Hare Polish Swatches!

Happy Friday! Anyone have fun plans this weekend? I'm thinking about going to the OC Fair this weekend. I need my yearly fill of people watching and a fried oreo haha. I heard that this year one of the food vendors at the fair is serving fried cereal. It never ceases to amaze me what people try to fry...I kind of can't wait until next year to see what the new weird thing is.

Today I have some Hare polish to share with you guys, yay! Hare was one of the first indie brands I ever heard of or bought from. For the longest time I missed out on the restocks, then Nikole took a long break from making polish but my persistence paid off and I was finally able to add a couple more of these beautiful polishes to my collection!

To see swatches & reviews of all 4 polishes click the read more button below!

Archiplago is a dark blue jelly with copper glitter. This was one of my very first indie purchase ever! I bought this way back in July 2011 according my my etsy history! I've wanted to post it a ton of times over the year but I usually wear it on it's own and it's so hard to get a good photo of that way for some reason. For the photos below I used 1 coat over Essie Go Overboard. Typically I wear this using 3 coats on it's own!


Asteroid Turf is a grassy green jelly with bright pink glitter. As soon as photos of Nikole's new polishes were posted on the Hare facebook page I died a little bit and put this at the top of my "will refresh etsy for hours to get this" list. This polish is why I like Hare polish, she is great at making combos that shouldn't work look great! The formula was great, a little thick but no application issues otherwise. I used 2 coats of Asteroid Turf on it's own for the photos below!

Heat Plague is orange, pink & purple glitter in a dark green jelly base. I waffled about getting this one, I took it out of my cart a couple times but eventually my love of green won and I bought it! I used 1 coat of Heat Plague over Essie Pretty Edgy for the photos below. You can also wear this on it's own, I haven't tried it yet but I'm guessing you'd need 3 coats to get it opaque.


Magic Mist is orange, pink, purple & blue glitter in a light milky purple jelly base. This is actually not one I bought, but a very nice surprise from Nikole. This was actually another that I put in and out of my etsy cart. I convinced myself I didn't need it and checked out then had regret about that and when I went back to get it, it was gone :(  The glitter in this one reminds me a bit of Heat Plague and I love the milky purple base! I used 1 coat of Magic Mist over Essie Play Date for the photos below.


Hare polish is available on etsy for $10 a bottle (I'm not sure if or when she will be restocking there). It is also available at for $12 a bottle. I'll have you know that while I was writing this post I went onto Llarowe to check the price and ended up buying 2 more bottles of haha!

  1. These all look lovely on you. I couldn't get Heat Plague to work for me, it always looked slightly muddy :(

  2. Yesss, a thousand times yes!! Hare is probably my favorite indie brand out there. I love how her polishes are more than just glitter in a clear base. Such great combos!
