reflective curling.
Bisbee - 3 coats on its own. This also leans quite green on my skintone (bah!)
Bisbee - 1 coat over Misa Dirty Sexy Money. I wish I tried this over Nails Inc Warwick Way!
A Positive - 3 coats on its own
A Positive - 1 coat over Essie Limited Addiction
