Hare Polish - Escape To Palm Springs

Hare Polish's Escape To Palm Springs was part of the A Box, Indied subscription box, sold in June by Llarowe.  I didn't get the box but I was lucky enough to find this baby in a blog sale.  I must say, it is now mine FOREVER. This polish, like all of the few Hare polishes I own, is amazing.



Isn't that just gorgeous?  This is three thin coats with topcoat.  Even though this is a glitter bomb polish, it is easy to work with and applies beautifully.  No issues at all with this polish.

Aaand MOARPICS! It has a deep purple base with pink and silver and copper glitters.  Like many Hare, the colors seem odd together but when you look at the make this face : 0_0


I kept this on for a few days and then I added a thin coat of Matte-ict by A Girl Obsessed, which is the best indie matte I've tried.  I love matte over glitter bombs because it makes the glitter POP!


Escape To Palm Springs is hard to find, but if you can, I highly suggest grabbing this polish!

New To Me Indie: Kinky By Treasures By Tan - Holo!

Shout out to my blogger pal Jayme (she runs Varnished Reputation, check it out!) for sending me Kinky, a gorgeous magenta holo from Treasures by Tan.  I actually had not heard of this brand until receiving this polish and I am definitely impressed.  Take a look:

This is three coats of Kinky with topcoat. The holo in this polish is gorgeous! The formula is smooth and flows easily. Dry time is average.

F.U.N. Lacquer: Crocus - Thermal Polish!!

I try not to spend too much money on a single polish, which usually means no non-US brands because the cost of shipping can really hike up the price of a single polish!  However, when I saw this amazing thermal from F.U.N. Polish, I had to have it!  (& I'm not telling you how much I spent, LOL)

Come on, my fellow polish obsessed friends, you know how it can!  Bottle shot:


Take a look at this in the warm state, dark purple, and the cool state, lilac:

Love, love, love this!  The swatch shows 3 coats, no topcoat.  I like a 3rd coat, even with a full coverage cream, because I hate VNL (visible nail line).  The formula is easy to work with, dries quickly, and builds up nicely for the finish you see here.



And cold:

But, US residents, beware of shipping prices! LOL, make sure you check your cart before you speed through and just buy this!
